Paradise Gourmet:
Paradise Gourmet Catering offers a distinguished level of service with creative food presentations, delicious flavors and gracious service. They utilize local farmers and purveyors so whenever possible the produce is grown right here on the Big Island – fresh, and mostly organic and the fish you will enjoy for dinner was probably caught that day by local fishermen. These local products combined with creative customized menus are sure to impress even most sophisticated palate.
