About Culinary Productions

Culinary Productions, Inc. is a full-service premiere catering company that has been servicing the Gulf Coast area since 2004. With over 25 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.

*Please check out our pricing menu below for costs associated with labor, bar glasses, and specialty services.
