Custom Gourmet Catering Menus for Work and Home
We started our company with a mission in mind: To spread the joy of good food. While many things have changed about us over the years, that commitment to quality cuisine remains the same.
We provide personalized menus based on a range of custom, handpicked food options. We want everyone to find food they’ll love. That’s why we work closely with each of our clients, tailoring our offerings based on their precise specifications. We want our food to have a special place in your memory—and we’ll do everything we can to guarantee it. Meeting needs, exceeding expectations: All in a day’s work for Platters Catering & Events.
Our Consultative Process
We utilize an in-depth one-on-one consultation process. The purpose is simple––to fulfill the client’s expectations. Our consultations help us develop tailor-made menus, improve the quality of our service, and provide better food options.
The focus is always on the client. Based on your preferences, your consultation can consist of just a few questions or a prolonged taste sampling session. The choice is yours. We’ll lay your options out on the table, discuss the full details of your event, and plan our services accordingly. We’ll make sure you feel confident in your choice to go with us.
Sumptuous Catering Spreads
A Host of Platter Options

- Displays and Sharing
- Sweets and Treats
- Healthy Treats
Each menu comes with a variety of options and plenty of potential for personalization. They’re like a smorgasbord: Pick and choose what you want, ignore what you don’t, and we’ll take care of the rest. Ultimately, when you choose us, you have the final say on what is (and isn’t) served at your event. We make sure of that.
Whatever you choose, we always put an accent on presentation as we believe food should always look as good as it tastes. This will add a professional and artful flare to your event that people will talk about time and time again.

Three Benefits of Going Pro
Whether you are the project manager looking to impress new corporate clients or a parent looking to throw a memorable surprise birthday party for your loved one, Platters Catering & Events should be the first number you call. Our commitment to excellence is second to none and we will stop at nothing in the pursuit of dining excellence for your party, no matter how large the group may be. For us, it doesn’t matter whether you are planning a meeting or corporate event or a charity dance, we can cater to your needs expertly while also creating an enjoyable night. Hiring a professional team of caterers not only looks impressive, it will also mean that your event—whatever it’s size—will be memorable for all the right reasons. With that in mind, here are three key benefits of going pro with your catering needs:
- Quality not Quantity: At Platters Catering & Events, we are firm believers in the mantra that it is quality not quantity that counts. When you hire us for your catering needs, you will see this mantra in operation. To put it simply, the quality of the catering you supply can make all the difference to the success of your event. The better the quality of food you offer your guests, the more impressed they will be. When all is said and done, one area you simply cannot afford to take shortcuts with is the food and service because if the food is not of a high quality then your guests simply will not enjoy themselves.
- Time-Saving: Whether a wedding or a sweet 16, you will already have the stress of planning your event, sending invitations and finding the perfect venue. With all that on board, you need to ask yourself if you also need the added stress of arranging and preparing the catering yourself. By hiring a professional catering company like ours, we can save you the time and stress of worrying about the food and service. In reality all you will have to do is agree on a menu and the type of food you want, and the rest will take care of itself.
- Professional Services: On top of providing a high-quality food service, we also assist with the provision of a professional waiting service. After all, what better way to impress your guests than with a superior waiting service who are here to cater to their every need. The simple fact of the matter is that there is very little that says professional than an experienced and knowledgeable waiting staff. Making sure that all your guests are looked after should be the primary concern of any host and with us in charge, you can rest assured that everything will be taken care of seamlessly. So, why settle for less when the number one team in Cambridge are here for you to use?
