About

WOW! Our first time having a personal chef come in our home to prepare dinner for a small holiday gathering. Not only did I not have to worry about the meal, I got to enjoy every minute with our guests. Joyce asked what kind of meal we wanted and she delivered it perfectly! The meal was absolutely delicious and Joyce was fun to have interacting with everyone! We will ABSOLUTELY have her come back for future dinner parties!

About

We couldn't have been happier with Pearl Snap Cuisine as our wedding caterer. I'm starting with the most important thing to me, as the mother of the bride. They were the only vendor that I didn't have to check in with or ask questions. They did exactly what they said they would, when they said they would. They even offered encouragement and extra help on a couple of small things. The chefs and servers seamlessly performed their jobs without flaw, down to packaged up meals to send home after the wedding. Now on to the food! Not only was their food delicious, but they made the dinner experience part of the evening celebration. Their basic, affordable menu was as good, if not better, than that of a high quality restaurant. Then they had options that added so much to the wedding. The bride and groom chose an exotic fruit bar for the cocktail hour and it not only tasted wonderful, but had people gathered around talking about the fruits and taking photos. The infused water and chocolate s'more bar, which were part of the basic package, were delicious and fun. But by far, the best part of the experience was the "hot rocks" offering. Seasoned meat and vegetables cooked on hot rocks that had our guests hanging out at the buffet bar. Truly nothing typical about this wedding food! People are still talking about the food! Thank-you so much Pearl Snap Cuisine.

Laura Eliel made my experience super easy and terrific. I wanted an in-home dining experience. She and her assistant arrived about 5 pm. I asked how can I help. They said, You can't! Guests arrived at 6:30 p.m. and we began a luxurious meal that was delicious and lovely. And, at the end of the evening, the kitchen was clean and I did not lift a hand!

Lucille's Catering has a very professional, courteous, and friendly staff. I have attended several events where they were present. It matters not if their cuisine is down home or international, it is very delectable, quite pleasing to the palate, and made with Chef Mertis' tender loving care!
