About this pro

How does your business stand out?

My food is always made the same day fresh never frozen and in season. I always ask you what you like and LISTEN to what you want. My style is homemade, so if you want the food that looks like plastic then I am not the caterer for you, but if you want the food to be the thing people remember about your event then I am the right person. I have over 25 years of experience the largest crowd I ever served was 250 for hot lunch. I am happy from a tray of wings all the way to 3 hot courses and 3 sides for 300.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I live to feed people and I get no greater joy then hearing people tell me that what they just ate was amazing. I am a home grown passionate Foodie and after hearing for years how good my food was I decided to take the plunge and do it for a living which means I never have to work another day in my life.

    VERY DISAPPOINTING!! I'm not usually one to write reviews but I have to write about my terrible experience with Camille for catering my daughter's graduation party. I will give her 2 stars only because my guests said the food was good, but her service was so poor I couldn't even believe it. I'm not go into all the details but there were a couple of things wrong with the menu choices and problems with the food set up, but the worst part was she really did not seem to care one little bit, did not offer to make any adjustments to the bill or anything to make me happy, or even apologize. Not only did she not try to make me happy she had an attitude with me I spoke to her on the phone, then I email her and never got a response. Very poor customer service. No way to run a business. My mistake for hiring her.

    Five Stars for Camille!!!!! I hired Camille to cater my son's High School graduation party. We decided on a BBQ menu and it couldn't have been more delicious! Her Pulled Pork is perfectly saucy and succulent, Boneless Southern Fried Chicken had a buttermilk tang and was so tender. I urge you to add her Southern Green Beans and Creamed Corn to adorn these Main Courses. I along with my guests give Camille rave reviews and recommend her highly! She is now my go to caterer! Camille.....thank you for sharing your culinary talents and I wish you much success!!!

    Fantastic Caterer!
    We retired and threw ourselves a retirement party for 75 people. Camille was awesome!! ALL of the food was delicious. My guests raved about the food. No one had anything negative to say. We were able to enjoy our own party! Her professionalism was evident in all she did and we had no worries. Her prices were VERY reasonable and the value great. We would not hesitate to have her cater our future parties!

    Thank you Connie! I know you and Bill will have an amazing retirement. I was so happy to hear everyone's compliments.

    Awesome Catering by Camille! 5 Stars!
    I am so happy I was able to find Camille via Thumbtack. She was very responsive to our needs and went above and beyond to ensure that my daughter, who is Vegan, was also taken care of. She arrived early, despite heavy snowfalls that day, to set up and provided all the essentials! Our taco bar was a big hit. I will definitely be using her services for other functions in the future! Thank you!

    Camille preparation of food second to none you wont be disappointed.
    Camille did an outstanding job for our family party. Camille and her daughter came to our house 1/2 hour before our scheduled time and set everything up for us. There were 32 people at our family party and the whole family was overly impressed with the food that was prepared by Camille. My wife and I would give Camille an excellent rating for preparation of the food and making our family party a success. Thank You Camille from Frank and Pat.

    It was my pleasure and I hope you and Pat have a wonderful 2017

    Amazing homemade food
    We loved the homestyle cooking! We had a small gathering for 30 people and the flexibility and passion that Camille showed for cooking an amazing meal was evident. We loved the appetizers (stuffed mushrooms and spinach/artichoke bread) and the pastas (Sage Garlic Parm Angelhair and Penne Vodka)

    Excellent Homestyle Comfort Food
    Everyone at my 60th birthday bash LOVED Camille's food. From the pulled pork, to the mac & cheese to the cheesecake desserts; all rave reviews! Her BBQ is amazing: pork, chicken and ribs. I grew up in the south and I'm picky so trust me. She's got this down. Her potato salad and popper dip are out of this world. I wanted a party with fabulous comfort food and Camille delivered on every level. She set up a buffet and appetizers at our venue early and everything looked perfect. I feel so lucky we found her. My family and media friends were gaga over it. I can't say enough. She gets my highest recommendation and I would hire her again in a minute. Lu Ann Cahn

    Camille and her food were both an amazing addition to my moms 60th birthday party! Her homestyle cooking was the perfect choice to satisfy all of our guests who were of all ages and who came from all around the country to celebrate with us. Camille herself was a great help and went out of her way to pick up almost all of the things we needed for the meal - plates, utensils, napkins, beer tubs, etc - which was nice because it was one less thing to worry about on such a stressful day. Would definitely recommend Camille (and her amazing pulled pork!!!) to anyone planning an event!

    Ty so much for your kind words and I loved helping you give your mom a big bday bash best wishes for many more

    Planning a party?
    Make sure you bring your appetite for Camille's Homestyle Catering because I assure you you'll want to go back for seconds! The pulled pork and baked beans are incredibly delicious and the tasty salads so fresh and out of this world! However I can't say enough about the dips, the buffalo dip for one, are so Sensational and a wonderful experience! With the holiday season approaching Camille's Homestyle catering will be the perfect touch for any Gathering!

    Fantastic food!!! Superb service!!
    Camille catered my son's first birthday party. I was stressed enough about it; I couldn't worry about the food too! Camille provided everything I asked for. We had a variety of dips, hot roast beef sandwiches, MAC and cheese, meatballs, sausage and she even made cookies. She provided all the rolls, cheese, seasoning, chips, anything you could want or need. All of her food is from scratch and let me tell you, it's absolutely delicious!! Anytime I need ANYTHING catered I will be calling Camille!!!

    Homemade food all made from scratch that is undoubtably the best around. You can taste the difference and you will not over pay for this amazing food. The quality and flavor is amazing. I recommend this caterer for any celebration.
  • Jennifer Q. Oct 2, 2016
    Just like mom's with a twist with not hassle!
    Camille catered my daughter's graduation party and my 40th birthday party. She made tons of home made treats like meat balls and roast, and also made vegetarian options like meatless baked ziti and mac and cheese. Loads of salads and apps and delicious desserts. She set up and cleaned up and smiled the whole time. Very friendly and wants to make your event one to remember! All that plus very reasonable prices!
