    The best caterer in the Tampa Bay area!

    Our wedding planner recommended Chives, and said there was no point in looking elsewhere. They were so right! Our 200+ guests all raved about the food at our wedding. Ken set up little taco, skewers, paella, pasta, dessert (I highly recommend the cupcakes!!!), and beverage stations across the property, and made sure there was plenty for everyone. He even wrapped up all the leftovers and left them in the fridge for us, which the hungover wedding party much appreciated. His staff was extremely professional -- one of them even smooth-talked our way out of a noise complaint the police were responding to, without me ever knowing about it. He and his team went above and beyond. I would highly recommend Chives for any event you may be planning. Thank you Ken for helping make our wedding extra magical.

    Ken is AMAZING! I cant say enough good things about this company. We had our wedding of 150 people 3 weeks ago and people can't stop talking about how delicious the food was- both the appetizers and entrees! We did a unique take on BBQ for our wedding because we are fairly laid back people, and Ken and his team delivered above and beyond. Our guests went back for 2nds and even 3rds. We also used his team to staff our bar, and they did incredible with that. Would highly, highly recommend Chives to anyone planning an event!

    I had an opportunity to work with many talented Chefs and many of them were masters of their craft, but quite intimidating, to sat the least... Until I met Chef Ken from the Chives Innovative Catering. Not only Chef Ken can make you feel special by coming to your house to do a private tasting, but he will capture you with his great personality, endless knowledge of the gourmet food preparation and friendliness. He will make you feel special and one of the kind by creating a unique menu for your event, the menu that will be your signature and will reflect your personality and delight your guests with unexpected presentation, flavors and colors. If you want a unique, unforgettable and one of the kind dining experience for you and your guests, Chef Ken and Chives Innovative Catering should be your selection.
