2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

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.

    What A Hit!

    Superb and inventive food, carefully prepared and beautifully presented. The staff members of Capers—from our event coordinator Kristen to executive chef Kevin to each one of the servers—was professional, friendly, and committed to the overall success of the wedding. Capers graciously accommodated kosher, vegan, and other special requests without hesitation, and everything was delectable.
    My favorite part? Servers carried trays onto the packed dance floor to offer everyone bite-sized desserts, including homemade Hanukkah doughnuts filled with strawberry jam. What a hit!
    I can't recommend Capers Catering enough. Next time I'm hosting a wedding or similar event, I'll go straight to them.

    Amazing, amazing, amazing!

    We can't say enough good things about Capers! We changed our minds a few times with regards to the menu and number of guests and Capers was extremely understanding and flexible!

    The food was fantastic! We did a 4 course meal and every course was beautifully presented and very tasty. We had multiple guests tell us it was the best wedding food they've ever had! Our favorite part - the espresso martinis Capers served alongside the cake!

    We had a backyard wedding on the Cape, which requires renting tables, chairs, plates, utensils, generators, tents, etc.. Capers handled all of this for us! Thanks to Capers, we were never stressed. Backyard weddings are a lot of work and Capers made it so easy!

    Thank you Capers for helping us throw the wedding of our dreams! :)

    Amazing Fall Wedding in New England

    Our wedding was delayed by 1 year due to COVID and Capers was never let us down. They allowed the change and then were on top of everything when October 16th, 2021 arrived. The food was amazing, we wanted a taste of New England and Autumn, especially for out of town guests. Everything was perfect: baskets of clams with bellies and fries, clam chowder, lobster rolls, squash, skewers and late night sliders. All was perfect and the staff amazing. Working with the team on preparations was easy too, so many ideas of tables, linens, serving dishes and they were perfect.

King Hooper Mansion King Hooper Mansion Mansion Weddings

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.
