It is my pleasure to offer a review of Sylvia's catering, culinary expertise and work ethic. I have enjoyed years of her cooking as she and I were coworkers. In addtion she has catered a couple parties for our family. Sylvia is classically trained so she may provide any food item or method requested. She is also of course very proficient in kitchen safety, equipment, hygiene, prep, timing and temperature requirements. Now for food! Sylvia has a special sense for pairing and encorporating big flavors and complimentary textures. Whether is is fried chicken and mashed potatoes you are after or exotic flavors of the Far East and Carribean Islands, she can provide. Personally I prefer the latter and the spices and flavors Sylvia creates are completely delicious. Some examples include her Chana Alu (curry chick pea and potato), chilie spiced salsas and chutneys, and tangy tomato marinaras. Our family perferes the Caribbean flavors and a recent menu included jerk spiced chicken (and tofu), coconut prawn, chana alu, spicy mango chutney, yougart/ dill chutney, green salad and cilantro/ lime rice. Sylvia graces any atmoshere with exuberance, style, positivity and professionalism. Highly recommened!
