Alpha Pitt Smokers by Jason Martocci was the best wedding food we will ever have and for a very reasonable price. Poor Jason had a rough and strict diet he had to work with for my wife and he did an excellent job. My wife is deathly allergic to seafood, antibiotic/hormone free meat, and Gluten is no fun for her either. We really wanted something special for our wedding that everyone loves; and everyone loves a good cookout. It is hard to find cookout food everyone can enjoy with out harming my wife. Normally when we go to a cook out she just doesn't eat. No one was willing to take the challenge because they didn't want to alter their recipes until Jason. Jason made homemade gluten free bread for our Gluten Free cheese stuffed sliders; Stuffed Chicken and pork, Fresh grilled veggies and a wonderful fall salad. We froze all of the leftovers and ate the last two sliders we had when we got back from our Honeymoon. The worse part for Jason was we had to do a tasting of his food which meant Jason had to make the food twice. Both times absolutely perfect. This was the best wedding food we ever had (twice). He also took our orders and made a special plate just for us and kept it warm so we could eat and get right back to the party. The run through the food line was purely a show with no pressure and all fun. A small FYI: at the tasting he invited several of his chefs for us to meet and cooked some bacon wrapped shrimp for them on a separate grill. Since I don't have the same allergies as my wife I tried one. It was the best and last bacon wrapped shrimp I will ever have. We joke that we will have to renew our vowels every year just to have a good cookout. A person that will change their recipes; without hindering their flavor profile and cater to your needs is what catering is all about. That is definitely something that Alpha Pitt smokers does and does right.

Pamela is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable chef . She prepared and served two brunches on Easter weekend in our home with plenty of delicious leftovers for my guest to graze upon later in the evenings. We are now planning nutrient specific meals for upcoming special occasions, like my son's birthday on Thursday. ...thanks to this site.

We had Bikini Panini cater my wife's suprise birthday party. Laura and her husband did a fantastic job, and our friends and family couldn't believe we had a food truck on site. Laura provided appetizer trays inside, and guests went outside to order food. Her husband worked the "front of the house" and was friendly with our guests while Laura worked the "back of the house" and cooked all the food, etc. These two were the nicest folks, and not only did our guests LOVE the food, but they loved Laura and her husband. They were kind, personable, and friendly. We loved hearing about their vacations all over the world (some of the inspiration for their menu items) as well as the story behind the truck. Hard to believe they are new to the food truck biz - it felt like they'd been doing it a lifetime. I can't wait to see them again at Ardent, Lickinghole Creek, or another private event. We actually contemplated going to Ardent the next night just to eat their food again. These two were 6 stars on a scale of 5. Could not have been more happy with their service, food, and price.

When my son was born we found out he was allergic to dairy, soy, wheat and eggs. Since I was nursing I was not able to enjoy any of those things either. It also meant no one could bring me food! Some friends chipped in and got Elizabeth. She saved our life. Not only did she eliminate all the 'bad' foods, she offered suggestions of things I never would have thought of or known how to cook. Her food was amazing and my husband still talks about it. #lifesaver

So sorry in being so long doing this review. I had to arrange this event from a distance and didn't get to attend myself so when I got rave reviews regarding lunch I knew it was because Aaron Turner delivered everything as promised. He was friendly to work with, there was a great variety of food to meet many needs and it was all delicious. Wonderful experience!

    I found Theresa through Instagram when I was researching local pastry chefs for an event I was having. She responded quickly to messages. We discussed the types of pastries I wanted and she shared a few new ideas too. All of the pastries were so beautifully presented and they tasted even better! All of my guests were raving at how delicious they were. There was not one crumb left by the end of the evening! I definitely plan to have Theresa cater my next event as well.
