David’s Catering and Events (formerly Catering by Davids), founded in 1991 by David Poritzky, is a full service, owner operated, upscale social caterer, serving fresh, flavorful food in a variety of settings. We cater a broad range of events from elegant weddings, small dinner parties, clambakes, pig roasts, and seasonal corporate events to equestrian shows for 5,000. As a full service caterer, whether your party is in a mansion, an open field, in your home, backyard or on the beach, Catering by David’s has the capabilities to meet all of your needs.
Davids’ staff is professionals, who not only prepare delicious plentiful food, but present it beautifully. David’s Catering and Events has vast experience and expertise in food art and high end social catering and his highly trained team creates well-run, exquisite events that will make your party perfect.
In 2007 Catering by Davids made the transition to Davids Catering and Events. Aggressive moves were made by David to bring his passion for food to the masses. Seasoned professionals were brought on board to expand the catering division into the aggressive New England catering scene.
Starting the business at the age of 19, David built a complete commercial kitchen on wheels from scratch, selling gourmet sandwiches as Davids World Famous, which has grown into a highly successful restaurant and an expanding corporate catering business. David’s Catering and Events, with its rapidly growing reputation as a creative and delicious social “boutique” caterer, is wowing clients around the Boston area.
In addition, summers find his fleet of restaurant service vehicles at some of the leading equestrian jumper shows in the Northeast, such as the Hampton Classic on Long Island, Vermont Summer Festival, the Boston Jumper Classic in Hamilton, and all the way south to the Capital Challenge in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
David’s newest venture, with partner and sister Betsy Maselek, is GrandmasChickenSoup.com, an internet business that sends gift packages of fresh chicken soup throughout the U.S. as a “delicious alternative to sending flowers.”
The broad experience of Xyomie Padilla, Catering Sales Manager, adds a unique touch to the team at David’s Catering and Events. Xyomie started her career as an international importer/ exporter of fine Italian jewelry. After extensive time buying and selling in Italy, Xyomie realized her passion lay with Italy’s food and wine. She then changed career paths, graduated from The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts and the Elizabeth Bishop Wine Resource Center at Boston University to become a chef and sommelier and ditched the jewelry industry (and David is glad she did).
After moving to Massachusetts, Xyomie honed her skills in the kitchen as the owner and executive chef of The Main Ingredient Catering and most recently as Executive Sous Chef at Capers Catering of Stoneham, MA.
Xyomie brings great passion to every menu she creates for our clients with her ability to think outside the box and integrate the culinary influences of the world’s cuisines. She takes the “sales” out of selling to make all of David’s clients feel at ease with the planning of their special event. Her elegant manner makes each person with whom she comes in contact feel like a new friend.
Without question, the Boston area catering scene has gotten a lot more interesting and competitive with the team of “Boutique Caterers” that David Poritzky has assembled at David’s Catering and Events. Creating memorable events and unique cuisine is a shared vision that David’s team brings to this competitive market.
