Our Catering History


The Kitchen for Exploring Foods was founded by Peggy Dark in 1984. Since that time it has emerged as one of the premier boutique catering firms in Southern California, with a devoted following among the region’s lovers of great food. The Kitchen's continued success was built from gaining loyal customers with an appreciation for entertaining. Bountiful and beautifully displayed food along with a welcoming and friendly staff are just two of the attributes that the Kitchen is known for. As the seasons change our menus follow, creating a memorable event, every time.
