Our Story


What's the story behind "Chef Mom's Table", you ask? 

Well, I hope you have a few minutes and your popcorn ready, because here's my story......

Okay, so, just to make sure that we're on the same page, my name is Vickie Caldwell Fordham. More than half my life, consists of the food industry. I tried to run away from it; but, I just ended up coming back to it.. lol 

Let's fast-forward a little bit.... I became a single mother in 2011. In 2013, I married the love of my life and birthed my beautiful baby girl. During this time, I was in culinary school (for the 2nd time) full time, along with working for a few assisted living facilities, as one of their cooks. In that same year, I graduated from culinary school and birthed my 3rd and last child. 

While working for these companies, I noticed that I was always one of the hardest workers. I was never fulfilled and I missed my children immensely. Because I went to school full time and worked part time, I barely spent enough quality time with my children. So, in 2018, I decided to start my own catering business, TrebleClef Catering LLC. About a year later, I decided to do business as "Chef Mom's Table". 

Because I'm a wife and mother, I wanted to create a community that influences, educates, and empowers busy mothers and wives. Not only am I a chef;, but, I'm also a caterer and macro influencer. Welcome to the #chefmomsclub !!
