Ethan and the team at Mad City Chefs far exceeded my expectations, and my expectations were high! The creativity and quality of the food, the presentation of the food and the service (pre, post and during) were fantastic. Our party was about 65 people following our daughter's graduation from UW Madison (May 2016). We are from Los Angeles so we had never hosted a party in Madison and didn't have any experience with caterers in the area. After a bit of research, we selected Mad City Chefs, but it was a 'cross our fingers' and hope for the best sort of guess. We ended up with more compliments on this party than we have ever had before, and we've used many caterers in the Los Angeles area over the years. Everyone had a great time and the food was the star of the show.

Kathy Wragg and her team were outstanding! She took the time to personally help us craft the menu for our wedding, and the food was amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better caterer or overall experience. She worked with all of our vendors to make sure everything went super smooth, and was an intregal part of making our big day a big success! Highly recommend!

    I wanted to have an amazing home-cooked meal for my girlfriend but I'm a terrible cook so I hired Chef Katie to come out. She asked some questions about what my girlfriend and I like and don't like and was so easy to work with. We started out with a cheese plate, then - probably my favorite item ever - these blue cheese & zucchini bites. After that, the main course was steak with bacon & peppers & blue cheese and a side of stuffed mushrooms. Finally, for dessert, Katie made this incredible exploding lava cake for desserts. OH! I almost forgot - she chose some great wines to pair with each course! I can't say what an amazing experience this was and I can't recommend Katie enough. I'm sorry I didn't do a good job of taking pictures- I was too in the moment.

He definitely out my husband, who hates having his picture taken, and I at ease and made the engagement session fun. We will continue to go to Tom for future pictures. We will be seeing him so for family pictures as well as maternity and new born pictures in the very near future!!

    I recently hired Juliane Mackaron to cater a luncheon that I was hosting for a group of prospective clients. The occasion presented some challenges with regards to specific menu requirements, particularly for one guest who was on a Vegan dietary regimen. After a brief consult with Juliane, an extensive and varied assortment of salads, entrees and desserts was recommended. This resulted in an impressive display of food options and choices that was thoroughly enjoyed by all of the attendees. Juliane's expertise, reliability and talents were instrumental in making the event a success. I received an enthusiastic response from my guests as to the variety, taste, quality and presentation of the meal fare offered. In short, the luncheon was a tremendous success. I would highly recommend that you consult Juliane for any of your catering needs. Lee Dorn Lee Dorn Jewelers, Madison, WI
