In-house Catering

Pippin Hill Artisan Catering is a market innovator with a distinctive operating philosophy and style, coupled with expertise in hosting weddings, high-end social events, and private receptions. Our catering business is defined as part of the ‘local food movement,’ featuring partnerships with regional farm producers. This philosophy determines our food sourcing and menu design.

The catering is a proprietary in-house operation, headed by Executive Chef Amalia Scatena. Our cuisine and menu offerings will be seasonal, following the cycles of locally produced agricultural products. We offer a variety of formal and informal dining choices, in either seated/plated meals or stationed style. At Pippin Hill we also cultivate our own organic vegetable and herb gardens. Our belief is based on the premise that a sustainable food production program, which is distributed and consumed locally, is beneficial to human health, our communities, and to the natural environment.

Chef Scatena’s cuisine and custom menu offerings use the freshest of ingredients. Our in-house team manages all aspects of the catering operation to ensure all menu offerings are tailored to your specifications. Your guests will enjoy regional and traditional menus centered on the abundant resources of locally produced vegetables, fruits, meats, and cheeses from the region’s best farmers.

Pippin Hill was an absolute dream venue. Megan Moses is there as a facilitator every step of the way. The bride and groom lofts made the day-of a breeze. The food was incredible and the chef went out of the way to make new menu items to suit our tastes.

Pippin Hill was great to work with. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating. Their in-house catering was fantastic and was one less thing we had to worry about on our wedding to-do list! Their Event Sales and Marketing Manager, Meg Forch was very responsive and helped make the wedding planning process run smoothly.

We hardly need to tell you that Pippin Hill is extraordinary, but overall, we really found that it was. Every detail of the property is thoughtful and lovely, the food is great, and the employees are serious pros at weddings. There were a few times when their communications with us were a little slow or unclear, and nothing is a bargain, but overall, we had a wonderful experience. Pippin Hill's staff did an especially excellent job setting things up for us on our wedding day, far beyond what I Read More
