    BEST Caterer in Pensacola

    I am not sure where to begin my review for Culinary Productions, the food or the service? I guess there is one common link between the two: Mike DeSorbo. I’ll start with the food. I knew we had met our caterer when we left our taste testing in Mike’s kitchen—everything he prepared was delicious. My daughter is a “foodie” and this catering decision was very important to her and her fiancé’. Mike suggested we do several food stations placed strategically at our venue and we ultimately decided on 4 delicious options. We settled on the menu 7 months before the wedding, but that didn’t stop Mike from telling us we could change it up to the wedding week. Culinary Productions did a phenomenal job on the food, I am still receiving compliments on the variety and quality of each station.
    But coming in a close second to the food quality, and I mean very close, is Mike’s customer service. He would reach out to me just to check in, remind me of decisions from our last discussion or email, and offer to help in any way he could. On the wedding day Mike was on site working with other vendors to set up the tent in case some bad weather moved in on our reception. Mike wasn’t supposed to be at the venue at 9 am, but came down at the request of our planner and they all worked together to come up with the best plan, for the worst weather forecast. Mike brought 10 staff members to help for the reception and they were like busy bees, took care of EVERYTHING. They stayed until the very end and even helped load our cars.
    For this mother of the bride, finding the right caterer was paramount. Hiring Mike @ Culinary Productions was one of the best decisions made for my daughter’s wedding. I have never hired a wedding reception caterer, but I have tasted my fair share of catered food. There is NO ONE better than Mike and his team at Culinary Productions.

    Outstanding quality

    Adriene went above and beyond with customer service. It rained the entire day of my daughter's wedding. We had planned for a more bar outside. We assumed this was just not happening. When we walked into the reception and realized that Adriene had set up the smore bar inside (she went out on her own and bought sterno cans for guests to do their marshmallows.) we were beyond thrilled. Then we tasted the food, and it was fabulous. Many of our guests were from the restaurant business and could not say enough good things about the food and service. If you are in need of catering this place is hands down the best!

    Perfection!!!

    I cannot speak highly enough of Mike, Adrainne, Omar ( for making sure the entire wedding party got the appetizers during photgraphy time) and the entire Culinary Productions staff. The menu offerings has something for everyone. Even better, if you have a favorite dish they will happily incorporate that into your menu for your special event. The meal was delicious, the staff make you feel like family and their knowledge and assistance for event planning vast. We had a budget to stick to, but liked some many of the food samples we tasted. Mike suggested we spilt the amount of each dish in two. This way we had double the food choices to offer our guests without doubling the cost. There was plenty of food for all. CP also offers many "extras" at no additional costs that other caterers charged for; such as travelling to the venue, setup, cake cutting, and making a Bride & Groom basket for later. If you are looking for a caterer to make your event speical look no further than Culinary Productions!!!!!!!!!
