Jesse is an amazing chef!
Kevin did an outstanding job for me. He went above and beyond what I expected from him in the most professional, helpful and caring manner possible! I hired him to empty my parent's home and ready it for sale. It took numerous dumpsters and days of hard work. Kevin kept me apprised of his progress with calls and pictures. He met me halfway for personal meetings to save me miles and time. He appreciated the historical aspects of the 1920 Tudor home and left it spotless, even the yard and porch. I consider myself extremely lucky to have hired such a conscientious gentleman to take on this project. You will be pleased with his efforts and ethics.
Because I married into a Cajun family, I was asked to be a taste-tester for Jambalaya that Prairieland Catering had prepared for a wedding. This dish was incredibly good. It had a great blend of fresh shrimp and different meats, the true Cajun style in which this dish is served. I was impressed at the level of quality of this dish and would highly recommend Prairieland Catering.
We used Nelson's for our wedding reception this past September. I cannot express how amazing of a job they did. From the beginning, they were easy to work with, and were eager to help make my reception what I had always wanted it to be. All of my guests were impressed with the layout, and the helpfulness of the staff Nelson's sent. After the reception, I kept getting compliments on how delicious the food was! They also did seat covers, which transformed my reception hall! The experience I had with them was outstanding, and have already given their information to other people I know that are looking for caterers!!
The food was beautiful and delicious. Service was excellent and on budget.
Raquel came out to work our wedding reception/tailgate and she did a wonderful job! Everyone commented on how nice she was. She even donated our extra food to a local charity to make sure it didn't go to waste.
Scott is a very talented chef who's unique flavor combinations and service are impeccable
It wasn't about mechanics; it was about a feeling, wanting to give someone something, which in turn was really gratifying. That really resonated for me.
I love to cook, and I love to bake. Cooking and baking are a passion of mine, and I am good at it.
