Featured – Root Catered Events

I have seen Gene do it all, from the absolute conception of an event, to setting up a room, creating table-scapes and flower arrangements, and ultimately to prepping and cooking all the food by hand and serving it, too. An accomplished chef, Gene prepares and serves fresh, beautiful, mouth-watering food. He brings new concepts and ideas to an event when it seems there is nothing new left to try. It is the little but unique touches he manages to incorporate into everything, that put Root Catered Events’ signature touch on each event.

Gene has an incredible sense of fun and whimsy, yet a serious professionalism about making sure everything is perfectly executed. He is an absolute doll to work with. I am proud to recommend his services to my clients. Everything is always beautifully orchestrated, service is impeccable and the food is delicious. Gene believes in sourcing local, organic products and makes sure his food is as beautifully presented as it is fresh and flavorful. Acting as an unofficial “face of the Museum”, he has helped to make me look good over and over again.
