When the Occasion Matters . . .
Our Culinary View
We have been perfecting the art of the culinary experience for our clients since our company’s inception in 2002, when we first began catering at “other” beautiful venues and private homes in the Monterey and Carmel area, and now we are catering solely for our own venues: The Perry House, The Barns at Cooper Molera, and the Monterey Beach Station. This transition to focusing primarily on our own venues has allowed us to further enhance our motto, “Great Food. Great Service. Every Time!”
We strongly believe the food and service are integral elements in defining the perfect event – it brings people together. To quote James Beard*, “Food is our common ground, our universal experience.” So, while there are many parts that tie an event all together, we take our motto very seriously, and it is our goal to exceed your expectations in every way.
Our menus are all designed to give you options that fit your tastes and style. Our Executive Chef, David Frappiea, is dedicated to sourcing only the most sustainable, local and seasonal choices available. Chef David has over 40 years of culinary experience and, with many years as a fine dining chef, is a strong believer in “from scratch cooking”. Even our bread is made in house! Our Culinary Team takes great pride in creating intriguing dishes that will entice the eye as well as the palate.
Our Culinary Team’s uncompromising integrity allows only the best for our guests. They have a true passion for cuisine and work with the same degree of enthusiasm for every event, from the simple charm of a casual dinner to the captivating splendor of a formal gala; your guests will be dazzled with delectable cuisine that will become the lasting memories for you and your guests.
The credits don’t end there, however. The Events by Classic Group also boasts a full complement of wait staff and catering professionals. “Excellent food should be a given,” says Debbie Young, Co-owner/Director of Hospitality. “Our job is to go above and beyond our client’s expectations. Our entire team is invested in the success of each event.”
