Orsika Barabas – Executive Sales, Event Planner

Oriska (pronounced OR-SHE-KA) is passionate about food and entertaining. She has evolved a "philosophy of food" where she creates every meal into an event. Oriska's appetite for cuisine and hosting has expanded into over a 30-year career as an accomplished caterer and event coordinator. Growing up throughout Europe, Oriska learned the art of creating parties catered around excellent food, life, music, and conversation. Orsika returned to the States for university, and received dual degrees in International Relations and French Literature from the University of San Diego. She is a polyglot, and speaks Hungarian, English, French, Spanish, and Italian. To this day, she enjoys traveling, learning new languages, and (of course!) trying new cuisines.   Local favorite – Little Lion Café & Bar in Pt. Loma
