About

Rachel was awesome and her food was delicious. She was able to make a trip out to a remote lake house in the mountains and make a surprise 4 course meal for my fiancee and family. She used fresh, healthy, and organic ingredients and made great food that everyone enjoyed. I appreciated the set up and clean up too! It allowed us to really enjoy the celebration. I'd gladly hire Rachel as a personal chef for a future event.

About

My experience with Fresh As Can Bee Catering was AMAZING! They went above, beyond, and further to make the food for my wedding so spectacular. I truly could not be any happier with the result and it was all for a very reasonable price! To start, here is a little backstory. My now-husband accepted a job across the country six month before our wedding. Because all of our family is still in or around western NC, we determined that it would be best to continue the plan of having our wedding there instead of all the way across the US. That means I had to do most of the planning from a few thousand miles away. Having no idea what I was doing and being on a pretty tight budget, I got incredibly frustrated with most of the catering options I found, all of which wanted me to spend upwards of $5,000 for 100 people. Than I came across Thumbtack. I figured I may as well give it a shot, posted my request, and Kim responded within an hour with a price that was, not only significantly lower than every other option I'd found, but low enough to be within my budget. When I responded to her email, she called me the very next day. Her prompt response and cheerful personality sealed the deal so I decided then to use her and am I glad I did because SHE IS AMAZING! She was extraordinarily understanding and accommodating, going as far as to set up a tasting based solely around the trip I made back home for my dress fitting. She was attentive, organized, and dedicated every step of the way, and continually made sure that everything was exactly the way I wanted it. She really seems to genuinely care about her brides and about doing her best to make her part in their special days to be as perfect as possible. She contacted me multiple times to verify everything from which foods, to the amounts of each food, to whether or not I had utensils and ice. Most importantly, however, is that the food was absolutely amazing. I chose heavy hors d'oeuvres for my afternoon wedding, which included stuffed mushrooms, meatballs, pimento cheese with pita wedges, brushetta, and spring rolls, among other things. She did not by any means skimp on the portions and every single thing was delicious. I did not hear a single complaint, but instead only tons of great reviews from pretty much everyone. My father took the leftover pimento cheese with him to share with his fellow plant workers, thinking it would be a good snack for a day or two and it was gone in a few hours, with his co-workers asking for Kim's name. As an added bonus, Kim works with an equally fabulous pastry chef who created for me an absolutely gorgeous cupcake tower and cutting cake. I was able to have three different cupcake flavors and she decorated the stand and the table absolutely beautifully. The cupcakes--especially her real, homemade buttercream icing--were delicious. I would recommend Fresh As Can Bee to anyone and everyone for any catering needs. Kim and Laura are wonderful to work with and the product is exemplary!

A casual dinner party for 18 was enjoyed by all. The food appealed to everyone. Kris was attentive to all of our needs for guests and personal wants. Lasagna roll ups could be casual as well as fancy. We loved the Lemon Mousse. It was so relaxing, we would do it again:)

A friend recommended Blue Reef to me and I couldn't have been more pleased with the whole experience, from planning to the actual event. The communication and helpfulness really made it easier on me to make the necessary decisions. At the event, the food looked and tasted amazing. I'm glad somebody took pictures before it was devoured! Thanks Helen and Michael!
