    The BEST Catering Team!!!

    We don't have enough words for how much we enjoyed working with Gina and Mary! They truly went above and beyond to make our wedding planning and wedding day spectacular! They are so incredibly easy to work with and at the end, almost feel like family! Not to mention the food is OUTSTANDING! They catered our rehearsal dinner the night before as well and the whole weekend we received so many raving reviews about the quality and multitude of options we had! I could not have imagined working with a different caterer and I PROMISE you, they are worth it and then some!! I'm still getting comments about how good the food was - weeks later! Best decision ever!!

    Best Wedding Move Ever!

    If you have a wedding, you need Food for Thought! Lauren and I are SOOO excited! Sampling Food for Thought/Gina's food prior to our wedding day was amazing and makes me hungry thinking of it. Lauren and I's wedding day of 170 guests which encompassed Stone Gables Estate/Star Barn was a dream of laughs and special moments thanks to Food for Thought Catering who expertly catered for us.

    All food provided was of the highest quality and diversity. The service staff was super professional, polite, and agile ensuring every guest needs where met. The communication by Gina and Mary with Food for Thought was exceptional!

    Lauren and I thoroughly researched caterers for our Wedding 3/25/2023 at Star Barn Stone Gables Estate. All our research always came back to Gina and Food for Thought! When working with them they treat you and your vendors as part of the family. For example, Lauren and I needed to get to the lower level of Star Barn to find Lauren's grandparents and Gina was right on it. Another example was when Lauren was served during cocktail hour the servers made special efforts to make Lauren laugh and smile.

    Lauren and I got a ton of compliments during, and after the wedding about how amazing the wedding and food was from our guests. Everyone agrees Lauren and I's wedding had the best cocktail hour ever with those butlered hors d鈥檕euvres. Picking Food for Thought as your Caterer is a sure win!

    +Butlered hors d鈥檕euvres: Bruschetta was Lauren's favorite and was super yummy. The Creamy spinach-artichoke-Parmesan au gratin in mini phyllo cups was excellent. The Chipotle BBQ all beef mini meatballs were perfect and added great diversity. The mini tartlets of goat cheese and fig were elegant. The smoked and roasted sausage made my Hungarian side of the family really happy. The maki sushi rolls where my personal favorite and I never imagined getting sushi on my wedding day! (sweet potato, salmon and cucumber, ahi tuna, and California rolls)

    +Entr茅es: Basil parmesan encrusted chicken breasts where super moist and the crust was crunchy. The grilled flat iron steak was very juicy!

    +Dessert: Fudge brownies was everyone's favorite. The Lemon and Salted caramel pecan bars where perfect. It still amazes me how moist your Vanilla sheet cake with vanilla butter cream icing was!

    +Late night snack: Want to thank you so much for warming and serving our Philadelphia Pretzel Company Pretzels

    +P.S. We loved snacks and tray of brownies you prepared for us the day after the wedding for our long drive home!
