    The Best Service and Food!

    Alison and Durham Catering were incredible to work with! We made our decision based off the excellent reviews and were not disappointed. We decided to do a bunch of small plates for our wedding which as we learned was more work but was so worth it. We loved all of the dishes so much and so much creativity went into the food. It was all very delicious and exceeded our high standards. All of our guests commented on how good the food was all evening long. Alison made the extra efforts to make the event special and it was so easy to coordinate the rentals through them as well. Highly recommended and we hope to work with Durham Catering again in the future

    Quality product and service

    My husband and I got married in Durham this past summer. Alison at Durham Catering Co. did an excellent job of helping us select our dinner menu. We ended up deciding on a southern spread buffet style complete with pulled turkey and smoked brisket. No only did we get to enjoy the delicious meal ourselves during our reception, Durham Catering Co. also made sure we had "go-to" boxes at the end of the night. I've received so many compliments on the smoked brisket from guests, and I can personally attest it was incredible. We were extremely pleased with the high quality product and service that we received for our wedding. Highly recommend for your event in the Raleigh-Durham area!

    Awww, Hannah, thank you! You were such a pleasure to work with, what an honor to be a part of your amazing day!

    The best decision

    Hiring Durham Catering company for our wedding at the Cookery was the best decision we made in planning our wedding. Alison was our coordinator and she responded to every single one of our frantic questions, and was always calm and helpful. They basically pulled off the entire event, as we didn't have a wedding planner. The pricing was excellent and everyone loved the food. It was important to us that the food be good and that there would be vegetarian options that even meat eaters would enjoy, and they did. DCC listened to us, ACTUALLY listened to us, and got us everything we wanted within our budget. We loved that it is a local, woman owned company that pays their employees a living wage. Just wonderful.

    Durham Catering Co.'s reply:

    Will, it was truly our pleasure to work with and serve you! I would hardly describe you as frantic...you were a joy through and through!
