Premier Catering and Event Production Company Brings Passion to the Table One Event at a Time

 Since its inception in 1996, Passion of Life Gourmet has catered and planned some of South Florida’s finest events with one unique facet: a passion for fine dining and commitment to a final product that is always delectable and exquisitely designed.   Led by Executive Chef Tano and his lifelong companion and business partner Patricia Borgono, the company prides itself on offering diverse, ethnic cuisines using rich local ingredients and traditional techniques.  Time after time Passion of Life Gourmet continues to surpass client expectations creating a timeless event experience for South Florida.

As a 30 year veteran of the culinary industry, Executive Chef Tano’s excitement and commitment to the authenticity of International Mediterranean Cuisine has set Passion of Life Gourmet one step above the rest. Chef Tano’s passion for food is distinctive; his knowledge of International-Mediterranean cuisine is unrivaled and his ability to create unimaginable presentations is supreme.  With stints at The Waldorf Astoria in New York and the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, he has amassed years of experience and the understanding of complexities of planning and catering any event, be it large or small.  

Whether planning an event for 20 or 2500, Passion of Life Gourmet does far more than catering. To make certain they provide their clients with everything they could want or need, the company offers a variety of resources as well as consulting services for all types of events from weddings and quinces to corporate events and theme parties.  From complete menu planning, floral and décor services, entertainment and rental equipment, to logistical management Passion of Life Gourmet has it all.  Leading event planning and design is Passion of Life Gourmet’s Desiree Lucero, Catering and Event Director, as well as Private Designer, Liz Fabregas.   “Liz is top notch when it comes to capturing what the client truly envisions to make their event a completely unique experience,” states Patricia Borgono. “…and as for Desiree she is the power house of the company ensuring that every detail is executed to perfection” continues Borgono. 

In addition to providing exquisite cuisine and amazing events, Passion of Life Gourmet often works with community events and local charities donating time and resources.  Last year they donated food and service to a Christmas dinner to benefit survivors of domestic violence and this spring they donated food to the green weekend.  With Chef Tano’s wealth of culinary expertise, Passion of Life Gourmet has been requested for internationally themed events such as the German Oktoberfest, Chile Festival, Brazilian Festival and the Caribbean Festival.  Sensitive to all needs, they provide Carte Blanch to all clients working with their allotted budgets to create a menu fit for a king. 

Passion of Life Gourmet is able to maintain its rank among South Florida’s most successful catering and events production companies through one simple rule: A great party entails knowing that the guests of the party come first, last and always.   Chef Tano knows this is key stating “These hosts throw these events in the hopes that their guests remember it as a highlight of their year, it’s our job to make sure they make memories to last for years”.  Chef Tano and Patricia ensure that they never lose sight of why they began the business of fine catering and event planning. Their passion radiates in everything they touch, which has helped solidify Passion of Life Gourmet as the top catering and events production experts in all of South Florida.  To learn more visit or call 305.246.2625
