Culinary Productions, Inc. is a full-service premiere catering company that has been servicing the Gulf Coast area for 12 years since 2004. With over 21 years of experience in the catering industry, owner Mike DeSorbo can provide catering services for all types of events. CPI can execute everything from wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, served dinners to gourmet buffets, and much more. We can help make any and all arrangements for your event, including referrals for music, photographers, florists, salons, wedding coordinators, ordering rentals, and coordinating with other vendors.
CPI customizes each menu to fit the client’s needs. There are a few different factors that help determine pricing for each event. Food items, the number of items, and the type of event are just a few examples of what determines pricing for each event. After sitting down with each client, a proposal is then worked up with the desired services and menu items requested.
We also offer free consultations in person or by phone to gather all the information needed for an event. In order to book a date, a 10% deposit is required to hold the date. Please fill out the “Contact Us” form or call the office at 850-469-0445 to book your appointment.

Every few months since August 2010, CPI continues to present a one-of-a-kind themed "Gourmet Dinner Night". Voted "Best Charity Event" for Best of the Coast 2013, "Gourmet Dinner Night" is a chance for CPI to showcase our culinary skills, promote local artists and musicians, and raise awareness about local charities.
CPI teams up with other sponsors and vendors who have an opportunity to promote their services. Each dinner night has a theme and corresponding gourmet menu. Guests enjoy a gourmet buffet style dinner with passed apps and dessert as well as complimentary beer, wine, a signature cocktail, and non-alcoholic beverages.
At this social event, guests can peruse the featured artist's work which is for sale, bid on silent auction items, and win door prizes, all while listening to live music.
CPI has raised over $23,000 for local charities through proceeds from silent auctions and door prize drawings. The following charities have benefited from "Gourmet Dinner Night":
