It was an excellent experience! Wayfaring helped me with my birthday event and they cooked delicious food! We are international students from Asia, but their food and desserts were so good that everyone loves them so much! Their service is excellent too! They are really professional and serve food real quick! I will book them for my upcoming event for sure!

Chef Jessie was absolutely amazing! From the start, she was very responsive and incorporated our preferences. We only had a short timeframe between engaging with her and the day of the event, but she delivered beyond our expectations! I would absolutely hire her again for our next event!

Chef Jessie and her team catered our large family Thanksgiving dinner this year (there were 48 of us!). With such a large group, there are several of us with certain dietary preferences and restrictions. Chef Jessie was able to create a beautiful, traditional Thanksgiving feast for us incorporating those dietary guidelines. I am vegetarian with gluten and dairy intolerances. This is the first year in a long time that I was able to FILL MY PLATE with food! Everything was delicious! Many of the guests also complimented the food and service. She set a beautiful buffet table with the food and holiday themed decorations. Her team helped serve and bus the tables as people were finishing their meals. They left my kitchen almost spotless at the end of the evening. With Chef Jessie and her team I was able to enjoy my day, and my meal without having to worry about what was happening in the kitchen. She had it all under control! I will definitely call on Chef Jessie again when I need an event catered! Thank you, Chef Jessie! I'll be emailing you to get the recipe for the Apple Crisp dessert you made! I enjoyed eating the leftovers for several days!

Jessie provided an amazing array of appetizers for my husband’s 60th birthday. Everyone was raving about the food during the event and after. Her crew was wonderful and we couldn’t have been happier! I look forward to using her again in the future

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All of our menus are customized to match your event and theme. We will give you an estimated Quote and once we have all the details we can send you a final quote.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get an idea of the “experience” the client is looking for, from type of cuisine to theme to color scheme. Once I have an idea of what they are looking for, I make a customized menu that I think will make them and their guests happy and fit within their budget.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Always learning! A.S. and B.S. from The International Culinary Schools @ The Art Institutes of California-Los Angeles and Tennessee-Nashville, respectively.
