From private cordial affairs to elaborate corporate functions, East End Catering believes every special event is best complemented by a unique and sophisticated culinary experience. Toward that end, sole proprietor and celebrity chef Michael Mosolino personally oversees every aspect of each East End Catering endeavor.

Michael Mosolino, a well-known culinary instructor and television host, is the mastermind behind East End Catering and The Deli Counter Fine Foods in Southampton. His television show, A Culinary Experience, has been seen from Long Island's East End to Europe. He has been a featured chef in the South Beach Food & Wine Festival hosted by Food & Wine Magazine, and on the Food Network.
He began his kitchen career as a boy in Florida taking jobs that brought him in contact with great restaurants and their chefs. While supporting himself as a runaway — the challenging life chronicled in his 2009 book titled Come, My Darling, Come — he developed a passion for people and food that has earned him great respect among his peers in the food industry.
Mosolino spent his late teens in the Hamptons with a beloved icon of the area, his aunt Gloria Jones, widow of James Jones, author of From Here to Eternity and The Thin Red Line. At 20, he moved to Manhattan to pursue his love for the stage but ultimately returned to his first love — cooking. His resume includes PJ Clarke’s, Petaluma and the Hamptons own Barefoot Contessa.
Now one of Long Island’s leading chefs, Mosolino offers culinary arts classes, workshops and lectures.
Mosolino lives in Southampton with wife Julie and their son Andy.
