Debbie and Sherie did an amazing job catering our wedding. They worked closely with us to develop the perfect menu, taking care to balance our "vision" with our budget. They were in constant communication with us leading up to the big day, including a site visit to scope out the unique venue and provide some logistical advice.
The day of the wedding was flawless. The staff was professional, friendly, and efficient, the food was amazing, and when it was all said and done the place was immaculate.
I would highly recommend Passionate Pear catering.

Deb and Sherie were helpful and full of ideas for planning an "Afternoon of Apps" at our house, as a "meet the newlyweds party". We live in a small ranch, I've never had a catered party here and everything was fantastic. I had been to two events that Passionate Pear catered and was impressed with the taste and presentation of their food. Deb and Sherie answered questions, helped me cover small and large details, were super supportive with lots of positive energy. The guests (50-60) loved the apps and the service. At the end, leftovers were packaged up and the kitchen was spotless! Truly wonderful in every aspect. Thank you for making the day so happy and easy and tasty! Sue and Mark KentSent on 10/13/2014

We were so happy with the entire experience with Sherie and Debbie! My daughter had a very tight budget and a few guests who had allergies, and some food dislikes, for her wedding and they suggested a couple of menus that worked for everyone! The groom was happier with one of the menus especially so that's what we chose.
Debbie and Sherie also catered my daughter's Bridal Shower and everyone just raved about the food. The taste, presentation and selections were amazing! For the shower I had some silver pieces I wanted to be incorporated and they graciously made them fit perfectly. When I need anything catered my first call will be to the Passionate Pear! Finding a caterer who will cater an even of less than 25 people was a challenge and we are so glad we found the Passionate Pear.
