    Dorcus has been wonderful! Especially with this virus going around. Essentials has made me and my family feel comfortable while we did our tasting and the food was amazing! We cannot wait until our wedding day!

    Very nice to talk to

    I ended up choosing another vendor because of the proximity to my event but essential catering was very responsive and promptly sent me a list of options and pricing, she was also very nice to talk to and discuss my wedding :)
