I don't even know where to begin! Jose is an amazing caterer and I am so happy we hired him for our wedding this past Friday. When we were first tasting caterers food they all seemed metiocre but Joses was amazing! We hired him on the spot! Not to mention he was the most reasonable price! Then everyone was making me nervous saying that catered food is never as good when they have too cool it in large quantities (we had 180 people). When we got to the reception everyone was already eating appetizers and happy. When Jose spotted my husband and I he came up to us and told us he had made us each an appetizer plate and if we wanted it. Then he came up to me to make sure I wanted dinner served when I had originally asked. I did and he brought us the first 2 plates. The food was amazing! Just as good as I remember! Everyone was so pleased and kept talking about how the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding! That was exactly what I wanted! His bartender was amazing and all his staff was so friendly. The setup looked nice and professional. The drinks he brought were great and everyone was talking about how great the mint water was! Then I ordered cheeseburger sliders and French fries to be served late night and they were amazing! He even brought wings and everyone was so excited! They went fast and by the time I got over there everything was gone. Jose told me let me get your plates and pulled out two foil covered plates. He always thought of us first and without him I wouldn't have eaten. All day everything had hiccups and my rentals were late, everything was slightly wrong except Jose! He really came through and went above and beyond. I will definitely hire him again for any events and recommend him to the fullest!

Jessica is truly awesome, if you really want your wedding to be awesome, hire Jessica. Imagine Winston Wolf from Pulp Fiction as a blonde and more approachable. She gets things done and really solves problems sometimes even before you've thought of them. She is always on time, and is always aware of the time and what should be happening at any given moment with the wedding party and vendors. I simply can't imagine how our day would've went without Jessica quarterbacking the event. Due to ours and her schedule we didn't get to meet face to face until the day before our wedding for rehearsal. This had us a little uneasy but it really did not matter as immediately upon meeting her we knew she was the right person. Her professionalism, personality, and experience went to work as soon as she stepped out of her car. She asked us how we were getting on with preparations and if we needed any last minute items and asked about any concerns. She listened to everything we said and actually started solving our concerns right away. I had a worry about the parking situation for the wedding as we didn't want any cars in photos but we had to keep the gates open. She managed to get a sign made to let the guest and cab drivers know where to park or drop guests off, and it really worked well. When she met the wedding party she gauged what type of crowd we were and made sure everyone felt comfortable to ask her for anything, even let my groomsmen know if we run out of pre gaming beers she'd be happy to make the run to the store. On the big day she went to work immediately, she did everything we asked of her and more! She ensured my wife and I and our parents were fed first and our cups were always, always full. I always thought the coordinator was suppose to pull the strings and be invisible on the day. I thought this because of weddings I've recently attended as a guest. However Jessica was always there and available, everyone in our wedding party and even guests felt like they could approach her and ask her anything. I truly preferred her presence and not hidden away behind the scenes. She genuinely looked happy to be there and it's obvious she loves her work. When you're planning a wedding everyone is quick to tell you what you will need and won't need and what you can get away with on the cheap. A day of coordinator should not be on that list. You can prepare and prepare but something unexpected comes up the day of or you forget to do something and you won't have the time or mental energy to deal with it properly yourself. This is where Jessica's awesomeness is invaluable. She will take care of all the loose ends and make certain the schedule runs smoothly, so you can actually enjoy your day and savour the experience of getting married!

We hired Jeff and his staff for our wedding weekend. Friday we had a "meet and greet" BBQ and Saturday Jeff provided the food for our buffet style taco bar. We live in San Diego so we were really in the dark about Palm Springs area caterers. The food and the presentation was outstanding. We gave Jeff ideas for what we wanted and he took control and delivered all of it and more. He is a pleasure to work with and makes every effort to ensure the food is excellent and that everything runs smoothly (even when it's not his responsibility). Jeff helped with many components of our weekend, including putting us in touch with a reliable party rental business and culinary artist for the wedding cake. We are eternally grateful for Jeff and the Creating Catering staff for being part of our special weekend.

I hired Firstclass Catering for a party at a private residence on Friday night. Michael and his staff were wonderful. The food was outstanding. All of our guests were very complimentary of the food and service. Frank the bartender kept everyone's drink full. From the setup to the teardown the entire evening was just perfect. The biggest compliment I can offer was from the owner of the home. After all the guests had left they looked around the house and stated "did we have a party here tonight?" "You would never know it." I highly recommend FirstClassCatering for your event. Well done.

I'd like to take a moment to thank the Experience Event Inc. for all of their hard work at my son's 8th birthday party. I was blown away with the Sesame Street themed party. Also, how professional, innovative and open the owner's are. I felt confident with allowing them to take my idea's and bring them to a whole new level. I left a more detailed review with pictures on their Facebook page, but I thought it maybe helpful to share my experience here. I will be using their business in the near future.

Chef Mark is an amazing chef! He was very professional. I had a small dinner party with friends. I wasn’t sure what I wanted. Since I am on a low carb diet. After speaking with him he created a Menu to fit my diet restrict but also carter to my friends non restricted diet. Appetizer was fried calamari with sweet and sour sauce. The salad was a fresh Ahi Tuna salad. The entree was mouth watering pan seared Scallops with lemongrass carrot ginger purée. Lastly was dessert which I could only have a taste of my friends apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and homemade salted caramel. It was to hard to resist. Chef Mark made fresh berries with he’s own whipping cream!

I love Papa Joe's. The owners are super friendly. My family are regulars and they always recognize us when we come in. Their prices are great and their pizza is always good and fast. The interior of the restaurant could use some updating, but this is a local family-owned place that does what they can with what they have. Try their party-sized pizza for your next party. It feeds many hungry teenagers.

About

I am just starting out, as far as going into others' homes to help them with cooking. I felt this was a way to make them feel at home, and make it much easier to teach them the basics of cooking. I do everything from desserts to some French food; and catering is a favourite. Here at Dee's, we know not everyone is a born cook/chef, but we all can learn the basics and have fun making many different types of food and drinks. We just have fun, as we learn together, you will get a great deal out of cooking with Dee (Donna). I love people and cooking, so here at my place, together we shall learn to cook and enjoy life. Make that man or woman in your life never want to leave nor get enough.
