Impressive

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

We just want to let you guys know how impressed we were with you and your business.  We’d love to have you cater our rehearsal and reception (that is, if you’re still available). 

We had an appointment with another caterer in town after our initial meeting and we canceled it after we had met with you.

Tastings

Monday, February 18th, 2008

Once you have chosen a menu it is time to set up a tasting. 

We charge $50.00 for our tastings and expect to see 2 people at the tastings.  Normally the bride and groom.  If you would like to bring more people just let us know ahead of time.  We will do our best to accommodate. 

We prepare a sampling of most items from your menu selection.  If there is a certain food you really want to taste, be sure and let us know so we are sure to include it.

 Come hungry!
