What people are saying
"Anytime I have needed something for our office Chef Melissa is always there. Great food and service. I highly recommend her."
"Amazing food. Best chef I know for catering. Well thought out recipes."
"I can’t say enough about Chef Melissa, she was a complete pleasure to work with! She was so professional yet very warm and caring, you can tell she truly wants her clients to be happy! She catered our daughter’s wedding for 200 guests in a Tuscan Italian Theme. The antipasto display was very impressive. The salad was crisp and fresh with a house made balsamic that is probably the best I’ve tasted! Our entree’s were grilled to perfection - New York Steak and Chicken in a brandy cream sauce. Two different types of pastas, fresh veggies and caprese salad. Delicious doesn’t begin to describe it! We also had a dessert bar with 8 different types of fresh house made sinful treats! We would highly recommend Chef Melissa for any occasion large or small - you will not be disappointed!"
