My Own Chef was phenomenal from the beginning. We looked at several caterers, but MOC was the only caterer that was willing to work with us, and developed a menu that we wanted within our budget. They also provided guidance on what to serve and how much to serve at the cocktail hour and for dinner. Additionally, it was helpful that they were also able to provide a beautiful and delicious cake (which received a ton of compliments from our guests). I also found out after the wedding that some of our guest were not able to eat raw tomatoes (which we had a few dishes that had raw tomatoes). MOC staff took the time during our reception to prepare dishes for guests' special dietary needs on the spot. When I found this out, I was incredibly grateful and so thankful that we selected MOC to carter our reception and to take care of our guests. Thank you, MOC, for going above and beyond!Sent on 05/30/2017

Best wedding food (and cake) ever!
We booked MOC for our wedding reception, per the recommendation of our wedding planner (Donna at The Party Affair) and could not have been more pleased! Their prices are reasonable and their food is absolutely fantastic. Throughout the entire planning process, they were kind, professional, and very prompt in responding to our phone calls and emails. Vickie, Darrell, and Lance went above and beyond in planning our wedding meal. We had multiple special requests (family style, pasta course for our Italian background, outside alcohol) that they did a wonderful job of accommodating. Our guests were raving about the food, saying it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten. And our cake, which was an Italian cream cake, was to die for. We have had so many people complimenting both the meal and the cake for days after the wedding!Sent on 06/02/2019
As an extra service, we also booked them to deliver sandwiches, chips, and cookies to our hotel pool the day after our wedding for our family and any lingering guests. This was all fantastic as well!
MOC - We can't thank you enough. You're perfect and wonderful and made our wedding food unforgettable!

We used MOC for our rehearsal dinner and reception food and were so happy with our choice! The german food was delicious and the fajitas were incredible! They were accommodating to our menu changes and happily wanted to do whatever we wanted! All of our guests had great things to say about the food which was really important to us! The only downside is they don’t have a restaurant for you to go eat all their food whenever you want!Sent on 06/17/2018
