About Chefs Catering
Chefs Catering was founded in late 2011 by Chef Michael Zazzaro. He is an executive chef who has been working in the foodservice industry for over 10 years. Within these 10 years, Mike has accomplished what many haven’t throughout a life-long career in the food industry.
To help jumpstart his career and to make sure he was fully aware of industry standards and what it would take to be the best out there, Mike started his career by earning a management degree in the culinary arts field from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he spent over 4 years focusing on the art of Culinary.
After spending years working for top restaurants and venues in the Rochester, NY area, today Mike is extremely focused on Chefs Catering, a custom catering company, where he can strive to meet the needs and wants of both party hosts and guests at an array of special events.
Mike now leads a Culinary Team with over 37 years of experience. His professionalism shows through as he creates the perfect atmosphere for your event. It doesn’t take much more explaining for you to probably catch on to the fact that Mike’s on-site catering will provide you with exceptional service, that gives you a complete peace of mind.
Inspired by his family’s traditions to carry out his dreams in the culinary field, Mike has always looked up to those around him. Growing up, Mike’s Nana was very special and influential, not only in the sense of providing nurturing love one gets from grandparents growing up, but also taught him a tremendous amount of skill in the home kitchen that he has transformed professionally towards his peers.
Chefs Catering is very thankful to those that have given him the experience and knowledge that have contributed to his success at a professional level. It’s his love for food and cooking food that will allow Mike to constantly exceed expectations. To see more, please click here.
Chefs catering was fantastic. They helped build me a wonderful menu of items that everyone at my reception raved about. The food was the most delicious food I have ever had any wedding so Im really happy that everything turned out perfect at mine.
Food was awesome! Great tasting and they decorated the foods very nicely. Prices are very reasonable.
My husband and I used Chef’s Catering for our wedding in October of 2015. Back when we were planning our wedding, we decided it was important to us to have food at our wedding that we could eat as we follow a Paleo diet. Mike worked with me to develop a delicious meal and invited us to his kitchen in Rochester to sample some of the items. It was wonderful to meet with a chef who understood our diet and came up with some creative dishes to surpass our expectations.
A month before the wedding the event coordinator, Nik, began emailing us daily with very specific questions and follow-up. From the menu right down to salt and pepper shakers, Nik’s communication with us was OUTSTANDING, courteous, and no doubt put any of my bride fears aside. It was such a relief to find that it was a week before the wedding and we had covered all our bases with the caterers and they showed up at the right place and on time.
The food that Mike and his crew prepared was beyond our expectations and something that everyone raved to us about even weeks after our wedding. The pulled pork, chicken breasts, and wild caught salmon were so perfect on their own but Mike took it one step further by preparing accompaniments that brought out their flavors even more. I noticed that they had been thoughtful enough to provide non-paleo items such as croutons and a cheese blend for our guests who wanted to eat a little more traditionally. That was something that was never discussed and something I had not even thought of but it just showed how much Chef’s pulled through to cover every detail about our special day.
Chef’s Catering has catered multiple parties for my family, including birthday parties, holiday parties and a bridal shower. The food is by far, the best, absolutely phenomenal. My family will continue to use Chef’s Catering for future events, and recommend them to anyone in need of catering services!
Mike was an amazing caterer. He helped customize a menu to fit my wedding plans. He is probably the nicest guy you will ever meet! My wedding planner Tia was exceptional and really created my vision. I will recommend to everyone!!!
