    Incredible!

    Hiring SKBT was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding! I talked to Karen, the owner, and from our first conversation, she knew instinctively what I was looking for, and brought it to life beautifully on our wedding day. Mind you, I don't always know how to articulate what I want, but she was able to conjure exactly what I envisioned. Our guests are still raving about how perfectly cooked every bite was, from the appetizers to the desserts! My now-husband is also a vegetarian, and unlike many of the other caterers we talked to, this was not an obstacle for SKBT because Karen and her team have a very "can do" attitude. In fact, many of our dedicated carnivores were as impressed with the vegetarian options as the rest. Anything I asked for, SKBT did it! To top it off, I asked if they could serve pisco sour (a peruvian mixed drink) to celebrate my home country, and Karen didn't even think twice about doing it! It was so yummy, and even my super-picky peruvian family loved it. Karen was also great about communicating throughout the planning process.

    On top of all of this, when it came to the wedding day itself, SKBT were amazing when it came to the logistics. Setting up, and taking down the tables and table settings was quick and efficient, and their servers were attentive and always on the ball. The logistics were a major source of stress for us, but they turned out to be a total non-issue. Shout out to chef Tess and Jules (who made our breath taking wedding cake).

    I could go on and on, but I just mostly want to thank them for making our wedding day a DREAAAAAMMMMM :)! Thank you, guys! Will definitely recommend them to everyone and anyone!

    Simply the best

    SKBT is hands down the best catering you will find. They did an amazing job on my bridal shower and fantastic job on my wedding desserts. Their attention to detail, quality of food and service is unparalleled. Karen went above and beyond to accommodate me and make my bridal shower and wedding desserts special despite hiccups due to Covid. You seriously will not find better food or service. Highly recommend!!

    Amazing food!

    It was wonderful working with Karen and her team at SKBT. We were so excited to create a customized tapas-style menu, and the tasting was truly one of the most fun experiences we had during this planning process. So much so that even when we rescheduled the reception to 2021 we still wanted a taste of their food for the smaller wedding ceremony we had this August. The food we received exceeded our expectations and was perfect after a hot summer day.

    We look forward to having them back for the reception in 2021. Already Karen has been very professional and has provided great information on what we will need to host a larger backyard celebration. Thank you!!

    Small Kitchen Big Taste's reply:

    Thank you so so much! We are thrilled to be working with you and can't wait to celebrate with you again in 2021!
