Seattle-Based Private Chefs for Every Occasion
We’ve earned the title of Seattle’s best private chef company through unparalleled customer service. In fact, we believe that service is just as important as the world-class flavors we provide. We collaborate with you to design the perfect menu, considering every detail, so you can enjoy the event without worrying about the cooking. The next time you require catering services for a large event, between 50-150 guests, call us to schedule a complimentary consultation.
Our catering services are available for a variety of events, including:
- Holiday Parties
- Religious Celebrations
- Family Reunions
- Bat Mitzvahs & other cultural celebrations
- Corporate & Team Building Events
- Galas & Fundraisers
- Funerals & Celebrations of Life
If your event is a smaller gathering of 8-20 guests, consider our more intimate private dinner experience.
The Process of Creating Memories
Down To Earth Cuisine is more than a step above your average catering service. We bring the private chef’s mentality to large-scale events, executing a menu of exquisite quality food, no matter the size of our audience. We also take into account the various dietary restrictions of your guests, designing dynamic menus that creatively cater to everyone’s needs. From menu design to clean-up, we’ll handle every detail so you can focus on hosting your guests.
Multi-Course Menus with Dietary Accommodations
When we sit down to plan your event, your Down To Earth chef will ask all the right questions to learn about the event, the serving schedule, and any ideas you have for the menu. We will offer several menu ideas based on the purpose of the event and popular seasonal ingredients available during that time of year. We are very accustomed to planning menus to accommodate both cultural and medical dietary restrictions, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, kosher, halal, paleo, nut-free, and more.

Local Ingredients, Local Values
In addition to being the best personal chefs in Seattle, Down to Earth Cuisine adheres to a set of deeply-held values. We do our best to contribute to the beautiful natural ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest along with the local Seattle community. When you hire our catering services, it comes with the added benefit of goodwill, knowing that a portion of your spending will serve a handful of great causes.
We Reduce Plastic Waste
Our chefs are incredibly conscious of plastic use in the food preparation industry. When shopping, we use paper or reusable bags and purchase products in glass containers whenever possible. Our entire mantra focuses on reducing plastic waste and our carbon footprint during meal preparation while adequately disposing of organic and recyclable waste.
We Protect Salmon & Wild Orcas Populations
We donate a portion of every dollar we earn to planting trees through One Tree Planted. This organization plants and grows trees in the PNW to restore critical habitats for Chinook Salmon, which helps Wild Orcas. Planting trees also helps offset the carbon footprint associated with preparing meals and traveling to and from your home.
To date, we’ve donated 2,985 trees, and your business will help us to plant more each and every month.
We Donate Meals Locally
We’ve donated hundreds of meals to frontline healthcare workers and shelters in the Seattle area and will continue to do so as long as we’re in business. We love providing our clients with delicious meals, but there’s nothing more rewarding than feeding those who work hard for our health and safety and those in need.
