Wedding and Event Catering
We can't express our gratitude for Chef Renee. We only had six weeks to plan our intimate wedding ceremony and formal reception. We presented her with a date and a vision and she did the rest. To say that she was wonderful from start to finish is a huge understatement. Her skillful plating, attention to detail and delicious food wowed our guests throughout the entire evening. The 5-Course meal with wine pairing and service overall were so impressive that we'll be using her every year for our anniversary.Feb 6, 2018Verified

EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!!! First and foremost I would like to thank Chef Renee for stepping in at the last minute to cater our event when our original plans changed at the last minute. With that being said we certainly never noticed that it was pulled together at the last minute because everything was PERFECT! I don't even know where to begin my praise... The service was up there with some of the best restaurants in the world that we've been to during our travels. OMGGG but the food!!! When I tell you that the food was life altering that is an understatement. The menu that Chef Renee and her team presented was as beautiful as it was delectable. Every bite transforms you to your happy place and you just need a moment to cherish the amazingness that is happening in your mouth. Luscious Bites is the perfect name for this company because every single morsel we tasted fit that description. Thank you just isn't enough but THANK YOU Chef Renee for taking my husband and I along with all of our guest on your spectacular culinary journey. PeggyOct 2, 2017Verified

The type of job: Personal Chef Special Occasion. Price: $1450 The review: Chef Renee was a pleasure to work with! We had her cater a special birthday dinner. She was always available to answer questions I had and her food is ABSOLUTELY delicious. She arrived at my venue, asked a few questions and did her job professionally and flawlessly with a special personal touch. The setup was elegant. I cannot rave enough about her service and food. I would definitely use her again for any catering needs I have in the future.Jun 3, 2018

We can't say enough good things about Chef Reneé and her team at Luscious Bites. They catered both our wedding for 100 at our home in Thousand Oaks and the brunch the following morning. They did a fabulously wonderful job. My family is of French heritage and filled with good cooks and foodies. So, the food part of the wedding was VERY important to us. We interviewed a dozen caterers, we went to a few tastings and even tried a several local restaurants in the initial planning stages. We were beginning to get worried that we would have to settle for less than we wanted until we met with Chef Reneé. Her stellar personality and her food at the tasting put both of our minds at ease and we knew that we had found the person who would cater our wedding to our standards. The food was all delicious and beautifully presented - crab stuffed Chilean Sea Bass, Blood Orange Glazed Pork tenderloin (to die for!), Saltimboca chicken, Saffron and Roasted Garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus with grilled red peppers and onions, arugula salad with heirloom baby beets and cherry tomatoes, Japanese cheesecake with 5-spice caramel, triple chocolate mousse cups and an apple tartlett. The brunch the next morning was equally wonderful as well, I mean stuffed French toast do I need to say more. All of the guests raved about the food! And, their wait staff was perfect. It couldn't have gone better! With all of the stresses that a wedding entails, Chef Reneé and her team definitely wasn't one of them. She was responsive, flexible with our many changes and positive and upbeat. She even handle the arrival unexpected guests at the brunch with grace and without missing a beat. They are everything you could ever want and we'll definitely use them again!!Feb 18, 2018

Best Super Bowl EVER and it wasn't because of the game. My husband and I decided to hire someone to cater our super bowl party this year since they keep getting bigger and bigger. Man are we glad that we did. Neither of us are slouches in the kitchen but damn did Chef Renee put us to shame. Can I just say Meatball Sliders yuummmmm The food was presented amazingly and tasted even better.Feb 13, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?No we don't have standard pricing because every event we do is completely personalized for the client's specific vision and budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?During our first communication with a new client we discuss what they have envisioned for their event. . . Decor, menu and type of service. After we finish discussing the above information we'll talk about the client's budget. When we have all the info we will compose a palate tantalizing menu and bring together the show-stopping decor.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from Culinary School then traveled for a year to hone my culinary skillset in a variety of cultures around the world. I continued my culinary mastery by also obtaining my Baking/Pastry and Restaurant Management degrees to fortify my desire to be well-rounded in my field. I have also acquired my ServSafe Manager and Training Professional as well as Dietary/Nutritionist Credentials to insure that every item prepared for any event is not only safe to consume but can also contain dietary restrictions as required. When I decided to start this business I wanted to make sure I surrounded myself with staff that was as passionate about AMAZING food and OUTSTANDING service. . . So that's exactly what I did. All of our Chefs are classically trained and believe that Superior service is the only service.
