About

We hired Kelli with Arcodoro after meeting several other caterers. She was well organized, personable and we felt that our wedding reception was her top priority, no matter how many other clients she may have had. She met us at our reception venue and asked us questions about what we wanted our day to be like and came up with so many ideas that we would have never thought of. From our first meeting we liked Kelli and felt very comfortable with her. She only had two months to put our reception together and never made us feel like that was an issue. She helped us come us with a menu that was varied and delicious and was beautifully presented! The chef made a fantastic pumpkin ravioli with a cream sauce that was the hit of our reception! Kelli and her staff went above and beyond in setting up our venue and making it look even more beautiful that we had imagined. They set up all of the tables from tablecloths to decor to the lighting of so many candles. Our cake table and guest book table were simply amazing and Kelli even took charge of setting up and arranging our cupcake cake because the cake vendor arrived too soon and the cake table was not ready yet. Our cake looked EXACTLY the way we wanted it, even though Kelli had only seen a picture of it one time. She was the go to person for all of our other vendors and she made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. The staff was awesome as well, and everyone with Arcodoro made sure that my bride and I were taken care of all evening! We truly felt like everything was under control and we were able to be the guests of honor at our reception. Kelli is not just a wedding caterer, she does it all...and makes it look effortless. That's the kind of service that I will recommend to everyone we know. Kelli, Thank you for everything you and your staff did to make our wedding day the best day ever for both of us! The venue looked fabulous, the food was great and all of our guests just raved about what a great time they had! We heard over and over that it was the best wedding reception they had ever been to. YOU ROCK and we can't thank you enough for going above and beyond for us and allowing us to enjoy our reception and guests without worrying about a thing! You provided us with personal service from start to finish and we won't hesitate to contact you again next time we need the level of service you offer. Mollie and Kimberlie Hines

Ask about our "farm to table." We specialize in private parties, date nights, and food demonstrations. Our team is composed of a chef and a baker who will ensure that the best overall experience is given to the client. Our ingredients are fresh and bought from local vendors in order to support all small businesses in Houston. Everything is homemade except for the pasta, cheese, and wine (for right now). Nothing brings a family closer than a good dinner. Dinners are our passion, and we would like to spread our passion to everyone else!

What a Cake did an Instagram teen party for me. I recommend them HIGHLY.:) The cake, cupcakes , and cookies they made were perfect! They delivered the desserts to our home in perfect condition and were so professional and polite. They are the people to call for any party or event--all their desserts were so delicious we got compliments from everyone. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Moon is a pleasure to work with! As a chef, she is consistently able to create both delicious and visually attractive dishes that showcase her unique Asian/American fusion style. She has the creativity to design menus from scratch or to spice up customer requests. The results, for me, have always been excellent! Moon's professionalism permeates every aspect of her business as well. She is schedule-consious, able to create and prioritize action lists, and basically get the event done on time and within budget - I couldn't ask for more!

My husband and I work full time, and are very very busy! We were spending way too much money eating out, and started to look into personal chef services. Maria's Gourmet Kitchen was a god-send!! I used to teach cooking classes, and am a huge food snob so I was a little nervous to order 'premade dinners', but EVERYTHING is made from scratch and amazing quality! You can tell they do an amazing job!! It all smells and tastes so fresh, I am so impressed. The instructions on the packaging make everything so so easy after a long day at work. WOO HOO! Thank you, Maria!

Great work! We and our family and friends really enjoyed the pictures! Ashlae was able to accommodate us on a very short notice (less than a week before our due date!) Prices are great compared to other photographers we have looked into! Thanks again!

Shorty's Canun Catering was fantastic! Everyone raved about the food! It helped make our wedding reception a complete success! The food was great! Most of my guests are Louisiana cajuns, and they said 'two thumbs up!' I asked a close friend if she liked the food and her response was "I went back three times!" The service was great, the food was hot, delicious, and plentiful! The ladies are personable, professional, and always on top of things. I will definitely keep them at the top of my list for our next party!

Being a mother of four girls and a wife keeps me in the kitchen. Cooking is a huge part of my life so not being able to do it well makes for a Interesting topic of discussion at dinner. So I was super Excited and so was my family having Chef Dee bring Chef Dee's Finest to my kitchen (cooking class). The Best Salmon and Black bean salsa! Easy to cook on a day when I don't have hours to spend in the kitchen. Quick and Flavorful what a busy wife and mom like me needs. Thank you Chef Dee.

They did an amazing job for the Awty International homecoming. We went with a Oscar/ Red carpet theme, they brought in a red carpet, had massive oscar sculpture and a great DJ. Overall it was a great experience and we couldn't have asked for a better planner.

Our family is trying to eat healthy; and this type of service helps keep us on track. It's better than My Fit Food because it's more variety on the food options. Plus, it's the convenience of having a personal chef prepare the food in your home.
