Amy made my wedding!!!!
Amy & her team absolutely made my wedding perfect! The food was a 100/10!!! So delicious. All my guest loved it and the team even saved my husband and I a plate to be able to try all the food while we were out taking pictures!!Sent on 06/09/2019
Not only was the food amazing, the set up was too. There was so many loose ends that needed to be tied up by others, but Amy took it upon herself to go above and beyond to make things perfect! If I could get married all over again, I would choose this team any day!!

I don’t often post on message boards, but my new wife and I were so impressed with Amy, her food and her staff that we were compelled to do so. I write for the both of us, not only as a client, but as a food professional as well.Sent on 12/28/2018
My fiancée and I had been engaged for two years, basically waiting for several things to “fall in place” before tying the knot. One evening earlier this month we looked at each other and decided, why keep waiting? So, it was determined we’d get married…in less than three weeks on the 21st. Winter (or Fall) are our favorite seasons, our favorite holiday is Christmas and we both love December, so why not?
Clearly, we didn’t have a lot of time for the usual ad nauseam tastings with multiple caterers, so my fiancée suggested Amy. She’d known of her through a professional association of which they are a part, and I was already familiar with her having been in the catering/event planning business, though we’d never met. Sometimes putting your eggs in one basket is the best thing to do and we will forever be thankful that we did just that with Amy.
Amy was not just genuinely thrilled for us; it was obvious from the start that she was sincerely tickled pink we’d chosen her. It became evident very quickly that for her, we were more than just a “new client” or “a job.” She took our special day and us to heart…and THAT’S exactly what came out in her food and her staff’s performance...heart.
Many times, food looks stunning, sounds great, and can smell wonderful…but then upon that first bite, it has no flavor, no impact, and offers nothing memorable. This is NOT the case with Amy. Her heart and passion comes through in every bite. I have to say, as a discerning food professional and life long foodie, I was greatly impressed and so was my wife. Amy’s food was not only technically proficient and presented attractively, more importantly, it had soul, depth, flavor, and tasted the way food should taste if someone has truly put their heart and soul into it…it had personality!
Professionally, I noted all the culinary details as I’m well aware of the short cuts that can be taken…there are no short cuts here. Everything, from the perfectly sized “one bite” app, flawless doneness of the short ribs and succinctly timed salmon, French beans kissed with just enough heat from the grill to give added depth of flavor without burning, to the miniature tarts filled “a la minute” so that the crisp shells don’t become soggy. I also noted the buffet layout and décor; not only functionally and logistically laid out concisely, but adorned in such a way as to highlight the food, the setting and our theme without detracting from the food itself. Believe me, we noticed everything and we are still getting compliments from our guests about it.
The one common thread throughout is that although everyone had a particular favorite food or two, they all eventually declare just how fantastic everything was. Just as with restaurants, it’s not uncommon with caterers for clients to enjoy a couple of items a bit more, not be so thrilled about a couple of others and simply dislike one or two other foods. This is the first time we’ve ever enjoyed every-single-thing…and believe me, we tasted EVERYTHING.
Over and above the amazingly executed food, I have to say, we were incredibly impressed with her staff. Each and every member, both floor staff and kitchen staff, were practiced, poised, professional, approachable, and projected an honest happiness to be a part of the evening. They were all very attentive, always willing and able to help wherever and however they could, and even if it was with a request outside their specific duties. I noted the kitchen staff seemed very happy if not passionate about what they were doing all night long, and that is always a good sign. The fact that Amy, as owner of the company was also on premise all night as event chef said a lot. Most owners either don’t show up at all or make the obligatory appearance, but Amy was hands-on every step of the way.
In the end, our expectations were most certainly met and exceeded. Kudos to Amy’s Culinary Adventures…and what an adventure it was!
