Epic BBQ Wedding Reception The full menu and catering service of Just Hors D'Oeuvres goes way beyond the appetizers. With their vast selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts, its hard to imagine a combination which cannot more than please the most demanding of guests. Their grilled lamb, skirt steak and beef tenderloin exceeded high quality expectations and only unsolicited complements were received from many of the guests. The entire staff worked tirelessly for eight hours serving have passed Hors douerves, creating inventive mixed drinks, grilling and organizing the delicious buffet and desserts. The caterers are focused and busy with many events both large and small so just keep this in mind when trying to determine menu selection and coordinating with the various other vendors working your event

Rich came and cooked an Italian style meal for my birthday party at our home. We had over ten adults and ten kids and Rich catered really well towards everbodies wishes, appetizers vegetarian dishes, meat and pasta dishes... Terrific grilled pesto shrimp, home made hummus and dressings, lovely salad, super tender chicken etc etc. Kids loved the fresh baked cookies for desert and Rich really made sure everything was well presented during dinner and he left my kitchen spotless. Could not have been happier!

Whether you are having a small get together for a few or a large gathering, be rest assured that your event will be amazing! Chef Michel is extremely professional, respectful, and friendly! He catered 2 events for our family and we were very pleased with both. The first was a party of nearly 100 people celebrating our son’s college graduation and daughter’s high school graduation. Our second event was a last minute post Thanksgiving weekend family get together for 12-15 people. Everything from the planning, to taste testing, and delivery was on point. Aside from the food being beyond mouth watering delicious, he coordinated with outside vendors to provide everything we needed to make the graduation event beautiful. He also provided on site chefs and wait staff, all of which were professional and attentive to details. They were flexible in their assigned roles and remained past the scheduled time to attend to our guests and clean up. Our home was left as clean as it was when they arrived! Chef Michel prides himself on delivering the best quality and freshest foods possible. Other than a few items that required pre-prep (like marinating / slow cooking...definitely try the roast pork and roast chicken) everything was prepared (cut, fried, cooked, assembled etc) on site. This truly makes a difference when you’re serving items like empanadas or tostones with avocado and shrimp (both highly recommended). Chef Michel is very creative. Whether you choose something from his printed menus, have other items in mind, or even have a special recipe that you want him to prepare...HE CAN DO IT! An important point to make about his catering style is that he is so proud of his creations that he wants everyone to be able to taste everything that he prepares. If you choose an appetizer and you have 100 people, you are not going to get 1 or 2 pieces per person or be charged by the piece, like most caterers. He will make sure you have more than enough for everyone. The same applies to your main course. We had leftovers for ourselves, even after our guests took food home. With all of this said, I truly feel that his prices are fair and reasonable! I could write more and would be more than happy to speak to anyone who has any questions, but I’ll end with...make sure you try his homemade ice creams (our favorites were coconut and pineapple), flan, and especially the sangria!

They catered our son's graduation party. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was exceptional. We loved Cameron's carved carrot birds! They personally served the desserts to all our guests and cleared used plates from the tables and also made sure our home was spotless when then left. We look forward to Cameron and Christine catering our younger son's graduation party in two years.

Mitch gave a small group of best friends a cooking lesson. Though some of us have strong cooking skills, he tailored his instruction to each of us individually. For example, he complimented the more experienced on knife skills and spent time gently guiding the inexperienced. We all felt that we learned a great deal from his instruction as well as enjoyed a delicious home cooked meal that we all contributed to. He is a wealth of information, and spent a relaxing afternoon sharing tidbits that we all enjoyed. Highly recommend him for a cooking lesson and catering. Thanks Mitch for a great afternoon!

Kathy provided drop-off catering for 30 at my private residence following a graveside memorial service for my mother. We asked for the luncheon to be totally vegetarian. Kathy provided a great selection of sandwiches, plus a hot pasta and a hot quiche. Appetizers and a fine selection of desserts were also provided. Kathy was prompt, professional and checked in several times before the event to make sure our plans would be handled correctly. We were quite pleased with all aspects of Kathy's services, and would recommend her to others.

Chef Dan was very accommodating when our dinner party was delayed for our convenience. From appetizer to desert, everything prepared was delicious and timely but the Osso Buco was out of this world! I would highly recommend Dan to anyone interested in having a 5 star meal prepared for a special gathering!

Susan was fantastic from the start! She provided a great menu and a quote within my budget. I am a meeting planner and I work with caterers twice a year, all over the US. Few have offered to stay on site during meal service and that was a very special perk that Seaflour offers. I love the personal touch, and the attention to detail. I would work with her again anytime and wish I could clone her for other meeting locations!

What a great job by Joe and his catering team at Angelo's Market & catering. The food was out of this world and the presentation was as if I was on a Iron Chef episode. It could not have gone any better and I definitely am going to be using Joe again. Thanks again. Robert S.

Nate and his sous chef cooked a delicious 4 course meal for me and five of my friends for a bachelorette party. A salad of fresh, organic greens with pickled shallots, tomatoes and a homemade vinaigrette, a stuffed chicken appetizer, a delicious salmon with quinoa, wilted greens and an avocado cream aioli. I highly recommend Haven foods!

The Magic Spoon was referred to me by a friend of mine, and I have used their serves on several occasions. The food was wonderful with a great presentation. Everyone at the party raved how wonderful the food was. The steak was cooked perfectly and and the chicken was great too. You could also tell that the desserts where made from scratch. Also the staff made sure everything was taken care of so I could be with my guests. I would recommend The Magic Spoon for your next event

Gwen, or Mrs. G as my family calls her, was awesome and the food was delicious! We had vegetable lasagna with a healthy tossed salad (Gwen added all kinds of veggies and seed) garlic rolls and chocolate brownies for dessert. Biting in to the brownie was an exotic experience of velvety chocolate goodness! 100% recommend this lovely lady and her tasty dishes! PS, Gwen came to our house during a snow storm! When she says she is going to be there, no rain, sleet or snow could keep her away! Professional and kind hearted. Mrs. G, we totally LOVE you!

Jane's catering service was absolutely perfect. She showed up early for the party our family had, worked diligently throughout to upkeep platters, refill drinks, clean up empty items, and inform guests as to where they could find items (e.g. napkins, plastic ware, etc.). Most importantly, the logistics above would have traditionally been handled by a family member, which would strip them from being able to truly relax and enjoy the time with the other family members there. She handled this while everyone was able to partake and enjoy the party. The cost was reasonable and within our budget. Overall, she was great and when our family decides to do another party, she will be getting a call from us. Thank you Jane, very much!

Anepexperience catered my daughters’ graduation luau and made it a truly exquisite experience. The Hawaiian themed foods and appetizers were phenomenal. The presentation was so aesthetically pleasing that our guests were in awe. Chef Oneil and staff were very professional, knowledgeable, curteous and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I look forward to working with Anepexperience on every event I host in the future. They did such an amazing job. I couldn't have hired a better company. My girls are still thankful for how well the event turned out. I couldn't have done it without the help of Anexperience. Highly recommended.
