We have been catering for three decades and each event brings more knowledge & experience. We prepare for each event as if it were ours personally. We take the same amount of care in making the side dishes as we do the entrées. The hors d’oeuvres will be housemade not pre-purchased and reheated. The vegetables will be fresh, not canned, the salad will be made with leaf or Romaine lettuce. The desserts will be made with the finest ingredients - real butter, heavy cream, imported chocolate, etc. The meats will be handpicked, marinated in our housemade marinades, grilled, roasted, or baked, and served with amazing sauces freshly prepared with demi-glace, no pre-packaged gravies. We truly care about the taste and presentation of the foods we serve and often when we cater an event the guests come to us to thank us for the amazing food!

The Art of Hosting

We are a mom-and-pop business. We prepare and deliver all the food. Being a small business affords us the luxury of flexibility. We can design a menu to suit your needs. If you don't see something here that you would like, please don't hesitate to ask.

Being small also affords us great quality control. We can only handle the preparation of so much food at one time, so we have to limit the number of orders we take. This means we can devote our attention to making your event extraordinary.

A word about tastings

Because we are a catering kitchen and not a restaurant, we do not offer tastings. Our food is prepared to order,  it is costly and time-consuming to try and prepare a variety of foods for tastings which usually need to be scheduled on weekends when we are the busiest. In addition to the cost and time needed to prepare tastings, they rarely provide a true representation as it is easier to prepare a small taste than a complete meal for say 100+ guests.  Our consultations are to find out your ideas and visions and make them come to life. Weddings are a crazy time in the couple’s life and we try to help remove the stress. If you don’t know what you want, we are happy to help make suggestions for menus. You can come to us with a book full of ideas or a blank slate and we will create a menu to suit your needs.

Customer Reviews

Baxter's Gourmet catered our wedding at Rocky Gap State Park, and we couldn't be happier! Susan was always responsive when we had questions, she worked with us to figure out a menu that would fit in our budget and fill all our guests, and it did that, and it was delicious besides. Simply fantastic food. If you are looking for a caterer who will go the extra mile to make your event a success, you just found them.
