About Five Spice

Mukti and Imelda met in Berkeley, California, where the food culture and philosophy of local produce and innovation blended well with their eclectic culinary style and approach to event design. 

Applying native California sensibilities within a New York context, they developed their own brand of "exotic comfort foods" and created Five Spice Catering. Their farmer's market-meets-bazaar approach means marrying fresh ingredients with distinctive flavors from roads less traveled. 

Five Spice is proud to bring quality and novelty to all aspects of your event, including food, presentation and staff- regardless of budget. 

In addition to weddings, we have worked with a broad range of corporate clients including sports, fashion, and lifestyle brands. Past and current clients include: Kind Snacks, Nike, Puma, Burton Snowboards, Vice, WeSC, House of Marley, Teen Vogue, Thomas Pink, Issey Miyake, and more. We also customize menus to pair with and showcase wine and spirits for clients such as Wine Enthusiast Magazine and Glenmorangie. 

We embrace the opportunity to create menus that are vegan, vegetarian, paleo, halal, and gluten free.

Why Five Spice

Five Spice brings together flavor, beauty, and function to make events memorable. We treat each event as if it were our own. 

Being good to the earth and mindful of sustainability is important to us. We are thoughtful about the products we use and the amount of waste we generate. Our disposables are biodegradable, compostable and Eco-friendly—we never use plastic or styrofoam. We also give a portion of our profits to organizations that work to unite local farms and city residents of all economic backgrounds with fresh, seasonal, ethically grown food. Please ask us more about this! 

We offer special rates and donations for non-profit organizations and special causes to the extent we are capable.
