Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: A piece of my heart goes into each event we are part of. Whether it is a cocktail reception, private dinner at home, children's party, or wedding reception, I want every client to be completely satisfied with the menu they select as well as the services we provide. Working directly with our clients, scheduling initial face to face meetings or, if clients are not in the area, phone calls, and on-going text and email contact is very important to us. Understanding what the needs dreams or event requirements are and being able to fulfill them is always our goal. As a single source for our clients, we have relationships with local farmers, and ranchers to get the freshest ingredients and are able to customize any menu to suit the taste of the individuals. We partner with vendors to provide any rentals needed and handle all deliveries and pickup activities. Even though we are working hard, we feel we get to attend the best parties around! It is a pleasure associating with people that are enjoying themselves. Meeting wonderful people is definitely a highlight.

Event Catering (Buffet)

Karen was amazing! She was excellent from our consultation all the way through our rehearsal dinner. We really felt like she cared about every aspect of our event, from the excellent food to the decor. Karen didn't miss a thing. She was easy to get ahold of and asked all the right questions. I would use her services again in a heartbeat!

Susanna, It was such a pleasure working with both of you. I didn't feel like I was working. I hope we have the opportunity to work together again one day. Very best wishes to you and Tres.

Karen catered my daughter's very large wedding and it was perfect! The food and service were fabulous and the team was punctual, professional and personable. Karen really worked with me to get what I wanted and still stay within our budget. Thank you, Karen, for making this experience so pleasant, I will definitely use Tasty Temptations again any chance I get!

Karen was amazing throughout the entire planning process and execution of my family Thanksgiving dinner. Her traditional menu was a definite crowd pleaser. On a personal note, she was also a great addition to our family gathering. Her pleasant personality, attention to detail, and fabulous food created the perfect event!

Event Catering (Drop-off)

I host seminars on a regular basis, and the meals ordered from stores and restaurants are getting tasteless overtime. I found Karen on the internet and saw her background that drew my attention immediately. I decided to give her a try and see how it will work for my event. The results turned out fantastic! She showed up right on schedule, professionally dressed with the food I'd ordered. I was able to tell that it was the food I've been looking for just by the smell of them! The unfinished dishes were all boxed up and bottomed up which had never happened before in my seminars. I highly recommend Karen catering your meal if you are sick and tired of the food from stores in the market. Actually, I am hiring her again to cater my next seminar!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Upon having a conversation with the client the initial quote is very likely to need adjusting. It is not possible to give an accurate quote without specific information on menu requirements, service needs and the products necessary to make the event a success. Client needs to consider budgets for food, servers, bar, rentals, and disposables. We work through each of these as needed.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    With the first contact we will establish whether our service is right for the client then schedule a meeting or, if the client doesn't live in the area, a phone call. This is a great opportunity to plan the menu and get to know each other. After the menu is selected, we provide an estimate or quote. If the quote is accepted a deposit is provided by the client to secure their date. A service contract is provided and on-going communications continue until the event has completed.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a member of Chef networking groups, take classes on line, and attend local cooking classes. I test recipes for a magazine and for classes I teach. I have been catering events and parties for friends for over 20 years.
