    Chef Al catered my sister's 60th birthday party and all of his food was absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend him for any event. Besides delicious food, his prices are reasonable.

    Alan catered for my wedding. We had a rustic theme and were looking for some good barbecue with southern sides. We had been to too many weddings with mediocre food, and wanted food that guests would truly enjoy. And that's just what happened. Every table I visited, people ranted and raved over the food. I was so glad that my guests were happy.
    I was impressed with the level of professionalism Alan exhibited throughout the entire process. He was careful to find out exactly what I wanted, and promptly responded in all correspondence prior to the event. He was truly a pleasure to work with and I recommend him to anyone looking for quality catering at a great price.

    My wife and I have had the great pleasure of attending several different catered meals supplied by Al Proteau. We have never had anything but exceptional food and service. We would highly recommend Al for his food and service. Such a great guy to work with and very reasonable as well.

    Al's cooking is great. He is very hospital and the food is always hot and good. It amazes me how this guy can make so much food and manage to keep it hot and ready. I have been to a few functions catered by Abundance Catering and was never disappointed. His pulled pork is the absolute best. Every year he has a Early Thanksgiving Feast and this year the food was wonderful. Even though it was a Thanksgiving Feast in addition to four turkeys Al also had some of his famous pulled pork. I would highly recommend Al and Abundance Custom Catering for any event you have planned. You rock Al.......

I have been a part of some good old country Bar-B-Que,to a sit down elegant 5 course dinner. Everything Al does is done in excellence. In addition to all that He does it all for a fair and reasonable price. I call upon Al for all occassions, and he comes through all the time.

    I'm Alex V. and I wanted to say that Big Al is the best caterer around. He catered my wedding and the food was GREAT! at a very good price. The layout display of food was very nice and professional. We had two kinds of meat and all the trimmings to go with it. The food was kept warm for seconds and plenty of cold drinks with ice provided by Al. After the wedding he cleaned up everything and the place we rented was left clean. I recommend Abundance Catering to everyone. Money well spent.

    I had Abundance Catering cater an event at my facility, the food was amazing!! The service was wonderful. I would most definantly use them again.

    I am a consumer of the food that this individual prepairs on a regular basis because he cooks for our church for several events and invites groups at a time to his home to simply cook for us and share his hospitality along with great food.

    I have attended a wedding that he catered and it was displayed beautifully and was absolutly scrumptious.

    I would defenantly reccomend his service.

    Abundance Custom Catering was who we picked for our wedding reception in 2009. They were fantastic. Preplanning went smoothly and they were able to accommodate my vision for my big day. From the display to the food, everything was great and we received compliments about it afterwards.

Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?

A. For 10 years I was hired by the US Navy NCIS to do thier liazon party. I served detectives, special agents, state and local police, FBI,CIA, judges and lawyers. One year a hurricane came through the day before and we had to rough it. On the way to the event, that day, the truck that was hauling my cooker decided to catch on fire after the axel broke and shot the entire wheel assembly into traffic on I95. A gentleman stopped and he towed me, the food and my supplies to the site free of charge. Never did get his name...

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I started cooking at the ripe old age of 5. I would help my grandfather flip pancakes and hamburgers at the French Club in Hartford CT. Its been a really fun trip ever since!!
