Catering for a baby shower for my son and daughter-in-law. The food was a hit. Chic Chef Catering did a great job. Chef Ravi even went as far as to provide trays to keep the food warm.
Inglenook has been our go to caterer for our large church functions for some time now. We continue to use them due to their warmth, professionalism, great food and great presentation. On this occasion I used Inglenook to cater my baby shower that was about 80 guests. Joe is so easy to work with and very knowledgeable, communication with him about the party was so easy and we he was able to tailor fit the menu for our needs. I've also had Inglenook cater my wedding which was about 350 people. At both events and our large church events Inglenook never disappoints. Our family always raves about the good food and great service. Highly recommended!! We love Inglenook.
Everything about working with Loretta and Just a Bite was terrific. She was very responsive to my inquiries and readily available beyond our initial contact. We worked together to come up with a special menu for my daughter's baby shower and many of the guests requested Just a Bite's contact information because everything was so tasty and beautifully presented. Loretta along with her helper, Nicole, were unobtrusive yet on top of all of our needs. Clean up was super! They even had packaging for leftovers. Would definitely recommend and use her again should the need arise. Thank you.
I used Katering by Kate for my best friend’s baby shower. Everyone absolutely loved the food and how beautifully everything was displayed. Katie consulted with me about the menu and all of her suggestions were so perfect! She was very professional and took a lot of stress off of me while planning the shower. Overall, she really made the event extra special. I highly recommend Katering by Kate for your next event!
Sorry about being a little late to review, but Carol is outstanding. We used Carol to prep and cook for my son and his wife's baby shower at our home. Carol came to the house the day before and did the prep work and cooked for 70+ people on the day of the shower. She was punctual, professional and efficient. We would recommend her and cannot wait for our next event to use her again.
He catered my baby shower 3 months ago and my guest are still talking about how good the food was. My guest are not easy to please people but they were really impressed. You must try him for yourself.
As a fellow event and catering professional, Feast and Imbibe did stellar job of amazing my guests. Recently, Heather and Chef D'Andre created an amazing menu and wine pairings for my baby shower, an intimate dinner for 12. As my guests walked in Heather was offering the champagne we decided to serve and Chef and his team were busy in the kitchen working on plating the passed apps, D'Andre's signature Chicken and Waffle bites! OMG!! Throughout the six course dinner the F& I team was the height of professionalism. Not to mention each course Chef created was mindbendingly delicious! My guests were both satisfied with portion sizes and some woke up the next day craving more! We dined on a beautiful deconstructed salad, smoked salmon, duck confit, olive oil poached salmon and my favorite...lamb belly!! For dessert Chef created a S'more Bomb that was "smoked" with vanilla bean and once cracked open revealed the gender of my baby!! My guests laughed and screamed with delight! Even adults love playing with their food!! I can't wait to use F&I again!!
Kristen has catered a few parties for me, including a baby shower and two corporate events. Her food is spectacular as well as beautifully presented. She also has excellent cocktails recipes and ideas. After every event, my guests always request her contact information because they are so blown away by her cooking skills and her presentation. Her staff is responsive and very hard-working. I will definitely use her for all of my events going forward and would highly recommend her to others.
Thank you Yannis catering for helping me with the bridal shower. The Chicken Marsala was excellent. Everyone was asking where I got the food. THe Paste Carbonara was great too. Good prompt service at reasonable prices!!!!
When we want authentic Mexican food, we head to Sal Y Limon. Not only is the food amazing, but the staff is very welcoming. When my children come in from out of town, this is their first choice of dining. We also had them cater my daughter's bridal shower and the guests loved the food.
Jane is a wonderful cook. I've used Jane services just recently for my baby shower and I must say the food was excellent. Jane is very professional and will give you quality service as if you were dining in an upscale restaurant. I would always use her services and continue to recommend her to potential clients.
Easily the best photographer I have had the pleasure to come across. Steve captured the most touching moments of my baby shower day. Ones I didn't think anyone could take or think of. The pictures he took were absolutely beautiful/professional. He's got a great eye and great composition skills. My daughter is going to love all the details in the photo in the future. We've worked with other photographers in the past and so far Steve is by far the best. Without a doubt we will be referring him to other friends and will definitely use him again for our family pictures.
Chef Katie delighted us with a Thai-style dinner for my birthday! With a new baby, I wanted to celebrate with friends and good food but didn't want to leave the comfort of my home or my 11-week-old daughter. Enter Katie for a perfect solution! Thanks for everything- we were so delighted with the hands-on demos, delicious food and lack of cleanup! She was amendable to all ideas I had and brought some additional novel ones to the table.
The food was exceptional. I hired them to cater my baby shower. Prior to the event the owner had several calls to review: the menu, my expectations and to answer questions. On the day of the event setup was flawless. My guests walked into a beautiful setup of appetitizers. The food was fresh, vibrant and delicious. The main course was multi faceted and catered to the dietary restrictions of some of my guests. Dessert was a simple showstopper. Vanilla bean cupcakes with fruit was a perfect end to a perfect event.
Several years ago, the hostesses of a baby shower for my daughter (at my suggestion) hired Gabrielle as the caterer. Everyone agreed that the food was delicious, but it almost didn't get eaten because so much attention was paid to presentation that nobody wanted to be the first one to "dig in" to any of the platters or bowls. When we had taken all the photos we wanted, we asked the mom-to-be to lead the way in dismantling Gabrielle's masterpieces. Everything tasted at least as scrumptious as it looked.
I cannot recommend Jennifer and Amour de Cuisine highly enough! My bridesmaids, Aunt and Mom hired Jennifer to cater my bridal shower. The shower had a tea party theme for which Jennifer created the most beautiful tea sandwiches and petite hor'derves. She also made dips and dessert options that my guests raved about. As much as every bite was pure bliss, the meticulous attention to the detail of presentation was a feast for the eyes! I still hear more about the food at my bridal shower more than I do about the food at my wedding! I have worked with other caterers and chefs, but in comparison Jennifer is an artist at her craft. Not only is she a professional and punctual chef, but her party planning skills are an added bonus. When I walked into the dining room where the food was set up for my shower, I felt like I had traveled to a vintage French tea party, and Jennifer set it all up to look that way. She truly set the mood for a perfect pre-wedding celebration. I can't wait to use her again for the next celebration that I host! Thank you, Jennifer, for putting so much elegance, heart, and love into the your work and for making my bridal shower so memorable and special!
Tomboy & Co catered a baby shower for 35 guests and it was outstanding! It was very reasonably priced but high quality and inventive. The guests were raving about it even days later. Jody was very helpful in planning the menu and responsive to all my questions. I would highly recommend them for any of your catering needs.
Look no further for the utmost professionalism and the best quality food/catering! I cannot rave enough about Michael! I hosted my baby shower at my townhouse in Lincoln Park. Most of my family is on the east coast, so the guest list was only about 20 people. I knew I didn't want myself or another guest to have to worry about cooking and a few of my guests have specific dietary restrictions so I wasn't comfortable ordering from a restaurant. One of my friends works at the law firm where Michael is the chef and passed along his information, letting me know he also caters these types of private events. Plus, she kept RAVING about how awesome his food is. Michael was so refreshing to work with from start to finish. He was responsive, detail oriented, and extremely professional (not to mention so friendly!) We had an initial phone meeting to discuss menu ideas, dietary restrictions, and theming. He got back to me with a preliminary menu (including a full ingredient list) and questions regarding what my kitchen was capable of (how big my oven is, how many burners I have, etc.) As I said, very detail oriented. He also came up with thoughtful, creative ideas for my friend's dietary restrictions so they could enjoy the "fun" treats, too! One of my favorite gluten free treats were his dark chocolate coconut tarts- totally delicious. The day of the shower he arrived right on time with everything we discussed for the final menu. He was professional and completely unobtrusive. He ensured all of the food was the correct temperature when served. He even came prepared with ingredient cards to put out with the food. Everything was DELICIOUS. But I think the best part of hiring Michael was that he left my kitchen SPOTLESS! I swear it was cleaner than when he started. Seriously, look no further for in-home catering. I already know who will do Baby Rose's first birthday party. I swear, Michael is Chicago's best kept secret.
Jennifer is a top notch chef! She created a beautiful bridal high tea for me when I was getting married in May of 2007. The food was amazing and everyone kept telling me how good everything was! Fast forward to this past August 2013, Jennifer made the most beautiful mini bundt cake assortment for my baby shower! Chocolate turtle, lemon and rum raisin cakes just to name a few. They were gone in no timeand everyone was RAVING about how delicious they were. Would highly recommend Jennifer as part of your party planning! She has years of expertise and it shows!
