Introduction: Chef Derek Culinary Group operates on 3 principles, Great Food, Professionalism and Gracious Service. With over 22 years in the food service industry I know what a client expects when hiring a cater. From the smallest of events to the largest each client deserves the same attention to detail whether there paying $500 or $5000. We specialize in home parties such as house warmings etc. I love how good food brings people together. I love the way food brings family and friends together. I also enjoy the creativity that comes with the job. I am always a student of the industry by studying new recipes and learning new techniques all the time.

I’ve been a customer/consumer of Derek’s culinary delicacies for a few years and very satisfied with everything! His response time, communication, punctuality, and deliciousness of the dishes are unparalleled. In recent months I have ordered a smoked turkey and a brisket and with each my whole family was in awe! Can’t wait for the next family event just so I can put an order in for some good food. I definitely recommend the service. You will be the highlight of any function when you step in with a dish(es) Derek prepares!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All prices are all inclusive, meaning everything will be included in the quoted price including taxes. There is a 50% deposit required on all contracts with final payment due 2 days before the event. Balances can be paid off at anytime. Cash, debit and credit accepted

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Because every client is different I choose not to have set menus with pricing. All menus are custom for each event. Usually I start with the clients budget and start building there custom menus from there. Then I ask the location and if the event has a theme.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    10 years US Navy Culinary Specialist 6 Years Lead Cook/ Food Service Supervisor Hospital 3 yrs Executive Chef Compass Group 1.5 yrs sous chef Brookdale Senior Living Formally trained at the Art Institute Of Dalllas
