Experienced.

With twenty-three years of experience in full-service catering, our talented and dedicated team will collaborate with you to design the event you envision. Whether it's planning the wedding of your dreams, a company holiday party, or a farm-to-table dinner in our urban farm, we'll work with you every step of the way to create a memorable occasion. 

 

 

 

 

 

Distinguished.

Big Delicious Planet has catered to thousands of the most distinguished clients and discriminating palates: Senator Barack Obama, Sting, Elton John, Donatella Versace, Chef Rick Bayless, Neil Young, Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, Jimmy Buffet, Metallica, and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. We know from experience that success is in the details, and we work hard to get every one right. 

 

 

 

 

 

Innovative.

Just as the business began on a whim more than two decades ago, Heidi enjoys taking an idea and seeing what happens, whether it’s planting a vegetable garden, creating a new menu, or implementing a new sustainability program. What started as a simple plan for a small organic garden turned into an urban farm with 50 raised beds and an apiary. We now plan our menus around Chicago’s growing season and the crops we’ll be harvesting at the time of an event, which is a lot of fun.

Urban Farm


Urban Farm


 

Zero miles.

How many caterers do you know with two city lots of urban farm space and two beehives? We're growing 141 different varities of 41 different crops 15 ft from our kitchen door. Our clients love that many of their menu items come from our farm, and that we can plan a menu based on what we'll be growing in a specific season. When Big Delicious Planet caters your event, you reap the benefits of our bountiful organic garden.
