ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!! Chef Leon Brunson catered our Christmas dinner at Big Fish Real Estate.

I wish I could give this review more than five stars. Leon is dedicated, passionate, and incredibly talented. Leon is a rockstar!

I got married last year, and Leon catered for the wedding. I wish I could give this review more than five stars. Leon is dedicated, passionate, and incredibly talented. He was a joy to work with. The man who is my husband now spent the better part of one and a half decades working in the hospitality industry as a chef. Given his background, he can sometimes have seemingly impossible standards for certain aspects of food service. I requested stuffed shells with red sauce as one of the dishes because it is a Jersey Italian classic which my family, who was traveling from up north, would appreciate. My husband wanted his recipe for tomato sauce to be featured in the dish. After several phone calls with caterers telling him no, we asked Leon. He exceeded expectations and went above and beyond. The tomato sauce was perfect, and everything else he had creative freedom for was better than what we could’ve imagined. Leon is a rockstar.

Chef Leon is amazing! He taught a phenomenal cooking class for the Jack and Jill, Inc. Fathers group. It was by far the best meal my husband has made and the Zoom live instructions were excellent! We can't wait to go to the restaurant!

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of food can you provide?

Right arrow

We. Can. Cook. Anything. We want to offer the guests an opportunity to let us know what they would like to enjoy at their wedding, and we want to work to accommodate that. We can provide a plated service, buffet style, or heavy appetizers depending on the venue. The fun in these events is working with the couple to create the menu of their dreams for a special occasion.

Do you cater out-of-town events?

Right arrow

We have a vast area that we cater to. We can travel as far west as Texas, south as Miami, and north as North Carolina. Due to logistics, we charge for transportation, which could limit what is provided depending on the venue’s kitchen.

How does this work? Do you just...come over and cook?

Right arrow

Exactly that! I arrive to your house 60-90 minutes prior to the agreed upon start time, I'll bring a staff member with me, and you sit back and enjoy the show! We take care of all dishes, cleaning the kitchen, packing leftovers, and everyone is welcome into the kitchen to ask questions at any time!

How do you schedule a private dinner?

Right arrow

Schedule a call with me to confirm the dinner date and what kind of food you’d like. Then, based on our conversation, I can determine a price point.

Can you provide a private dinner for two?

Right arrow

Unfortunately, we rarely service private dinners for two. I encourage couples to sign up for one of our cooking classes as a great alternative.

What do you specialize in?

Right arrow

Southern Food. Japanese, Moroccan, & Indian flavors and influences.

Pricing? How much can we expect to spend?

Right arrow

We ask planners and guests to budget a minimum of $85 per person.

Can you take care of various allergy/dietary requests?

Right arrow

Yes. We take allergy and dietary restrictions very seriously. If there is a food allergy, we will happily accommodate the guests. We will need proper notice beforehand! They must be distinguished to us on the day of the event!

When will you need a final headcount?

Right arrow

The headcount two weeks prior to the event will be the one that is accounted for. Any changes that subtract from the headcount are not refundable.

Do we need to bring our own wine?

Right arrow

We will provide you with a beer and wine list and recommendations for pairings on the menu. We are happy to include a beer and wine package if you feel your guests will take advantage; otherwise, we offer beer and wine to be purchased on-site separately.
