Gourmet Wedding Catering: Not a Contradiction at Villa de Amore!
Delicious wedding catering has always been included in Villa de Amore wedding packages. Local Temecula Valley caterers had been used for this until recently. The Villa has now brought its catering in-house with the expansion of its onsite kitchen and the hiring of Executive Chef Michael Musser.
“The long-term business plan has always been to bring the catering in-house” says Villa de Amore General Manager David Musser. “We were providing great wedding catering for our couples and their guests but we knew that we could do even better bringing it onsite” David continues, “Chef Michael has a true passion for his menu and we are constantly getting great compliments about it.”
“…The food was AMAZING! I was so impressed with the different variety of food choices they had during tastings, and it allowed for us to pick the best meals. We had so many of our guest talk and rave about the food. We enjoyed the variety of different appetizers that were offered (BBQ sliders are a must!) along with the amazing entrees. The food was beyond perfect and delicious! Aimee and her staff did an amazing job!…” Keilene 6/10/2016 WeddingWire.com
Professional and Passionate
Chef Michael trained at the San Diego Culinary Institute. He brings a passion for fresh, organic farm-to-table ingredients that make each of his dishes wonderful. We caught up with the Chef as he was preparing some really great looking steaks for a wedding reception that evening. “I have always loved cooking and decided that I would pursue it professionally” Chef Michael continues, “Here in Southern California, we have access to so many great ingredients I feel spoiled sometimes. We are able to source the bulk of our menu items from local organic farms and the Villa even has its own orchard across the valley producing citrus, avocado and other produce items.”
The Villa de Amore Catering Menu offers a great selection of items including traditional, contemporary and vegan. If you have a special dish in mind Chef Michael and his team are happy to accommodate your request!
