About Us

Maison Cuisine is an eco-conscious, full-service catering & event planning company, specializing in corporate events, weddings and other social events. From black tie weddings to the annual company picnic, Maison Cuisine caters to your every need. As a full service caterer, we understand what makes an event unforgettable, from lighting & rentals to venue selection. No detail is too small.

What started as a small kitchen in Oakbrook known as HOME Catering, has grown into one of Chicago’s most popular “boutique caterers”. We have recently opened a second kitchen in New Buffalo, MI, offering our services to Southwest Michigan’s “Harbor Country” & Northwest Indiana.

Maison Cuisine starts each dish with the highest quality ingredients. We use locally and organically grown fruits and vegetables, when seasonally available – some coming from our own organic garden!  We offer natural meats & poultry, in addition to freshly prepared baked goods.

Executive Chef 

Danielle (Barranco) Wheeler opened HOME Catering in 2002, after working for Artistic Events by Carlyn Berghoff. She has since expanded with Maison Cuisine. Being of French-Italian descent, cooking was not a chore growing up, it was a lifestyle!

Danielle graduated with a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu/Cooking & Hospitality Institute of Chicago. She also holds a degree in Interior Design, which allows for the most innovative displays of food!
