    Amazing Caterers

    Thank you so much to Dana and her team for making our wedding a perfect day! Dana, Malik, and Izzy helped with everything leading up to our wedding and were super stars on the day of. I know we probably were not the easiest people to work with (crazy parents) but Dana and her team went out of the way to answer all the millions of questions we had. The food we had at our wedding was absolutely delicious. All of our guests raved how good and pretty the food was. I was also very impressed with all the servers and how the food was presented to our guests. I also wanted to give a huge shout out to Malik, who would check on our table and make sure that my husband and I were eating and drinking enough and just generally making sure that we were doing ok. I cannot recommend them enough for anyone hosting a party at their venues.

    Best Choice We Made!

    We used FFT for our two-day wedding celebration blending both American and Indian cultures. My spouse is also a foodie which made the stakes high but FFT was beyond accommodating and creative with the menu. We were very impressed with the taste and presentation from tasting to day of. All of our guests raved about the food! Erica was so nice to work with, very responsive and worked hard to make our vision a reality.
