Our Founder & Owner
Her passion for food, catering and fine entertaining has been with Dorrie Pariser her entire life. For years, she did strategic planning on Wall Street where she would be entertaining her staff, her clients, her friends. Classically trained, a close college friend asked Dorrie to cater her wedding in 1996. By 1997, World Wide Events Ltd. was born.
World Wide Events started out in little kitchens in Queens and since that time have moved to modern, stainless steel kitchens in Soho. And, since that time, a group of incredible chefs became part of the company, all trained in the most prestigious cooking schools, all with graduate training and all then training with World Wide Events. From their varied backgrounds, we are able to prepare virtually any kind of cuisine in any method of service.
Our mission is to provide our clients with unparalleled dining experiences, from cuisine, to service, to décor, to presentation, to joy.
World Wide Events prides itself in the quality of our ingredients, prime aged beef, fish that was literally swimming that morning, organic poultry and organic vegetables and fruits, bought from local purveyors as available. For each of our many events, we are custom caterers. All the ingredients begin arriving 2 days before at 4am. Our Executive Chef, Miha Juric, prepares all the stocks, sauces and marinades. He then directs our Sous Chefs in the preparation of your food, just for you.
From large and small wedding, to corporate events, to fundraisers, to non-profit events to intimate dining occasions, we blend together all our talents to ensure your dreams are exceeded. This is our pleasure.
