Once you try D'Licious Treats they will become your favorite caterer! In addition to being an amazing chef owner/operator Delores Dowling is reliable, easy to communicate with, and will give you nothing but her best with a smile. Marie Allison

Chef Julie was hired to help our 4th grade Girl Scout troop earn their Simple Cooks badge. She taught the girls to make homemade ricotta gnocci with a creamy mushroom pesto, a baby kale & arugula salad with homemade viniagrette and cake pops for dessert. The girls were equally as interested in the climbing dome in the backyard as they were in learning to cook. Chef Julie was very patient with the girls and the food was fantastic. There was not a drop of gnocchi left, all of the at least tried the salad (I thought it was great) and of course the cake pops were a hit too! It was a learning experience for both of us. I would recommend Chef Julie!

My lovely Girlfriend brought Mariela in to cook for my 30th birthday and it could not have been better. She came over to our place, groceries and tools in hand, and put together one of the best meals we've had in a long long time. She also gladly cooked up pretty much everything she bought, so we've been eating leftovers all week. Don't hesitate to bring her in, you won't be disappointed.

Chef Paul Catering was exactly what I was looking for in a full service caterer. They took care of everything and the food was wonderful. They worked so quietly and neatly that I hardly knew they were in our home. I will definitely use them again and recommend them.

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!

    We have used Paula Evans for breakfast catering for groups ranging from 10 to 30. Her breakfast breads and muffins are consistent favorites. Her dessert bars are outstanding. Paula is very easy to work with; I would highly recommend Queen Bee Desserts.
