About

On WeddingWire since 2010

Serving New England and Beyond

Drawing inspiration from all facets of life, Capers Catering has been pushing the boundaries of culinary design and taste since 1992. Owner and Founder Emma Roberts takes pride in our fully customized, sustainably focused, farm-to-fork approach—each dish begins from scratch, with the freshest-available, locally sourced or organic ingredients. Sparked by close collaboration with you, our forward-thinking final presentation considers your favorite foods, color palette, venue, serveware, and creative direction—drawing authentic ethnic or classic dishes into the mix as you wish. The result: a visually stunning, one-of-a-kind menu of flavor fusions, impeccably served by our symbiotic team—passionate about making every detail perfect for you.

SUBLIME TASTE BEGINS WITH PREMIUM INGREDIENTS
Thanks to our carefully cultivated culinary partnerships, we always source the freshest local or organic produce, chicken, beef, pork, dairy, and beyond. Whether your custom menu calls for artisan cheeses from small family farms or wild-caught seafood direct from the boat, we procure the finest ingredients to create what you crave—and take it to the next level.

HANDCRAFTED FOOD WITH INTEGRITY
From passed hors d’oeuvres to pasta to desserts, we take pride in making virtually everything from scratch in our state-of-the-art kitchen, with utmost respect for the untold devotion, patience, and care behind each ingredient we find in our hands.

EXCELLENCE BEYOND YOUR PLATE
We love our clients. Behind the scenes, that love translates into synergy with our venue partners, event collaborators, and devoted internal team. Our secret to flawless service: we listen carefully to your tastes and what you envision, communicate clearly with all parties from moment one, treat every member of our extended team with utmost respect and integrity, and together, meticulously tend to every detail to exceed your expectations.

INSPIRED BY
Life. Art. Global excursions. Museums. Fashion week. Food trends. Pantone colors. Flavor fusions. Three-star Michelin restaurants. Street vendors. Forward-thinking gastronomic epicenters—from Paris, Tokyo, and New York to San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Miami. Wherever we traverse through life—business or pleasure—our team endlessly snaps and swaps real-life images and articles sparking inventive, exquisite food presentation and unforgettable taste.

SUSTAINABILITY
The vast majority of our food is locally and sustainably sourced. By composting all food scraps, recycling every allowable item, and converting residual cooking oils into biodiesel, more than 80% of our waste is repurposed. For events requesting disposable dinnerware, cutlery, and napkins, our top recommendation is sustainable bamboo or palm leaf. Our eco-conscious state-of-the-art kitchen and adjoining design studio feature energy-efficient LED light bulbs. We are fiercely committed to reducing our carbon footprint.

Outstanding!

Capers was simply AMAZING. The food was incredible. We had so much fun at our tasting and they really cared about making our menu customized to us. I sent in some edits afterwards and they were so accommodating. The week before our wedding my MIL all of a sudden became allergic to almost everything due to some health issues and Capers didn't miss a beat. They made sure she had plenty to eat and felt comfortable. All of our guests were raving about the food and the staff was so friendly and helpful! Even little things like passing out seltzers and beers to minimize lines at the bar. They thought of everything!

Top Notch Everything

While I sometimes roll my eyes at the term “foodie,” having incredible food and cocktails was important to us at our wedding. After deciding to forgo the formal sit down dinner we hoped to bury our guests in passed apps, small plates, and grazing boards. Capers was more than up to the task. From our tasting on site to multiple iterations and edits up until the week before, they did nothing but exceed expectations. Every member of the staff we interacted with from the chef, event coordinator (special shout out to Anneliese), bar manager and bar staff to game day servers were top shelf. Our guests still talk about the tuna tartare macrons and the mini short-rib Yorkshires with horseradish cream. The passed desserts and mini espresso martinis late night were also a hit. Our event was made exceptional by their attention to detail and flawless execution. Hats off to Capers Catering.

It was a privilege to work with Capers Catering on a wedding here at the King Hooper Mansion last fall. They are very professional and were capable of handling the special circumstances of working in an antique mansion full of stairs!They planned ahead beautifully and came prepared. They were able to trouble shoot situations before they became problems and their staff was a pleasure to partner with on making the bride and groom's special day a celebration they would never forget. The King Hooper Mansion looks forward to working with Capers on future weddings one of which is already in the works.
