Compliments all night!

Hire Chef Penelope!!! She and her team did an incredible job! The first thing our guests said as soon as we spoke to them was how good the food was!!! That is not common for wedding food. For someone to serve 175 people and the food be amazing is almost unheard of. Highly, highly recommend! I wish I had more pictures to show!

Fantastic Experience!

Chef Penelope's Catering catered our wedding back in September, and we were thrilled with their service. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and accommodating, the presentation fit seamlessly in with the decor, and the price was very reasonable. We were especially impressed with their offering the option of providing special meals for individual guest who have different dietary restrictions and preferences. We would highly recommend Chef Penelope to cater any event!

Vegan plated dinner

Chef Penelope did an awesome vegan dinner with passed apps. It was so delicious that not one of our non-vegan guests had anything negative to say about it. I still dream about the salad dressing.
Truly fantastic, got tons of compliments, price was much better than other quotes we had. We had a lot of fun at our tasting too. Thanks, Chef!
