Food Philosophy

Great food comes from great ingredients.

I care about food- where it’s from, how it’s prepared, how it tastes and how it makes you feel.
I use local, seasonal, and organic produce whenever possible.

My meats, poultry and fish are sourced locally and raised humanely without the use of hormones and antibiotics.
I avoid processed ingredients like msg,  high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, artificial flavors and artificial colors.
Delicious, real food, made from scratch and always beautifully presented.

What a wonderful day, to celebrate my 25th and my In-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary together. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Meiganne Serrano Catering, who helped make sure every detail from the food to the set up to be perfect. Meiganne from the start, was accommodating, prompt and beyond helpful. She made me feel at ease. Meiganne not only made sure my food was perfect but the service was fabulous. Meiganne took her time to plan every detail, from the best position of the tent to the position of the tables for the best flow of the guests. Tasting some of the hors d'oeuvres and the wine prior to the event was a great detail from her, that meant a lot to me, “ She cares.” The food was delicious, colorful and fresh, amazing desserts and the cake was great.Working with her, you will not have to worry, your event will be wonderful and every detail will be perfect. I would highly recommend her and will hire her for any future event!

Can't say enough good things about Meiganne, her staff, and food!
Meiganne was a delight to work with, so accommodating and captured our vision for our daughter's baby shower, perfectly! Her staff was professional, friendly and attentive. The "create your own Buddha bowls" for lunch, were a delicious, creative and fun choice. For dessert, the ice cream sandwiches were a winner and the "create your own fresh fruit short cakes" were the perfect summertime treat! Looking forward to our next party with Meiganne!!

I so highly recommend Meiganne Serrano Catering. After meeting Meiganne at a friend's 40th birthday party where her food was unforgettable, we immediately hired Meiganne to cater an engagement party for 50+ guests. Again, the food was perfect and Meiganne and her staff were an absolute pleasure. This weekend, Meiganne hosted a more intimate dinner party in our home for my birthday (best birthday gift EVER). She is unbelievably kind, perfectly organized (both in the planning process and the day of the event) and her food is absolutely delicious. Her staff is professional and just as kind. Meiganne took control and made herself at home in our kitchen. It made for two amazing events where we didn't feel any need to think about shopping, cooking, cleaning or a schedule of events. We just sat back and enjoyed. Thank you, Meiganne!

Meiganne is truly amazing.  I am so completely thrilled with everything she handled for my daughter's baby shower - food, beverages, table rentals, plates, glasses, etc.  The food was absolutely incredible, delicious and healthy (especially important for the pregnant guest of honor).  Her organization skills had everything perfectly timed.  Our waiter was professional and observant (glasses weren't empty for long). I never have to look elsewhere for my party planning: Meiganne is it, for whatever the occasion.

Fabulous caterer. We hired Meiganne to cater our son's bar mitzvah luncheon and we were not disappointed. Meiganne worked with us to create a menu that incorporated the usual (ie bagels, lox) but also something different (ie farro salad, trout salad). The result was fantastic. All the guests loved the food. Even the salad dressing was extra delicious. We were also very pleased that everything was organic, fresh, and locally sourced when possible. Meiganne herself was very calm, responsive, and professional - a real pleasure to work with. She handled our request for recyclable/reusable containers and bottles with aplomb. The serving staff she hired were professional and efficient. Overall a really great experience and we will definitely use her again. Highly recommend!!

If we could describe Meiganne and her team with one word it would be INCREDIBLE! When we decided to plan a wedding in four weeks there was one thing we were sure of; Meiganne should cater the event. Because we were too pressed for time, we needed someone trustworthy to take on the menu. It was an intimate summer wedding and we needed the food to reflect the ambiance. We had one request, a cool summer menu and Meiganne ran with it. We left everything up to her: food choice, serving times, seating arrangements and table set up. She did it all so efficiently and beautifully. The staff was both professional and friendly; our guests took several pictures with them in it! The menu was elegant and tasty, with all organic foods and free range meat, which was an extra treat. Our guests were delighted and remarked that it was the best wedding they had been to. For us it was our perfect day and we owe so much of that to Meiganne.
