2018-2019 Catering and Weddings
Welcome to Le Vallauris Off Site Catering Page!

Over the 40 years of its existence Le Vallauris has acquired an excellent reputation in handling off site caterings for corporate parties and weddings.
We have been called by many the premier catering company in the Coachella Valley and many former clients can and will attest to that.
We have discovered that the key to success is the way we communicate with our potential clients and brides. Chef Jean Paul and I prefer to sit down on our beautiful patio discussing the wishes and desires of our potential clients in person while presenting them with samples of our cuisine.
We then send a basic proposal that can be modified in any form the client wishes including budgetary considerations. Our aim is to offer our customers a “one stop shop” personalized service considering that most of them do not reside in the Coachella Valley and do not have many opportunities to come to Palm Springs.
We can also be of assistance in providing or sourcing other services for them such as Rentals, Entertainment, Floral, Planning, etc.

A source of pride for us is that we prepare all food items on site and do not use methods of keeping prepared foods hot for long periods of time
before the service therefore ensuring freshness and maximizing flavors.
Le Vallauris is capable of catering events from 2 to 1,000 guests!
We are hereby presenting several packages for your consideration, we can however tailor-make any menus in several ethnic varieties.
Thank you for your consideration in choosing Le Vallauris for your catering needs!
