Owner and executive chef Michael Goguen is known by clients and friends alike for cooking from the heart. With Melt, Mike combines his generous and creative spirit with his passions for food, wine and travel to dream up innovative yet unpretentious, down to earth cooking.

Melt doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all approach. Being small works in our favor. It means our ideas are entirely bespoke to you and our ingredients are always lovingly prepared and perfectly fresh. And it guarantees a more personal service, ensuring you get exactly the experience you wished for.

At Melt we use only the very highest quality, locally sourced ingredients to create every, perfectly delicious dish. Our clients tell us we’re a pleasure to work with, creating extraordinary food with minimum fuss. Our creativity and relentless attention to detail ensures that each event is endlessly memorable and exceeds your highest expectations.


“Melt Catering is by far some of the best food we ate while living in Zurich. From a homestyle yet elegant Thanksgiving dinner to our farewell cocktail party, Melt Catering exceeded our expectations! Mike’s attention to detail was amazing, his resources are endless and not only was the quality and presentation of the food superior, the service by Mike and his team was excellent. Most importantly, Mike’s ability to meet our needs along with his willingness to work with us throughout the entire planning process will not be forgotten. Thank you Mike!”
— LIZ FITZPATRICK, PRIVATE CATERING
“Melt Catering has provided us with an amazing “home cooked” Thanksgiving feast for the last two years. Mike and his team make legendary spinach dip, cornbread, sweat potato puree, and cupcakes. Everything else we have had has been excellent as well, but those dishes were particularly memorable. Mike is very flexible, reliable and easy to work with. We will certainly make Melt a part of our annual Thanksgiving tradition and look forward to working with them for other special occasions as well.”
— THOMAS MEEHAN–RITTER, PRIVATE EVENT
“We have used Melt Catering for both large and small events, from internal working lunches to hosted public company board meetings, and Melt’s food has always been well received and something different from the usual fare.”

“Thanks so much for all you and your team did to make our party a success. The food was great, the desserts where delicious, the friendliness and efficiency of the team made everyone feel at ease and having you in charge of the whole catering allowed my wife and I to fully enjoy the time with our guests. I will definitively contact you for our next party!”
— DANIEL REVILLA, PRIVATE CATERING
“My company regularly organizes public training courses to which Mike has been catering lunch for over one year. Typically we have 15 to 20 people at each two or three day course. His lunches are regularly cited by our participants among the high points of the course. Mike is reliable, cares deeply about the food and its presentation, and is very easy to work with. Highly recommended.”
— PETER STEVENS, CORPORATE EVENT
“It was not easy finding an authentic American cuisine caterer for our Thanksgiving business lunch, but Melt Catering delivered in a big way. Our Thanksgiving was an absolute delight. The food was delicious and made with top-quality ingredients. Melt’s (or you can say Mike’s) flexibility and service-oriented approach made this possible – and for all of that, we give thanks!”
