Mama Said

Catering Menu

We dedicate ourselves to making enjoyable food that tastes like it was made with all the care and attention that you might get from Grandma. Or your friend’s Nana. We pay careful attention to food intolerances and want there to be something for everyone. You’ll see there are variations to accommodate different requirements. We rarely use a packaged seasoning, preferring to make them from scratch; that means grinding achiote seeds to create our own “sazon”, roasting dried chili peppers for creating chili-based sauces and marinades. Our catering menu offers complete meals in addition to small bites. Email us at to discuss your event!


Please contact us for pricing information. Hand pies come in a variety of doughs and fillings, all handmade from scratch by us. Our signature dough is a butter-based shortcrust (pie crust), made with a blend of local flours and either buttermilk or fresh whey from our housemade cheese. Our olive oil dough is leavened lightly with yeast, and is our favorite option for vegan pies. Our gluten-free dough is carefully made in the same kitchen, with buckwheat, tapioca starch, egg, and butter. Arepas can be a vegan & GF option, made with Colombian-style masa (pre-cooked cornmeal) and olive oil. Potstickers & pierogi are made with a blend of unbleached & local flour and egg (pierogi also get whey) - unless made vegan or GF by special request.
