Leslie Turner Bures

Originally from Atlanta, Leslie discovered her passion for food at an early age.  She grew up surrounded by wonderful cooks; her great grandmothers, grandmothers, and her mother all exposed her to the best in scratch made dishes and taught her the importance of cooking from the heart. 

In 1982, Leslie began cooking professionally with her very first catering business, Parsley’s Creative Cuisine.  Over the course of her 30+ year career, she has owned and operated several successful gourmet catering and special events businesses including the beautiful historic Bona Allen Mansion in Atlanta where she hosted over 100 events per year..

After moving to Pennsylvania with her husband in late 2003, she began her most recent full service catering venture, Artful Events, Inc. Clients enjoy her twist on creative dishes with a southern flair.  Leslie and her team specialize in beautifully presented buffets custom designed to suit the needs of individual clients.
