Tasteful Connections has been serving the Rochester community as a family-owned
and operated catering business for over 30 years. We recognize that’s a long time
to be in business. We credit our success to the fact that we always put our client’s needs first.
We keep our business fresh by attending food and catering trade shows that showcase cutting edge products and services. We, in turn, offer these to our clientele. We stay well educated and up to date through our memberships, and participating in webinars, seminars and attending industry networking events.

Humble Beginnings

Giving and Sharing

Tasteful Connections has become known in upstate New York for generosity

and philanthropy. We regularly support The Strong, Geva Theatre,

Habitat for Humanity, Eastman House, Ronald McDonald House, YMCA, RAIHN,

Open Door Mission and local food cupboards among others.

We make donations of our mouthwatering food and stations

as well as financial contributions to many worthwhile fundraising events.

Inspiration, Scope and Passion

Catering is what we do… 

Are you looking for take-out in disposable pans dropped at the front door? That is NOT what we do, we specialize in making every event special. We thrive on working in new and different locations…how about the rooftop of the downtown YMCA? We embrace the opportunity to tackle new menu items…We enjoy playing dress up...how about costuming our staff in Mardi Gras attire for a yearly fundraiser? This is our comfort zone…where it’s not so comfortable, but where we can stretch a bit to create exciting, memorable once in a lifetime events.

We have a roster of resources that helps us do what we do. We provide or arrange for tents, tables and chairs, floral, décor, designer linens, grills, music and entertainment, ice carvings, balloons, wedding cakes, favors and more.

We are Rochester's premier off-premise caterer servicing many of Rochester's finest

institutions including The Strong, University of Rochester, RIT, Geva Theater,

George Eastman House and the Monroe County Parks.


At Tasteful Connections we share the passion of great food, beautiful events

and creative entertaining. Sometimes we even get a little emotional about what we do.

We put our heart and soul into every event.

We are your recipe for a Tasteful event.

We’ll watch for your e-mail!
