With years of experience teaching cooking classes to thousands of adults and kids as well as catering throughout Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, and Pinellas County, we offer catering as one of our most popular services.

From economical “Cook and Drop” to full-service catering, we can meet or exceed your desires for delicious food and professional service for groups from 20 to 300 guests. Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, and Heavy Appetizers – we do it all.

Chefs and Owners John and Debbie have a combined 50 years of culinary experience. Of particular note, Chef John was the resident chef on the locally produced, nationally syndicated “Daytime Show” for 14 years.

Catering services begin with the Menu, Level of Service required as well as the all-important date, time and location of the event. We NEVER overbook, instead, we seek to over-service our customers. Our partners supply linens, tables, chairs, tents, China, glasses, cups, cutlery, and alcoholic beverages – we supply what we do best; bartenders, servers, kitchen staff, and GREAT FOOD.
