About Culinary Productions

Culinary Productions, Inc. is a full-service premiere catering company that has been servicing the Gulf Coast area for 12 years since 2004. With over 21 years of experience in the catering industry, owner Mike DeSorbo can provide catering services for all types of events. CPI can execute everything from wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, served dinners to gourmet buffets, and much more. We can help make any and all arrangements for your event, including referrals for music, photographers, florists, salons, wedding coordinators, ordering rentals, and coordinating with other vendors.

CPI customizes each menu to fit the client’s needs. There are a few different factors that help determine pricing for each event. Food items, the number of items, and the type of event are just a few examples of what determines pricing for each event. After sitting down with each client, a proposal is then worked up with the desired services and menu items requested.

We also offer free consultations in person or by phone to gather all the information needed for an event. In order to book a date, a 10% deposit is required to hold the date. Please fill out the “Contact Us” form or call the office at 850-469-0445 to book your appointment.

*Please check out our pricing menu below for costs associated with labor, bar glasses, and specialty services.

We are happy you have visited our website and we hope to give you most of the information you will need to plan your event.

For pricing of menu items, you can fill out our info form on the "contact form page" with the desired menu items and we can put a quote together for you.

Our Events

Every few months since August 2010, CPI continues to present a one-of-a-kind themed "Gourmet Dinner Night". Voted "Best Charity Event" for Best of the Coast 2013, "Gourmet Dinner Night" is a chance for CPI to showcase our culinary skills, promote local artists and musicians, and raise awareness about local charities.

CPI teams up with other sponsors and vendors who have an opportunity to promote their services. Each dinner night has a theme and corresponding gourmet menu. Guests enjoy a gourmet buffet style dinner with passed apps and dessert as well as complimentary beer, wine, a signature cocktail, and non-alcoholic beverages.

At this social event, guests can peruse the featured artist's work which is for sale, bid on silent auction items, and win door prizes, all while listening to live music.


"I loved the party we planned for VT-10. Thank you for making it epic. The food was great and your staff was very professional. Please be prepared to be our company of choice for all VT-10 events in the future. You guys made all the difference."

Eric Zack, VT-10

"The event went wonderfully! The food was fantastic! Tristan was lovely and I am delighted she was a part of our celebration. We will most definitely contact you for further events and always recommend CPI to our family and friends."

Suzie Payne, WSRE

"Everything was absolutely amazing! The food was perfect and people were raving about it for days afterwards. I could say something special about every aspect of the meal because it was all special. It was exactly how we were envisioning it. The service was excellent as well, everyone I saw and met seemed to be in good spirits and very helpful. We would recommend you to anyone with catering needs in the future!"

Elizabeth & Felipe

"It was great! The food was fabulous! The service was perfect. The entire staff was friendly and presented well. I really can’t say enough good things about ya’ll. I fielded calls all day on Sunday about who the caterer was!"

Candy Blackmon

"Culinary Productions catered our wedding at Sanders Beach and did a fantastic job! All of our friends and family raved about how everything looked and tasted --the oyster shooters were a big highlight. The staff was amazing, too: right after our ceremony, my husband and I walked out to the dock on our own to have a little moment and on our way out, they rushed two delicious glasses of champagne. Such a special little extra that we will never forget. At the end of the night, they handled all the clean-up and even wrapped up a little to-go box for us. Delicious food, gorgeous displays, accommodating and incredibly friendly staff. Thank you for making our wedding a success!"
