In the 8 years since, First Class Catering has expanded across the state. Caleb has a private meeting with every bride and groom, and his unique perspective and love of food can help elevate your wedding to an event people will be talking about for years to come.
Executive Chef Seth Shelton
As a young man of 15. starting in the culinary industry, I, as many before me, worked in every aspect of food and beverage. After a short time I began to become more and more interested in the culinary side of it and saw an opportunity to work beside a very talented local chef. As years continued I focused on learning from the experience of the chefs before me and combined that with my own research. I began to find my own style and talent combining tradition with the more contemporary and the exploration of different cultural cooking. I would like to believe I am well versed in many culinary forms but with still so much to learn, as new amazing things are done everyday. Today my inspiration comes in many form, decades of chefs, my peers, my friends, and my wife and children. In this ever changing world I will look forward to obtaining the knowledge and accepting the challenges put before me as a chef and as a father.
