    I was actually relaxed on my wedding day - thanks to Spice!

    Spice was everything I could have hoped for in a catering company! First of all, the food was incredible and my guests have not stopped raving about it. The displays they created were also gorgeous and totally photo-worthy! I worked with Ashley, who was able to make my vision a reality. She was easy to work with throughout the planning process and would always respond to my questions/emails with thoughtful and helpful answers. I did not think it would be possible for me to be a stress-free bride on my wedding day, but thanks to Ashley and the rest of the catering team I had full confidence that everything was taken care of and I could enjoy my day to the fullest.

    Missy and Spice Were Amazing!

    We are so happy that we chose Spice to cater our wedding. We worked with Missy- she was helpful, easy to get a hold of, listened to what we wanted, and she had great ideas. She really knows her stuff and was able to answer all of our questions along the way. The food for our wedding was amazing- so many of our guests came up to told us that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Good food was one of our priorities when we started the planning process and going with Spice was one of our best decisions. The staff was great- the food was served to the guests hot. During cocktail hour the servers did a good job making sure that everyone got a chance to try the delicious hors d'oeuvres and they even had a special platter put aside for myself and my husband so that we were sure to have some food after the family photos. The bartenders knew there stuff, and like the rest of the staff were friendly and professional. Everyone always says that no one remembers the food at weddings, but if you go with Spice- the food will be one of the highlights.

    Spice of Life Catering Co. provided absolutely exceptional food for our wedding. Throughout the process we worked with Jess, the executive event planner, who was professional, thoughtful, and so helpful in helping us in coming up with our menu. After tasting lots of amazing samples, we were able to select a palate that was complimentary of our own unique tastes and accommodating to our guests as well. We, as well as our friends and families, were so impressed with the high quality, delicious food that Spice of Life Catering provided for us and would recommend them to anyone without reservation.

Team

Ben Bebenroth
Ben Bebenroth
Chef. Farmer. Founder.

Trained at Johnson and Wales University, Charleston, Chef Ben Bebenroth graduated in the top ten of his class and won the school’s national Taste Down Under cooking competition in 2004. He was rewarded with a 5-week trip to Australia, where he traveled with a French Master Chef to tour the country’s best restaurants and cook for national dignitaries along the way.

In early 2006, after spending some time in Northeast Ohio’s top kitchens, Bebenroth founded Spice of Life Catering Co. (now Spice Catering Co.) with a passionate commitment to source quality, seasonal ingredients from the region’s best partners.

In 2012, as distribution systems between regional farms and restaurants became more efficient, Bebenroth opened the popular Cleveland restaurant, Spice Kitchen + Bar. In 2014, he acquired Spice Acres, a 13-acre Countryside Conservancy farm in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, to grow foods for catering clientele and restaurant guests. In 2016, he and his wife, Jackie, established a non-profit organization, Spice Field Kitchen, that offers education and outreach to students and individuals who seek to learn more about farming and cooking.

Ben has spent most of his decade-long career forging relationships with local producers in order to understand how to balance consumer demand with seasonal offerings. This knowledge, combined with his award-winning culinary talents and farming experience, make him one of the most sought-after local food authorities in Northeast Ohio.
