Our Story From Scratch Catering Cedarburg, WI

Our Story - From Scratch Catering

I’m Donna Erickson, Executive Chef and owner of “From Scratch Catering.” It is hard to believe, but I have been catering for over 20 years, serving hundreds of clients, while satisfying thousands of palates. From intimate dinner parties to corporate lunches and elaborate wedding feasts, I have had the joy and privilege of doing it all. Born and raised in the beautiful and historic Town of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, I felt this would be the perfect environment to locate my business. Three generations of home-made recipes, using only the freshest of ingredients, have laid a foundation for the From Scratch menu. Add to this the modern touch that will attract any palate, any style, any need, and you have the distinction that is uniquely “From Scratch.”

Whether it is a full service event or a quick drop off, our entire team is passionate about catering. Our warm and friendly style is centered on the personal needs of the client. We want to serve you by putting the “special” into your special occasion. Rest assured, we will do our best to make your event seamless, your meal tasty, and your budget affordable.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the delicious delights, first-class presentation, top-notch service you provided to our customer event last Thursday. Everything was perfect! I had so many guests asking who catered our event as the food was so tasty. In fact, we had several customers that stayed after the conclusion of the event right (right by the food). I always know I can entrust our invaluable partner, From Scratch Catering for such important events. Kari and her team did a fantastic job! I appreciated her attention to all the details of the event down to coordinating the colors of the linens. It didn’t go unnoticed. For my next event I will be sure to contact From Scratch for all my catering needs! (Thank you for making me look so good too in front of my team!)

Thank you again for such a superb lunch! Our Board of Directors is in love with your catering. We have now confirmed you will always cater for us when we have board meetings. We are working out the schedule for the remainder of the year and I will let you know when I have that. Everyone else who tried the lunch in the office is still talking about it. Outstanding!! Your presentation is always impeccable and I never have to worry about making it look nice. Thank you! Thank you!

I wish I could give you guys 10 stars for how amazing you all are! First off Addie & Donna are incredible! The planning, the phone calls, the emails. We are so blessed we have found you guys! Our biggest fear was cold tasteless food when we were looking for a caterer and what we received was hot, delicious, tasteful food! The amount of compliments we received from our guests was insane! You guys are fantastic! I will never recommend anyone else!

Jordan Theys

From the moment we met with Addie & her team at From Scratch, we knew they understood our vision for our special day. We wanted our food to be a focal point of the event, and we couldn’t have asked for a better team to deliver upon that. We have received so many compliments, even until this day, from our clients on the taste, variety & execution of the food throughout our wedding.
