About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Based in Chicago, Illinois, Cocina Fusion offers catering services to clients planning weddings and special events. This catering company has worked with high-end venues and exclusive kitchens throughout its tenure. Cocina Fusion's chefs specialize in Latin fusion and traditional Mexican cuisine, however, they also offer a selection of Italian dishes.

Experience

For over 20 years, the team at Cocina Fusion has been tasked with delivering delicious, mouth-watering recipes. Answering this call, Chef Anaxi Ayala has drawn inspiration from his Latino heritage to craft scrumptious meals. Combining this base with various American styles, Cocina Fusion presents new and innovative flavors.

Cuisine

Couples can choose from three styles of menus, including Latin & American fusion, traditional Mexican, or Italian. Latin & American fusion provides vegetarian options in addition to reinvented classics, like a vegetable tostada, pasilla steak, and chimichurri chicken. The traditional Mexican menu offers classic favorites as well as a customizable taco bar. Finally, the Italian menu provides a variety of pasta-based dishes, like lasagna and shrimp scampi. Couples can complete their meal offerings by adding on sweets, such as a satisfying crepe or charming churro bar.

    Great choice

    Cocina Fusion was a great caterer! We worked with Marcela, who was easy to get along with and really helped us keep to our budget. Food was delicious!

Cocina Fusion is so amazing to work with! They have everything you want in a caterer in Chicago - amazing food, and even better service. I love that the owners are the ones who actually create your menu AND cook your food. It really gives them something special compared to everyone else. They have a fun flair and unique menu items but they will also CUSTOMIZE a menu to anything you want. I have seen them make blackened catfish and a biscuit bar (which was totally off menu for them!) for one of my clients and it was still incredible. I highly recommend them!
