From unique and delicious boxed lunches and BBQ at the office (What? No turkey sammie with oily chips and dry cookie?) to elegant, fine dining at your home or off-site event venue, our chefs can create the perfect menu creatively catered just for you.  What really makes us unique though is our ability to provide a fabulous culinary demonstration or perhaps some hands-on participation by your guests.  Hey, we are a culinary arts center.  It's what we do! 


Our chefs and staff have decades of combined experience catering for groups of 2 to 1000 and can guarantee an amazing experience and attention to detail that starts with creative direction (if needed!) and ends when we take out the trash so you don’t have to.


Let us help you take your event to the next level….
Bon Appetit!
