Our Story

Hi. My name is Ken Larsen, Owner/Chef of Something's Cooking Catering. Thank you for "stopping in."

Upon graduation from culinary school, my goal was to open a catering business. To perfect my trade, I worked at high-end hotels, country clubs, and restaurants. Then, along with a partner (now retired), Something's Cooking Catering was started as a part-time endeavor.

After 20 years of experience, hard work, and on-the-job education, the time had come to make Something's Cooking Catering a full-time venture.

Now, in 2018, Something's Cooking Catering is entering its 37th successful year. Word of mouth has been my best advertisement, but I am also involved in using online resources to market my services. You can find Something's Cooking Catering on Facebook and LinkedIn and please feel free to sign up to receive my emails (see the CONTACT INFO available on all pages of this website).

Throughout the Chicago area, my business has been known for quality food, attention to detail, and its focus on customer satisfaction. I'm thankful that my business has helped me make many friends and happy customers.

Something's Cooking Catering serves all of Chicago and most surrounding suburbs. I would be happy to cater your next event!
