This was a "small" party by Soraya's standards-- about 40 people -- Middle Eastern menu, cooking chicken and shrimp on the grill. The food was delicious!!!! Soraya and her team arrived around 2:30 for a party scheduled to begin at 5:00. Once they were here, I answered some questions for them, but other than that, they handled everything, and did so in a fabulous way: they were very attentive, but unobtrusive, so we were able to have a reunion and a farewell party among people who have been friends for more than 40 years. The evening was informal, but elegant. I loved it because 30 minutes before the guests arrive, I was sitting in a chair reading a murder mystery. I've never had that experience before, and it was FANTASTIC! Our guests loved also them! Thank you for introducing me to Soraya. Nancy D.
