BellaRu Catering

I started BellaRu Catering in 2017, after overwhelming requests from my clients for my food and services (who can say no to that?) So I rented a 4100 sq ft commercial kitchen in Highland Park, IL, a northern suburb of Chicago and I was off!  My approach was always to give our clients the best possible food options - multi-cultural cuisine made from authentic recipes at a great price.


We can create menus that are Passed, Plated, Family Style, Russian Family Style, Russian Table Service, Buffet or Butlered Buffet.  Our robust menu ideas reflect a sampling of our authentic and fusion world cuisine from American to Asian, from Southern BBQ to Mexican to Indian and beyond. Our kitchen space allows us to host small events here or we can take the whole show on the road!

Our worldly chef's make all of your food from scratch to order with the finest ingredients. We specialize in combining multiple authentic and/or fusion ethnic cuisines to create a harmonious meal. 

We are here to make your event extraordinary!  I look forward to meeting you and working with you to turn your vision into an event to remember!

"Maya led a cooking class at my home for a large group of friends. She did an incredible job - from the planning to the execution of the event. We worked closely together to craft a menu that catered to the group, and Maya took it from there - bringing all the ingredients and cooking equipment. She split us into groups where we each created part of the meal. The food was delicious! I especially appreciated how Maya helped clean the kitchen when we were done.

I highly recommend Maya and BellaRu for your next event - whether it is catering a party or hosting a cooking class.

Thank you Maya!"
