Murphy’s Catering Philosophy:

Here at Murphy’s Catering, we strive to provide top notch quality and service. We utilize as many local ingredients as possible to deliver some of the freshest food in the Upper Valley. We can deliver small drops for lunch or dinner as well as full-on catered cocktail parties or plated dinner events. We take much pride in our versatility, from our dry rubbed and slow smoked BBQ to a from-scratch wedding replete with hors d’oeuvres, and a full-serviced dinner.

Sample Menus

These are simple sample menus designed to start a dialogue with you about the type of food you want at your event.

We have blended together styles of American BBQ and added our own New England twists. We smoke our premium meats using a dry rub method. We make EVERYTHING from scratch and locally source our ingredients. Please enjoy the dedication of our talented culinary team.
