We had a fantastic event with Esther. She had a wide variety of menu choices and worked with us to make selections. They took care of everything from set up to clean up and were so easy and friendly to work with. It was wonderful to have a spotless kitchen with leftovers wrapped up at the end of the day! Best of all the food was absolutely wonderful—everyone raved about it! We would definitely work with Esther and her staff again.

I hired Esther to cater a dinner party to celebrate our Mom's 80th birthday. From the first encounter, Esther was very accommodating. We were expecting 50 guests, some with food allergies ranging from nuts to shell fish. Esther assured me that she would create a menu that would be elegant and delicious. And did she deliver! The event took place on 12/31/2016. The food was amazing! She sent her employee, Crystal, to handle the event. From the moment Crystal arrived until the moment she left, she went above and beyond, and made the evening a huge success! Crystal was warm and professional, and worked tirelessly to provide us with outstanding service. We were so impressed with this amazing woman, we had to give her a round of applause before she left. Thank you, Epicurean Nutrition, for making our event a HUGE success. We will definitely call you again for our next event. Happy New Year!!

FAQs

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

    Most of our pricing is usually itemized , food cost, service personnel cost, equipment rental cost and at times event decor cost such as floral arrangements, drapings and tabletop decor. We also tailor menus and accomodate most client needs based on their budget.

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

    We normally get the customers information such as name and contact number. We ask what their needs are, whether its food service only they need or food catering service, service personnel,delivery, setup, breakdown or event planning and designing. We then ask what if they wish to choose from our ready made menus or customized menus and if the customer has a specific budget, so we can a menu based on their needs. If menu tasting is required we set up a date and time for the customer to come into our showroom and do a sampling.

    We attend conventions, business forums and exhibitions to stay on the latest trends in our field
