    Flexible and Innovative Caterer

    My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Gesche and her team! After our original wedding was scrapped and completely changed into a microwedding due to COVID19, Gesche’s Gourmet came to the rescue! Two weeks before our wedding Gesche joined our vendor team and helped us quickly come up with a wedding menu that fit our budget and also followed social distancing guidelines. She was so easy to work with, had great creative ideas and really put our minds at ease. The food turned out delicious and our guests loved the individually plated appetizers. We would absolutely hire Gesche’s Gourmet again!

    Excellent food & service!

    Gesche is warm, friendly, and prepares a wonderful feast! We live out of town and she was very flexible with us communicating via email and phone conversations and worked with our schedule to set up a tasting while we were in town. We loved everything she prepared for us at the tasting and looked forward to the wonderful food we and our guests would be enjoying on our wedding day. On the day of there were complications (no electricity and no running water!) and Gesche and her team were flexible and put in a lot of work to pull everything off! We know it was a lot of work for them and nothing that we are aware of was compromised in delivering great food for the cocktail hour and dinner reception.

    In good hands!
