Palette Dome Cuisine™ is a Washington DC based boutique catering and personal chefs venture derived from the food vision of two individuals: Hagai Mesilati, chef, and Jay Doeden, food enthusiast. With passionate interests in culinary design and events planning, the unique combination of these two individuals’ experience sets Palette Dome Cuisine among the best in boutique catering firms. With a balanced mix of Modern Mediterranean culinary influences by Chef Mesilati™ and international dining and events experience by Doeden, we deliver an ultimate and painless catering experience.
Chef Mesilati’s cooking experience began over two decades ago when he initially learned traditional North African, Middle Eastern and European dishes. As he has developed his own culinary style, two key characteristics clearly accentuated Chef Mesilati’s dishes – fresh ingredients and exotic flavors. Family secrets were handed down, giving him a well-honed ability to select prime ingredients that will deliver rich and intense flavors. Care is taken in the simplest steps to ensure the highest quality throughout every step of the dining experience.
