When the wedding reception food is as visually stunning as the wedding reception flowers and decor, well…you know you’re in the hands of an expert caterer. The Hometown Chef Catering Co. creates food that is as beautiful to look at as it is divine to devour. That’s because owner and executive chef Julio Avila is an artist by nature, and by background: He set out to earn a bachelor’s degree in painting before turning his attention to the culinary arts, graduating from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, in 1997. You can see Chef Julio’s inherent understanding of color, texture and composition in the magnificent morsels he creates, including glossy, translucent smoked salmon and cream cheese canapés, vibrant ceviche shooters, and gorgeous little quesadillas that pop with bright, fresh pico de gallo, to name just a few. To wash the delicious down, The Hometown Chef also crafts colorful, beautifully garnished custom cocktails including the spicy Cilantro Mango-Rita, the almond-infused Forget-Me-Not, and the bright and bubbly Berry Splash. And they’ll work with you to create your very own signature wedding cocktail—just ask!
This top Houston caterer is equally adept at the interactive food arts, with chef-attended stations serving up gourmet pasta, mouthwatering tacos and crisp custom panini, with creative flair.
Plus, you seriously will not meet a nicer group of people than Chef Julio, company CEO Tiffany Avila, and their team. We’ve been so fortunate to partner with these wonderful Houston catering talents over the years, and can’t wait to see what they’ll be serving up in 2017!
