    Amazing & Unique Food! Dan is the BEST

    We went with Spice Catering because of Dan, we had to make massive changes to our big wedding and only had about a month to really plan everything. From the minute Dan got on the phone he was so understanding and made it clear that he wanted to help make our day special. We crafted a meal for the day that fit us perfectly! We went with an Oktoberfest theme for food so we did Pierogi's, Pretzels, Bratwurst, Chicken Schnitzel and ended with a ton of doughnuts which were such a hit. Everything was Delicious! What was even better was that staff kept checking in on me to make sure I was able to eat food. I got so many compliments on the food, but Spice Catering really deserves an award. It was so unique and perfectly executed.

    Absolutely THE best!!!

    Like so many couples our plans ended up changing because of the pandemic. We had decided to work with Dan and his team prior to Covid. We are SO grateful that we had!! Of course, menus changed, venue changed, but he was one of the constants that helped us get to the finish line. His entire team is full of nothing but professionals. They had never worked at our venue before and this did not slow them down at all! The food was amazing. That is the first thing so many of our guests keep telling us! In our tasting, my husband mentioned how he would have been happier with a bit more sauce on his beef, and wedding day there was extra!! That little detail shows just how much he and the team are dedicated to making your event incredible for you. In addition to food, they coordinated all the rentals, we needed everything! We had a beautiful, perfect wedding during a pandemic and so much of that is thanks to Dan and his team at Spice. If we ever have an event we need catering, we will go straight to Spice!

    Mother of the Bride

    What a difference having the right caterer and food can make! Dan and his team of chefs and waitstaff are very professional in every way. Our New England style clam bake menu for our daughters wedding was all prepped and cooked on site and everyone raved about the food. From Lobsters, steaks cooked to order, steamers and New England clam chowder had guests going up for second and third plates of food. Their waitstaff was outstanding and catered to our every need with a personal touch. I HIGHLY recommend Spice Catering for your next catered event!

    Great caterer for all your needs

    Dan from Spice Catering was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was extremely responsive, met with us on multiple occasions, was always available to talk through ideas or thoughts we had, was honest with his feedback, answered SO many questions, and was open to our ideas so that we could make our wedding unique and personalized. Besides providing delicious food for our cocktail hour and dinner, all rentals were managed through Spice so we didn't have to worry about those and we were able to use their bar services while providing the alcohol. The staff the day of the wedding were great - attentive, always had a smile, worked well together and always made sure we (bride/groom) were taken care of as well as the guests. The chefs know how to make delicious food with great spices/flavors in a wide variety of cuisines and the food presentation is beautiful. The next time we need to cater something, we will def. be hiring Spice again.

    Best Party Ever!!!

    We booked Spice Catering and used their venue, Sage on High in Derby, CT. The event was a party/reception to celebrate our son’s marriage, which had occurred months earlier, out of state.
    Can’t say enough about the venue itself, the outstanding food, and the non-stop service provided that day by Susan and her crew. Our guests are still raving about the chowder and the gourmet buffet. They even had a separate buffet area for the many young children in attendance....a truly nice touch which I hadn’t even asked for. Spice Catering was a dream to work with, and I would trust them with any special event, be it large or small....

    Everything we wanted and more

    From the very start of the planning process Spice was amazing to work with. Dan is extremely knowledgeable and just a genuine person. He took everything we wanted and made it fit into our venue and price range. We also hired Carisa for day of coordination, but she was involved in much more than that and always on top of everything. Everyone raved about the food and the catering staff were wonderful too! Can’t recommend enough!

    Five Stars

    Dan was incredibly responsive which helped ease my concerns as a bride with many other things to attend to. He was also incredibly helpful in handling things I would not otherwise have even thought about. It made our wedding day a much smoother event. After the wedding we received multiple compliments on the quality of the food as well.

    The Spice team really spiced up our post-wedding party. They were responsive and took personal interest in our needs. They offered flexibility regarding our menu options and a complete explanation of the services/goods promised in the contract. On the day of the party, the chef and kitchen staff were experienced and very caring. Please be confident and let Spice spice up your party, too.

    Working with Betsy was the easiest and most fun experience. She really made us feel like we had a tailored menu and worked with us to make sure the food reflected our story and our background. We had great feedback from our guests and would definitely recommend!

    Spice Catering Group Rocked Our Wedding! Exceptional Catering Experience!

    Spice Catering Group was a pleasure to work with! Dan was extremely professional but not overbearing in his communications with us. He made sure all the details were covered so we could relax on the big day. Chef Jonathon did a fantastic job preparing the meal we so carefully planned out. It was delicious and cooked perfectly! And our captain, Rosa handled the waitstaff and challenges of the evening very well and did a wonderful job with table arrangements! I highly recommend this company for any event!

    Dan and the Spice Catering crew were just wonderful to work with from start to finish. My husband and I got married on my parent's family farm... in a field... with all services (power, shelter, KITCHEN etc.) having to be brought in. Through his experience doing events like that, Dan confident knowing we could make that happen, despite us never having a 200 person party on the property like that before. Jonathan the head chef has a special love for what he does, which was so evident when we got to meet with him during our tasting. Dan was attentive and knowledgable throughout, and so creative in his ideas for meal choices and food options for cocktail hour and our wedding meal. We loved our food and are so thankful to Spice Catering for making a meal that was not just a traditional, typical, "wedding food" meal. Food was great and service was, too! Thanks, Dan!

    We are so happy that we went with Spice Catering for our October wedding! The food was delicious and the way they presented it was beautiful. Dan and his entire staff made sure we were well taken care of and happy throughout our wedding. He is a true professional and you can see how passionate he is when it comes to his business. I don't thing we could have trusted anyone else for the most important day of our lives. They set aside food for us during cocktail hour so we could have a chance to eat during our carriage ride and picture taking. It was definitely a lifesaver! The caprese pipettes were so cute and tasty that I'm still hearing about them from my family and friends. We even had our own champagne waiting for us and then later on a bottle of wine at our table. The wine was Josh wine which is my husband's name. It’s those little details that helped make our day special. Thank you Dan!

    Dan Biagioni is the only caterer that I contacted that picked up the phone to discuss the catering for our wedding. We did not have a set idea of what we wanted nor a fixed budget. He provided advice that resulted in us have a buffet with one chicken dish, one salmon dish and one vegetarian dish ("adult mac 'n' cheese"). This covered all our bases and turned out to be a delicious combination that accommodated all our guests tastes. He put on a beautiful cocktail hour and provided the alcohol. We chose to stick to wine and beer. We provided our own flatware and plates for the main meal and he provided all the glasses for the tables. The price was reasonable and his team went above and beyond for taking care of all our 150 guests. I highly recommend his catering service to anyone.

    Spice catered our summer wedding, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience. Dan was very professional and creative, and we loved the unique menu items he created for our special day. Our reception was a rustic backyard gathering, and we chose to have stations rather than passed plates; everyone raved about both the creative cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres and the delicious options for dinner. On top of the amazing food, the service was top notch. Everyone was very attentive to our guests, who were pleased and had nothing but great reviews throughout the evening! My husband and I had a personal caterer who checked in on us, making sure we had food and something to drink during the busy cocktail hour- which we were so thankful for! Spice catering is perfect for any event, big or small. They serve high quality, one of a kind dishes made personally to your liking, and the quality of service is unbeatable!

    From day one, Dan and his crew were nothing but professional and courteous. Anything I wanted he made it happen. Dan is high energy and happy to Brian storm with you to make your day uniquely yours. He was such a pleasure to work with. His staff took such great care of us on our wedding day. From making sure we ate (Someone made us plates and came to get us when it was ready) to making sure we stayed hydrated.
    Carissa the wedding Cordinator is awesome too. She helped me towards the end. She tied up all the loose ends. Set my wedding timeline and was my go to person for all my freak out moments. She also set up my tables, chairs, linnens, centerpieces and other things for the day.

    It is bittersweet that I am at the end of my journey. They have been such a integral part of my life for the last year. they truly felt like and treated us like family!

    Dan was amazingly responsive and helpful from the very beginning of the process. Even letting me know about a bridal show Spice was putting on/attending so that I could get a mini preview of his food early on. Every email & phone call I made to Dan was immediately answered, even pointing out things that I hadn't even thought of! Even though I did not get my rentals through Spice, Dan helped me along in the rentals process, pointing things out to me such as the proper length of a linen for my tables, and suggesting a non traditional buffet table set up which ended up looking amazing. Dan even invited my Mom & Grandmother to a tasting he was already hosting, prior to the wedding. Ifelt completely confident in Spice before the wedding & they did not disappoint! The food was amazing, the presentation was beautiful and Dan even made a special appearance on my big day. Guests are still raving about the food! I also worked with Carisa & Shannon for my "day of" wedding planning needs. I was hesitant in hiring a "day of" coordinator, however it is one of the best decisions I made. Shannon was there at the rehearsal the night before to go over everything for the day of; and arrived on the day of with her assistant before any of the vendors and stayed until the last vendor left. She was there the entire day to keep me informed when I had questions and was the person I could direct others to, so that I could enjoy the day. She even ran out in the middle of the reception to purchase more alcohol! I highly recommend Dan and his team at Spice for your catering, and event planning, needs.
