We did a team building class with Jan and it was fabulous! The food was amazing that we created and Jan made it fun and easy. It was a great event! Thank you Jan!


Your class was FANTASTIC Jan!!! I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed every single minute of it. We have a pretty crazy fall, but you will see Bill in Nov and we will both sign up for your next Paleo class – now that I know what all the fuss is about.Thanks for a fantastic afternoon – it was worth the wait! Hugs!


The food was perfect. Really looked exactly and tasted exactly like what we were hoping for. Thanks so much and we will definitely be in touch if we have any future events.


Jan’s Cooking School has opened up a whole new world for us; from accommodating a special birthday cake ordered- to teambuilding activities.

My group enjoys and appreciates the thoughtfulness of remembering their birthdays with their special, preferred cake. Nothing is out-of-line or impossible. I always get rave complements for these cakes/cupcakes.

Even ‘team building’ is fun, entertaining, and enjoyed by all. Everyone pairs up and prepares a special dish which we all enjoy family style.

Jan and CE have accomplished something that many businesses can’t do; and they do it because of the love for family and friends. They are very patient, personable, and always go the extra mile.
Thank you and bless you!

The Fellowship of Companies for Christ had their 7th annual Southwest regional conference in March of 2012. We were highly recommended to inquire about catering with Jan Laird of “Jan’s on 4th”. We could not have been more pleased with our choice for caterer. Jan is a wonderfully talented and pleasant woman. She listened intently to our requests for the meals and followed every detail to the letter.

We had a variety of settings in our conference and all experiences exceeded our expectation. We had a sit down dinner for 120 guests. The food was exactly as we ordered; prompt, hot, plated quickly, generous servings and homemade hot rolls to top it off.

The next event was a dessert buffet. Oh, my goodness we thought we had arrived at the window of a fine bakery. There were many selections of desserts, cut in petite servings, and presented perfectly for the guests to enjoy a taste of 1, 2, 3 or all of the selections. We had the best of chocolate covered strawberries, luscious lemon bars, neat little nutty bites and others. The next was always better than the last.

The staff was fantastic about keeping all plates filled and ready for service. Finally, the last afternoon we had a fajita buffet. The food was steaming hot, rapidly served from the caterers, generous in portions and even a bit for second helpings for those who desired them. The guacamole was some of the finest we have tasted in the southwest. Needless to say our food component of the conference was a hit and lead to great fellowship and networking.

We look forward to having Jan serve us in future events.

Jan was such an absolute pleasure to work with.  She was flexible and receptive to our budget, true to her word, and helped us come up with a fantastic menu for our wedding.  The food turned out delicious, and we’re still hearing from our guests how out-of-this-world the Italian cream cake was.  We’re so grateful to have found such a talented caterer and such a genuine and warm person to work with.

We’re still planning to sign up for a cooking class with you sometime soon! Hope all is well!


Imagine, moist tender chicken with garlic, lemon, olives, and caramelized onions. Served with garlic mash potatoes (the real deal) and honey glazed fresh roasted carrots. Served of course with a fresh baked dinner roll. Generous portions. 2 meal minimum. Delivered to homes in Albuquerque every Tuesday…why go out?” Having “Jan Meals” in my fridge and freezer-ready to heat and serve is a lifesaver. They are nothing like store bought meals. This is high quality, fresh food prepared by people who enjoy what they do. I know we enjoyed what we ate!

I have used Jan for over 7 years. Both as a single working professional and now that I am married with a family. She meets our needs by providing healthy, great tasting meals with a variety of choices that satisfy each of our individual preferences.

Jan not only catered our Wedding with over 250 attendees but also smaller parties.

Even though I prefer not to cook, I have taken several of Jan’s cooking classes which I also have enjoyed.

Whatever it is that you are looking for in a Personal Chef or Caterer, I highly recommend Jan and I am sure that you will also be most satisfied with her services.

Jan and her husband, C.E., have provided catering for our monthly business luncheons and have done an absolutely outstanding job.  We have been extremely pleased with the food, the service, the set-up and tear down, punctuality, professionalism and attention to detail.  These luncheons include bringing in tables, chairs, and linens each month, along with set up of a complete buffet lunch for 50 people.  Jan and C.E. provide quality, absolutely delicious food, including scrumptious desserts, on each and every occasion without fail.  They always arrive early for set up and have thought of every detail in advance.  I have also personally used Jan for private parties and functions. I highly recommend her to all of my friends and associates for any occasion!!

I have had the pleasure of taking numerous of my teams to have team building events at Jan’s on 4th.

Her cooking classes and instructions really are a great way to build unity and partnerships within an team while having a great time! Jan is very engaging and informative in her presentations and instruction and always keeps the atmosphere very positive and fun! I would recommend taking your work group or team to enjoy an afternoon or evening in Jan’s kitchen. You will not be disappointed.
