Introduction: Hi! My name is Carole. Thank you for coming to our profile page for Nosh Events! I personally have 22 years of professional restaurant and catering experience and I have an amazing team that has the same drive and passion for all things food. I have worked at 4 and 5 star top regarded restaurants in metro Detroit and have vast experience with various types of cuisines. The biggest thing that sets Nosh apart from any other caterer is that we prefer to do restaurant style food - "a la minute" scratch cooking is what we call it! Our food is locally sourced as much as possible (difficult in the winter, right?) and prepared with the freshest, highest quality ingredients. We make everything right before it is served to you and your guests, creating an unparalleled dining experience. We truly take pride in exceeding your expectations and wowing your guests! If you're looking for a culinary experience with exceptional attention to detail, look no further.

Carole is a wonderful chef! She gave my parents a wonderful home-cooked meal (filet mignon) as a belated Christmas present. My parents raved about her cooking and said that she was a wonderful to have in the house and to talk to during the whole process. They had leftovers for days! I should also mention that Carol is super responsive and made it a breeze to arrange everything.

Details: Date night • 2 guests • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • American - formal • Italian • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Asian • Indian • Gluten free or celiac • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Carole is amazing and so easy to work with. She has catered many events such as showers, rehearsal dinner, holiday dinners and small gatherings for me. She has the best menu ideas. Her food is delicious and the presentation is out of this world. My friends and family look forward to any event when Carole is involved.

    When planning your event and looking to hire a catering professional, the more information we have about you and your vision the better!

That will help eliminate OPC fee's. *Are you working with a budget? Etc etc!
