“Working with Culinary Specialties has been an absolutely great experience. The quality of the product and the timely delivery helps greatly in our busy hotel. With staffing troubles everyone in the industry is experiencing it feels good to have someone like Culinary Specialties deliver items we don’t have the time or capacity to make. We can always count on these products satisfying our guests. The relationship we have with Meaghan is also a unique experience. She constantly stops by to make sure we are good, she helps with last-minute requests, and just overall has a great personality as a person.

I have had a partnership with Culinary Specialties since 2008.
I have utilized Culinary Specialties for all of my customized appetizer and specialty plated vegetarian/vegan entrée selections since that time.
Culinary and I have worked as a collaborative unit to execute my vision flawlessly and continue to work together to provide my guests with great offerings every day.
I would recommend Culinary as a specialty vendor to anyone in the industry as their quality is far above what the other appetizer companies sell and their “traditional” offerings are always of a higher caliber than other vendors.

They are an extension to my kitchen and staff, providing quality products with consistency and professionalism. As a chef, I am able to designate my flavor profiles on certain items and then let the team at Culinary Specialties provide me with the finished product. The time that I am able to save is priceless.
