Not so humble beginnings...
foodink landed in Los Angeles in 2001, kickstarting with a record release party for Mick Jagger in the famed El Rey theatre. Since then, foodink’s core client list has since grown to encompass an impressive “who’s who” of the corporate, fashion, celebrity & private party scenes. From grandiose events complete with dining tables adorned with $25 million of Bulgari jewels to celebrity rock weddings in the desert …from the heights of Bel Air (we can’t say who!), to Oscar Week Vanity Fair cocktail parties…. from simple but elegant private dinners, to kid’s fantasy birthdays & summer locavore barbecues… we have done it all, and to the highest level of success.
From the beginning – and well before it became fashionable –the foodink team has focused, first and foremost, on sourcing the very best ingredients, favoring organic and locally grown produce. As seasoned global travelers, the foodink creative team, with Chef Daniel Shemtob at the helm, stays cutting edge, not just with local food trends, but global ones as well.
foodink catering stands by a philosophy that each event must be unique. Whether a high-profile cocktail party for 300, a sit-down dinner party for twenty, a romantic wedding, or a star-studded industry awards night, our mission is to make our clients shine. Sourcing the freshest ingredients for our expert Chefs, pairing them with our gracious & professional staff, and working with you to create your signature event, is our passion. foodink takes pride in knowing those who hire our team enjoy the compliments & applause of their guests resulting from our delicious menus, attention to detail, flair and professionalism.
