Whether you’re planning a grand celebration or an intimate dinner party, La Casella offers exceptional food, presentation and service.
Patti Moring, the popular culinary aficionado behind Butter & Broth Soups and the former College of Central Florida coordinator of food services and Rosemary & Thyme Catering, is making her delectable creations directly available to you through her innovative new catering company. Her approach is simple—to create delicious, healthy, custom dining experiences for her clients, that honor fresh and flavorful cuisine.
“Everything I make probably has four ingredients, but it’s all in the way you bring the flavors and ingredients together,” Moring explains. “I’m not offering a client a set menu and pumping out a bunch of prepared meals, as is often standard for other caterers. A lot of caterers will use frozen staples, like mini cheesecakes for example, or premixed seasonings. I don’t do that. Everything I cook is fresh and from scratch. I create menus that the client would come up with on their own.”
And although Moring has a top-notch staff, she is hands-on with every client. “I’m with the client from start to finish. I personally prepare all the food,” she offers. “When I cook for people it makes them happy and that makes me happy. I love when we open the chafing dishes and people first see the food. When everyone is enjoying the food, it’s such a joy for me.”
La Casella also offers a meals-to-go pantry freezer that allows you to stop in and grab some of Moring’s famous staples like chicken pot pie, beef stew and macaroni and cheese, as well as her delicious homemade soups. Moring wants to be a convenient resource for lovingly prepared comfort foods, whether it be for a sick friend, a potluck, or just to enjoy at home rather than having to cook. She has also started shipping orders around the country, so you can share a little Ocala comfort food with your loved ones in other places.
While Moring creates memorable meals for up to 300 guests, she also offers private chef services which can be staffed in your home and curated, with everything from beautiful dishes to custom floral arrangements, or provided as a drop-off service. “I can deliver the food to you and you can serve it on your own dishes and even let people think you cooked it…I’ll never tell!”
