Past Corporate Events

The philosophy of highly personalized service at Major the Gourmet is reflected in our belief that a menu should be individually designed for each event. We do not send our clients a standardized list of menu items or prices. Major the Gourmet caters to corporate events, conventions, weddings, receptions, theme and/or private parties of any size, for any occasion.
