"We have had Chris and her team cater several events at our home and we are always impressed with the results. She shops locally, brings wonderfully fresh ingredients with her and then fills my kitchen with the most wonderful sights and aromas! Every meal has been beyond amazing, Chris is talented and creative in her cooking and presentation. And her team cleans everything until it sparkles and then leaves us with fabulous containers of leftovers! Working with Chris is always a joy and my guests are continually trying to steal her for their events. We are happy to share her, she is our ‘Secret Ingredient’ to a successful dinner party!"

"Hi Chris, just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed the food at Mary’s birthday party on Thursday night. I especially loved the orzo salad and the chicken sticks with the peanut sauce. The servers were terrific.They were everywhere but unobtrusive and very helpful. They were so nice to be around and made everything comfortable. I've never had an event catered and honestly don't usually enjoy the food at catered events, so I wanted to let you know you and your staff have changed my impressions. Thanks for a feast!"
