Worked really fast and considered a lot of food allergies that are going to require more prep work to not cross contaminate work surfaces and kitchen equipment.Jul 18, 2017
Gordon did a fantastic first class catering job..I didn't have to worry about as thing.Gordon took care of everything...my family loved his brunch...I would absolutely use him again...Jul 1, 2016Verified
I am the Executive Assistant for a school and I hired Gordon and his son to handle the food and dessert for our staff Christmas Party. Let me just say that EVERYTHING exceeded my expectations. Everyone raved about the food - to say it was delicious doesn't even do it justice. The presentation of the food alone blew us away! Generous portion sizes - enough for twice through the buffet line. Gordon and his son were professional, handling every tiny detail. We plan on booking them for future school staff events. I may even hire him personally for entertaining at my home! I would recommend him again and again to everyone!Dec 20, 2016Verified
I never had to worry about a thing and the food is absolutely amazing, you can tell a lot of pride and joy goes into the food! The setup was fabulous and the service was top notch. I can't say enough great things about Gordon!!!Aug 11, 2016Verified
Gordon did a fabulous job! He created the menu within budget - it was creative, delicious and beautifully presented. All the details were tended to and we could not have been more pleased. Thank you Gordon for making our party a huge success and so carefree for us. We will be repeat customers for sure.May 16, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?There are two types of catering. 1. The necessary annoyance to feed the people because it's expected, even though you don't know them and don't want to spend any more money than absolutely necessary. 2. The opportunity to nurture and feed your guests with the decision to make the food an integral part of the experience and memory. Please do not request a bid if you are looking for the cheapest way to feed a crowd. Thats not what we do. We offer the best VALUE for your dollar! Not the cheapest. We do Personal Custom Catering. We are an independant Idaho operation, not a corporation chain store. We cook with your health in mind by providing low fat, low cal, gluten free and organic when possible. I hate sticking to menus and then hoping the ingredients are to be found. I prefer to find the best and brightest ingredients and then make a menu out of them. Healthy, clean, creative food. Thats what Gordon's Catering is all about. Please dont inquire if you are low-balling your bids. Due to higher food and labor costs we cannot consider catering any event for less than $15 per person. If you want a wedding for $10 per person don't bother us. We are busy nurturing caring clients. We are not the cheapest. But we are the best. We have to pay to give you a bid so if your bargain shopping then save us the time. Call goodwood or some other crappy corporate chain.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to talk them through it. It helps to define expectations.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Graduate of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco California. 30 years in the industry.
