    Best Meal Ever

    Becky Souflis and the catering team at Simply Gourmet made planning easy and fun! The groom and I were put totally at ease and well taken care of on the day of the wedding; Becky made sure we wanted for nothing! From start to finish everything was absolutely seamless and perfect! Our guests are still raving about the delicious meal!

    Amazing!!!

    The food and wedding coordination was amazing. Becky did such a fantastic job. Worked with our changing of the menu several times and always responsive. On our wedding day, Becky kept everything organized and even removed a huge foot print stain from my dress. I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you for making our day so effortless and smooth for us!

  • The Jam Band
    The Jam Band Wedding Bands

    "My name is Jam, CEO of The Jam Band, and I had the pleasure working along side Becky and her staff at Simply Gourmet Catering on a wedding at The Ringling Museum in Sarasota. From my initial interaction with Becky, to the end of the event, she was a pleasure to work with. Becky catered to the band's needs and did so with ease even though she was consumed with keeping the bride happy and running the event smoothly. The food was delicious and the overall presentation was spot on. I was super impressed with her and her staff as she remained calm throughout and did not micromanage. You rarely run into event planners who can run an event as gracefully as she did. I highly recommend Simply Gourmet for all of your special occasions."
