    Amazing experience

    Where do I even start? Marcela and her team were perfect from the moment we met them at the tasting. Upon trying the empanadas, we knew we had to have Cocina Fusion at our wedding. It was the best decision we ever made. The food with absolutely delicious and the team was so wonderful to work with. It’s only been two weeks since our wedding and we have already received sooo many compliments. We wanted to do something that wasn’t boring “wedding food” but also wasn’t too out there, oh and it had to be delicious- and that was exactly what we got!

    Great Food, Great People!

    Juliana and her entire team are amazing. They deserve every single spectacular review they get. The food was incredible-- we’ve heard at least 10 different people tell is it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had, and (though we’re biased) we totally agree! Guests raved about the chicken, steak, and the mushroom risotto cakes. Aside from executing everything perfectly, Juliana is one of the warmest people we’ve met. She was so unbelievably kind and helpful throughout our process. We said many times that we were so thankful that we had the opportunity to work with her because she just exudes a calming energy in what can be a stressful event-- you just know Juliana is going to get things done!

    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!
