About

On WeddingWire since 2009

Creative Hands Cuisine is a boutique event caterer based in Mesa, Arizona. Our mission is to take a vision created by our client and create a one of kind culinary concert containing elements of great food and service to produce a theatrical and memorable experience for our guests.

If the old adage of “you are what you eat” is true. It would be best to eat only gourmet, fresh, local and sustainable food whenever possible. Creative Hands Cuisine strives to deliver all of those elements whenever possible. Healthy food makes healthy clients!

Creative Hands Cuisine is a close knit group of people in and out of work. Our team takes tremendous pride in pleasing clients, striving to exceed what’s expected of us. Many of our team memebers have worked with us for over 10 years and continue to elevate their level of skills and performances with us. What all that means for the client is great consistency and fluidity of execution of events.

We boast about our chefs who not only are masters at culinary creations but who are also well manicured, well versed, and interact with and enjoy educating guests. Having a uniformed chef approach your table to ask how your meal was is a common occurrence rather than an isolated one with Creative Hands Cuisine.

Wait staff and Bartenders are all extensively trained for success. Guided by our operations team of experts, all service staff receive training in logistics of different styles of service from plated to stationed to buffets. Etiquette training is another key component to what makes our wait staff superior to others in addressing clients and presenting cuisine and beverages.

Not your average wedding food...

Our experience with Creative Hands Cuisine for our wedding catering was simply exceptional. From the outset, their team impressed us with their professionalism, knowledge, and warmth.

The tasting session was a highlight for us. It was not only delicious but also intimate and enjoyable. The chefs took the time to explain each dish, and their passion for their craft was evident.

On the wedding day itself, Creative Hands Cuisine truly delivered. The passed hors d'oeuvres were a hit, with standout items like the prickly pear flautas, which were not only delicious but also presented in a creative and memorable way. The tomato and langoustine ceviche received rave reviews from our guests for its refreshing flavor. The roasted hatch green chili profiteroles and cocktail franks with chipotle ketchup were equally delightful.

The chips and dip station was a crowd pleaser, with fresh homemade chips paired with flavorful salsas that added a perfect touch of spice and freshness to the evening.

Moving on to dinner, every dish was executed flawlessly. The plated southwestern salad with chipotle lime dressing was not only delicious but also beautifully colorful. The focaccia bread with Grand Marnier Compound Butter and Orange Zest was a standout, leaving a lasting impression with its incredible flavor.

The chipotle-rubbed filet mignon and pan-roasted citrus chicken breast were cooked to perfection and bursting with flavor. The presentation of both dishes from the nouveau grills added an extra element of excitement to the meal. The southwest provencal vegetables were seasoned and cooked to perfection, complementing the main courses perfectly.

And let's not forget the signature mashed potatoes, which were mentioned by all our guests for their deliciousness.

Finally, the churro station provided the perfect sweet ending to the night. The churros were cooked to perfection, with a crunchy exterior and soft interior, paired with an array of creative dipping sauces and toppings.

Overall, Creative Hands Cuisine exceeded our expectations in every way. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and, most importantly, the incredible taste of their food made our wedding day truly unforgettable. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for catering that goes above and beyond.

Incredible catering service & delicious food!

We just had our wedding on March 9th and Creative Hands Cuisine catered our special day! We had an incredible experience with Creative Hands from the very start. Sarah worked with us and provided thoughtful and exceptional service and coordination. Since our wedding, we have been reminiscing with our family and friends who gave incredible reviews and feedback on the food and drinks! Huge compliments from our large number of family and friends who have been to many weddings, noting that the food, drinks, and service at our wedding was outstanding and so delicious! We highly recommend Creative Hands Cuisine for any of your events/catering needs!

Sarah Nett
Sarah Nett
Executive Event Producer

Born and raised in the Valley of the Sun, Sarah Nett has always had a passion for life. Growing up as a competitive dancer, the drive to be the best and improve what could be perfected has always been instilled in her. Little did she know this drive would push her to eventually operate one of Phoenix’s premier catering companies by the age of 25 (10 years ago!).


Sarah earned a BA in Business from Northern Arizona University with an emphasis in hotel and restaurant management. After graduation, she went to work at a local bakery/restaurant and learned the general concept of catering. It was then that she realized that EVENTS was her passion. After some soul searching, Sarah found Creative Hands Cuisine and fell in love with the small family company that does big things in Arizona.


Sarah has been with Creative Hands Cuisine since 2011, acting as their Executive Event Producer; overseeing inside sales, menu creation, accounting, customer service, event management, and other day to day operations of the company. It has been a long journey, but there is always more to learn, especially since she has hopes to take over the business when the current owners, Chef Doug and Camille Brochu retire... maintaining the companies "Women Owned Business" title.


In her personal life, Sarah takes joy in traveling and spending quality time with friends and loved ones. She also enjoys renovating and hosting friends in her condo… a purchase many years in the making. She has 1 dog, Annie, who is the best dog ever for a young female! And did we mention her love of Harry Potter and Marvel? Want to know anything else? Just ask – Sarah is truly an open book who always has her signature pop of color on her lips!
