Julie did a great job! She was on time, professional, and the food was amazing! I had her cater a "day after brunch" for my wedding and ordered the continental breakfast. The hash brown casserole was delicious! I would definitely recommend Sunflower Chef Catering and will be using her again for catering in the future!

Everyone enjoyed the experience. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and we learned new techniques and also bonded with our co-workers. The food we made was wonderful! Chef Terri was very patient and helpful explaining everything as we went.

Chef Terence Haynes is wonderful! I've purchased both cakes and cakies from him and was quite happy with both. You do need to plan ahead so that he has the necessary time to create your masterpiece.

Local Yocals has easily become a family favorite. They are able to blend the perfect combination of incredibly fresh local flavors, and incredible chef talent. The menu as always has staples, but also has new flavors to try. If I have to choose a vendor at any event and Local Yocals is an option, we will choose them every single time. One thing I also appreciate is that they write where the food sources are from, it seems like everyone claims to be local, and this is the real deal. Well done.
