    Ursula Rafer is an excellent chef and caterer. She has been handling our hoilday party of 130 people for the past several years. She does an amazing job providing innovative cuisine and professional service. The party gets better every year and we plan on using her until the end of time.

    Chef Ursula catered and coordinated my son's bar mitzvah. The food was incredible, ranging from a cheese course, to pass around appetizers to buffet dishes and assorted amazing cupcakes for dessert. My guests raved about the food and service. The food was creative, delicious and unique. I have recommended Ursula to friends and associates and every person has nothing but the highest praise for her and her food!

    Working with Ursula was simply the best! She accommodated the needs of my family vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores. And she did it with grace, style, and creativity. Every dish was SO DELICIOUS and definitely made with love. Thanks so much, Ursula! : )
