Northern California Boutique Catering

Sweet Basil Catering thrives on a balance of quality ingredients and exemplary customer service. Success hinges on every detail--from hand selecting ingredients to accommodating staff attitude and artistic presentation. Our team of "foodies" travels throughout northern California to cater from your private kitchen, rented venue, or remote outdoor site. From starstruck, intimate weddings in Mendocino 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! Ray's is the place for luscious Greek yogurt, 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 approach to "business as usual."  Maybe that is why they have been lovingly dubbed "the wedding food experts!" For most couples, including this one, the perfect meal is a top priority. Check out our reviews for raves from a few of our favorite newlyweds.

Intimate Gatherings

Sweet Basil's warmth and effortless professionalism, together with a variety of menus, add to the magic at your baby shower, family reunion, LGBT wedding, or retirement party. Sweep your sweetheart off her feet with a candlelit picnic. Birthday cakes and gourmet cupcakes stuffed with decadent fillings are lovingly handmade by our in-house food artist.


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!
