assafrass Catering offers services for many types of events, from intimate dinner parties to large scale weddings. We have catered board meetings and retreats, cocktail parties, weddings and fund raisers, and are available for private chef services as well. Under the business links you will find information for other local businesses that will help you with rental equipment, flowers, photography, music, local farmers' markets, outdoor adventures and more.

Please visit the menu and gallery pages for examples of some of the hors d'oeuvres and menus we have prepared in the past. Your choices are not limited to what you see here. We are inspired by seasonality, local ingredients, the unique nature of each event and the preferences of each individual client.

Our preference in creating a menu for your event is to choose food that is seasonal and sustainable, that supports the local economy and highlights the flavors that you love. When creating Sassafrass Catering, our inspiration was to bring the amazing bounty of local and organic food--flowers and herbs, artisanal cheeses and breads, fruits, vegetables, poultry, meat and fish--that Maine has to offer to our clients in delicious and creative new ways. You may immediately associate a Maine event with lobster for dinner and blueberry pie for dessert, but truly, there is an abundance of culinary delights that our waters and land have to offer. It is a pleasure to be able to tell our customers exactly where their dinner has come from. Or better yet, plan your event as a farm dinner and eat on the very land from which your ingredients came.

We would love to talk with you to create a seasonal menu that will highlight what our local farmers and fishermen have to offer. My staff and I are available to cook and serve for you in your home or wherever your event may be. Prices for catered meals vary depending on the number of people and the type of menu created.
