Getting Married? The Food is a Big Deal!
We must warn you, this post and photos will most definitely make your mouth water.
We all know how much effort, time and money goes into the wedding planning process. It can be beyond overwhelming, so let us take one thing off your plate (no pun intended) and introduce you to a very well-respected and award-winning catering company that we are sure will leave you (and your guests) impressed.
Chic Chef Catering is a full-service catering company based out of the Chicagoland Northwest Suburbs, serving Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. Chic Chef is known as one of Chicago’s top small business caterers and has worked with some of Chicago’s most talented event industry professionals. So, what makes them such a highly sought after wedding caterer?
Well, Food Is Important, BUT - Don’t Forget Service.
When it comes to your wedding day, you want to have delicious food AND incredible service. It’s one of the most important days of your life, a day you’ve been dreaming about and planning for a long time… and you don’t want just anyone bringing in the food. It’s very clear by reading the reviews of Chic Chef Catering, that they really know how to provide both delicious food and great service. When it comes to your wedding day catering, you want to go with a company that has a proven track record and we think Chic Chef Catering is a perfect example of that. In fact, they work with and have the support of many local wedding venues.
When We Say Full-Service, We Mean It!
Chic Chef Catering offers many event packages and options, plus a menu so large we aren’t sure how you will ever decide on which dish to go with. From appetizers to salads, live stations (our personal fave) to bridal brunches and desserts… just take a look at the menu to start getting ideas for your big day!
In addition to great food and great service staff, they offer bar service and even rentals (like tables, chairs and napkins!)
Chic Chef Catering Offers Many “Styles” of Catering
You may be wondering what type of catering style is perfect for your wedding. This is where you might want to look at the type of venue that is hosting your wedding. If you’re still not sure, ask Chef Ravi for his suggestion. He can help you decide what will be best for your wedding and budget.
Drop off service: They will drop the food off, you do the rest.
Passed Hors d’oeuvres: “May I offer you prosciutto on a crostini?”
Buffet: Just have guests grab a plate, and a member of their friendly team will happily serve your guests their favorites!
Family Style: No need for your guests to get up, just pass around the platters!
Live Food Stations: Step on up and let the chef’s work their magic before your eyes. (Chicken & Steak fajitas anyone? Carved Prime Rib? Yes please!)
Plated: A nice hot plate individually served directly to each of your guests.
Types of Food Catered:
When Chef Ravi first started, he specialized in Indian weddings due to his expert cultural background. He is proud to also offer delicious plates from all around the world. The most popular cuisines are Italian, Indian, Latin, Mediterranean and BBQ inspired dishes, but they are open to customizing something special just for you.
If you’re looking for vegan or gluten-free options, they offer this as well! If you have a guest that has a special dietary-restriction or allergy, be sure to let them know so they can work with you on alternatives.
From their website to their reviews, to the people and companies they’ve worked with… it’s clear how much Chic Chef Catering cares about their customers, and that’s really important. We are so proud to feature such an amazing company on our blog.
