Our Story

Love Catering was founded by a trio of Los Angeles caterers, Jimmy Smith, Hermes Clausz, and Jonathan Darr, who combined their passion for food and growing client lists into a modern, sustainable and custom catering outfit that has grown exponentially.  Now in its tenth year, Love Catering continues to expand beyond the classic catering model, incorporating on-site hospitality services for JP Morgan Private Bank, Disney Animation, and Milk Studios, in-home catering for Los Angeles' most prolific hosts and hostesses, and production accommodation for major studios and production teams from film to fashion.


At Love Catering we are very passionate about the use of local and seasonal products using organic and sustainable meat, dairy, and produce whenever possible.  Whether Niman Ranch pork, organic eggs and milk, or produce from Tutti Frutti or Weiser Family Farms, we not only get better ingredients at the height of their season, we also support local agriculture and sustainable communities. 

Another way that Love Catering keeps its commitment to sustainability is by following a recycling and composting program ensuring an almost zero waste kitchen.

We love our local farmers and we know you will love the dishes they help us create.
