Erika, I couldn’t let this day end without telling you how absolutely delicious everything was that you made for me today!! Your Food was fantastic! The lemon bars and brownies were gone in a blink of an eye and people wondered if I had anymore!! At the end of the day, the were fighting over who could take the last of the Risotto home!! Everything was just fabulous!! I can’t thank you enough for all your work and all the lovely cooking you did to make my party a huge success!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

On a Scale of 1 to 10, tonight’s dinner was a strong 11!! Absolutely delicious!! It moved right up there along side of your Salmon dinners.  If I ever miss picking that when you have it again, please tell me!!  Everything was mouth watering, the salsa, the guacamole, the beans (which I normally don’t like beans) and the rice, and then the main attraction, the shrimp fijitas!!  A real Winner – big time!!

THANK YOU!!

Dear Erika,

I really enjoyed working with you. Thanks so much for your contribution to our wedding! You and your staff took great care of us and our guests. I cannot express how much I appreciate your food and all the special touches, like the basket of food for our hotel room, and everything else.

Thank you very much!

Erika recently catered a party for my wife and I in Los Gatos, and for my father-in-law’s birthday party in Saratoga last weekend. Erika really did a great job on both. She takes time before hand to really understand what her clients are looking for.

Dear Erika, Thank you so much for the memorable luncheon you served our guests—close to 100 of them—on Saturday. The food tasted great and it was presented beautifully. The menu we came up with (composed salad with dried fruit & nuts, steamed asparagus with lemon butter, pesto pasta, chicken cassoulet, three gourmet pizzas, cheese board [gormet goat cheese], and a lemon sorbet in raspberry sauce from locally grown berries) was imaginative and delicious. I loved that it capitalized on the use of fresh local ingredients, and it was so perfectly attuned to our family’s gastronomic preferences.

Dear Erika, Thank you for the fantastic job you did catering our holiday dinner!

Everything was delicious and served piping hot right on time. You are so gracious and well-organized that you gave the impression that dinner for 35 was no trouble at all which, of course, contributed to the residents’ sense of relaxation and well-being. I also very much appreciate your accessibility and flexability, it’s alway a joy to work with you.

Erika,

Thanks for all the effort you and the other put into a wonderful day for our family and friends. I so enjoyed planning the menu and appreciated all the modifications you were willing to make as the time drew near.

The tofu was a giant hit with all of us, but I, especially asked if you “would be willing to pass on your secret recipe?” Enjoy the Autumn season and thanks again!

Erika – you were amazing. I knew the food would be delicious, and beautifully presented, but you are a real artist the way you took those linens and made our patio look so lovely. Wait until you see the pictures. How you kept everything running so smoothly and always with a smile, was a wonder to us all – the food and wine just seemed to flow effortlessly. We had a great time and I was so RELAXED. I never enjoyed a party more.

Thank you for being so sweet and gracious and making Wally’s birthday such a success.

Lois and Wally Trabing

Erika – We were truly blessed to have found you as you are much more than a caterer. Thank you so much for your expertise and flexibility. You are amazing! I can’t wait to recommend you to THE WORLD!

Mr. Ken O’Shea

Erika – Thank you so much for being so spectacular! We honestly couldn’t have asked for more and it far exceeded our expectations. I kind of feel like I’m losing a friend now that it’s over. It would be great to see you again.

Your servers were phenomenal as well! (So sweet and accommodating!)

The turkey rice soup really hit the spot and the salad was fantastic! The pecans, feta cheese, & pears dressing were just a fantastic combination!

Thanks so much!
