Because first impressions do matter, Simply Gourmet caters only the best of the best. A party, by its nature, should be pure entertainment -- a gathering of close friends and family to share unforgettable cuisine. For us, creating great food is the ultimate art. Merging remarkable flavors with an incredible presentation is just the beginning. We bake rustic breads from scratch, freshly roast the finest aged meats and forage for the best local ingredients. Everything we prepare is our original recipe, unique to your special event and authentic to the region that inspires it. The Simply Gourmet meals prepared for large parties, weddings and luncheons are just as delicious as those prepared for intimate dinner occasions. Nothing excites us more that serving stunning cuisine in sumptuous style.

Simply Gourmet creates an oasis of comfort and luxury for your guests. Our cuisine is rooted in classic French tradition and blends techniques and flavors from around the world. Chef Larry Barrett, with over 25 years of culinary experience in New York and Los Angeles, oversees all the delicacies that are prepared in the kitchen. That is the kind of attention to detail that sets us apart.

Every event is unique, that is why we listen to your needs and personalize your menu to accommodate your budget and tastes. Simply Gourmet is a full service catering company that will walk you through all your planning details, from the day of the rehearsal until the last guest leaves. We love to share our years of event planning experience. Make your day a moment to remember and be proud of. When you love what you do, it shows.
