Kurt Kretzschmar enjoys creating dishes like the ones he grew up eating - foods made from the best and freshest ingredients available. Growing up surrounded by immigrants really instilled the importance of cooking with passion. It didn’t matter if it was Christmas dinner or Sunday dinner. All of the meals felt special and he learned that the food didn’t have to be fancy or have 20 components; it just had to be made with great ingredients and love. Always having a love of food, Kurt enrolled in Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island where he honed his skills and learned the disciplines of the culinary arts and food service management.
Cocktail Caterers was opened in 2007 by Kurt and his partner Michael Watts. They bring the best of both worlds to ensure their clients equally enjoy the "front of house" and "back of house" experiences. Their goal is to create a customised menu, attentive staffing and a personalised attention to detail. Their biggest compliment is hearing that their clients "taste passion" and feel the comfort of having "friends taking care of the food and logistics."
