    Take a look at our featured recipe of the week.


At Riot Catering, we are focused on the artistry of food, the power and the pleasure of food, and you.  Our focus is threefold: Our relationships with local growers, local vendors and our clients, the experiences we create and share with our local community and clients, and the food we create.  Our love for food is reflected in our food knowledge.  The types of culinary experiences we are capable of devising are seemingly boundless; from the fanciest French cuisine to the most exotic ethnic entrees, we are confident we can provide the menu you desire.

Riot Catering provides services outside the usual scope of traditional catering companies.  Riot Catering is proud to offer in-home cooking classes and personal chef services, in addition to our world class catering and event planning.  We encourage you to take the time and see what we have to offer; you may be surprised how affordable it can be to have three chef-prepared meals cooked for your family each week or to host a cooking class/dinner party for ten of your closest friends or family.

Chef Brenden Calnan folds his culinary vision, philosophy, and style into the rich mixture that is Riot Catering.  Having worked for an established, award-winning catering company for the last two years, Chef Calnan decided that the next step in his journey was setting out on his own; creating an entity that embodied his culinary philosophy, his nutritional ideals, his passion for locally sourced food and his belief in community and education.  We welcome you to the incarnation of that next step.  We welcome you to Riot Catering.
