    Gourmet Cuisine from the Nicest Person in the World

    Working with Heather was the single best decision we made when planning our wedding.

    First let's talk about the quality of the food. It was 100% top tier. We asked Heather to put together an eclectic selection of dishes spanning Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and South America, and everything was stunning. The charcuterie boards she prepared for our cocktail hour were comprised of incredible locally-sourced provisions and arranged beautifully. Dinner highlights included a perfectly cooked Argentinian skirt steak with gorgeous chimichurri, deeply delicious Thai Larb, and too many mouth watering sides to name. I cannot express just how elevated Heather's cooking is—and all from a humble truck. (Huge pro-tip: arrange for hot dog's at the after party, they are mind blowing.)

    Second, let me tell you about Heather as a person. As it turns out, she ended up working with us for over two years, thanks to Covid. We we were scheduled to get married in May of 2020, but that got cancelled. Then we were on for October, then June of 2021 and finally September of 2021. Throughout it all, Heather stayed supportive and engaged, even as she was challenged with keeping her business going in the middle of a pandemic that his food and hospitality especially hard. We will be forever grateful to her for her utter steadiness, profound kindness, and unstoppable optimism. She is a treasure of a human being, truly.

    Delicious and fun!

    Pippy’s was the perfect caterer for our rehearsal dinner. Heather was amazing to work with. She tailored the menu to our (extremely difficult) allergy needs, and everyone absolutely loved it! They raved about how good the dessert ones and every single person had second or third helpings. I would absolutely recommend!
