How to Choose the Perfect Caterer for Your Event

I got married in November, and I’m often asked if I prepared the food for my own wedding. Not only did using a catering service cut down on my stress day-of, but showing up to my own wedding smelling like onions with accents of sauce spatter was just not an option!

For me, food was still a hugely important part of my wedding, as I wanted guests to enjoy a fine dining experience. Our Philadelphia venue, Union Trust, worked with us to put together a menu that wowed guests and showcased our personalities and taste preferences. It was every bit as perfect as I’d hoped.

As a chef, I want each and every one of my clients to feel the same way. Even a small celebration, be it a bridal shower or bachelorette party, calls for catering services that show this same dedication to style, quality and personality.

As someone who has experienced both sides of the event-planning process, I know how to make your party one to remember. And I care that your vision is expertly executed from beginning to end. How do we go above and beyond to meet your expectations? At About the Table we:

Customize Menus
Just like your style, your palate is unique. We customize each catering menu to ensure you and your guests enjoy a personalized experience that reflects all the flavors and cuisines you love. No matter your theme, preferences or dietary restrictions, we’re here to serve.

Take Requests
A great catering service encourages you to think out of the box and incorporates those ideas into your event. The four-tier cake at my wedding featured yellow cake with chocolate chips and chocolate frosting. And it tasted exactly like the Dunkaroos I used to eat as a kid! Have a special request? Just let us know and we’ll make it happen.

Invite Conversation
The best part of any celebration is having all of your closest friends and family in one place. It’s a rare treat to catch up with cousins from California or aunts and uncles from Florida. While they’re all in town and at your event, you want to make sure you have plenty of time to chat with everyone. This is at the core of everything we do, and we make it a priority to create and style dishes that invite conversation.

As a fellow bride, I know how important this time is for you. If you’re looking for a caterer that will help make your dreams come true, we’re taking orders for spring and summer events.
