Melissa helped me to make my husband's birthday party a hit. We did a sit-down dinner for twelve, and although I like to cook, I am overwhelmed with work and thought bringing in a professional would really make the experience more delicious and less stressful. Melissa kept me informed every step of the way, through menu planning and preparation to the days before and on the day of, she pulled it off and made it look easy (although I saw her and her staff work very hard). The food was phenomenal and beautifully presented, also perfect portioned. The wines were great and Melissa explained why each wine was paired with each particular course. She is a great hostess and can get a long with all types of people from shy to outgoing. Our guests were delighted with the food, the wine, and the experience of having a polished pro like Melissa to make everything lovely. Best of all, I wasn't a stress ball and everyone had a relaxing, enjoyable experience. I will certainly use Gettin' Saucy In The Kitchen again!
