About Us

Southern Hospitality at its finest with Catering by Selene. Selene meets you with that personal attention necessary to make your day the best it can be.
Our Beginnings



My husband Peter and I had been well known in Essex, CT, for many years for our yearly Southern BBQ events in our home. On February 14, 2004, we opened the doors to our kitchen which housed Porky Pete’s BBQ and Catering and Catering By Selene. Our Company has grown into a full service catering company with diverse outstanding menus. We cater large formal weddings and events as well as the very small intimate affairs, BBQ picnics, boat excursions, family reunions, clam bakes, corporate meetings and events and holiday parties to name just a few.
