If there is such a thing as an anti-caterer, this company, which specializes in nontraditional parties, may be it. Every detail is personalized down to the menu and the style of service. Chef Rossi lets her wacky sense of humor loose with off-the-wall food presentations and often serves dishes from several different cuisines at a single event -- she calls her firm "the wildest catering company this side of the Mason-Dixon line"

The Raging Skillet has been widely known as NYC's best-kept-secret but we've actually been catering non-traditional weddings, international soiree's and Christmas by way of The Philippines holiday bashes for over 26 years!

My husband and I had our wedding at The Green Building in Brooklyn, and we found The Raging Skillet on their list of recommended caterers. We were looking for a caterer who could provide a full vegan wedding, and Chef Rossi had full vegan menus on her website! Sounded great -- then we read her reviews and we're blown away by how much everyone loved her! Rossi and Charmaine were both an absolute pleasure to work with. They were genuinely excited about our wedding, went right along with the Harry Potter theme, and helped make everything super special. Our guests (who were mostly meat eaters) loved the food and are still raving about her portobello mushroom steaks and newly veganized "crack balls"! Rossi and Charmaine, we love you!!!! Thank you for making our wedding perfect from appetizers to dessert! (And for giving us the extra food to eat the next day!). We are so happy and would hire them alllllll over again!

From our initial tasting we were sold - Chef Rossi and Charmaine are amazing! Both are quick to respond to emails, easy to work with, and always willing to help answer a question or offer a suggestion. l, and most importantly her food was delicious. Our guests raved about cocktail hour, dinner, and have even asked where to buy the Oreo Crack. We highly recommend Raging Skillet and hope our friends and family book so we can enjoy more of her creative dishes!

Chef Rossi and her team are phenomenal!!! One of the few things my husband and I felt strongly about for our wedding was having a floating dinner of small plates, rather than a seated dinner. Even just a tiny bit of googling shows that Rossi is an expert at this format. I contacted her and she invited us to a couples tasting event, which was not only delicious from start to finish but also super fun. We booked her pretty much the second we walked out the door and I'm so glad we did! The food at our wedding was outstanding, as was the presentation and execution. Several guests told us it was the best food they'd ever eaten at a wedding and I completely agree. Moreover, Chef Rossi brings decades of expertise to the table. She struck a great balance of helping us get everything we wanted, while also telling us when our ideas might not work out so well and proposing modifications.

If you happen to be gluten free, then DEFINITELY look no further. Chef Rossi can cook anything, but I needed an all-gluten-free menu and everything was absolutely perfect. Some of the best gluten free food I've ever had, and most guests had no idea. This is truly a specialty you won't find with many wedding caterers.

Finally, in addition to the delicious food, Charmaine of Raging Skillet is such a wonderful manager and was truly an indispensable part of making sure our night went smoothly. She attended the walk through of our venue, ensured that our timeline made sense, and was there the night-of to make sure things went off without a hitch-- which they did! She also made sure that my husband and I tasted everything and always had a glass of champagne handy.

I highly recommend Raging Skillet and am so grateful they were a part of our wedding day!

I can't say enough about the dream team of Chef Rossi and Charmaine! From the very first meeting we knew that we were in good hands and that the food would be incredible, but they went way above and beyond and exceeded our expectations in every single way. Not only was the food ridiculously good, but the wait staff too just completely blew me away with their kindness and graciousness and attentiveness to each and every guest. They made sure that we, as the bride and groom, were taken care of and that we ate, and on top of that gave us a TON of leftovers to take home after, including dessert! The wait staff was so incredibly sweet, friendly (interacting with everyone, even our dog!), and made sure everything went smoothly and everyone was happy and well-fed. Charmaine is one of the sweetest people I've ever met, and her sheer presence, including checking in on us throughout the evening, made us feel that everything was cool, calm, and under control. She made the night incredibly smooth and seamless and was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. Chef Rossi is not only an amazingly talented chef but also an incredible human being, who worked with us despite numerous changes, questions, and other snags. She was very accommodating of our budget and willing to work with us every single step of the way. We now truly see why she has won so many awards - they are very well-deserved!! I would recommend Chef Rossi and her incredible team to anyone in a heartbeat. Thank you for making our special day that much more - we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you!!

Best wedding decision we made! Having great food at our wedding was one of our top priorities and a non-negotiable. Both my husband and I are huge foodies so being able to enjoy our food was really important. After meeting with Chef Rossi at her tasting we had to look no further. The food was outstanding!! After a summer of weddings, we (and our family and friends) were thrilled to have something that was both delicious and not just your standard wedding fare. Its difficult to even find words to do justice for how amazing the food was. From lobster rolls, to peanut butter and bacon sandwiches, to pulled pork tacos, it was unbelievable.

Equally as incredible was the service and experience we were provided! Chef Rossi and Charmaine were absolutely outstanding! Chef Rossi had a call with me to chat about what types of food we like, don’t like and what our vision was. The thoughtfulness, care, and calm attitude she had on this call was amazing and present throughout the entire process. She is just a genuine good person. When she provided us with the menu, it was spot on! Presentation was perfect and during cocktail hour there was plenty to go around, no standing and waiting to rush the staff as they came out. And I don’t know how they did it, but they were able to get the main course served to everyone so quickly and the food was still hot and fresh. Charmaine was a gem to work with as well and I have never seen someone so in tune and attentive to ALL the guests and went out of her way to ensure my husband and I had everything we needed. She certainly brought everything together. Last but certainly not least, Chef Rossi went out of her way to package up all of the left over food for us!! It was so sweet of her to do, and we enjoyed it so much we even brought some on our flight to Kenya!! My family who was staying in town devoured the rest and was also so thankful for it. Chef Rossi, you rocked our wedding and we cannot thank you enough!!

Chef Rossi and her team at the Raging Skillet were a dream to work with for our June 2016 wedding! Right from the start, my husband and I wanted the catering to reflect our respective cultures, and the Raging Skillet came highly recommended to us from the the Picnic House at Prospect Park. In the end, they were the only catering company we consulted with and we are so glad that we stuck with them! They were able to create an eclectic and custom menu that reflected both our cultures. Needless to say, the food was amazing and our guests raved about so many of the dishes. Moreover, throughout the planning process, Chef Rossi and Charmaine gave us many helpful suggestions that made our wedding run so much more smoothly. On the day of the wedding, the staff was incredibly kind, friendly, and overall, just wonderful people to work with. A special shoutout to Charmaine, who was so responsive and supportive throughout the entire wedding. In the end, both our reception and ceremony went smoothly, and we owe a lot of that to the Raging Skillet for their top-notch expertise, professionalism, and dedication. I honestly do not have anything negative to say about the Raging Skillet--they know what they are doing, they go above and beyond what is asked of them, and they do not disappoint! You just have to put your trust in them and let them work their magic!

There was a tasting event at the picnic house with a half dozen vendors. I got to chat with the chef and the party planner as well as taste the yummy food. My husband and I also went to the kitchen to sample some of the food and discuss menu.
The wedding was multiracial and multi cultural and we were delighted that Chef Rossi was so versatile.

The Raging Skillet catered our wedding on 6/11/16 - we initially found then when we saw one of their menus at what ended up being our venue. Working with Chef Rossi was fantastic...she gave us plenty of personal attention, was a ton of fun to work with when figuring out the menu, and in the end the food was absolutely amazing. All of our guests were stuffed and happy, which was our goal from the beginning!
