    Wonderful experience!

    We loved working with Tal for our wedding reception! She was so warm, accommodating, and responsive to our needs. Tal's food was delicious and offered a wide variety of options for all dietary preferences (e.g. gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan). Our family members and friends enjoyed everything immensely! Tal also supported us through the planning process by coordinating our rentals, connecting us with local vendors, and setting-up the venue. Whenever any issues arose, Tal was there to help us resolve them (no questions asked). We could not have executed such a lovely event without her! Her staff were equally welcoming and professional and helped everything run smoothly. We would highly recommend her to anyone!

    Generous, warm-hearted

    Tal is a delight and her food is delicious. She's a bundle of energy who always has your best interests at heart. She not only blended many of our preferred flavors into her delicious Middle Eastern cookery, she even attempted her take on a complex Indian dish that we love. Moreover, she offered some advice about planning, set up, design that others would charge for —just enough to make things run smoothly. As we were planning our wedding ourselves, I can't thank Tal enough for her help from beginning to end. From the bar (included in the price), to the reception hors d'oeuvres, and the meal, to the phenomenal dessert table and a simple but utterly delicious wedding cake, she handled it all. She was for us not just a caterer, but a rock who soothed whatever anxieties and answered whatever question. We owe the loveliness of our wedding to Tal and her team.

    Tal Cohen of Ba-Li Cravings is the BEST! Her food is fresh, delicious and presented beautifully. Her menus are unique. Not your cookie cutter chicken and pasta that you find at so many events. Most of all, she is one of the nicest, most caring individuals you will ever meet. Her goal is to make your wedding day special, personal and a meal your guests will remember and be talking about for months to come.

    Tal with Ba-Li Cravings is a delight too work with. She has a great team and her food is so interesting, multi-cultural and not your every day food affair. I have used her for weddings and small retreats too.
