Mattison’s Chef’s work directly with a rabbi so that we can officially offer kosher catering (this is important since kosher catering has to be legitimate to be considered truly kosher because “there is no such thing as ‘kosher-style’ catering” as the rabbi has informed us) as we do go the extra mile to be official.
