May I recommend for your wedding reception…

Dear Engaged Couple-

May I recommend for your wedding reception a wonderful caterer, Claudia Gibson.  When my daughter and I were planning my daughter’s wedding, we must have talked with a half dozen different ones.  Claudia stood out from the rest.  She really does put all into the food that she prepares.  Not only that.  She is friendly and well, accessible.  She is there at the ready to answer questions, and she is willing to amend her menus to suit your preferences. She will prepare vegan and glutton free meals, for example, on request.


My daughter’s wedding was glorious.  We decided to do a buffet dinner.  Claudia suggested heavy hors-d’oeuvres, which really did satisfy even the hungriest of guests.  Her food is fresh, fresh, fresh.  She buys most of her ingredients locally—we’re talking fresh eggs, produce and even meat.

Her most recently planned menu for wedding rehearsals  is something she calls a “casual rehearsal dinner.”  By that she means a simple meal of soup, an artisan bread basket, dips, salad and dessert.   Sounds scrumptious to me!

If you are NOT dreaming of a multi-tiered wedding cake, you might ask Claudia about what she suggests for dessert at your wedding reception.  She says that lately she has been baking fruit pies for wedding receptions.  She can also bake cupcakes or cookies.  These are generally fresher than wedding cakes—which can take several days to assemble.
