Gail did a fantastic job providing breakfast for 30 people over a three day event. She was on time, essy to work with and her personally baked goods are second to none! Thanks Gail; America's Morning Show with Blair Garner NASH FM and Westwood One look forward to working with you again. ~ Donny Walker, Senior Director of Country Radio Syndication.Feb 28, 2015VerifiedGail Standish W.'s reply
Thanks, Donny, I enjoyed working with you as well. Let me know when other things come up.
I'm here to say I enjoyed my experience cooking and perfecting some of my favorite meals. Things like the perfect omlett and my very own vinergrate dressing. Mrs. Ward has given me tools to use for all my meals. And she made cooking fun I'm sure everyone in the class would agree we all learned a lot. And we got great cooking utensils to take home.Apr 17, 2015Gail Standish W.'s reply
Thanks, Janell. I have a great memory of the day you made your first perfect omelette. What a joy!
I was the one that hired Gail last minute to cook breakfast for 350 people a fundraiser for African Leadership (our previously acquired caterer backed out last minute). I knew Gail's food would be tasty and top quality - as I had had the privilege of being her roommate for a year! But she also managed the kitchen effortlessly (or at least appeared to), directing volunteers and getting food out to everyone hot and timely! We thoroughly appreciated Gail's professionalism and willingness to take on the challenge last minute.Feb 18, 2015
Gail has catered for me twice in the past year. She made box lunches for a Womens canoe trip, yummy sandwiches, hummus with veggies, a huge cookie all in a darling bag decorated for autumn. Recently she catered box lunches again, this time for 10 bridesmaids, mothers and the bride while the party dressed, took pictures and gathered in the bridesroom before the wedding. The lunch was amazing and Gail's creative flair adds a specialized touch ,which is unique to her business. Gail's catering, really ends up being a "a beautiful wrapped gift" to those she serves.Feb 13, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is easy and the same most restaurants use, I charge food cost x 3. This way I can source the best possible ingredients for you and balance the cost by cooking from scratch. My bids are per-person and created after a quick chat with the client.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I do everything from dinner for two to catering for hundreds, but specialise in catering for business events and other small, intimate meals. I also work as a personal chef, and teach cooking in customer's home just for them or as part of a lunch or dinner party.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I was recently hired by a local poet to create a book launch event for 60+ guests. She wanted it to be a celebration of the people in her life rather than a reading/book signing event and we decided to make it very simple and very elegant. I created a menu of seven small, perfect bites with champagne and sparkling water to drink served by a few of my art students. My client coupled this with a playlist of only the really good disco songs for contrast. The event was fantastic.
