Bay Area Full Service Catering for Businesses, Weddings, Special Events

Let’s Plan an Event!

Handheld Catering isn’t just a clever name. It’s who we are. We believe that you should know where your food comes from. We take our job as Bay Area event catering experts very seriously. We take the time to work with local farmers to provide our clients quality, healthy food that takes the Farm-to-Fork journey.


Our events catering starts with food that is touched by the hands of farmers, checked for quality by the purveyors with their hands, and prepared by the hands of our chefs into something unforgettable for you and your guests. The thoughtful journey that the food has taken translates into fresh, delicious food that will have everyone raving.


When you’re planning your event in the San Jose, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Palo Alto or other Silicon Valley CA area, Handheld Catering knows just what to do. We pride ourselves on our mobile kitchen, which allows us to cook all of our food onsite. This means that you and your guests will eat the freshest food possible! This also means that you have greater flexibility in choosing the venue for your event.


We know that event planning can be stressful. That’s why we connect you with an all-star event coordinator that works with you from the start. Our event coordinator will be onsite at your event so you don’t have to worry about anything except enjoying the event! All the details will be in place to make your event a memorable one.


Events celebrate the milestones in life. Anniversaries, birthday parties, family reunions, and weddings—these are the moments in life that we all remember and hold dear to our hearts. At Handheld Catering, we’ll work with you to make your event one that will create fond memories for all in attendance.


We transform simple flavors into extraordinary experiences. We’ll even work with you to create a custom menu for your event. Take your event to the next level by working with our experienced staff. Start planning your exceptional event today.
