From the time I was contacted by "Ecstasy Events by Char" with an initial bid , until completion, it was more than a pleasure. I initially did some research, looked at some pictures of food and read some reviews. I respond to the email. Charlene and I talked about the
"No Pork" Menu, the # of people, budget, time, place, date etc.
She knew exactly what I wanted and even threw in some ideas, which I loved because "THIS IS WHAT SHE LOVES TO DO" !
I actually hired her to do a 2 day drop-off service. She offered to give me a lil discount for hiring her for both events, which was very considerate.

Everything was so Delicious !!!!
Day2: Saturday Birthday Dinner 01/14/17
We opted to have the caters stay n help out, which was additional fee and well worth it. J'Nae & Derrick were their names, and were also the same two who did drop off on Friday.

I should of had rice for the kids & others who like it :)
You can tell the Mac -n- Cheese was a family recipe as it was so YUMMY! I loved the black eye peas, they were perfectly cooked. The corney bread was different, I'd admit, but all the adults enjoyed it.
It had real corn in it!! The picky kids would of preferred regular Jiffy from the box, with a ton of butter LOL. I'm so mad I didn't get a chance to have a Red Velvet Cupcake tho , By the time I turned around they were gone. I guess I should of known... hehe
I was told they were so moist and frosting was perfect, not too sweet !
I'D LIKE TO PERSONALLY THANK YOU SO MUCH CHEF CHAR!!!
I appreciate you, J'Nae & Derrick !!!

I can't say enough about your professionalism , as well as J'Nae & Derrick , your reasonable rates, willing to work with me & stay in contact every step of the way. The food and service was impeccable.
BUT Let me say your customer service and positive energy is supreme! I am so sorry I wasn't able to take any photos :( I'm sure someone in our group has some and if so ill add them later..... TY
