Wedding and Event Catering
The food was very good and plentiful, everything was on time and clean-up left nothing for us to do. Karen knows how to cater a great party, her employees are very nice yet need a bit more training in bartending and catering. Karen has the patience to work with them.Jul 5, 2016Verified
Wedding and Event Catering
Highly recommended- A+++ Karen, catered my event for over 60 guests flawlessly and beyond my expectations. My promotion ceremony was a success thanks to Karenâs hard work. She took my ideas and transformed them in to a superb event. The food presentation was beautiful and colorful, the food tasted scrumptious and the decoration was very attractive. She took the time to consider all the details (such as her selection of silverware, flatware, tables, linen etc) that cohesively brought the entire event together. All of my guests were impressed and loved the catering. She handled it all for me. I was truly impressed with her abilities and would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.Mar 13, 2015Verified
Event Catering (Buffet)
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!Apr 6, 2017VerifiedTasty Temptations's reply
Lucy, I am so glad you were happy with everything we did. It is our goal to make your evening one you can enjoy. You've done so much work up to that point, it was time for you to relax and enjoy. Our team is amazing and I love working with them. Thank you so much, Karen
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!Apr 20, 2016Verified
Karen catered my twin girls sixteenth birthday party. She is both professional and personable. It was a true pleasure to have her in our home. Everyone enjoyed Everything! To die for spinach artichoke dip and Fondue fixings. I will definitely hire her again in the future!Jan 20, 2016

- 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.
