The name Handheld Catering embodies our philosophy on food. We believe the food we eat should be plucked from the earth by the hands of farmers, hand-checked for quality by purveyors, and lovingly prepared into something unforgettable by the hands of the chef. That’s why at Handheld Catering we follow the Farm-to-Fork approach.
Whether you need catering for something casual or formal, we do it all! Events include but are not limited to corporate catering, festival food vending, weddings, wedding rehearsals, family functions, and catering for large group events of up to 1,000 people. For formal event catering, we offer an extravagant plated service with high-end ingredients.
If you’re worried about planning an event, don’t be! Our event coordinator will be there to take all the stress out of your event and handle the details that will make your event memorable. As experienced caterers, we know that food is just one part of the equation – the details are what make your event special!
Handheld Catering sets the green standard for catering and event planning in the Bay Area. We embrace our environmental responsibility and commitment to our local community, as well as that of the planet we all share. In addition to offering seasonal, sustainably farmed cuisine sourced primarily from the San Francisco Bay Area, we are committed to environmentally friendly practices in our event production as well as in our daily operations.
As a Bay Area native, Chef and owner Dan Figone focuses on flavors that reflect California’s seasons. He is a graduate of the Culinary Arts program at Le Cordon Bleu, San Francisco and has worked in several high-end restaurants. His broad culinary training paired with his experiences travelling the world have contributed to his mastery of different cuisines. He’ll gladly work with you to create the perfect menu for your event.
