"We were extremely pleased with the services we received from Amy's Culinary Adventures. Chef Amy Jurist and her staff provided not only delicious food at our son’s Bar Mitzvah, but also were so great to work with. Even the Temple staff commented after the event, that Amy's Culinary Adventures were the easiest caterers they have ever worked with! Amy is outstandingly proficient in her great tasting culinary creations, highly professional in her dealings, and incredibly proactive in her quest to provide the best service to her clients. If you have an occasion needing a great caterer, Amy is your go-to person! I would highly recommend Amy Jurist and her company for any catering needs." Sandy Lertzman
"I thoroughly loved the food prepared by Amy's Culinary Adventures. We used them for my son's Bar Mitzvah, and I can honestly say that EVERYONE enjoyed it! The portabello fries were fabulous and the mini port braised beef sliders were delicious. The food was simply amazing and I would highly recommend using Amy's Culinary Adventures for your next event." –Lisa Simone Soronow Woodland Hills, CA - Member Temple Ahvat Shalom
Buffet, Plated or Family Style? What's best for your event?
Mitzvahs & Sweet Sixteens
Your guests will rave about the delicious food, the impeccable service, and of course how well your child performed on their big day! We’ll make your child’s bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah celebration joyful, and take the stress out of planning the important details.
We will help you coordinate each detail of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah or Sweet Sixteen event and help you create a Kosher or non-Kosher style menu that works for both adults and the honored guest’s circle of friends. Whether you’re planning small bites for a large bash or a kid-friendly buffet, our yummy decadent food appeals to a variety of palates and budgets. Personalized seasonal menus, including Kosher and vegetarian, capture your child's unique vision with exciting and innovative appetizers, entrees and desserts.
The ritual and tradition that accompany the celebrations are time-honored rites that add solemnity and context to the event. We know that every detail is important to the experience and will ensure that each is handled with the appropriate amount of attention and respect.
We have the expertise and experience to cater this once-in-a-lifetime celebration, while honoring its special customs. With our extensive and gourmet bar mitzvah catering menu, beautiful and fun presenation, and our impeccable service, this special day will exceed your expectations.

Another recommended ingredient in throwing a mitzvah or sweet sixteen, aside from delicious food, of course, is an event coordinator.
