I just wanted to say thank you for everything. I had an amazing time and my guests loved the food. Also, thank you for putting food to the side for me I got to eat it yesterday and it was delicious!! I hope we get to work together again. Thanks!!
"Thank you thank you thank you!"
Now that I have a moment to breathe, I wanted to send a quick and huge thank you for everything on Saturday! The food was amazing and you got such rave reviews on everything.
"You're tops in our book and you're doing amazing work out of Putnam Avenue. All the best and thanks for the macaroons! "
Meisha and I had a really good feeling about you and our catering from our first meeting and in the time since we appreciated all your suggestions, collaborative spirit, professionalism and dedication to making sure our guests ate and were merry.
"I pay a lot of attention to details and you guys did exactly what I wanted and more."
Thank you for going above and beyond in delivering what we wanted for our wedding day. You and your staff were incredibly professional and helpful throughout the entire day. Thank you as well for caring so much about me and making me feel comfortable the entire time. I am so happy I went with your service. I will definitely recommend you in the future (and don't be surprised when we call about the baptism!).
"Everything was wonderful!"
Rick and I just want to extend a sincere thank you for making our wedding reception such a special event. We got so many compliments on the taste and, presentation of the food, and service of your staff.
"It was the absolute happiest day of my life"
I'm just writing to thank you again for your wonderful food and amazing service at my wedding this past weekend. I simply cannot thank you enough for helping to make the day so amazing.
" We had a cocktail hour and a buffet dinner that was delicious and everyone raved about the food afterwards."
I found The Fork Goes on the Left through Yelp. I contacted Mellanee and right away she got back to me with a proposal. She is attentive, loves food and is willing to work with you. My wedding day had no problems, especially on Mellanee's end. From the fresh food, beautiful tables, nice staff, I didn't have to worry about my catering choice. Mellanee is definitely a pro and her food is wonderful. Recommend!

You never know where you might meet a bride. Two things a caterer should always have on hand--business cards and a friendly demeanor. Both of which came in handy when Felicia struck up a conversation with me about the contents of my basket while shopping at her place of business. My lucky day, I'm a caterer and she's getting married. Felicia, her Mother and Antaun arrived for a tasting. What struck me most was the closeness of the Mother and daughter bond. Mom took cell phone videos and was thrilled to share this moment with her daughter and her fiancé. I knew this wedding would be a unique and loving occasion. Felicia shared with me later that "most brides don't get to eat, dance and enjoy their own wedding. Not me, I did all the above and had a ball!"
Teresa and Diallo's story is truly a love story. They were high school sweethearts whose love grew into maturity. It was Diallo who took charge as my initial contact and got the ball rolling on their wedding details; while Teresa focused on the design elements. These details were very specific since they wanted the food to reflect their Jamaican and Trinidadian cultures. Let's just say the pholourie was well received, judging from the empty platters. Their wedding had all of the special touches that reflect their personalities making the evening a unique and whimsical celebration.
I love when the groom is my initial contact for the catering details. He takes the reign and allows his bride to focus on the finer details, herself. Meisha and David added a personal touch at the reception by naming their signature drinks after key elements in their respective upbringing: " The Festival at the Lake" for the bride and the groom's "The Dollar Cab". Their personalization again was displayed in the groom's blackcake; which was shaped in the island of Trinidad. They not only celebrated their love for each other but paid homage to their cultures.
Well, Esi and Peter's wedding was a labor of love. I fell for the couple when I viewed photos of their culturally enriched engagement celebration in their native land of Uganda. It was my honor to cater their American wedding as they included thoughtful elements of their Ugandan roots as evident in the array of colorful baskets which were beautifully incorporated into their tablescape by their florist. It was a memorable evening of cultural pride, great food and partying until dawn.
I really love to see a couple enjoy each other's company. It was so refreshing to hear the roar of Reggie's laughter from the kitchen where I prepared their tasting. Their vision included a relaxed and classic wedding utilizing the warmth and elegance of The Inn at Noble Lane. Their guests we're able to experience the entire grounds which flowed from the heartfelt outdoor ceremony, progressing to the cocktail reception in the grand foyer and dinner in the upstairs ballroom. The evening culminated with a dessert bar in the tea room and s'mores on the cobblestones patio. It was evident their marriage would be one of great friendship, mutual respect and a whole lot of fun.
Well...my introductory meeting with Tim, Sharlene and her parents began rather dramatically with Mom-in-law sitting out the tasting in the car. Can anyone relate to the push & pull between tradition and having a modern twist on your wedding day? I had to lure Mom in with the promise of great food; albeit not traditional to her Dominican heritage. No small feat, but in the end I won her over the old fashioned way. You see, at the end of the reception Mom gave me a big hug, along with "congratulations, the food was so good, everyone is happy, thank you!"
