    Amazing food, service and attention to detail and safety

    Last year we selected Kiss the Chef catering for our wedding because of their outstanding food and willingness to work together on ideas to make certain options more accessible and eco-friendly. We are so glad to have chosen them as our vendor and they have proven time and time again that Kiss the Chef is the #1 choice for catering. Our wedding is next month and we were having some concerns about how catering would be handled because of COVID during the start of the pandemic. Kiss the Chef has gone above and beyond to stay in contact with us about the work that they have put in and how they will be keeping us, our guests and themselves safe. Yesterday, while we did our wedding planning meeting during an open house, we really got to see how absolutely amazing they have been in person. Not only is the appearance, taste and obvious quality of their food and service superior, but the obvious precautions that they are taking are really amazing. They have streamlined their service to be fast and efficient while taking into account the proper safety guidelines, without loosing their charm and style.

    Great Experience, Service and Food

    Wow. Just wow. We cannot say enough good things about Kiss the Chef. We did our due diligence, attending tastings for several caterers. By far, the food quality was the highest with Kiss the Chef. We went with the artichoke chicken, pork tenderloin with bacon jam, corn elote, grilled asparagus, and a individual salad. In addition, we had the seasonal crustini as a passed appetizer while the post-wedding photos were being done. Post wedding, we received many positive comments on the taste, presentation and quality of the food. We were really happy that our loved ones that attended our reception received a high quality meal. Working with Kiss the Chef was easy. The only in person meeting prior to the wedding was at a tasting where we met the chef and the manager. It was clear the chef takes his cooking seriously. He is truly a chef who enjoys his art of preparing food for others. We worked mostly with Mike, the manager. He was very responsive to our questions and concerns and had great suggestions for improving our event. His attention to detail and commitment to quality was evident throughout. The event. Kiss the Chef showed up on time and took care of everything they committed to and more. The table settings were immaculate. The serving line was beautifully adorned. The plated 75 people in about 20-25 mins and managed to make everyone's plate look wonderful. Here is an example of what makes them special, We had one guest with a very specific food requirement. When nothing on our menu filled the need, Mike disappeared into the kitchen onsite and prepared a specific meal to meets the needs of the guest. Wow.

I had the great pleasure of working with Kiss the Chef, at Ally & Mike's Windmill Winery wedding. From the start; Michael was so wonderfully accommodating; making sure their menu was just as they desired, and loved that he was double-checking to make sure each and every choice was just as they had planned. Ally and I attended the open house at the Winery; just before their wedding~ going over everything, and Michael and Ed went over-the top; making sure all would be set perfectly for their wedding day. Loved that special care they gave the bride! Not only is the food amazingly delicious, but they are extremely accommodating and easy to work with. Loved the kindness and all their help with the day-of set-up, the sparking glasses and flatware, and their presentation is wonderful! I hope to work with them again; it was a perfect day! Thanks so much Michael and Ed!!
