    Long overdue review of amazing caterer


    This is a long overdue review of the best wedding caterer we could have imagined. We worked with Jennifer Thompson and she was incredible. She worked tirelessly with us tweaking the menu, and continued to make changes after our tasting (which was amazing...so much good food...).

    From the first phone conversation we had with her, Jennifer was intent on making our vision and themes come to life. We wanted Mexican food with a twist for the main course and a selection of hors d'oeuvres that matched our favorite foods. The various iterations of the menu that Jennifer put together were all fantastic. The most challenging thing about working with EB was trying to decide which of the most amazing dishes to include on our menu...(including drinks. who knew lemonade could be so delicious? We chose the maple cayenne but the jalapeno peach was a close second).

    Now, on to the wedding day. As far as I, the controlling bride, could tell, everything went perfectly. The guests loved the food (my co-workers stationed themselves by where the apps were coming out :)) and the staff made sure that my husband and I ate plenty during the cocktail hour. Dinner was somehow even BETTER than the food we tasted in our intiial tasting. We had our own doughnuts and doughnut wall, and the EB staff set it up beautifully.

    As if EB couldn't get any better....the day after the wedding, my husband and I noticed a beautiful EB cooler in the pack of items that came back from the venue. It included a full picnic set with silverware, wine glasses and plates. They packaged doughnuts for my husband and me and also gave us snacks like cheese and pate. We use that cooler regularly.

    All in all, I would hire EB again and again. One year anniversary party?? :)

    Thank You!!

    My stomach is growling as I write this. Elaine Bell catered our wedding on 6/14/19 and we simply could not have been more pleased with their service and FOOD. I mean, just check out this menu:

    - Salad of Baby Organic Greens with Balsamic Roasted Black Grapes, St. George White Cheddar, Spiced Black Walnuts, Fuji Apples, Balsamic Apple Cider Vinaigrette & Basil Oil
    - Greek Roasted Chicken with Lemon, Garlic & Oregano
    - Seared Salmon with Leek Pea Puree, Sweet Corn Fennel Ragout, Pickled Mustard Seed & Popcorn Shoots
    - Tagliarini Salad with Pine Nuts, Lemon & Zucchini with Fresh Herbs & Lemon Herb Dressing
    - Whole Roasted Rainbow Carrots with Honey Thyme Glaze
    - Rustic Artisan Breads with Sweet Butter

    Guest after guest told us it was one of the best meals - and not just wedding meals - they've ever had. We also got RAVE reviews on the cheese display we had out during cocktail hour. The one minor complaint my husband had was that it took a little longer than expected to get the main courses out after the salad (we did plated salads and family style for everything else), but it didn't seem to bother anyone else.

    We worked with Cara and she was organized, kind, and so responsive to our needs - no tomato for me, no meat for him, vegetarian for the cousin, add passed apps, take away passed apps, etc.

    Thank you, Elaine Bell staff, for everything! Highly recommend!

    I have been so fortunate to work with Elaine Bell and her team on several occasions. Not only is their food incredible and innovative but their staff goes above and beyond your typical catering staff. I tell all of my clients that the caterers are one of the most important aspects (if not THE most important!) of their wedding day and what they provide is a lot more than the food. You really can't go wrong when working with Elaine Bell. They make my job easy and I know I can rest assured on the big day that my clients are in good hands.
