TAL IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I cannot praise her and her team enough - hiring her was definitely one of the best wedding decisions we made!Sent on 06/27/2018
Her food is incredible - my family could not stop raving about how good it was. My dad's side of the family is Israeli, so we really wanted Middle-Eastern food for the wedding and were thrilled to have something not only authentic, but really just amazingly good (I'm still daydreaming about the kebab).
Beyond the food itself, Tal herself went way beyond the call of duty as a caterer. She gave us so much advice throughout the wedding planning process, even visited the venue with my husband to figure out table layout, decorations, etc. She's very responsive, knowledgeable, and on top of things, and was always willing to talk to us by phone to sort out any details we were confused about. On top of that, she's also an incredibly friendly, warm person. Do yourself a favor and hire her - she is the BEST!

Ba-Li Cravings, run by Tal, was wonderful! Easy to work with, very accommodating, reliable, and (most importantly) the food was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend and will be looking for opportunities to work with them again.

Tal and her team were outstanding! Before committing, Tal invited us to sample her delicious food. We were hooked. She listened to our every request and embraced the challenge to feed 150 people family style! Tal allows you to personalize her unique menu to meet your cocktail hour and reception needs. Her staff was attentive, professional and understanding. Our carnivores, vegetarian and gluten free guests were completely satisfied with the meal. Tal was an absolute joy to work with and her food is scrumptious!Sent on 07/31/2018

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.
