About Birchtree Catering

Birchtree Catering focuses on local, seasonal ingredients and custom menus cooked fresh for weddings and events. We source from farms and markets that provide the best ingredients in our region, giving us the creative freedom to work with what’s seasonally available, and absolutely delicious.

Our team was honored to win 2015’s “Best of Philly” for Party Food and reach the number 2 spot on Yelp’s Best of Philadelphia in the same week!

Birchtree began slowly in 2008, as owners Rasa Stirbys Benefico and Allegra Derengowski built their brand by using rentals kitchens, hosting tastings in their homes, and growing relationships with vendors and farmers.

Today, Birchtree has a beautiful commercial kitchen located inside Globe Dye Works, an old dye factory in Frankford, Philadelphia that now houses small businesses and artist spaces. We remain a small business with a dedicated staff, limited events per weekend, and a strong commitment to every client.

Birchtree caters weddings, social events, meetings, small parties, and drop-off meals. We customize each menu and quote, so contact us today for your consultation!

    Need a caterer? Done.

    Please don't waste time looking at other caterers, Birchtree Catering and their highly talented and professional team will deliver all your wedding needs. The people were AMAZING and the food was equally AMAZING. Did I mention they also have a wedding coordinator who is so detailed and attentive, there is little worry than your day won't go perfect. Because it will. I keep telling people that in the future I will just make up events just to have them cater.

    Birchtree was the backbone of our wedding and we really could not be more thankful for their expertise, their helpfulness, or their incredible food. It was far more than just a food vendor: Nicole, our coordinator, was so incredibly helpful, a total boss, super responsive, and though of everything that this very overwhelmed bride managed to let slip by. Her advice and recommendations were invaluable to us and we just adore her—she is the perfect person for this job.
    As far as the food: my husband and I are self proclaimed foodies, whose shared passion and hobby is, literally, cooking and eating and talking about food. Birchtree's chefs are outstanding, the food was spectacular, and I've lost count of how many people told us how delicious it was during and after the wedding. THAT is the sort of food you want at a big day, and that is exactly the sort of food they deliver.
    We're so thankful to Birchtree for everything and cannot thank them enough.

    I wanted to bring Allegra and Rasa home with me! I truly can't recommend Birchtree Catering enough after an outstanding and delicious rehearsal dinner last weekend. We selected them from out of town based on past reviews and awards; also loved the fact that they are woman-owned as well as their commitment to sustainability. After a year of planning and tweaking, our dinner was spot on. It was arranged beautifully, was plentiful and absolutely delicious. The format, set in a two-story venue, included cocktails and appetizer board on the main floor prior to dinner, then dinner buffet upstairs with bridal party and family, then dessert buffet back in original main floor space with all the additional out of town guests joining the fun after the dinner hour. It flowed perfectly and desserts were just as delicious as the rest. All rave reviews from our guests. Allegra and Rasa provided supportive and creative planning, integrated all of our ideas (which was not easy with multiple visions and dietary needs), and created a unique and amazing event for us. They were communicative and responsive from the beginning of our planning to the very end of our event. Hated for it to end. And I would (almost) love to plan another Philly wedding or other event JUST to be able to use them. Love, love, love this business!Read Less
