Didi & Co is a small creative catering company that makes parties sparkle. We excel in plant-based food, local whenever possible. We work with herbs like anise hyssop, apple mint, or African basil flowers.
We buy our meat from small local farmers. Our aim, besides making a delicious food, is to work towards a thriving planet 300 years from now. Didi & Co. is a social enterprise. In addition to preparing great food, we train and employ graduates of Haley House Bakery Cafe and Ne-Cat, a tuition free culinary school in Roxbury. We are fully insured.
Didi & Co. caters dinner parties, corporate events, fundraisers, Easter egg hunts, block parties, homecomings, memorials, or any reason to meet and eat. We work with your wallet and personality.
Postscript: Didi LOVES cooking with kids. She teaches pizza, knife skills, omelets, cake baking and more.
Its full on participation. Then full-on eating.
This menu is just a start - if you’d like something else, just ask.
