After much careful thought and consideration me and my fiancé hired JW Events for a house warming party in our new home. Not only were there extremely responsive in getting back to us in the initial inquiry phase but James and his crew were extremely professional and passionate about what they are doing. His food is made with heart and soul yet it’s refined and has depth. My future in-laws are still talking about how amazing his food was (much to the dismay of my fiancé who considers herself quite the chef 😉). You can’t go wrong with JW Events ! Thanks for a great time James and staffJun 1, 2019JW Events's reply

Thank you very much for the review. It was a pleasure cooking for your wife and her friends. James
JW events was exceptional. Everything was made from scratch, even sauces and meat marinades. All of the ingredients were from the farm, the service guys brought over were very professional, and the kitchen/house were left very clean.Aug 2, 2019VerifiedJW Events's reply
