Hemant Mathur Catering is Indian hospitality at its best. Our food is an expression of timeless traditions rooted in lesser-known regional cuisines including South Indian, Bengali, Kashmiri and Gujarati. We build upon the fragrant spices, bright herbs and luscious sauces of India's home cookery, translating distinct local dishes for the global palate.
Served in elegant bites, small plates, family-style buffets and pre-plated fine dining, our custom menu brings to life the vision of every client's event. We gladly accommodate a range of venues and styles from intimate celebrations, cocktail parties and staff luncheons to corporate galas, benefit dinners and lavish weddings. At Hemant Mathur Catering, we create exquisite experiences built on elegant flavors and cultural traditions that ensure our meals become part of your lasting memories.
Last night's dinner is still on my mind with the tastes a pleasant memory. Thank you for providing a delicious meal, which was made even better with your gracious presence through the evening Hemantji. It was an A Team, both in the kitchen and in the front of the house. An altogether terrific evening for which you deserve a lot of credit.;
With my thanks and best wishes
Each Year, Hemant and Surbhi, founders of HM Catering, design an innovative menu for 600 of our guests at the American India Foundation's New York Gala. At our 2017 New York gala, they prepared a steamed fish dish paired with a coconut sauce. The dish was a hit given the aroma of the coconut and curry leaves. Many were impressed that the fish was cooked perfectly, given the volume of attendees. My favorite experience is sampling the Viennese dessert they do for us each year. They have taken classics often considered "street food," and put an elegant touch on our favorites.;
Surbhi and Hemant did a spectacular job with our wedding, everyone was raving about the food! They were also a delight to work with in the whole planning process. We couldn't have had a better experience and outcome!;
The food was simply spectacular. I tasted a bit of the dessert and the fantastic sauce on the paneer and loved it. But all my guests said it was so delicious and flawlessly executed. One of my sweetest memories of Saturday was seeing you and Hemant smiling with so much joy in your black chefs' garb as we were walking by. I know how much love and heart you poured into this, beyond your usual impeccable professional skills. For this, my gratitude. Hemant and Surbhi - you both are the best. Thank you for a stunningly spectacular effort - it was beyond. Beyond! Love, Light, Laughter,;
It was a pure joy to work with both of you and please extend my gratitude to your team as well;
My husband and I hired Chefs Hemant and Surbhi for a wedding in Mexico. I am a North Indian from a long food heritage and a family that lives to eat, and my husband is South Indian, and we also wanted some of the Mexican food traditions to be incorporated. We had guests hailing from over 25 countries, all of them ‘global citizens’. In summary, food was an important part of our wedding.
Chefs went above and beyond to make what could have been a complicated affair of a destination wedding as fun and simple as possible. They even researched Indian stores in Mexico and either ordered basic Indian ingredients from a distance or brought those not available with them! They are incredibly thoughtful when it comes to devising the menu. They have decades of experience of cooking for large crowds with high demands. This you notice in their advice but also their attention to detail on the day. Everything went perfectly. We wanted three different cultures captured (including a twist of Mexican) and way more dishes than traditionally would be served. Both sides of the family thought their food was made authentically! They were incredibly accommodating but also forthright based on their experience when we made some suggestions that would not have gone down well! They were the chefs for the whole day, which covered a multitude of canapes and food stations as well as non-alcoholic drinks by the beach, the welcome starters for the reception, the evening meal - which was supported and served by Mexican staff they had never met. They also did the wedding cake as well as the dessert station that covered desserts from North and South India (including churros and local delicacies). Everything not only tasted heavenly, but also looked almost too good to touch. The guests were blown away. .
You and your guests will not be disappointed. That I can guarantee. Since then we have asked Chefs Surbhi and Hemant to cater small events also. Even at those events, their attention to presentation and individual taste is commended. ;
We cannot recommend them highly enough.
I would like to thank you both for such a magnificent and scrumptious feast you and your team provided for Persis and Eric's Sangeet.
Hemant: You should patent your lamb chops. .
Everyone complimented the food during cocktail hour, the meal itself and the desserts were the crowning jewels. .
It was a pure joy to work with both of you and please extend my gratitude to your team as well. ;
