Unique Catering Offers Affordable Elegance

By S. Mathur

With a menu inspired by recipes from Cajun, Italian, Middle Eastern, Caribbean and African cooking, Unique catering lives up to its name. Owner Donna Sellers looks to recipes from her Middle Eastern grandmother and Cajun mother in law, as well as her experience of French and Italian cuisine while living in New Orleans. Located in Arlington, Unique catering has been serving the northeast Texas area since 1997.

Having catered over 650 weddings, Unique is established as an elegant, affordable choice for special events. Sellers attributes this to the individual care and attention given to each event and to the flexibility of the menu.

"We offer great variety and we customize to fit our clients culinary tastes and budget," she said. "We can also provide vegan, vegetarian and kosher meals."

A typical menu might include shrimp and grits, jambalaya and salad, or chicken and brisket sliders, pasta salad and fruits and veggies. Entrees include beef, chicken, seafood or pork dishes. Choices like roast beef as jus, chicken kabob, bourbon glazed salmon, and shrimp jambalaya ensure that there will be no leftovers, and that the food will be one of the things that guest remember about the event. A pre-wedding tasting allows clients to sample the food that will be served on the actual day.

The all inclusive Elegance on a Budget package offers a variety of cheeses, cheese ball, vegetable tray with dip, fruit tray with dip, a choice of cocktail meatballs, cocktail sausages, chicken or pasta salad and a beverage station. Catering staff are formal and professional in black tux shirts, black pants & aprons. The package also includes silver trays, set-up, serving and clean-up. Clients note that Sellers and her staff will go above and beyond their stated duties, to make each event a success. This includes details like a to go package for the couple, who may not have time to eat during the day.

Unique also caters other events like corporate functions and parties, and provides catering services for radio and TV advertising, television and the film industry. Sellers is connected to the community, as an active member of several local area associations including the Women's Division of the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce, the Tarrant County Live Theatre League and the Texas Association of Film and Tape Professionals.

"Unique Catering is a company that believes in giving back to the community," Sellers said. "We offer a military, police, fireman and non-profit discounts. I enjoy cooking and I love people."

Unique catering has won multiple awards including a Best of 2015 award from Thumbtack and a 2010 Best of Weddings from The Knot.
