About Salt & Honey

Founded by Dominican-American Olivia Colt, Salt & Honey believes in using locally sourced and sustainably raised-and-caught produce, meat and seafood to create meals that are satisfying for the palate and responsible for the environment.  The Bay Area catering and events company has created memorable weddings, parties and corporate events for the likes of Facebook, One Kings Lane and Google, Salt & Honey is driven by the bounty of Northern California, finding inspiration in Mexican, French, Italian and Caribbean flavors.

At just 27, Olivia suffered from back-to-back strokes, leading to a six-month medical leave and an abundance of free time. With it, she began hosting small tasting dinners in the living room of her tiny apartment, with her mother acting as sous chef and lead server and her father as host and entertainer. Eventually hired to do daily lunches at two tech startups in San Francisco, she saw a viable career as a caterer. Olivia made her culinary dreams a reality with the launch of Salt & Honey. In 2012, Olivia had her third stroke, which finally led to the diagnosis of a rare blood disorder, Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria. Since then, treatments help manage her chronic illness and she has learned to balance her new normal while she oversees her growing business. Salt & Honey now employs culinary and hospitality professionals and a full-time staff of 6 who make both Olivia’s and their clients’ dreams come true.
