Bay Area Catering Company

About Our Full Service Bay Area Catering Company

Event Catering

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, party catering, 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!
