Sweet Basil Catering

Dazzle your guests without breaking your budget!

Northern California Boutique Catering

Sweet Basil Catering thrives on a balance of personal warmth, quality recipes, and exemplary customer service. Success hinges on every detail--from the way Adrian and Yvette hand-select ingredients to their team's accommodating attitude and a love for artistic presentation. This team of "foodies" travels throughout northern California to cater from your private kitchen, rented venue, or with a fully portable propane kitchen at your favorite remote outdoor site. From starstruck, intimate weddings above the San Francisco bay to woodsy getaways in Humboldt, we've catered it all! 

Boutique caterers are intimately involved with all aspects of the occasion.  One on one contact with the owner and chef ensures clear communication, and personally shopping for each event guarantees the finest quality meal. Yvette explains: "Endive is freshest at Harvest in Fort Bragg, and Loleta Cheese Factory makes the tastiest Queso on the planet!  Local farmers like the Veggie Wagon in Shively grow the most succulent vegetables for our famous grilled vegetable platters, and we know a guy who plucks seafood straight from the Pacific for optimal freshness. The best ingredients make the best meals!"


Nothing could be more important than knowing that each detail is expertly handled on your big day, allowing you to savor every moment of this grand celebration. Sweet Basil Catering offers decades of combined wedding experience among our dedicated staff members. You will find owner/chefs Yvette and Adrian's warmth and friendliness a refreshing alternative to "business as usual."  Maybe that is why they have been lovingly dubbed "the wedding experts!" For most couples, including Yvette and Adrian, the perfect meal is a top priority. Adrian explains their philosophy to every new team member: "Our meal isn't just a catering job. This is the biggest day of a couple's life! We only get one chance to make it perfect. Think of it as if this was your wedding. How would you want the food to be?" Check out our reviews for raves from a few of our favorite newlyweds.


Outdoor Adventures

Planning a retreat, festival, cycling tour, or an outdoor wedding? Sweet Basil's completely portable team means hot coffee and Fettuccini Carbonara even without a power line in sight. Bananas Foster in the redwoods never tasted better!

Tri tip and Beef Wellington purses match well with wild caught local salmon wrapped in banana leaves and black sesame seared ahi. Tastes sublime anytime, but surrounded by towering Redwoods and crashing ocean waves, a plate of such delectables simply can't be beat!
