Amazing caterers, wonderful people!
Courtney and Tomer at Shovel & Spoon are an absolute dream to work with. The entire wedding thing can be stressful - yet every time we spoke throughout the planning, we always ended the conversation feeling more at ease. We reached out to them for our September Maine wedding and from our initial conversation through the end of our wedding, they could not have been more supportive and helpful. We really care about seasonal food grown locally and they were the perfect fit!
We also have several friends and family members with dietary restrictions and Courtney & Tomer went above and beyond to be accommodating. Service is very important to us and Shovel & Spoon made it clear that it wasn't just the food they cared about. When we were planning, the overall "experience" of our wedding was mentioned several times. On the day of, they really delivered! Among many other perks, they made sure we got a chance to eat (not always easy as the bride & groom!) and they even packaged up a little to go box with wedding cake and cookies for us.
I cannot tell you how many people came up to me at our wedding and mentioned how delicious everything was - from the salmon and chicken, to the seasonal salads with cabbage and apple, to tahini cookies (my absolute FAV!), to the lobster app and hummus. Weeks after our wedding, people are still reaching out to me to tell me how delicious the food was.
When we think back to our big day, one of the biggest highlights will be having Shovel & Spoon as part of it. Courtney & Tomer - thank you so much for everything and the memories! Can't wait to see you both back in Maine :)Sent on 11/02/2019
Shovel and Spoon's reply:Colleen + Richard, it was so much fun working with you two! Thank you for your thoughtful words. We were truly honored to be a part of your special day and are so happy to hear you and your guests had such a wonderful experience. Cheers!! Courtney + Tomer

Best in Maine!
We are so excited to work with Shovel and Spoon for our wedding. If you are looking for a caterer that goes above and beyond and will blow your guests away, think of them! We have been communicating with many caterers, but the food that Tomer and Courtney produced was so far beyond what anyone else offered, they were not even comparable. Taste their food and you will have no doubt that they are the best choice in Maine!Sent on 01/08/2019
They bring a diverse cooking style to their food that makes you feel like you are in a 5 star restaurant in Portland with personalized portions, rather than large batch cooked catering. That alone makes them one in a million. They have a background in Middle Eastern cooking, Thai, and European including Spanish and Mediterranean. One in our group does not often choose ethnic dishes, and even she loved all of it. I think their food is unique, but also would be widely accepted by all people in your party no matter their comfort zone for cuisine.
They have been professional, prompt, and easy to communicate with from the beginning. Planning a large event is stressful enough, so it is really nice to hire someone you feel like you can trust and can actually make your job easier. I definitely don’t feel the need to overly monitor. I know that no matter how involved I am, the end result will be fantastic. There was not one dish we have tried that we did not like. They seem to truly care about making the results as wonderful as can be and are invested in being a part of things. I guess that is the difference between a catering company where it is simply a business going through the process and hiring people that love the process from start to finish – from farming to creating and serving. It comes across instantly how much fun they have cooking and how they are excited to share and see you enjoy too. Great ingredients, passionate people, and true cooking skills lead to a great end result.
Courtney and Tomer are able to magnificently showcase their own produce and if an ingredient is not available from their own personal farm, they purchase locally from those around them. To me, it is important to support local and I appreciate the farm-to-table aspect from the vegetables, to proteins and cheese.
I cannot recommend them more highly! Try their food! No caterer will ever compare again.

Couldn't be happier!
We had Shovel & Spoon cater our rehearsal dinner and wedding & could not be happier with how everything turned out. Courtney and Tomer were amazing to work with throughout the whole process. They were friendly, personable, and accommodating throughout the process from the food tasting through deciding and refining the menus to finally preparing and serving the food.
Speaking of the food, it was positively delicious. They grow or locally source they're ingredients and that freshness comes through wonderfully in the final product. From our rehearsal dinner including pulled chicken sliders, reuben, roast veggie sliders, potato salad, tempura green beens, and fruit including husk cherries to our wedding where they served hummus, veggies, fresh bread, cheese, bruschetta, incredible mini tasting bites, empanadas, green curry, roast chicken, moroccan fish, roast sweet potatoes, sesame crisps, tahini butter cookies, cardamom buttons, carrot cake ... I'm sure I'm forgetting some but everything was delicious and freshly prepared. Personally I'm not sure I could ever eat enough of their empanadas or falafel.
During the event, their staff was friendly and outgoing. Our guests commented on how personable the staff was. When we passed Courtney and Tomer they were all smiles and had set aside a small bite of each of their apps so that we didn't miss anything. After anticipating their food for months, it was greatly appreciated and they certainly delivered and more on everything from the tastings. They are also very professional and made the night about us enjoying our night and having no worries.
I can not rate Shovel and Spoon highly enough. Whatever your catering needs (or just buying and enjoying some of their wonderful bread or hummus at a local farmers market) working with Shovel and Spoon is delightful and delicious. I now wish I had another event to throw so I could work with them and enjoy their wonderful food again.Sent on 10/10/2019
