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

Couldn't have asked for better help at a small dinner party last night. He jumped in to take over the prep work when I was scrambling to finish getting ready for our guests, was a pro behind the bar, set up a great buffet dinner, added little extra touches to jazz up dessert, and then left a clean kitchen behind. Highly recommend Rich and plan to use him again in the future!

Chef Michel worked with us to design a "Latin Flair" menu that incorporated traditional selections with unique flavors and pairings. The steak fajitas were delicious, and a favorite for the crowd. We also thoroughly enjoyed the cake, customized with our Company colors/theme. Festive Food Caterers provided the full set-up (buffet servers, warmers, serving utensils, even disposable dinnerware for the diners) and was present to explain what was in a particular dish or replenish servers when empty. From planning all the way to teardown, Chef Michel made our corporate holiday party a delight to plan.

Chef Plum hosted a fabulous dinner party at our home in March 2015 for my wife’s 30th birthday! From the very beginning of the process, Chef Plum was extremely engaged and easy to work with - it started with the menu planning, continued through to the logistics for the dinner, and didn’t end until Chef Plum and team departed after dessert (when our kitchen was even cleaner than when he arrived!)! The food was, literally, to die for! Local, in season, and prepared to perfection – we could not have asked for anything more! Chef Plum – you outdid yourself! We consider ourselves foodies, and we could not have been more impressed with the food Chef Plum and his team put out. Moreover, Chef was extremely gracious and presented each course to the party himself, along with background on his inspiration for the dish. I continue to be in shock at how amazing Chef Plum and his team were! If you are reading this review and even remotely considering hiring Chef Plum for an event… my unequivocal recommendation is to do it – it will be unbelievable, and you will be talking about it for a long time to come! We can’t wait to find another occasion to work with Chef Plum again!

Anne and her assistant made my backyard picnic beyond perfect! Her food was deliciously prepared and artfully presented. I could not have made a better choice when I chose The First Bite catering. I was truly a guest at my own event.

Kathy's group catered a buffet dinner for my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. She was very responsive & cooperative with our plan. Her assistants were top notch! Everyone enjoyed the food; chix parm was excellent. Kathy worked within our budget and delivered excellent value. Her assistant took over as our DJ at the last minute and was great. Would recommend her services. Thank you.

Three Men and A Grill catered my family barbecue over this past month. Their service was outstanding. Very professional and of course the food was amazing. They worked with us every step of the way to make a menu we'd love.

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.

About

My name is Daniel Geraghty, chef and owner of Geraghty's Catering. I am a full-service caterer and personal chef. I am a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Our customer service and from-scratch cooking, separates us from our competitors. We use organic, all-natural foods, and farmer's markets as much as possible. Because we cook from scratch, we are able to customize menus for catering events as well as personal chef clients. Many of our personal chef clients have the need for specific diets that are confusing for the home cook to create. That is where we shine. I create beautiful, tasty, and healthy meals for diabetes, fibromyalgia, celiac, some forms of cancer, and for clients going through lengthy cleanses.

About

My service is a unique soul food catering business. We also provide themed catering ex Birthday Parties, Weddings .Unlike other restaurants we want you to feel like part of the Demita Jo Family Catering Our goal is to create great food and make you feel like you've sat right at home with a loving warm hearted family. Soul food restaurants in the north, so I'm here to mesh gap between the north and the south. Which is the biggest aspect I am hoping will have us standing out the most.
