Chef Michael Saperstein unknowingly began his culinary career working summer cooking jobs as a teenager in his hometown of Baltimore, MD. He has since worked at some of the country’s highest rated restaurants. Chef Michael graduated Magna Cum Laude from Johnson & Wales University in North Miami in 1999 with a degree in Culinary Arts. Since then, he’s honed his trade at Aureole and Park Avenue Cafe in New York City, as well as Cafe Maxx in Pompano Beach, Bistro 17 in Fort Lauderdale, and Gotham City Restaurant and Bar in Delray Beach. Chef Saperstein has been awarded numerous 4 star reviews for his cuisine and has also been nominated for a “James Beard Rising Star in Culinary Arts” award. He describes his food as “Seasonal Fare”, prepared with a modern French influence, focusing on exceptional ingredients and big flavors, with fun and playful twists.
After a successful run as a Restaurant Chef, Chef Michael Saperstein’s culinary passion turned entrepreneurial. In 2004, he launched Wine Watch Unique Catering Services. Since then, he has continued to spread his culinary talents through the development of several successful restaurant & catering concepts, including Rebel House, Charm City Burger Company, El Jefe Luchador, and Revel & Fetes Catering - which has since evolved to become E&M Culinary, Events, & Creative. This transformation was a necessary step forward to best highlight the full range of creative services that have become a driving force behind all E&M brands. Chef Saperstein and his long time business partner, Evan David, continue to introduce innovative concepts into the hospitality world with fresh ideas and inimitable execution. Currently, we retain a team of accomplished chefs that exhibit a vast culinary range, while maintaining the high standard of quality to which we hold ourselves. The E&M brands have earned many accolades while displaying an uncompromising commitment to a unique experience and savory, chef-driven offerings. E&M Culinary, Events, & Creative is here to bring that quality directly to you.
“My Wife and I were introduced to Andy and his partner Rachel at E&M through a mutual friend who was giving us advice on companies to use for catering our wedding. Right off the bat I have to say we were definitely skeptical of having a catering company for what we both imagined would be a small wedding, but once we met with Andy and went over what they could do to transform my in-laws back yard into a beautiful wedding spot was amazing. They worked with our budget, and supplied 5 star service, incredible attention to detail, and were attentive to our needs while soothing the roars of stressed out parents and bridezil...cough...groomzillas. It's too bad the goal is to only get married once, because I would definitely hire them to do our wedding again. Highly recommend checking out their food selections. The apps we got were AMAZING. Thanks again, Andy and Rachel! You and your team made our day one of the happiest of our lives. Much love.”
“E&M Catering was amazing and I’d highly recommend them for your wedding or event. To say that we were happy with the food at our wedding reception is an understatement. The team at E&M executed their portion wonderfully! It was an easy decision to pick them based on the fabulous food, but every other aspect that they were responsible for in order to make the event run smoothly exceeded our (& our guests) expectations. In every aspect of the catering process from start to finish, they validated our decision to use them!! When we first reached out to E&M Catering, they spoke with us over the phone to get a feel for the type of food we were looking for. They provided us with a wide variety of options that fit into our original concept. We had a variety of dietary restrictions/allergies that we were trying to accommodate at our event, and without giving them a different dish/experience Chef Danielle worked with us to make all the guests have the same delicious meal. The tasting was not only delicious, but the food that was actually served at the event was cooked to the same caliber. (Yes, we made time in our reception to eat the food.) In addition to the wonderful food, the rental of the linens & equipment was competitively priced, and in regards to the services rendered by the professional staff all together it made this catering company unparalleled in our opinion. Following the wedding, we received several compliments on our wedding & the food & service was been a big part of that praise. Andy Cohen and Rachel Vondell were a pleasure to work with and if/when I need another event catered they will be the first on my call list.”
“EM Culinary catered a wine pairing holiday dinner at our home last weekend and it was great. Our guests loved everything! Andy & Rachel were professional and accommodating to work with prior to the event providing excellent menu choices and were quick to respond. Rachel, Kimberly and Chef Patrick arrived promptly at our home and delivered an excellent meal with friendly and efficient service. Our kitchen was left neat as a pin when they left. We will definitely use them again when we are hosting a special occasion and highly recommend them!”
"You guys are the greatest! I know Shirley really enjoyed working with you both. Thank you for making everything so perfect from the lighting in the trees, to Dave keeping everyone happy with drinks, and Scottie taking care of everyone’s hunger pains. I think Shirley and I have enough leftovers to throw two more parties. Also thank you for my bottle of Kettle One but I may lay off drinking for a couple of days. Hopefully you will hear from my friends when its time for them to entertain as I know they all loved everything. Thanks again for everything. Cheers."
"Only giving 5 stars because we can't give more! 1 month later and we still get comments on the phenomenal catering and bar service. Throughout the entire process Andy and Rachel guided us through everything making all decisions easy. We first knew we landed a great company when they found out my husband was from Zimbabwe and put a local dish on the proposed menu. That's just the type of service you get with E&M. It's customized and catered towards exactly what you are looking for. I plan to use this company again whenever we need catering and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them in a heartbeat. Do yourself a favor and give them a call."
“My company worked with E&M to organize a very high end brand night event with one of our key distributors in Pompano FL. Andy and his team delivered top shelf service for our event and simplified the planning process.We really appreciated their expertise when making menu selections and that they organized a venue visit ahead of our event to get out in front of logistical issues. I would recommend E&M to any company or individual who is planning an event and really cares about their guest’s experience.”
