Cheeky Chilli Goes Global!
Multi-award winning wedding and events caterer cheeky Chilli have announced they are taking their unique mix of creative catering and event expertise to the USA!
The Wirral based experts have signed a deal to deliver exceptional outside catering services for Miami based Michelle Olivia Events.
The team, who already deliver events across Europe are planning their first research trip over to the States in the next few weeks and they couldn’t be more excited.
Director Kim Maher explained, ‘Miami is synonymous with glamorous events, however, traditionally these events take place in stunning venues who already have superb caterers on site. Outdoor event catering is still quite an unusual concept over there and as Michelle and her team will be concentrating on large-scale outdoor events, she felt we could really make our mark in this area.’
Fellow Cheeky Chilli Founder and Chef Director Phil Williams, who formerly ran the iconic Marsh Cat restaurant in Parkgate, did much of his training in New Orleans and the team are super-excited to discover everything the deep South has to offer.
“The Southern States are famed for their incredible ingredients and iconic dishes”, said Kim. “We can’t wait to start working with some of the amazing fresh seafood and fabulous raw ingredients they have in the area and adapting our menus to make the most of their local produce.”
Countryside Chic to Beachside Brilliance
Michelle Olivia Events is the brainchild of acclaimed luxury events planner Michelle Stubbs. Michelle, who also owns luxury wedding venue Delamere Manor in Cheshire. She now splits her time between the rolling Cheshire countryside and super-cool Miami scene and she said she couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.
‘Cheeky Chilli really helped to transform the food offering at Delamere’, said Michelle. ‘They are so creative and their talent and attention to detail is second to none. I think they will make a big splash on the Miami food scene. We are really looking at large-scale, outdoor events so their expertise will be absolutely invaluable.’
