I liked everything about Marylyn and her team of professionals-- chef and waitstaff included. No detail was left out of the planning, and the food was excellent. I highly recommend this company!

Over the years, Rich has catered many events for me. From a chefs birthday party for 13 year old girls to a fully catered holiday dinner party. Every detail was perfection and the food was amazing!

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!

The most wonderful Christmas dinner for a family gathering of ten plus two children. Chef Laura from Sunflowers catering is an amazing culinary master. She dropped off our meal complete with heating instructions and guidelines for time and temperatures. If you are lucky enough to hire her you will not be disappointed ever!!!......we are so looking forward to her preparing a New year's eve sit down dinner for twelve this year in our home. As far as my husband and I are concerned, as well as our family, this chef is not to be missed.

I had a pool party bbq for my adult sons birthday party. There were about 50 people with many children. Although there were a few glitches the party was a success. Her staff were wonderful, two great cooks and a friendly bartender who kept everyone well fed and happy!

We were so happy to have chosen Chef Anne to cater our Mom's 90th Birthday Party. From my first conversation with her to follow up email she was helpful professional and provided first rate service. Chef Anne made recommendations as well as guided me thru selecting Glueten Free etc type dietary concerns. I felt like Ive known her for years as she is so easy to work with, now I have a friend in the catering business. We had many positive comments how delicious everything was and I would recommend her and will be happy to call her again.

FANTASTIC! I hired Cultivated Tastes to cater my birthday party for approximately 20 people at my house and both Chef Gerry and Kendall exceeded our expectations in every way! I started planning the event with Cultivated Tastes a few months prior to the event and they were very helpful with food suggestions and other ideas to make sure this party was going to be a success - and it was!! Chef Gerry and Kendall were very professional and friendly. The quality of food and service was definitely 5 STAR!! We decided on having passed hors d'oeuvres and stationed platters. The food was beyond delicious and all my guests and I raved about every dish!! I absolutely loved having Chef Gerry and Kendall cater my party and I will definitely be hiring them again. Thank you Cultivated Tastes!!!

Chef Mark was wonderful throughout the planning process and made the day of the party a breeze! He was thoughtful in his menu construction, satisfying the picky birthday boy with ease. We loved all of the food but in particular, the jerk chicken and pulled pork won universal praise from the guests. On the day of, Mark and his assistant arrived ontime, worked around our last minute changes to the setup schedule and continued to be flexible and professional throughout the party. They also treated the kitchen and house like they were their own, cleaning as they went and leaving it tidy after the party. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Chef Mark to friends and family!

I am currently working with Susan who will be catering a dinner reception for my wedding this June. I was referred to Susan by a coworker who had previously work with her and raved about how great her food is. I am so happy to have found her, she is very responsive and willing to listen to my concerns. I highly recommend Susan!

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.
