Wedding Catering in 20002

Chef Cesario is well known for bringing a lively, international flair to the Washington D.C. culinary scene. His vision of Q Caterers began from his travels through Europe where he embraced the flavors and textures of Italian and French Cuisine. Upon returning to his native city of Valencia, Venezuela, he enrolled in a culinary academy to embrace the skills required of a “chef de cuisine.” Chef Cesario then went on to study urban planning, with an emphasis in the Art Nouveau movement of the early twentieth century, while attending the La Cambre Institute in Brussels in 1995. This, combined with his education in classical architecture, are what makes his merging of design and culinary excellence so unique and in such high demand.

Today, Chef Cesario has embarked on his most exciting professional adventure in creating Q Caterers Inc. Having called Washington D.C. home since 1998, he has worked with a number of distinguished chefs and caterers in the mid-Atlantic region preparing his signature cuisine for distinguished clients including First Ladies, CEOs of big business and other Washington notables. He is known for creating memorable, once-in-a-lifetime events for Maryland’s Eastern Shore elites and concocting delectable cocktail elixirs in breathtaking venues from Vancouver, Canada to weddings on the sugar sands of Florida’s exclusive resort destinations.

His cuisine has received local media awards and has been featured in local print and television segments including WUSA Channel 9 local news. He was also featured in Is the Kitchen the New Venue of Foreign Policy? A Report of the Conflict Cuisine Project from the American University School of International Service.

Chef Cesario looks forward to bringing his passion for food to discerning clients who demand and appreciate outstanding cuisine with impeccable attention to detail and unique, artful presentation.

The “Q” in Q Caterers is in recognition of Carlos’s Mother’s memory, the name Quintero. Chef Cesario considers Q Caterers an ongoing celebration of his mother’s life.

Q Caterers is a high-class caterer who offers top-notch service and delicious food that everyone will love. I hosted a Housewarming party recently and Q Caterers was fantastic! Carlos came up with a wonderful menu that everyone enjoyed (and is still talking about)! From the Sweet and Spicy Shrimp to the Jamaican Tilapia Ceviche to the Firecracker hot Popcorn, every bite was scrumptious and full of flavor! The service was outstanding. Rosanna was awesome! She was attentive and professional and seemed to enjoy serving despite us getting in the way at times! The presentation and constant supply of food gave everyone an opportunity to enjoy all the menu had to offer. I highly recommend Q Caterers if you are looking for an affordable, fun and reliable catering service.
