Where It Began
Octavius found himself in a precarious situation when he was approached by an acquaintance, Mr. Michael Boards. Mr. Boards advised Octavius that he would be cooking for his retirement dinner. Octavius politely let Mr. Boards know that he does not cater, he just cooks for his family. Mr. Boards, who has since become a close friend, insisted. He stated that he knows what he wants and Octavius and his wife Michelle will be doing the cooking. Needless to say, Mr. Boards saw potential. Once the next set of circumstances fell into miraculous place, the cooking began. Octavius has been cooking ever since. The key component is doing everything with excellence and to the glory of Whom we serve. Reaching our goals of perfecting tasty meals and being requested to cook has led this Detroit native on an exciting journey. Because his potential met his faith,
Big Taste Catering was born.
