Here is what our customers have to say.
The staff absolutely loved all of the food and it was completely consumed. Thank you for doing another terrific lunch for me.
I want to thank you and send a big shout out from our guests this weekend: YOUR FOOD WAS AWESOME, YOU ROCK!!! I am so happy our paths crossed and will for sure recommend you and contact you again if we have another big celebration.
Your catering was spot on! It was exactly the right combination and the perfect amount of appetizers. AND it was so delicious! Thank you for everything.
I wanted to tell you what a great spread you prepared for our Christmas party, everyone enjoyed it. Personally I enjoyed that beautiful salad but next time I’m getting Mac and Cheese for the Adults, as they almost ate all the Mac and Cheese before all the children were feed. Thanks again for all your help setting up and for making our Christmas party a huge success.
Hope to have you cater our next event.
Just want to say THANK YOU! Dinner was delicious! Everyone enjoyed it so much. I shared your information with quite a few folks.
The egg casseroles and French toast was absolutely wonderful and everyone really enjoyed the breakfast!! There wasn’t anything left!!
Hi Chef Cathy, on behalf of the McMillon family we thank you for your service. The meal was excellently prepared and your service was impeccable. We've passed your information on to others that live in the area. Again, all the way from Detroit, Michigan thank you for everything!
I wanted to let you know that the food was delicious!! Thank you so much for making it for our celebration!! I will definitely keep you in mind for future celebrations!!
I have used this catering service on a couple of occasions at my model home and have always been totally pleased with the outcome. The food always receives rave reviews and the service and professionalism displayed are always beyond reproach. I plan to use them again when the need arises and enjoy referring them to others as well.
Any Occasion Catering Service and Chef Cathy were amazing to work with. Chef Cathy was patient and very accommodating with our community as we planned our annual Xmas Gala. Her staff, on our special evening, were friendly, efficient and allowed the guests and committee people to enjoy the event. The best however, was the wonderful food that we all enjoyed. I can’t wait for next year as we will be booking Any Occasion Catering Service again.
The food was phenomenal and we loved the set up and the extra mile that you and your staff did for us We are looking forward to using your services again next year for the party. Thank you so much for everything you knocked it out of the park!
Chef Cathy is the best! She was prompt when it came to meeting, discussing the menu we wanted. She made the most amazing food that my guest were talking about for weeks! They even wanted recipes! I highly recommend her and her staff for any catering experience you need.
Chef Cathy did an amazing job at my wedding, first she responded very well to emails with all my concerns and questions. She set up a tasting right away and my parents fell in love with her spunky personality and taste of food. She had a conversation with me the week of the wedding to make sure everything was in order and i never had to say a word during wedding day to the bartender (which she supplied) or the staff. They were on point. Gave us food first, made sure we were taken care of then feed my guests with 2nd's and 3rd's. Definitely someone i will recommend for a lifetime.
WOW!!! Honestly, that was everyone’s first reply today.
For years we have used local restaurants to cater but on a whim I decided to hire Cathy after a recommendation came from a friend for our Pastors appreciation lunch today. I decided to go simple with the pan seared chicken, whipped potatoes and a salad. Honestly, for a church lunch I could not have picked better. Her meal was simple perfection. I ordered a little more than I really need in hopes people would take a little home for an evening snack. We had members going for seconds and thirds and instead of asking people to take a little home, they were begging to take home a plate. I highly recommend Chef Cathy and I can promise, we will be using her more often.
Chef Cathy catered my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary party. Everyone was pleased with the quaility of the food, the presentation and Chef Cathy's professionalism. She was very easy to work with and also very accommodating with our requests. She offers a great variety of food and drink choices and has a very direct approach to planning and executing. I would definitely use her again for my catering needs and I highly recommend her.
Chef Cathy went over and beyond with her service and delicious food. We had a cake snag and she came to our rescue. Chef Cathy is a gem!
Chef Cathy and her crew were ultimate professionals. The food was fantastic and the service was great. Made our special day flawless.
Good Morning Chef Cathy, just a line to let you know all my guests raved about the food and sandwiches you prepared. Thank you for preparing the food for me if I need a caterer again I will not hesitate to call you.
Lunch at American Business Interiors was excellent, thank you. Will certainly call again when the occasion arises.
Food was wonderful! They love it!
Our wedding day was wonderful despite the rain but that's what back up plans are for. The food was delicious and very plentiful. Everyone raved about the vegetable lasagna and the chicken marsala. I would highly recommend your services and will definitely contact you again if we need catering for an event after we move down. Have a fantastic day and thank you again.
Thank you for a beautiful and delicious lunch yesterday. Our staff gave you many, many compliments on every dish! We are very pleased with the food, your service and attentiveness to our special lunch celebration. Thank you for working us in to your schedule and we will return to you again. All the best -
LeAnn B. Smithson, Manager Administrative & Facilities Operations
Cathy, You and your staff did a wonderful meal for Dad’s 100th birthday. Certainly was part of the GRAND time we all had that day. We’ve got precious memories of this very, VERY, special day. Thanks for being part of it! Karen Kendrick
Chef Cathy, thank you so much for working with me on such a short notice. Everyone including Rick and myself were very pleased with your service and the food. Great job! Sorry I did not get to see you before you left. Thanks again, Sherry.
Chef Cathy and her team have catered 2 events for us and have done a great job. Great Food, Great Service. Thank you, Tina Webster
Professionalism and pricing unparalleled. Guests very impressed with presentation and overall quality of food. Portions were more than enough. At conclusion of service, to ensure guests were accommodated, a hydration station was set up to last the remainder of the celebration. Chef Cathy was reassuring and she delivered. We were more than satisfied with the service for such a monumental milestone for our beloved centenarian. Would highly recommend this vendor. Hands down!! Chef Cathy, you ROCK!!!
I wanted to thank you for providing the lovely buffet lunch yesterday for family and friends after my dad’s funeral. You made the day so much easier to get through. Patti and I thought of you right away when the time came, remembering that you had prepared such beautiful food for our mom’s service 4 1/2 years ago. You can be sure we will recommend your services to those in need. Again, thank you so very much for providing a wonderful meal.
Hi Chef Cathy,
Today’s luncheon was 5+ stars!! Everything was hot and delicious and the vegetable lasagna was a hit!!
Your customer service, attention to detail, and delicious food is appreciated. We will certainly call you for future events.
Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Excellent food! Prompt service!
This is not a review that is done quickly and without thought. Let's start with access and response. Chef Cathy returns your calls promptly and often answers herself, which is vital when you are trying to plan an event. Now imagine hearing one of the most friendliest voices, responding to your questions and sounding like she really wants your business. I know, rare, right? Now imagine being directed to a website and a delectable menu with costs listed, and being told..."If you want something different or modified, I'll make it happen." Now imagine deciding on a menu, answering logistics questions in a no muss, no fuss manner and the food being delivered on time to the second, without one mistake. Now finally, imagine your guests ooohing and aaahing over food you wish you knew how to cook and spending the evening with great food and great friends. That was my experience with Chef Cathy
We have used Chef Cathy for our Advent and Lent Penance Service dinners for our priests for the past few years. Our Pastor absolutely loves her Chicken Piccata! The food never fails to please, the portions are generous and always delicious! Thank you Chef Cathy
Chef Cathy provided food for both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. People are still talking 3 weeks later about how great was the food. I would highly recommend Any Occassion Catering for any event. Cathy adds her personal touch to every dish and it shows. Thank you Cathy for making our wedding day so special.
Thank you so much! Third time we have used Chef Cathy and it was wonderful! Absolutely recommend her and we will continue to use her for office events!
This was the second time I have used Chef Cathy as always she does a wonderful job and very accommodating. Very attentive to guests and their needs as well. Thank you Chef Cathy for everything!
The chicken salad croissant appetizers are amazing!! Everything was delicious and they were extremely professional at our wedding!
"The food was AMAZING! We can't say enough about this amazing lady for her exquisite talent for gourmet meals, professionalism and quality of service. I highly recommend Chef Cathy of Any Occasion Catering. You won't be disappointed!"
Food was excellent! Thank you so much!
My husband and I hired Chef Cathy’s “Any Occassion Catering” for our 10 Year Anniversary Party. Chef Cathy and her Staff were awesome. The food tasted yummy and I received many wonderful comments on how great it was and how nice they were. They were easy to work with, on time and I didn’t have to worry about any of the food preparation or clean up. It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely use them again in the future. Thanks Chef Cathy!
Mary P. from Merritt Island!
I was the wedding coordinator at the Rocking L Ranch for a wedding that Any Occasion Catering catered. It is my pleasure to give her five stars. She arrived with the most delicious food. The Bride, Groom, their guests, and the staff at Rocking L Ranch we're all raving about Chef Cathy owner of Any Occasion Catering
I just wanted to say thanks to Chef Cathy for a job well done at my association’s recent event in Melbourne. Planning an event from another state, I turned to an internet search to find a caterer. After reading many good reviews on several websites, I contacted Cathy to secure catering for two days with boxed lunches both days and a dinner for more than 100 guests. Chef Cathy was very accommodating in regards to my budget and offered guidance on tweaking my menu ideas. To keep in line with my budget, I opted for drop-off catering for the dinner and Cathy went above and beyond to add in extra items my organization would need to serve the dinner and beverages ourselves. Her attention to detail and concern for a successful execution of the event were refreshing. In addition, the food was very flavorful. I look forward to working with Chef Cathy when my organization’s event returns to Melbourne next year.
Always outstanding food, delivery, and service! Loved by all of our employees!
Hi Cathy, I want to thank you for the wonderful food you prepared for the reception at my parents’ home in IRCC after my father’s Church Service. We all enjoyed it and I heard many comments from our guests about how delicious it was.
Chef Cathy catered my son's wedding for me in October 2017. From the initial contact in February, till the day of the event, she answered all questions and concerns, and is meticulous and detail oriented. Cathy was extremely flexible to any changes, including me adding a third entree two weeks before the event. The day of the wedding was AMAZING! She coordinated with the DJ on the timeline, and she and her staff took care of everything seamlessly. What a relief that was, I was able to enjoy the day and leave all the details in her competent hands. The food was top notch, I had so many people asking me who the caterers were, and complimenting the food and service. I cannot express in words how pleased we were with Chef Cathy and her team, I highly recommend this caterer, and won't hesitate to use her again. She treated us like we were her family, and for that I am so grateful. Chef Cathy, THANK YOU for making my son and his wife's special day so important to you.
Chef Cathy catered my son's rehearsal dinner on 10/20/17 for over 50 people and did a fabulous job. It was an all inclusive event. She came and set up, passed appetizers, served the dinner and did the clean up and it was flawless. My husband and I did a food tasting in her shop and were very impressed. She served us the exact menu we planned for the rehearsal dinner and boy were we impressed. I had so many people comment on how delicious the food was for the evening. I must say that when the food was served, it was piping hot. That impressed me since she arrived at my home at 5:00 and we did not eat until after 7:00. What impressed me most about Chef Cathy was her willingness to please. It was all about the menu, our guests and the schedule. She stated to me several times that the time schedule was flexible and she would accommodate our schedule with the rehearsal at the church. I am so happy I found Chef Cathy and would use her services again in a heartbeat. She is very professional and an excellent chef. I'm looking forward to the next event I plan where I can use her services. Thank you Chef Cathy. :-)
Chef Cathy and her team were wonderful! We hired her for my daughters wedding reception. The food is delicious! She will work hard to accommodate all your needs. I had many compliments on the food.
Good afternoon, Chef Cathy,
I wanted to let you know that today’s Lunch and Learn was DELICIOUS, thanks to you! The roast beef was melt-in-your-mouth tender, and the potatoes were perfectly done.
Thanks for making today’s educational hour a tasty one, too!
Mark Gustetter, Sr. Project Manager
Fantastic food, service and Chef Cathy was a pleasure to work with! She really helped make our Son and his fiancées wedding a hit! We got so many complaints about the food! Highly recommend and we will use them again!
Chef Cathy was wonderful. Her priority was on making sure we were satisfied with our choices( which I changed a few times). The food was great. I highly recommend the eggplant parmigiana definitely a favorite with my guests. The salad was fresh and not overly dresses. Prime rib station was a crowd pleaser. I would absolutely recommend her and her team.
Chef Cathy: I have to say (speaking for myself and I am someone who LOVES to both cook and eat lol) I have to say the breakfast food was FANTASTIC!! Everyone here was very happy as well, so thank you so much from all of us! We look forward to doing business with you more in the future!!
Many thanks for the amazing food and wonderful service for our daughter's Quinceneara. The entire night our family and friends complimented the food. I sincerely appreciate the time and dedication to ensuring a wonderful evening. I have recommended you to our friends and familY as the catering service. Enjoyed working with you and your staff. Regards Eliana Faile
As the father of the bride, I can simple say awesome service, awesome flexibility, awesome value and awesome happiness by the bride and groom! Thank you Cathy!
Had the pleasure of enjoying Chef Cathy's magic for a small birthday event (25 guests). Everything was perfect: creating the menu, scheduling, communicating and delivery. Food was awesome. Everybody enjoyed the food. They're still talking about it. Thanks, Chef Cathy!
I have used Any Occasion Catering many times in the last couple years. This is by far one of the best catering places in Brevard County. The food is excellent and you cannot beat the price. Give them a try, I am sure they will not let you down.
Thanks Cathy for our recent successful catering. We always appreciate the great service and high quality of food that you provide. Your staff is always timely and courteous in assisting set up. Keep up the good work.
We are a new PTO board for our children's elementary school and found ourselves needing to cater a back to school breakfast! We were thrilled to find Any Occasion Catering to be within our budget and Chef Cathy was very easy to work with! The food was delivered hot, fresh and on time! Everyone enjoyed and we will definitely consider Any Occasion Catering for our future events! Sincerely, PTO Board Members
Chef Cathy recently catered my daughter's baby shower. She was there to serve and assist the guests, as well as to clean up and pack up the leftover food. The food was fabulous. Tasty and beautiful to behold! Salsas and guacamole were amazing with her delicious chips. The process of ordering and deciding the menu was simple and not a bit stressful. I was able to sit back and enjoy the event. Chef Cathy was an absolute pleasure and I would recommend her services to anyone looking to enjoy a stress free event!
I had to let you know how satisfied we were with all the food you catered. We had the pulled pork, with the sweet and chipotle sauces, tender sirlion kabobs, corn on the cob, and fruit kabobs. Many of my guests commented how delicious all the food was. Chef Cathy you made it so easy for me as this was my first event being catered. the price reasonable. to relieve me from the headache of dealing with the menu was so appreciative. Many thanks, and I am keeping you in my contact list.
Hi Chef Cathy,
Thank you very much for catering our lunch event. Your food was a huge hit!!! You will definitely hear from me again, and also several others in my company plan to order from you for their events as well.

Chef Cathy and her team were fantastic. We made several last minute changes to our reception timeline (due to extreme heat during our outdoor reception) and Cathy and her team her extremely accommodating without hesitation. Plus, the food was fantastic!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!
We, employees at Agile, wanted to THANK YOU for an AMAZING lunch that you delivered to our office today. The food was great and we will be using your catering business again soon!!! Also, we will be recommending your services to others that we deal with.
Thank you sooooo much for the food today. We have PLENTY to eat for our 125 guests. Nothing but great compliments. Food was wonderful!
Our church did a women's retreat and used Chef Cathy for all of our catering for the weekend. She came up with an incredible menu. Everything was delicious! We had several women with special dietary needs and Chef Cathy was amazing to work with. We will definitely use her again and highly recommend her. Carma Kuhn
Cathy, did an outstanding job for our daughter's January 20th, 2017 wedding! From first email contact to the event, she was incredibly responsive, helpful, and accommodating. Planning a wedding from a different country, 1500 miles away, has its difficulties, but she made this aspect so easy! The food was excellent! Tasty, hot, aesthetically pleasing, absolutely perfect! Cathy and her staff, wow! Friendly, engaging, willing, warm, everyone treated our guests amazingly! We had many, many compliments on it all! I wouldn't in the least hesitate to recommend her. In fact, if you're looking for a very reasonably priced caterer, someone who pays attention to detail, who wants to please you, who provides excellent food and service, you need to call her.
Chef Cathy is awesome and will do whatever it takes to make your day great!
The service and the food is great, Chef Cathy was very easy to work with, prompt with returning calls and making sure everything was just how the Bride and Groom wanted.
Hi Cathy,I want to thank you for an outstanding job you and Jared did for my party.The food was delicious,the service was great and the girls loved being served. You haven't lost your touch.You are in the right field and the Lord has Blessed you for being a great chef.Love you to pieces. Barbara
Chef Cathy's menu selection and food were excellent. We received many compliments on how delicious everything tasted. She was very careful to accommodate the specific guests' menu requests. The only critique I have is that it could have been done more discretely but overall the guests felt honored to have their requests be taken seriously. The service was wonderful and the kitchen was left in perfect condition. Great job, Chef Cathy and staff!
I wanted to send a special thank you message to you and Jared for making our holiday dinner spectacular! You did a fantastic job that will certainly bring new business to you guys for the future as everyone kept commenting on how great the food was. Thank you so much to you both for the quick reaction.
So many of our wedding guests have complimented us on our buffet dinner!!! We knew they would enjoy it because we were blown away by the taste and hot food during the tasting. She really listened to what types of food we wanted to give us a combination of tastes to choose from. We had salmon and beef, so moist and tender. Father of the Bride couldn't stop with the compliments! Extremely good value for the price and she was helpful for suggesting two buffet stations because of our 136 guests.
Chef Cathy: The food was excellent! You did an amazing job. Thank you so much and, hopefully, we will get to use you again in the future!
Chef Cathy is the best! She and her staff did an amazing job at our wedding. Our guests were so happy with the food. Great food and great service. Just visit her for a tasting and you'll see.
Very easy to work with. Very professional and the food was great. Chef Cathy is awesome!
Chef Cathy and her team have catered various business events for me, and I cannot speak highly enough of the quality, professionalism, overall value and service with which she executes every step of the process. From planning to execution and follow-up, she is by far the BEST and my clients rave about the food each year looking forward to our next event.
Chef Cathy with Any Occasion Catering catered our Rehearsal Dinner last month. The food was delicious and a great price for everything you get! We loved the penne ala vodka especially but truly everything we ordered was very tasty and our guests told us how good it was, too. She responded promptly to our questions, as well. Would definitely recommend!!
Chef Cathy was readily available when I had questions and/or concerns. The food and servers were wonderful. We had no worries for our daughter's Big Day!!
Thank you so much for all you did to make my father-in-law's 90th birthday such a success. The residents at Buena Vida are still talking about how delicious the food was. I so appreciate all your attention to detail and just going with the flow. My father-in-law thought it was the perfect party and he can't say enough good things about how fabulous the food was. Thanks so much for everything!
I wanted to let you know Julie and I feel really fortunate to have had you cater our event. The food was so good! Literally every item was delicious! And thank you again for filling in for the bartending. The guests commented on how wonderful you were, refilling their drinks and making sure they were taken care of. That says a lot! You are so good at what you do, I would recommend you to anybody looking for catering.
Paul and Julie Mertens
Saying thank you seems insufficient for your part in making my brother's wedding day so very special. I wish I had more fitting words to express my gratitude towards you for what you did. What an incredible blessing you were to my family and especially my brother! Everyone loved the food and he very proudly made sure that they knew you made the meat entrees. As did me and the rest of my family. His day couldn't have been more perfect and you were part of the reason. To see him get the wedding he deserved was my ultimate goal and we did that! I've never seen him so very happy! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for responding to my initial email when you didn't have to and for putting your talent, time and energy into what you did for him! I know it's something I will never forget and it's something he will always remember. You will forever have a place in my family's hearts and minds!
I just wanted to Thank you for such awesome job that you did for my sister's party. Thank you the food was delicious and so plentiful. I really appreciate everything that you did for my event, it is not easy to do things from out of town and you certainly made it so simple. Everyone ask who the caterers were and I let them know as well as I gave them your business card.
Chef Cathy: I want to let you know what a success the reception was for my daughter's wedding and what a huge part of that your catered dishes were. Guests raved over the food and continued to let me know how wonderful it was. Thank you for being timely & efficient. I appreciated your help and will definitely recommend your services! ~ Tina Pierce
Just wanted to let you know that we received Rave reviews on the food! They loved the strawberry salad and the pasta salad went quickly. The sandwiches were a BIG hit. Thank you so much for your time and effort in this. We will definitely be using you again in the future.
We could not have picked a more perfect catering service. Chef Cathy and her crew went above and beyond in every aspect of service. Through our slight disorganization, rain and unique venue, Any Occasion stuck through it all like professionals, even helped in aspects that were not a part of their service to keep things flowing and moving forward. We were so fortunate to have found this service and this wonderful crew. Beyond the excellent service, we still have guests asking us to have another wedding so they can have some more of that delicious food! The entrees were amazing and for sides we had corn casserole and cashew slaw, which is still being raved about by our friends. Thank you Chef Cathy and staff for your kindness, great food and professionalism. We highly recommend them for any occasion, you will not be disappointed. We can not thank them enough for helping to make such a sacred event for us the best day of our lives!
It was such a pleasure working with Chef Cathy and her entire crew! She made the entire event stressful free! The food was amazing, especially the Prime Rib Carving Station!
It was our pleasure working with Chef Cathy. I found her in January after our initial caterer backed out on us. Chef Cathy rose to the occasion as indicative of their name "Any Occasion Catering"!. The taste testing was awesome, as was the food at the reception. I've received numerous positive comments from guest. I would highly recommend this vendor to others.
Chef Cathy worked with us closely to ensure we had exactly what we wanted for our intimate wedding dinner. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was just as outstanding! We also rented our tables, chairs and linens from her, which made the whole process so smooth and easy. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a full-service caterer.
Cathy: I wish to thank you for your catering services on Friday and express my gratutide to your team. The ladies did a wonderful job and everyone was pleased with the food and their services. I will keep your contact information for future event opportunites.
Chef Cathy was an amazing chef and an outstanding person. She was on time her food was great and everybody at our wedding loved the food. Up the Creek Farms and Any Occasion Catering made for the best day ever!
The staff did a wonderful job! Very professional and the food was excellent, some of the best Mahi I've had.
Chef Cathy is amazing! We have hired her to do our wedding coming up in 3 weeks and she has been so amazing to us. We went for our tasting a few months ago and we are going with the meat lasagna, chicken piccata, roasted green beans, scalloped potatoes and my fiancé and I were in heaven when we sampled it all. She is accommodating, polite and really makes you feel like you are hiring a friend. I recommend her to everyone and have complete faith that everyone will be swooning about our dinner at the wedding. THANK YOU CATHY! Can't wait to see you!
Chef Cathy & staff did a wonderful job for my daughters wedding. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. I would highly recommend them.

I was very happy with your service, coordination, presentation and quality of the food. You did an exceptional job and when I plan another party, I will call you again without any doubts . Many of my guests ask about you and took your name and number. It was a successful party and we had a great time. Also they commented how pleasant Debby and you were. My friends will be talking for a while about this event....
Cathy: The surprise was complete - Mother did not have a clue. Everyone was very pleased with the food choices, the presentations and taste. Thank you for helping make the party a success.
Chef: The food was a delicious success Saturday. The best we have ever had from a catering company. Please feel free to use us as a referral. Have a beautiful week!
Thank you so much for your exceptional service and your delicious food. Everything arrived on time and as promised. The food was colorful, fresh and enjoyed by everyone. I will definitely use your services again.
AMAZING!!! I contacted Chef Cathy in Dec. 2014 and planned an event for 80 Realtors for July.....She was always on top of her game. She made wonderful recommendations for our group and dealt with the many dietary restrictions. Even though our event was months away, she sent periodic reminders letting us know that she would be there for us. As we approached our event day....she handled our last minute increase from 80 to 96 persons and did not miss a beat. The food was AMAZING!!! Her staff was so well trained and PROFESSIONAL!!! I would highly recommend Chef Cathy for any event. JOB WELL DONE!!!
Chef Cathy: You touched my heart and soul with the fabulous food you prepared for my Mom's "Celebration of Life." Everyone attending raved about the food. You obviously cook with a lot of love in your heart. Thank you ever so much. Warm Regards, Denise Lapointe
Chef Cathy, Thank you for catering my event. The food was wonderful and everyone raved about it. My husband especially enjoyed the carrot cake bites. The pulled pork was very tender and tasty, the rice was flavorful, the quiches were creamy and the chicken salad croissants were fabulous! I will certainly call upon you again for my next event.
Chef Cathy: Thank you so much for making our party terrific! The food, the service AND the process of working with you from beginning to end was great! We will see you for our next party for sure. Blessings, Rick and Donna Brenner

Chef Cathy: Thank you for a wonderful Shabbat dinner last Friday night. The food was excellent!! Everyone loved it. The bread ... yummy! Joanne Allen
The event at the Exploration Tower went very well. I received many positive comments about the great service that you and your staff provided for our 2014 AFCEA Annual Banquet. You were flexible and very accommodating. I appreciate all that you and your staff did to make the evening an extreme success. Thank you, Leon Fenn, Director AFCEA Canaveral Chapter
Everything was so wonderful at the party. Everyone loved the food and you did a wonderful job matching our Mediterranean themed party! Each and every small appetizer/hors d'ouevre was very tasteful and perfect little bites! Thank you so much for your efforts towards making Sydney's Sweet 16 Perfect!
I loved working with Chef Cathy to create the perfect tropical menu and serving tablescapes. The food was incredible and the service was perfect! What a treat to enjoy the party every bit as much as the guests knowing that everything was in good hands! I have absolute confidence in her ability to deliver great food and service with absolute professionalism. The guests raved! Happy hostess I am! Excellent work Chef
Thanks, Chef Cathy, you food was superb, well prepared, seasoned and warm, as if it just came from the oven at home. And the response from our guests was overwhelming in appreciation for a most enjoyable plate of "home cooked food." Cathy, you and your servers are to be congratulated for providing not only good and tasty food but your services were prompt and with loving care. I will be happy to provide my recommendation to any of your future customers.
Chef Cathy and her staff provided excellent food and service for our parents' 70th Anniversary! The choice of caterers was excellent! Chef Cathy was in control the whole time, well organized, she gave timely and thorough directions to her staff. Food was excellent and the way it was set up was very efficient. Chef Cathy knows how to handle a large group and is proactive in helping the event run smoothly. She is amazing! Just a couple of days before the event we realized that one of our guests needed a special diet. Chef Cathy graciously came to the rescue. AND, made sure she could recognize the special guest as she came through the serving line. Excellent food and service!!! Thank you Chef Cathy! We're keeping Chef Cathy's phone number for Dad's 100th birthday! Don, Karen, Jane and Nancy
Chef Cathy was absolutely amazing! I was having a small intimate wedding reception and she did a wonderful job! When I called her, I knew I found the right person. The food was delicious and Chef Cathy and Chef Mike personally attended to my guests. Everyone was raving about the food and how great they were. I would highly recommend!
Chef Cathy came highly recommended by a few friends of mine. So, when it was time to plan my retirement celebration, I knew The Christian Culinarian would cater the event. She was a delight to work with, very up beat and excited for you. She got me started with menu selections, but her website is full of a variety of delicious entrees, appetizers and dessert options. She was very patient as I changed my mind several times before settling on our party day menu. Along the way, she helped me stay within budget and even gave me tips to save. On party day, she delivered the food and arrange it for us, making it easy for me to focus on getting ready to greet my guests. The food was incredible! Everything was hot and fresh--the hash browns, quiche and grilled chicken salad croissants were among our favorites. There was plenty of food to go around. The party was a hit!!!! I had about 40 of my closest friends, family and neighbors over to celebrate with me that day. And above all, everyone raved about how good the food was and they all wanted to take some home if they could. Thanks to Chef Cathy, I was able to relax and enjoy myself. It was truly a day to remember! God bless you and thank you for helping me with this big event!
Chef Cathy and her team are awesome! They have supported LOVE, Inc. with all we do and she always delivers fresh tasty food that is professionally prepared and presented. Chef Cathy is friendly and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend The Christian Culinarian for your event!
In March 2014, I planned a 50th surprise birthday for my husband. There was no doubt who I would want to help me with the catering; The Christian Culinarian, Chef Cathy Lawrence. Chef Cathy is professional and a talented caterer. She has catered luncheons for my husband many times. If you are looking for fabulous food, a professional staff and happy guests, contact Chef Cathy. Thank you Chef for your assistance with Pat's birthday party; your dishes were the crowd favorites, but I knew that would be the case. Excellent job as always.
Warmly, Jill Flatley
Cathy and her staff are so great to work with! Always on time and very accommodating to our frequent changes with catering requests. Our staff specifically requests this company for our catering needs because the food is wonderful!
I am a pharmaceutical rep who has been using Chef Cathy for over a year now. She is the best! No request too small, no request too large. She has even put a lunch together for an office for me when I forgot to order one until 8 am the same day! Her food is excellent and my clients love getting her lunches! She has never made an error or been late with one of my lunches.
I used The Christian Culinarian for both of my daughters' wedding receptions. Both times the service and food were excellent. We were able to choose a menu from quite a selection of different choices. They provide the entire spectrum of services to choose from: linens, silverware, tables, chairs, drinks, food, waitstaff, bartenders and anything else you can think of! Polite, courteous, extremely competitive pricing, full course menu choices. You can go as large or as small, as complex or as simple in the choices as you like. They can do anything--and they do it better than anyone else. I would definitely use The Christian Culinarian again in the future and highly recommend everyone use them as well! I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Christian Culinarian!!
I was so thankful to Chef Cathy for the amazing brunch that she catered for my daughter's b bridal shower. We ordered several quiche, caprese salad, chicken salad, chocolate covered strawberries and mini tarts. Our absolute favorite was the salmon platter with capers, cream cheese and fresh bread. I found the food to be fresh and delicious. The quality and quantity of the food provided was above my expectation. The price of the food was also very reasonable! I could not be more satisfied! I would highly recommend The Christian Culinarian to ANYONE for their catering needs. I look forward to our next catered event with The Christian Culinarian!!
Dear Chef Cathy: I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you did yesterday to help me in setting up and getting the food ready for Sam's party. You went above and beyond and for that, I am so grateful! And the food - let me tell you - we received so many compliments on everything you made! It was all delicious and I'm so glad I listened to your suggestions regarding quantity. The quantities were generous and presented beautifully. Thank you again and I would not hesitate to use your services over and over again for future needs, both for personal, business and West Shore PTA needs. YOU ARE WONDERFUL!
Chef Cathy: Thank you for furnishing the food items for our May 3 Kentucky Derby Party, as well as my May 15 Tennis Club gathering. It was (as my 4 year old granddaughter would say) AWESOME!!! Nancy
Chef Cathy: Working with you to assist us with the planning of our wedding ceremony and reception was fabulous. From the beginning you were great in the planning process and on the big day, the ceremony was elegant and the food was fabulous. All of our guests raved. The service provided was outstanding and we would not hesitate to refer future business to you. Thank you for everything!
Cathy: Thanks for providing the meal for Darlene's Birthday party. This is the 2nd time you have served us and both times have been great. Michael and Dan provided great food and even better service. Using the china sets a nice table. Many blessings as you provide such great faith based service in our community.
The Christian Culinarian is my first catering choice. The food is always wonderful and fresh. From the sandwich platters to hot food specialties, you can't go wrong. Chef Cathy is a pleasure to work with. Thank you Chef Cathy for ALL you do for us.

Chef Cathy: Just wanted to take a moment to let you know on behalf of myself and the PTA how much we appreciate you catering our teacher conference dinner.

Chef Cathy, I can't tell you how well our event went with you behind our dinner. I didnt' have to worry about the food and could enjoy myself, while my son promoted from cub scout to boy scout. As always, the Committee and I received rave reviews on the food. You always come through. The food was plentiful and delicious! Thanks again for making our event be a HUGE success.

Chef Cathy and her team catered a day long training conference with over 200 attendees. The food was deliciuos,the prices were competitive and the participants were very pleased. The cookies were a hit and they had to bring more in - but 20 minutes after we requested more cookies, the cookies arrived and were devoured.
Dear Chef Cathy: Just wanted to let you know how very much we all enjoyed the lunches you provided for our Discovering Mary Day on January 25. The sandwiches were delicious and all we heard were rave reviews! Believe it or not, I had saved my cookie - and rediscovered it yesterday - yep - it was still fresh and good! Looking forward to working together again in the future. All God's blessings, Laura
Chef Cathy: Your food was excellent ... all who attended the Afterglow really enjoyed the variety. Thank you so much! Tim Hanrahan
Recently Genesis House hosted a first time event entitled "A Genesis of Art" and contacted Chef Cathy of The Christian Culinarian, LLC. From the first telephone conversation, it was evident that she was knowledgeable, professional and felt very vested in the success of our event. She guided us on the appropriate food to serve and assisted us in the decor of the tables. Being a first time event, she patiently adjusted our order as we adjusted our plans. The evening was a fabulous success due in a large part to the delicious food. The staff was efficient and accommodating. There is no doubt that The Christian Culinarian, LLC will be the caterer at our next event!
Hello Chef Cathy! Just wanted to thank you so much for the Wonderful food you made and the beautiful decorations for our wedding! I was so happy with the way everything turned out! The decorations were completely spot on and just gorgeous. I was so glad that planning from a different state over the phone and through emails with you came out just the way I wanted it to! You really set the tone and made it warm and beautiful. The servers were very nice and so quick at everything they did. I really appreciated that. The food was wonderful and everyone was talking about how juicy the filet mignon was! Thank you Cathy!
Chef Cathy: What a lovely evening we had with our friends and your food and treats were the "hit" of the night! So many compliments. Our special thanks to you. Merry Christmas and God Bless. Larry and Jan
I would like to say THANK YOU from myself and the practice for recommending our last venue, as well as the professionalism of yourself and staff.
We have used Chef Cathy for several years and she has never disappointed us with anything. We have catered lunches, to catered dinners. Everything from the food to the staff has been a pleasure. The food is always prepared fresh and delicious! We will continue to use them and recommend their service to everyone. We will see you in the New Year! Have a very Merry Christmas!
Dear Chef Cathy: We wanted to share with you the great reviews for the fantastic job you did for us at our recent Holiday gathering. All of the food looked fantastic and tasted delicious. We are still getting raves from our friends about the food. You made the event so much fun for our family as well. Instead of worrying about the food, the set up, the shopping, the cooking, the presentation, the replenishment, the clean up, etc., we were able to just relax and enjoy our guests, knowing that all of the details were in your capable hands. Thank you again for making our holiday so merry and bright!
We just finishing your pot roast, it was excellent! We have a setting on our microwave that reads "dinner plate." The microwave runs on and off for 2 1/2 minutes and then instructs you to cover the dish for a minute or two; it works perfectly for your dishes. I will be preparing an order for next week and anticipate being a regular customer. Thank you!
Ordering the chef prepare meals from The Christian Culinarian has been fantastic. The food is great and so convenient. It is such a relief to not have to worry about dinner anymore. Just put in the microwave and it's done. Chef Cathy is very responsive and easy to work with. Thank you!
Dear Cathy and The Christian Culinarian Team:
We have used your services twice and both times you exceeded our expectations. One of the reasons we were drawn to your website, without any recommendations from previous clients, was the fact that you are a Christian based company. After reading your website and learning that 10% of any bill is given to a charity of the month, we wanted to try your services. What a blessing!
Professionalism, expertise, courtesy, helpfulness in choice selection and "on time" organization and delivery, not to mention the totally awesome dishes we ordered, you were exceptional! From appetizers to desserts, formal to informal gatherings, theme oriented or not (such as our recent "Friends-Giving Celebration" at which we served your spiced punch), you have not been disappointing. Additionally, our guests loved it all, asking for your business cards on the way home, and it does not surprise us. You are a blessing in so many ways to so many people.
We will call the Christian Culinarian whenever the occasions arises without hesitation. You are just that exceptional! Thank you and God bless.
Gary and Eileen Guida
Our family loved your food! It was fresh and bundled in separate containers so we could eat when we felt like it. Having crazy schedules during the week made it so simple. The food is fresh and there are a number of items to choose from. We will definitely use you on a weekly basis. Plus, for the cost of the meals, it's cheaper than buying the groceries and time saving because we don't have to cook! We spent more quality family time together! Thanks to Chef Cathy!
Our wedding day was so very special, and Chef Cathy made it even sweeter! Our guests LOVED the food and are still taking about it 3 months later. We absolutely loved working with her and her staff ... they were such a joy to spend an evening with! I just can't gush enough about what a beautiful reception they helped create. Thank you so very much to The Christian Culinarian for making our wedding day perfectly complete!
Chef Cathy: Thank you so much for helping make our day so special. Our guests ranted and raved about the food! It was fantastic and I will spread the word about you and your wonderful service! Angie

Dear Chef Cathy,
Working with Chef Cathy was a great experience. The food was delicious and her staff was very professional. She was very supportive of my vision for my wedding. Chef Cathy was flexible and handled all my last mintute changes very gracefully. It was truely a blessing to have Christian Culinarian LLC a part of my wedding. I also rented chairs and an arch-- both items were great.
All of our guests raved about the food we served at our seminar. It was fresh, different, and delicious. Her desserts are to die for.......brownies, key lime tarts, cheesecake. We had both hot and cold appetizers with the spinach capae tartlets and mini crabcakes being the guest favorites. Definitely will use Chef Cathy for all of our seminars and employee events going forward.
