Sascha Wolhandler

Stoli Oranj martini, straight up with a twist Sascha's 527 Cafe

Sascha Wolhandler describes herself as "an aging prom queen." However, most of Baltimore knows her as the dynamic caterer/restaurateur behind the 25-year-old Sascha's Catering and 8-year old Sascha's 527 Cafe, both of which she runs with her husband, Steve Suser. Wolhandler also works as a food stylist on movies filmed around Baltimore. Currently, she is doing just that for the Renee Zellweger/Chris Noth film, My One And Only, now in production here. Wolhandler and Suser live in Fells Point.


What are some of your favorite things?

Movies. I love Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?... Books ... I loved Answered Prayers by Truman Capote. It's so bitchy. I'd love to have drinks with Truman. It's too bad he's not around.


How do you like to spend your down time at home?

In my bed with a thousand magazines. Or on the couch with a thousand magazines is heaven. From food magazines to fashion magazines to some fancy shelter magazines like Veranda or Elle Decor. ... And being home in the middle of the day, when the sun comes through the windows and it's quiet in Fells Point. It's just grand.

Do you have a life motto?

My motto is to live life to the fullest. . I always like that Scarlett O'Hara thing: there's always another day when you're down. There's always tomorrow. ... ... If I have to be remembered, I want to be remembered as never being dull.
