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. 







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. 







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.
