    Incredible food & service!! Perfect for our micro-wedding.

    Tal went above and beyond to make our very intimate wedding celebration feel special. We only had 6 people total (my husband and me, plus our parents) but Tal delivered a dinner & dessert menu worthy of a huge reception. All of the food was so delicious- the appetizers, the entrees and of course her incredible desserts. I would recommend Ba-Li to anyone looking for catering for an event of any size.

    Working with Tal was a delight! She was very flexible, had many wonderful menu selections and everyone LOVED the food for the rehearsal dinner! It was perfect in every way and the groom and bride-to-be couldn’t have been happier ~ as HUGE fans of Mediterranean food! The enitire process was super easy and Tal was very responsive, friendly and provided excellent service! I would hire Ba-Li Cravings catering again in a second!

    Amazing food and great service!

    Tal at Ba-Li Cravings makes truly spectacular food. Everything – appetizers, mains, desserts, breads – is outstanding and delicious. It doesn’t matter if you’re having a tiny event like we were, she still treats everything with the same high level of care and attention, making excellent suggestions for us. She created an amazing custom cake, too! Our family couldn’t stop raving about how great everything was. Since COVID, you can even order from her website for a Friday night dinner, which is a real treat. Any chance you have to eat from Ba-Li Cravings, do it!

    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.

  • The Treman Center Barn & Farm Weddings

    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.
