Kathleen was an excellent choice for our Christmas party in a large assembly room at the church. She willingly made a trip to the site weeks before the event to survey the kitchen and dining area and meet some of the organizers. Then, on the very rainy night of the party, she arrived at the time agreed upon, completed preparations begun at home in the church kitchen (leaving it probably in better condition than when she arrived). She had 3 assistants with her and besides cooking, they decorated and set up 7 buffet tables to serve the 115 guests. With 3 meat choices, potatoes, rice, dressing, noodles and multiple vegetables, 2 salads, homemade rolls and 4 desserts it was a sumptuous feast. All the food was well prepared, hot (if it should have been) and cold (as appropriate), attractively presented, and in more than adequate proportion. The serving dishes were kept filled during the buffet, and Kathleen moved around the room checking with seated guests to be sure all was right. At the close of the meal, when the group was enjoying musical entertainment, Kathleen and her staff unobtrusively cleared the tables and packaged remaining food. Since few in our group needed "take outs" Kathleen happily took leftovers to three needy families she was aware of. The price we agreed upon was VERY acceptable, the terms of payment easy, and Kathleen's willingness to adapt to our changing numbers and letting us actually decorate our own dining tables made everyone happy. WE would certainly recommend her services to anyone.
