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 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!

    Stop reading and BOOK ANTONIO!

    If I personally knew anyone getting married soon I would be telling them they need to reach out to Antonio Ayesteran Custom Catering. Antonio and his team are seriously incredible! I feel like it says something that in all of the chaos of our wedding, I noticed how friendly and attentive each and every member of his team was. And the food is delicious! After we had our tasting ~a year before the wedding, every so often it would come up in conversation that we couldn't wait to eat his food again. The night of our wedding, the food was just as good as it was at our tasting, which I can't help but find impressive with a buffet setup! We got plenty of comments about how great everything was as we made the rounds to visit our guests' tables, which for me was the perfect final sign we had made an excellent choice. Seriously, you will not regret it - Reach out and see if he's available!

    Holy mackerel, Antonio’s food was delicious! It was better and fresher than food you could get in a great restaurant, but it wasn’t even cooked at our venue, since the kitchen was too small! His staff was also so kind and attentive! When my wife and I were off taking a quick break away after the ceremony, during cocktail hour, they brought us drinks and appetizers! It was such a nice touch. I can barely say enough good things about Antonio and his staff and his food. We would not hesitate to hire him again for a function that needed catering or to recommend him to our friends or family. Antonio, we learned at our tasting, used to win awards for his cooking and work in fast-paced, high-end restaurants in the bay area, but he wanted to be a more active dad so he just does catering and sets his own schedule now. He and his company is a true gem for Nevada County!

    We have been working with Antonio for many years and it's always a pleasure. He and his staff are completely professional and we always hear raves about his food and food presentation. We love finding out that Antonio is the caterer at weddings we perform at because we know we'll be eating well that day!
