California Rose Catering is a Berkeley-based, family-owned company that specializes in fine food and start-to-finish event design. Executive Chef Dov Sims states, “Good food is the centerpiece of all our events!” His flare for unique comfort food is nothing short of impressive and he seamlessly combines the traditional flavors of Latin America and Asia, but most notably, he delivers a culinary experience that will suit your style, your expectation and your palette.
For vegan and vegetarian weddings, Chef Dov and his team offer a vast selection of unique and whimsical dishes sure to please every taste. From handmade tamales with butternut squash and caramelized onions, to their “Hoppin John” stuffed tomato with wild mushrooms and garlic chives, Chef Dov understands that presenting well-balanced vegan dishes is just as important as presenting well-balanced non Vegan dishes.
He states, “We never cut corners on ingredients, and our trusted relationships with the best fresh produce, meat, fish, bread, cheese and beverage purveyors ensure an outstanding meal for you and your guests.” They work closely with clients to develop an event concept and plan customized themes and menus. Simply put, Dov says: “We are food professionals that put our heart and soul into every dish.”

“We were so thrilled with their service. I would recommend them first off because they make fabulous food. Our request was for Mexican food and they went above and beyond our request. The food was so authentic and very reasonably priced.”
“They were awesome in every category. Dov was so impressive. He was friendly and answered all questions. Most importantly, he really listened to what we wanted. We had asked for a meal that had attitude and style, all with a very international influence. It was intimate and had a great spirit to it. Rose even made special homemade desserts.”
