Ginger at Chef Paul just catered our backyard wedding. Everything about working with her was excellent and above our expectations. Her food is absolutely amazing, and she was able to create delicious foods that met our exacting requirements for choices of vegetarian and gluten-free, and she listed all ingredients so that our guests with food restrictions were comfortable. All our guests raved about the food. But the best part about working with Chef Paul Catering is Ginger herself. She is an excellent listener and took careful notes, listening tirelessly to our preferences and style. She was flexible to changes and immediately responsive to questions as they arose during the planning process, answering texts and emails promptly. Ginger, in addition to being a chef, is able to arrange for all rental needs. Her attention to detail is amazing. I recommend this caterer highly. Can’t say enough! So glad we chose her for our big day.

So far, we have used Chef Paul twice for both our kids' graduation parties. For both of the parties, we catered from Chef Paul and a Pakistani restaurant to satisfy varying pallets in our families and friends. We requested a special dietary needs and Ginger was able to accommodate it without any hassle, other caterers gave us a bit of a hard time and weren’t able to fully understand our needs. For my oldest graduation party, Ginger not only brought the food but also served it at our venue, she was extremely approachable and went out of her way to understand the food from Pakistani caterer to explain to our guests. For my youngest, I had the food delivered to our event and ended up realizing how great of a help Ginger truly was during our past event.
Everyone loved the food we got immensely, but the biggest hit was the cupcakes. I am still getting compliments from everyone on how great the food and cupcakes were. I would recommend for any event big or small. Their prices are very reasonable. They will remain our go-to caterer as long as they are in business.
