We Believe In…

You:  Our clients and guests are the reason we are in business.  We are here solely to help you to entertain with grace and comfort. We want to help you to create something not soon forgotten, to take you and your guests away somewhere special, if only for a few hours.

Teamwork: Brendan, Ben,  and the entire team of consummate professionals create not only award winning cuisine but also truly spectacular events. We succeed by working together. We value everyone in our firm as well as our suppliers, and take great pride in what we do for you.

Excellence: In everything we do, we strive for excellence. We strive to be better, to exceed expectations, to evolve our industry.

Craftsmanship: We believe in handcrafted food, from our stocks to our pastries. We support farmers, cheese makers, and other professionals who feel the same. Entertaining is a craft.

Simplicity: We believe in allowing beautiful ingredients to speak for themselves. Less is more. The same is true with design.

Passion: We do this because we love it, and we strive to hire those with the same outlook.  We’re here for one reason: we want to help you create something truly special.

Experience: In business for over 30 years, we are grateful to have retained key staff, many with 10+ years of tenure at La Cuisine, and more than 20 years of industry experience before joining us.

Great Service: It is what puts you at ease, and allows you to spoil yourself. Each and every person on our staff have the same mission: to serve you.

Coordination: An event should be complete, harmonious, and appropriate. All the components (cuisine, service production, décor and entertainment) should work seamlessly together and exist for a reason.

Regional and Seasonal Ingredients:. Letting the season dictate the menu by using the rich bounty that avails itself to us locally just seems right.  When seasonal limitations become too severe, we work to reduce the amount of travel time from farm to table.

Culinary Responsibility: Sustainability, sound animal husbandry, no antibiotics or growth hormones, handcrafted, organic, artisan and farmstead are La Cuisine’s watchwords. We buy from and support people of like mind.

Supporting Local Causes: Giving back to the community os an integral part of our company.   We support:
