My House Social (formerly My House NOLA) was born in 2012 with the idea of empowering and showcasing the talent of culinary entrepreneurs from across New Orleans. Founder + CEO Barrie Schwartz first hosted a series pop-ups in her home, giving entrepreneurial chefs a platform for sharing their inventive and specialty fare. Since then, My House Social has grown into a customized catering company partnering with New Orleans most innovative chefs and beloved food trucks.

And we’re not stopping there! Our mission is to build unique experiences by connecting culinary entrepreneurs with hungry people, and we have some big plans. Check out our core values to learn more about My House Social.
