Had labels for all the food so everyone knew what they were eating. We had gluten free, vegan and keto diets to work with. Food was so delicious. This was for a causal wedding with family.

Katie at Balsamic Mercy Catering is more than a fantastic chef; she’s also extraordinary human being. Yes, the food is delicious, incredibly healthy and prepared with great care. Having worked with Katie for years, she’s become part of our family…thoughtful, compassionate, open hearted. In short, Katie is a treasure!! Greg Z

Katie and crew are the best caterers we have ever had. Not only is the food AMAZING but it is on time and the presentation is gorgeous. They do a great job in preparing healthy food for all tastes and preferences. We have a very large gathering every year, with many different dietary needs, and everyone just raves about the food. I can't recommend them enough.

Fresh, live, vibrant food, so lovingly prepared, and beautifully served. Food as art, as spirit, as nurturing body, mind and soul. Delicious flavors from all over the world, and the amazing ability to take care of special dietary needs in the midst of a large group with attention to detail and personal caring. Amazing falls short of describing working with Katie. Her personal passion for being of service in this way in the world can be tasted in every bite, and experienced in all the details. We have worked with her catering our 5 to 10 day workshops several times a year for many years. Our staff and participants are so well cared for, it adds a fantastic dimension to what we do. TEN stars! Jan K. Nine Gates

An addicted a workshop Junkie I attend probably 60-75 days per year at catered workshops. Balsamic Mercy is hands down the finest food going. It is beautifully made, wonderful to taste, presented lovingly with a smile and healthy to eat. There is an amazing variety of regional foods and Katie does an amazing job of providing for numerous eating preferences or requirements. i.e. omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, dairy free, gluten free, garlic free and makes it all amazing to savor and enjoy. Better than Grandma's cooking.
