It all began when we decided to put our talents together....

Chef Alexis started his culinary career at the age of 5, standing on a stool flipping fried chicken. His mom taught him the little secrets of this ancient art. After of his training in NYC, Chef Alexis moved to Florida where he worked for some of most reknown restaurant chains where he met Leo.

Leo worked opening restaurants and large upscale catering events at one of famous South Florida Colleges. Leo, a Certified Event Planner, pursued his dream of running his own catering company. In 2013, following Chef Alexis suggestion, Leo quit his job and both left South Florida to open AV GOURMET.

The journey together was not easy but it worthed every bit. AV GOURMET has won awards and 5 stars reviews. Hundreds of clients and brides (our BFFs) have become extended families and we cook for their baby showers, anniversaries and family affairs. 

Now AV GOURMET is the best catering company for weddings and is leading the corporate catering market with innovative cuisine and fresh ingredients from farmers markets.
