Wedding and Event Catering

We got our event cancelled because of all of this Covid-19 stuff :( But, we are looking forward to trying her food, but in the mean time, she reimbursed me the amount I put down, and was super helpful and understanding during these trying times! Her professionalism alone will have me back to try again when we are up and running, and would recommend her to anyone! :)

Tania prepared an absolutely amazing dinner for 15 of us on a weekend getaway. She was quick to respond and worked with me to develop the menu. She handled everything day of so we could relax and enjoy!

We hired Tania to cook on our company retreat, and she was amazing. She communicated every step of the way, and worked around our budget. The food was delicious and we enjoyed having her and her assistant around for the evening!

Personal Chef (Ongoing)

Tania has been cooking for our European filmcrew for 10 weeks in a row. The crew (mainly men) are big eaters and traveled the world while working, so very familiar with all kinds of food. Tania is a very flexibel and amazing chef who cooks the nicest, fresh, organic and healthy food with local produce. She takes into account all the different diets and works with that to everyone's satisfaction. Even if there will be unannounced extra people for dinner there will always be enough for everyone to enjoy her meals. Her homemade ice-cream is really delicious. The variety of foods even after 20 days of cooking in a row is amazingly delicious and healthy. We not only respect and love her food, but also her personality and the people she works with. If you give a film crew a excellent meal a day they will go the length with you. That is what happens every day. I have asked the men if there was something they didn't like, but they couldn't think of something. Their favorites? Old fashion home cooked meal like Chicken fricassee and rice and beans... We are satisfied customers!

Wedding and Event Catering

Tania kept in good communication both before the event and during the event. She was professional, brought enough helpers, and made good in-the-moment decisions. She was sensitive to how her team engaged with our guests and how her presentation would be viewed. How do you describe smooth and professional? The food was as promised and several guests commented on how tasty the food was and were surprised I had ordered all vegetarian. There were plenty of sauces and the salads were attractive. The cheese choices were interesting and were displayed in an inviting manner...the crackers were interesting, too. And the thing that mattered most to me....there was plenty of guacamole!!
