    Chef Al catered my sister's 60th birthday party and all of his food was absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend him for any event. Besides delicious food, his prices are reasonable.

    Alan catered for my wedding. We had a rustic theme and were looking for some good barbecue with southern sides. We had been to too many weddings with mediocre food, and wanted food that guests would truly enjoy. And that's just what happened. Every table I visited, people ranted and raved over the food. I was so glad that my guests were happy. I was impressed with the level of professionalism Alan exhibited throughout the entire process. He was careful to find out exactly what I wanted, and promptly responded in all correspondence prior to the event. He was truly a pleasure to work with and I recommend him to anyone looking for quality catering at a great price. !

    Abundance Catering is just that. Catering with Abundance. Al provides an abundant amount of taste, an abundant amount of food and an abundant amount personal service. Al recently catered a large event for my husband and I and it was exceptional from start to finish.

    My wife and I have had the great pleasure of attending several different catered meals supplied by Al Proteau. We have never had anything but exceptional food and service. We would highly recommend Al for his food and service. Such a great guy to work with and very reasonable as well.

    Al's cooking is great. He is very hospital and the food is always hot and good. It amazes me how this guy can make so much food and manage to keep it hot and ready. I have been to a few functions catered by Abundance Catering and was never disappointed. His pulled pork is the absolute best. Every year he has a Early Thanksgiving Feast and this year the food was wonderful. Even though it was a Thanksgiving Feast in addition to four turkeys Al also had some of his famous pulled pork. I would highly recommend Al and Abundance Custom Catering for any event you have planned. You rock Al.......

    Abundance Catering lives up to its name. When you work with Al you truly get abundance. His talent,his professionalism,the quality and amount of food is abundant. I have been a part of some good old country Bar-B-Que,to a sit down elegant 5 course dinner. Everything Al does is done in excellence. In addition to all that He does it all for a fair and reasonable price. I call upon Al for all occassions, and he comes through all the time.

    I have had the pleasure of experiencing Al's food many times, and I can tell you I have never been disappointed!


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing per person depends on the customers menu and style of service.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First we like to get to know the customer. A few questions about the event and type of food they are thing about serving the guests. Then we build the perfect menu for the event. Next comes the tasting at my home. From there the customer can deposit and we are on our way!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started cooking at the ripe old age of 5. I would help my grandfather flip pancakes and hamburgers at the French Club in Hartford CT. Its been a really fun trip ever since!!
What types of customers have you worked with?
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Stay away from the cookie cutter restaurants. Hire a professional with good reviews and a great reputation.
