About Blue Heron Catering and Events
Blue Heron has been creating delicious menus since 1988. We have a great passion for authenticity in our cooking.
While the sustainable food movement has become a way of life here in the Bay Area, we have always made using our local food shed a priority in our business model. As an Oakland based company, our commitment to local and responsible food has strong roots in California that are reflected in our menus.
Blue Heron is highly sought after because we work so closely with the people who grow, raise and produce everything we use. It is not unusual to see a chef, event manager, or owner out on the farm or at the market stall.
We believe in great service and build our team around this premise. When we cater your event, who is there is as important as what we serve. Many of our staff members come from some of the finest restaurants and share our commitment to making every event one to be remembered and treating every guest with kindness. Blue Heron firmly believes in the "wow factor" and the magic that lies in the details.
We mean it when we say let us make your culinary dream come true.
