Hello, my name is Michael Cook, the owner and chef of Michael’s Catering. I grew up in a hotel kitchen since my father was a general manager for Holiday Inn. I fell in love with the preparation of food and soon began cooking for a hotel, then worked my way up through the ranks to be come a chef in Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas. Then, as Food Director, I became more involved in the operations end to round out my experience.
About eight years ago, I decided to use my catering experience for large and small groups to start my own catering business, which has been blooming ever since.
At Michael’s Catering, we provide a wide range of catering services for groups from 50 to 2500 guests. Whether you prefer banquet or custom menus, we cater for seated dinners, buffets and receptions with hot and cold hors d oeuvres. We prepare all types of cuisine – Mexican, Southwestern, Italian, and Luau. Planners also can choose from our premium choices, such as prime rib, lobster and other seafood dishes.
More than half of our business is for wedding related events – receptions, showers, rehearsal dinners; but, we also provide catered breakfasts, lunches, dinners and breaks all over Oklahoma for all type events.
Michael’s catering is known for our exceptional presentation. I create my own ice sculptures from a variety of designs to suit the occasion. We create a “wow” food table by displaying the foods at different heights using mirrors and crystal glassware. We supply flowers and food linens that coordinate with your color scheme and even use decorative touches such as feathers to enhance the impression. We offer two foot to five foot cheese or shrimp towers (with as many as 800 shrimp!).
Utensils, plates, glassware are all provided, as are the set up and tear down. We supply a professional server and wait staff for sit down and banquet style events. For added convenience, we will also be happy to assist you in arranging for bar service, wedding and specialty cakes, rentals, florals and entertainment.
If an Oklahoma wedding or other event is in your future, please contact Michael’s Catering and discover how experience, professionalism, quality and artistic creativity sets us apart from the competition. For personal service, call me direct at 405-556-0377.
