Burke & Black

Burke & Black is a POC, woman-owned catering company serving the greater San Francisco/Bay Area. We specialize in grazing tables, boards, boxes, and cones. As a small company, we set ourselves apart by maintaining a commitment to using the best ingredients available. We deliver premium artisanal cheeses, homemade jams & compotes, and desserts.

Burke & Black is also devoted to the environment through sustainable packaging. Our company eschews single-use plastics, all boxes are compostable, and all jars & utensils are reusable.

More than just creating beautiful food for our clients, everything we do is fresh, seasonal, high quality, and made with the taste foremost in our minds.

The company was founded in 2019 by Nicole Burke and Monique Black, who met at the Michelin-starred restaurant Quince in San Francisco while working together. When home life took them away from the restaurant world, they decided to create Burke & Black. Through Burke & Black, they continued doing what they love, creating memorable experiences with hospitality and a commitment to quality and taste. 

Though Monique left the company in early 2021, her passion, commitment, and attention to detail will always be a part of Burke & Black.
