Special Event Catering by Experienced Executive Chef around Orange County

I’m Tom Catrow and I am an experienced executive chef-turned-private chef who also enjoys catering special events for my clients in their homes or other venues. I trained at the Le Cordon Bleu school in Portland, Oregon, and advanced from executive sous chef in hospitality food services to executive chef and proprietor working in restaurants and running my own specialties catering business. I have since moved to the Anaheim and Orange Hills area where I have resumed work as a personal chef and in high-end catering.

  • Party catering for small parties and large, at home or in smaller event venues.
  • Healthy food catering for whatever diet you would like to accommodate.
  • Wedding catering including restrictions like a vegan wedding catering.
  • Corporate event catering such as leadership retreats or Christmas parties.
  • On-site catering at your favorite location.
  • Catering to World Influences like Mediterranean, Asian, or Italian food catering menus.

Whether you’re looking for a wedding reception caterer or for a professional, capable chef to handle house party catering, you can call (949) 469-0604 today to learn how I can help you develop your menu and simplify your upcoming event.


Why Hire a Private Event Caterer?

Whether you’re planning an event like a dinner party, special event, or wedding, engaging the best catering services near you can make the difference between enjoying a flawless get-together and enduring a stressful, difficult obligation. As a professional chef and caterer, I:
  • Meet with you for an initial consultation, discussing your event, expected attendees, and menu development. (Click here to learn more about my chef specialties.)
  • Design a personalized menu to set the tone of your event.
  • Offer grocery shopping services.
  • Cook in the comfort of your home or an equipped event venue.
  • Clean up any areas and dishes I use for cooking or food preparation. (If a small event venue is being used, we’ll need to discuss the requirements at the venue.)

Trying to handle the menu design, ingredient gathering, and food preparation on your own or with an inexperienced caterer increases the chances that you’ll spend your precious celebratory time in the kitchen instead of with your guests. By engaging me (Tom Catrow) as a full-service catering business, I can help your event proceed smoothly with exceptional food and minimal disruption. See my Personal Chef page to know more about the styles of cooking I embrace most. The combination of variety that I offer as well as my level of experience allows me to stand out among local catering companies.

If you have an upcoming special event in or around Laguna Beach, CA, and are looking for experience and finesse in private catering, please call
(949) 469-0604 to arrange an initial consultation. If you’re also interested in my other personal chef services, start with my home page. I’m looking forward to making the menu for your next event wonderfully memorable.
