As You Like It Catering offers chef-crafted menus for every kind of special occasion, for both large and small groups. Weddings are one of our specialties, and we like to get to know our brides so that we can help create a memorable culinary experience that reflects the personality, style and taste of the happy couple. We are very happy to customize our menu offerings and services for weddings, and feel that a well-crafted menu and exceptional service are perhaps the best way to ensure that your guests are happy, comfortable, and enjoy the entire evening.
We offer a variety of serving styles, including action Chef stations, tray-passed hors d'oeuvres, appetizer displays, attended buffets, and plated dinner service. Our style is definitely inspired by the travels and experiences of our chefs, with offerings ranging from sophisticated comfort food to eclectic California style creations. Classic and traditional world cuisines are part of the mix as well, and offer continual inspiration to our culinary team.
For every event, service starts with understanding our client's needs, and sitting together to come up with creative ways to fulfill those goals. We love to assist with many types of social and corporate functions, including weddings, anniversary parties, holiday events, school events, gala fundraisers, cocktail parties, rehearsal dinners, showers, memorials, family events and more.
