B&W Catering Company is a family-owned business, run by my wife Whitney, as front of house; and myself (Brent Battis) handling the menu, planning, and cooking. We met almost a decade ago at the Hanover Inn where our roles were similar. Fast forward and we were married and started a family with our son Oliver, who was born on July 24, 2014. Always with the hospitality business as the backdrop of our lives.
Despite the company being new, we have been fortunate to have had many opportunities to work on great events together here in the Upper Valley. We were first inspired to start our own business when the vice president of a local business inquired about our services catering their annual Christmas party. Whether we were catering a large collegiate event or an intimate private home dinner - sourcing the very best ingredients prepared in simple and delicious ways with the utmost care for the experience of our guests was the driving goal. Our family values revolve around the sharing of good times and good food and we want to provide that feeling with any event we're involved in.
Anyone in a service company knows that you're only as good as your staff. You can have the best vision, but they are the ones that execute it. Our staff are all people we've known and worked with on events for years. We count them among our closest friends and they share our love of great food and hospitality. Hardworking, long hours in close stressful conditions only make them work better. Their passion and dedication make the whole vision happen.
We hope that we can have the opportunity to serve you.

A Decision We'd Make Again and Again!
Brent and Whitney did an amazing job providing catering for our wedding. Their skill in creating a delicious custom menu of anything you could want left the guests talking about the food for weeks. I (bride) have a dairy allergy and was very concerned about finding a caterer that could accommodate me while being able to design our vision around a Lebanese/Mediterranean themed menu. The food was absolutely delicious and we were thankful to have visited Brent and Whitney's beautiful home for a tasting prior to the big day. Special shout out to the magnificent, fresh lemonades. These provided such fruity relief on a hot August day and our older guests enjoyed mixing them with various spirits. Brent, Whitney, and their wait staff were truly focused on providing the best experience possible and it was certainly noticed. The responsiveness and willingness to adjust things as we approached the wedding was sincerely appreciated. We highly recommend B+W Catering Co. for any and all events!Sent on 09/02/2019

Guests said it was the best wedding food ever!
Brent & Whitney were an absolute delight to work with. We were drawn to them because of their focus on using local, sustainable ingredients. Whitney was very easy to communicate with over e-mail and worked with us to design a menu with specific items we requested that was in our budget. We were fortunate to have a tasting with them in their home and truly enjoyed their company, as well as the delicious food. They were very well prepared and accommodating to our guests' dietary restrictions, including a couple of serious food allergies. We went with a cheese station and passed hors d'oeuvres for our cocktail hour - knowing that the bride & groom are often busy during cocktail hour, they put together a plate of all of the appetizers especially for us, which was a very kind touch. We had a family style dinner, which was absolutely delicious and our guests loved - several of them came up to tell me how much they loved the food, with quite a few saying it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. The servers were diligent about checking in on the tables, and offered to refill platters so all of the guests at the table would be able to try the different entrees and sides. At the end of the night, Brent and Whitney had the leftovers packed up for us - a small touch that was so appreciated and fed us throughout the week! I'd highly recommend B&W Catering.Sent on 08/18/2019

Several weeks out and our guests are STILL raving about the food that Brett & Whitney prepared for our wedding. Brett and Whitney are absolutely incredible; a delight to work with, and a blast to brainstorm and craft a menu with. We didn’t make things easy for them, and had asked that we craft a cocktail hour menu that pulled from both my Eastern European and my wife’s Brazilian backgrounds, and then we asked that we create a dinner menu pulling from middle eastern cuisine (our favorite!) Not only were they completely unphased by our requests, but they were so excited to play around with the ingredients, ultimately putting the most delicious spins on some classic dishes (well, classic to us, that is). We were thrilled by how encouraging they were of us trying to do something a bit different. I vividly remember being at a loss for words during our initial tasting because the food was so delicious, far exceeding our expectations. The catering crew they brought along with them on wedding day was an absolute blast as well—everyone was super energetic, thoughtful, fun-spirited, and showed a true dedication for making our day feel special. After all was said and done, we had to duke it out between our bridal parties to divvy up leftovers, because everyone wanted some. We would recommend B&W catering ten times over, without any reservation (and if you end up with left overs, send them our way, because we can’t get enough of their delicious farm-to-table cooking).Sent on 07/02/2019
B&W Catering is definitely one of our favorite caterers! Their food is creative and delicious and their team is wonderful to work with. We have been and will continue to recommend them to all of our couples! Cannot wait to work with Brent and Whitney again!
