About Us

Pearl Island Catering is the alliance of Javier Figueroa-Ray a private chef also known as Chef with no Kitchen and Sober Pierre of Pearl Island Foods a Caribbean focused small batch food manufacturer.

They both have Caribbean connections that brought their vision of a Caribbean inspired catering company to the city of Charlottesville. Sober Pierre is originally from Homestead, FL but his family originates from Haiti on the island of Hispaniola. Javier Figueroa-Ray orientates from the island of Puerto Rico.

Pearl Island Catering gave us an opportunity to reconnect with our roots and make Caribbean cuisine accessible to the city of Charlottesville. What differentiates us are the distinct ingredients that flavor our respective cuisines and we get the opportunity to fuse some of those flavors into non-traditional cuisines.

We are excited to share the flavor of our culture with you.
