I hired Cool and Calm Catering to cater a women's lucheon for 20. It was an Italian themed event. The table settings were absolutely beautiful. The food was delicious and the overall presentation was delightful. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best) Iwould give this caterer a 10.Jun 13, 2016
catered outdoor party for 25, went off without a hitch ! Food was fabulous and made from scratch. Everyone bragged on the selection and taste. Would definitely use her again, even for smaller venues. Sweet, friendly girl who truly took all the planning and worry off me. Thanks again.May 12, 2016
Samantha did an excellent job catering for my friend's baby shower. Everyone was very impressed with the food presentation as well as the variety of flavors in both hot and cold items. If you are looking for a sweet treat, ask to try her berries cup with her amazingly rich whipped cream topping. Another popular item at the party was her caprazy bits drizzles in balsamic. I personally enjoy southern cooking and her mini stuffed potatoes with cheddar cheese, bacon and sour cream hit the spot! Samantha was very easy to work with and willing to be flexible due to the new baby coming earlier than expected. She made preparing for the shower so much easier and I am so thankful I used her.May 11, 2016

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Our owner, Samantha Rennels has been in the food and service industry for 16 years. She learned many things through this experience from food to drinks and customer service. As a mother of three she made it her mission to create healthy comfort foods that even the pickiest eaters would approve of. Her love of food and family helped her delve into the culinary world. Catering was a natural progression from being a personal meal prep cook. Her favorite thing is to teach others how to enjoy and prepare food they love that is also good for them. However, one of the most fun things about creating different catering menus for her is getting to give others the fun guilty pleasures that come with great party food.
