About Us


Spice of Life was founded in 2004 by Chef Mike Bomberg, one of the city’s best known and most innovative Chefs. The Company was reformatted in 2005 as a Limited Liability company with ownership by Mike along with his brother-in-law Mauricio del Valle Prieto.

With chef driven emphasis on top quality inventive cuisine and extraordinary customer relations, Spice of Life has seen continual growth, even through the economic downturn of 2007-2009, gaining new clients and expanding its ability to handle progressively larger events.

The arrival of Jessica Silvaggio as a sales associate, then sales manager in 2009, proved a game changer for the company. SOL quickly began to move on from school lunch programs and local social events, to becoming a full-fledged player in San Antonio’s corporate, social, wedding and convention catering market. SOL’s approved status at all of the city’s major event sites helped catapult the company to the next level.

In 2013 Chef Mike and his team took advantage of a unique opportunity to purchase and renovate the trophy property in Castle Hills that formally housed the Lodge Restaurant into a world class event center. Spice of life found a new home for their commercial kitchen and a site for their own special events.

Today Bomberg directs a team of experienced culinarians and event planners in the production and presentation of a wide variety of cuisines at sites all over South Texas. We strive to exceed customer’s expectations EVERY time and we pride ourselves first on our willingness to listen and then on our ability to deliver both quality and value on a consistent basis.
