Who We Are

At its heart, the Rice Table is the story of a guy from Louisiana and a young woman from Indonesia who had a son that loves to eat.

Established in spring of 2008 by chef Chris Reed and his Dutch-Indonesian mother Jane, Rice Table was originally conceived as a way to sell their family's Indonesian dishes at local street festivals, There they discovered a demand for true Indonesian food in Chicago, the company quickly grew into a full service caterer and pop-up dinner host.  Along the way chef Chris began to also incorporate classic Cajun dishes, learned from his Louisiana-born father Don into his repertoire.

Today, the Rice Table is a delightful marriage of seafood gumbo and sweet-soy ginger chicken. Focused on showcasing the best of both Indonesian and Cajun cuisines, Rice Table stands out from the rest as a truly unique caterer.
