Polly Smith of Necessary Catering is polite, professional, friendly, and most importantly and incredible chef!! I can personally recommend several of her dishes as my all time favorites including the shrimp and grits, lobster bisque, and seafood pie. Her expert use of spices and seasonings combined with the freshest ingredients, sets her apart from the other caterers out there. Her cuisine is restaurant quality at a fraction of the cost. If you enjoy delicious food bursting with flavor, look no further than Polly Smith of Necessary Catering!!

I can not begin to express my gratitude for Lori. I hired her a year ago to do a gluten free wedding cake and cupcakes for our guests. She invited us to her home for a wonderful cake tasting and it just got better from there. She kept in touch and was helpful with ideas and suggestions whenever I needed her. The day of the wedding she showed up early with a cake and cupcakes that were way more than what I had expected. I was just floored by how amazing everything looked. She even baked us a one year anniversary cake to freeze. In summary: --my husband got a gluten free cake that 1) didn't make him sick, 2) was beautiful, and 3)tasted like regular cake --PLUS we had amazing cupcakes and a BONUS cake --Best of al, everything was cheaper than what I was looking to pay for JUST the wedding cake with 4 other bakers I spoke with -- Icing on the cake ~ Lori was absolutely wonderful to work with. I am very blessed that she was one of the vendors involved in my wedding. THANK YOU!

I have had the opportunity to eat some of the wonderful and delightful dishes that the chef prepared and I have to admit I enjoyed every bite. See, I am from the south and we are particular in our food being flavorful, and the food, I must say was on point. I highly recommend 2 Pieces of Bread.

Joan cooks 4 meals a week for 3 of us. She is very personable and flexible and is a great cook! Love the homecooked meals for our busy house. Overall, this is worth it financially because it costs less than when we were buying groceries and eating out more.

I attended a wedding that Chef Locke catered, and it was by far the best catering I ever tasted. From presentation to quantity to quality everything first rate! His services would be highly recommended.

I had to plan a sorority brunch two weeks before the event was planned to occur and Jerry was super easy to work with. He not only worked with my schedule on short notice, but he was willing to help make our budget work and gave us a great meal! I would definitely consider him for future events, and will recommend him to other people for their events big or small.

I use tried and true recipes. Very few of my ingredients are from a can or processed with the major exception being tomatoes since quality tomatoes are sometimes non-existent.
