Dani recently catered a pre-Thanksgiving lunch for our small business. She was a delight to work with and very accommodating to requests. The only mishap we came across was that she had written down the delivery time wrong. Luckily the food was prepared, so once I called to alert her, the food was here within the hour. Everyone raved about how delicious the food was - we had plenty of leftovers! Thanks, Dani!

Christine came to my home and prepared a dinner for my management team. The food was amazing and she was so professional. When we were all finished with the night, the kitchen was spotless and I did not have to do a thing! I would highly recommend her! She was easy to work with and the variety was outstanding!

Josh is helping me transform my family meals. I hired Josh to teach me how to streamline my processes and make cooking easier and more enjoyable. He is making a huge difference for us. We are going to work together for an extended period of time as he teaches me how to cook in a new way and we prepare and freeze many meals. I am so thankful to have his help. And, he is a delight to have around.

Instead of going to a restaurant for our annual holiday work party, we had an "interactive cooking dinner party" with Jessica as our chef/instructor and she did an awesome job. There were nine of us and we prepared the meal (appetizer, dinner and dessert) with her assistance at a private home -- the food and experience was great (lots of laughs)! Strongly recommend this type of party and Jessica!

Very pleased with the service, energy, and quality of the food that was prepared for our event. Chris and Rachel were great to work with, and everyone commented how the private dinner event for my wife's birthday was such a fun and unique touch. Couldn't have been happier!

We hired Daniel for my mom's 60th birthday dinner at her home. He cooked an amazing 4 course meal. Things that were good about working with Daniel: easy to communicate with leading up to the event, flexible (we had a last minute location change), detail oriented and well prepared, the menu he prepared was diverse (made both meat eaters and vegetarians happy) and the food was delicious - we especially recommend his artichoke dip, smoked salmon and cauliflower au gratin! We would definitely recommend working with Chef Daniel!

We had Chef Stiles come on-site at our corporate headquarters for a one-hour cooking demonstration sponsored by our Wellness Committee. Here is some of the feedback from employees: "I am very happy that I attended because it gave me some new ideas on how to increase the healthfulness of my family's meals." "Thanks for putting this together, very worthwhile and delicious." "Chef Stiles did a good job of presenting the fact that you can have delicious food and eat healthy at the same time. I vote for other classes just like this one."

Amanda catered a weekend "girls getaway" for myself and 4 other ladies. As we waited for everyone to arrive, we were served unlimited "Salty Dogs", a refreshing lemonade based cocktail, along with chips, homemade bean dip, and guacamole. Cocktails and appetizers were followed by a dinner of spicy pork stew served over southwestern waffles with the "fixins" guac, salsa and sour cream. On the next evening we were served a dinner of marinated and grilled salmon and pineapple with parmesan asparagus. The second night after dinner, we visited the local bars for drinks and when we returned, we had an "after the bar" snack of Nachos. This snack reused some of the same menu items from the previous days meals.(Smart planning!) Before leaving on Sunday, we were served a southwestern brunch with baked eggs and fresh fruit. There were desserts with the meals and the food was all delicious. We were sent on out way with leftovers too. The whole weekend was very relaxing and enjoyable with Mandy taking care of the food for us. Mandy is a very calm and organized planner and a wonderful cook and baker. Also, she is very easy to work with and dependable. I would recommend her services to anyone who has a party or get together coming up or even just for a night off of cooking. You will be able to relax and enjoy your guests and leave the food prep to her. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Amy catered the Christmas Party for my husband's dental office. She had great ideas including theme, activities and especially the food. She made appetizers as well as the meal of lobster tail with stuffed crab. Very professional & a joy to work with! I would definitely hire her again!

I hired Chef Renee Michele to teach my daughter how to cook before she went off to college. Besides cooking technique, she's been excellent at teaching how to create a shopping list and meal plan for the week, cooking healthy and trying new foods and recipes she's never tried before. Most importantly, Chef has been very patient and is a great teacher. I would highly recommend her!

I was having a 60th birthday party on July 2nd with approximately 100 expected guests. This was a full day celebration which started with 18 holes of golf, followed by a birthday bash at our home. Obviously, it would have been difficult to handle the food preparation while golfing. I hired The Hen & The Hog Catering Co. to handle all of the food. This was a huge weight off of my shoulders, since there were so many other details to take care of in preparation for such a large gathering. We discussed the menu, and then I left everything up to Ben and his crew. When we arrived back to the home (which is on the golf course), the food was all set up and ready to go. The menu included pulled pork sliders, potato salad, pasta salad, and fruit salad. I asked that the fruit salad be served in a sculpted watermelon bowl of some type. Much to my amazement, Ben outdid himself by sculpting a round watermelon into a golf ball. It was very fitting for this occasion! I wish that I would have taken pictures of this as it was truly amazing. With over 100 guests, I was just too busy greeting everyone. Several of my guests remarked that it was absolutely the best pulled pork that they have ever had. Ben is truly a master with the smoker! And the potato salad is out of this world. As wonderful as the food was, it was equally wonderful to sit back and be able to enjoy the day. Ben and his crew took care of getting everything set up--including the chafing dish, serving trays, and utensils. I would highly recommend the Hen & the Hog Catering Company for any catering need that you may have!

I have seen many events catered by Penny and her team, and am always impressed by how seamlessly and flawlessly they take place. Penny always comes more than prepared to make the event perfect, has a lot of creativity, great menu options, and very affordable prices. We've had her to banquets, buffets, anniversary parties, client events, birthday parties, barbecues, garden parties, and more. Hopefully one of these days we'll get to see her work her magic on a wedding, too!

We have hired Chef Marci on several occasions, for events ranging in style from formal dinners for 12 to family picnics for fifty. On every occasion, her food has been delicious, beautifully presented and creative. Her demeanor is friendly and professional, and she made the selection process simple. For the service she provides, her fees are completely reasonable. I would recommend her for any occasion that requires the services of a private chef.

When Julie cooks it's different than other cooks. Because when Julie cooks, she cooks from the heart. Her passion comes through in what she cooks and you can tell that she loves what she does. Whether it's something fancy and complicated, to something simple, she cooks with intention and purpose. I have eaten many a meals from her and one of the things I like best, is that she can make tasty food that is VERY good for you. Her presentation of it is awesome as well. I would recommend Julie to anyone who wants to taste truly tremendous food!
