    Curated menu, gorgeous appetizers, delicious!

    We had a bit of a tricky situation since both my now-husband and I are vegan but had plenty of meat-eating guests. We wanted southern comfort meets fine dining with vegan options that even the most carnivorous guest couldn't resist, and Fords developed a completely unique menu item of TOFU CHICK'N AND WAFFLES!!! which is my favorite dish and they let us modify an existing package to do exactly what we wanted. Paired with southern short rib, brie mashed potatoes and braised brussel sprouts with a delicious salad, apple jicama slaw, and even fancy cucumber water, everyone was SHOCKED by how delicious the tofu was and how yummy everything overall was! No one even knew the appetizers were vegetarian/vegan and simply commented on how scrumptious they were. Fords took care of scraping the dishes clean and repackaging them for our rental pickup so we didn't have to worry about that. Food was my biggest concern for the wedding trying to balance what I was comfortable eating and what guests would like, and now all I can complain about is that we don't have anymore of it left to eat!

    Great food!

    We were very happy with our experience with Fords Fluent N’ Food. We originally were scheduled to get married in October of 2020, but, due to the pandemic, rescheduled for July of 2021. Chef John did a great job of communicating with us throughout this time and made sure that we could taste the new Summer menu. Everything, particularly the appetizers, was absolutely delicious and brought lots of compliments from guests. We were especially impressed with the snacks that Chef John prepared for us while the bridal party was getting ready before the wedding. It was a great touch that really showed that Fords Fluent N’ Food goes above and beyond.

Cannot say enough good things about Fords Fluent N' Food! Not only did I trust them with my own wedding, but I highly recommend them to all others seeking catering for any occasion! People are still raving about the food at my wedding (and rehearsal dinner) 4 months later! Their attention to detail, kindness, care, and concern are second to none! I have no doubt this power couple will continue to take the industry by storm!

Let me tell you a story - I didn't like sushi. I hated it. Wouldn't eat it - and was one of those people that always ordered the hibachi choice on the menu - but I worked one event with Fords Fluent N' Food where they served sushi and now I have a sushi date once a week. When I say these two should own a restaurant I'm not lying. Everything Chef John makes is mouthwatering and delicious. I always recommend them to my clients and love working events where they are there because I know I'm going to be fed and fed well. They are the best!
