Our Company

Cocoa Pesto Catering began when chef Scott Geddes decided to develop his enthusiasm for wining and dining into a small business. Cocoa and Pesto are two of his favourite ingredients.

Together with an invariably talented and diverse crew, Cocoa Pesto Catering turns simple ideas and fresh product into delicious and memorable events. Scott has large repertoire of recipes, some from family and friends and others are variations on the culturally diverse food he has been exposed to over the years. Cocoa Pesto Inc. has flourished and our desire to expand has evolved to include an inn and restaurant: 494King Restaurant at the Woodshire Inn (closed as of June 19, 2020.)
