From a casual Spring cocktail party to elaborate Fall receptions, private chef work and corporate events, Portsmouth Catering Company can tailor fit your needs into amazing menus and impecable service.
We do not provide pre-fabricated menus! We feel that each and every event is unique and demand their own specific attention. Likes, dislikes, allergies, theme of the party, and time of year for local growers all play a part in designing your menu.
We enjoy outside the box traditional slow foods, comfort food with a twist!
After we chat and you receive your menu and once you feel we are the right crew for you, a small deposit locks your date in. We will also aide you in the amounts of alcohol to purchase, rental needs and any questions you have to make your planning easier.
Chef Michael Prete
Michael has been in the industry for over 25 years. He offers slightly outside the box approachable comfort foods. Growing up in an Italian family in suburban New Jersey with both parents that cooked, he grew his love for food from an early age. Since then, with no formal schooling, he started off as a dish washer, then graduated to prep, to line and through the ranks with roles as Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director. He has a background in luxury Inn's, Private Country Clubs and private chef work, catering and restaurant consulting. He opened up the famed 'The Kitchen' in the seacoast of New Hampshire to mimic delis from the tri-state area where they grew up. Since then and three restaurants later, he settled with his wife and three boys on a farm in Salisbury, NH. His passion for food, and amazing long-time dedicated staff and steering away from the "average food" when it comes to catering has made Portsmouth Catering the success it is today.
