River Cat Gourmet is absolutely marvelous.
River Cat Gourmet has catered several events for my company. My experience with River Cat Gourmet was absolutely marvelous. Chef Robin is simply great to work with as he is extremely easy to get along with. He makes it a point to come out and meet with me personally.
What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Due to the ever changing price of food items and the wide variety of menu choices as well as the various services we provide, it can be challenging to give someone a quote with out some details other than the number of guests.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We generally prefer talking on the phone to understand our client's needs, budget and vision for the event or service they are inquiring about. With that information Chef Robin plans a menu that fits all the criteria. Then Chef Robin proceeds to meet with the client to provide an overview of the menu and possible tasting which usually seals the deal.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Six years ago, after being encouraged by his family and inspired by his passion for food and flavor, which is a part of his DNA from growing up in the South and having family ties in and around New Orleans, Chef Robin left the Information Technology field of 19 years to start a mobile food business serving Cajun/Creole cuisine at local events that were being held on the Treasure Coast of Florida.
What types of customers have you worked with?
As a personal chef & catering service, we work with many types of clients.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Your not just hiring a personal chef or caterer, your selecting someone that will invest his or her time in creating a lasting memory, wether they are cooking meals for you on a weekly basis in your home, or catering an event or special occasion.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
If your looking for a Personal Chef to provide meal delivery services, you need to make sure that the PC has a licensed and inspected commercial kitchen due to the fact that most state's health departments require it, especially the State of Florida.
