About Antonio Ayestaran Custom Catering

Antonio Ayestaran has been a professional chef for over 25 years. He is an A.C.F. (American Culinary Federation) apprentice graduate, a certified Chef de Cuisine and certified Pastry Chef.

Antonio, along with 6 other chefs, represented the state of California at the largest cooking competition in the world; the Culinary Olympics in Germany, in 1996, 2000 and 2004. Antonio received Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for his efforts.

Antonio prides his business on working closely with his customers, creating custom experiences for each event. He works closely with many of the largest organizations in Nevada County cooking for fundraisers, donating meals and time, giving back to the community whenever possible.

We want our customers to have the best day that they could have ever dreamed of. In order for us to do this we only schedule one event at a time. This ensures that you have the best "on point wait staff" and that all of our products and services are available, and of course, that Antonio can be at each event. Our main focus is to create amazing food and make you feel as comfortable and special as possible.

    the very best!

    Antonio was the absolute perfect choice for our wedding reception. He knew our venue (Miners Foundry) well, so we trusted his expertise for so many aspects besides the food, and I am incredibly happy with how everything turned out. His staff was incredible, the service was noticeably superior to so many weddings we have attended, even our guests noticed and commented on it. We didn't have a day-of coordinator, but we didn't need one with his professionalism, and ability to collaborate with all our other vendors. The food was by far the best food at any wedding I have ever had, and MANY of our guests said the same thing. To have the food be that memorable at an event like ours, with 200+ people, is no easy feat, but they pulled it off with perfection. I truly hope I have occasion to experience his food again, and it was truly a highlight of our special day.

    If he's available, hire him

    Simply put, Antonio was amazing -- responsive, professional and a fantastic chef. We were out-of-towners planning our wedding in Nevada City, and he couldn't have made it more easy. Our guests raved about the food and everything went seamlessly. Thanks Antonio!

    The most frequent compliment we received

    By far the most frequent compliment we received was on our wedding food. It looked and tasted amazing, and was perfectly selected for the season. Working with Antonio was also such a pleasure! He was quick to respond to any emails, helped us place our rental orders, offered a comfortable and delicious tasting, and was a wonderful presence on the wedding day!
