I do look forward to working with you again in the future.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you gain for an unbelievable experience last night. Wow – dinner was fabulous! I have a few years of experience working in the restaurant industry, and I must say dinner last night was one of the best I have enjoyed!
Thank you again for everything – you both truly are a pleasure to work with.
We wanted to thank you so much for helping to make our evening Friday such a success.
The food? To die for, every morsel of every bite. The staff? Wonderful, so pleasant, easy going, and resourceful (even able to make the meagre tea/coffee (ie stolen coffee packs from hotels) look appealing). Really, everything was perfect. (Please thank Cherry for us too).

We were so pleased with your work for us on Hernando Island. Every meal was wonderful, inventive, flavorful and visually pleasing. The service complimented each meal perfectly. We would love to have you to Pebble Beach to cater our next event.
Emme Lee - ZeD/CBC
Thanks again! Everything was fantastic. Those cucumbers were a huge hit, same with the skewers. And I only sampled one of the pastries which was very good, by the time I came back later, they were all gone! So, thanks again, the whole spread was delicious, and everything beautiful. Can't wait til we have another party!

I just wanted to thank you guys for the incredible job that you did catering my party. We were wowed and so were our guests. I have had a lot of people ask who did the catering. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Cherry, Andy and Claire too. We were never without food or drink! I hope to have another opportunity to use your services in the future.

Chef Claire out did herself! The barbeque was great and I think it went off well.

I just want to let you know that the catering this morning was outstanding. The breakfast bite selection was amazing and I heard tons of compliments. The staff were great – I’m sure they will tell you, but it was pretty challenging for them. They had to navigate around gear cases, black-out drapes, lighting on the floor. They did it with smiles and were extremely professional.
Thank you very much – it was a pleasure getting to know you and your team. I’m sure it won’t be the last time we work together.

I just wanted to thank you for making our Cambie Kitchen Event with Wolf Blass a great success! We could not have done it without the expertise of Catlin, who was excellent to work with. We got a lot of interest for your spring rolls, which made it a natural seguay to pointing people to your storefront location on the back of our handout. Including recipes was also a great idea, as people tried the items, were wowed, and then took the handout with them without much prompting! A great event overall…thanks for all your help and expertise!
Shirley Claire Williams
I just wanted to let you know how much we LOVED your food last night at Beth's! I ate WAY too much, but didn't care at all about the calorie intake as it was all very well worth the experience. The preserved lemon in the orzo salad was pure genious!!!! And the caramelized onion, quite heavenly with all the crunchy sugar bits. Loved it all. We'll definitely keep your card handy and on file...
I got home to find Lyall absolutely over the moon with the way the whole evening turned out, and he said everyone scraped up their plates, so I guess he is right in saying it was a huge success. The fragrance from the sauce for the shortribs was teasing me as I walked through the house and up to bed; it put me in mind of the time I made a mole sauce a few decades ago, in the density and the layers of it. And that grilled cheese & duck - omg! let's do THAT again. Now I am really looking forward to the next party, and may start pushing the agenda a bit. I hope you had a chance to introduce yourself, but I know that can be difficult to do once everything is under way.
It was really great to walk out the door with such confidence, and to get such good feedback afterwards, and am willing to bet Lyall eventually shifts a lot of his boys nights from restaurants to home. The food, what I saw and hear about, was divine, the service impeccable, and the kitchen so tidy I could hardly believe itr. Just sorry we left so many animal and furniture obstructions in your way.
On another occasion, Susan commented...
I want to have that fish and lobster sauce every day for a year! What did you crust the fish with – the colour makes me think a fine cornmeal or cornflour Anyway – the whole meal and service was a complete triumph. But I am struggling with a lemon bar addiction that is growing rapidly out of control, so I bet I find time to do a drive-by purchase. That truly was a superb meal and I am really looking forward to the next one. You MUST charge top dollar for the 4 days at Whistler – sauces like that one, and your shortrib sauce are priceless.
Maria and Dan Fontana
Thanks so much for everything yesterday – the food, service, etc. was all excellent – everyone commented on the tastiness and presentation of the food. Your presence was also so appreciated … so professional, attentive and non-obtrusive … you just took care of everything! Thank you, thank you. Will definitely call on Chef Claire again.
The wedding reception you orchestrated was absolutely exceptional, Tammara. Many thanks to all your staff who demonstrated their efficiency and professional social skills in distributing Claire's wonderful food fare. We had so many guests 'gushing' all evening with how tasty the food was, how regularly their needs were attended to and how marvellous it was the way you were able to spread the services to all areas of Aberthau. Of course, many left with your business card or other details.
Personally, I could not believe how calm you are when in the throes of action that really had to happen rather quickly with Aberthau's 3 - 5 pm set up time. You just seemed to be there when audio-visual, candles, registry and gift tables and food in the library topics arose. As for the latter, I knew I could answer for Kristin in terms of 'fine to feed the 'kids' with the adults' but I didn't take that any further and was quite surprised when it was the minister who announced to all before the wedding ceremony that the kids would be fed in the library!! But as I said, you roll with the punches and our family had a great appreciation for your ability to do that.
Sharon and Dave
Chef Claire and Team. Thank you once again for doing your (big) part in making our day a beautiful and tasty one. Words on paper won't do justice to how we truly feel about your contribution and assistance!
Dale and Tanya
What an amazing job you did catering our wedding. It was nice not to have to worry about anything,we were in good hands. The food was fantastic and enjoyed by all. It was a perfect day!
Lori and Peter
You have a distinctive style both personal and with your food. Again, we can't thank you enough for such superb food and for such fun and excellent staff. It was the best party we'd ever been to! Thanks again!
Diane and Ted
We would like to extend our appreciation to you and your staff on your excellent service and the quality of food you provided for our wedding. We felt our wedding day was perfect and a good portion of the credit goes to you.
Our guests raved about the food and the ability of your servers to be on top of everything at all times. Our guests are still talking about the fabulous salmon you prepared and several have asked for your recipe. I'm not sure how you managed to make it all seem effortless even when the stove malfunctioned.
Please convey our thanks to your staff who were so pleasant and professional and helped to make our wedding day special and hassle free.
Holly and Peter
Thanks for doing such and excellent job for our wedding. We received many compliments including "the best wedding food I have ever had."
A huge thanks to you and Natalie and all your crew for a fabulous wedding feast. We had a fabulous time and felt very well cared for.
Nana and Anthony
Thank you so much for the wonderful food and service you provided. We got so many compliments from our guests on how great the food was and also how smooth and competent all the staff were. Please pass on to Alain for us as well for all his exceptional service. We all also appreciated all your suggestions and extra help with all the details and fine touches that made both the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception so enjoyable.
Jamie and Linda
Thanks again for making our "surprise" wedding so beautiful. I got so many compliments on how exceptional the food service and presentation were and I loved the artistic flair you have. One of my aunts actually said if she were to plan a wedding again she would do it exactly the way we did.
Andrea and Doug
Just a note to thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding. You truly went above and beyond to ensure that we had a magical day. Your food was delicious and all our guests commented on how great the food was.
Your 'take charge' attitude was great and I knew that I could leave it all in your capable hands. All your tips, advice and decorating ideas were invaluable.We couldn't have been happier! Your servers were just great as well; very professional yet not stuffy.Thank you again for all that you did to make our wedding special, memorable and yummy. It was lovely working with you.
Helen and Doug Pettipiece
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the wonderful wedding reception for our daughter, Tori, and our new son in law, Scott. As my husband and I mingled with the guests we were continually congratulated on our choice of menu. We cannot take any credit for that but I know that Tori was very happy with everything on the day,which in turn made us happy parents.
Claire and Gordon Faniel
Just a little note to thank you for the excellent service you provided for Michael and Kristin's wedding reception. Our guests and family raved about the delicious food and everyone commented on your friendly and wonderful staff. In short it was great and we surely will recommend you to our friends.
Words cannot begin to express my deep appreciation for everything you did to make Malcom's 60th birthday party a marvelous success.From the scrumptious menu to the beautiful way things were displayed to your own calm professional manner...all was perfection! You really are the BEST!
After a second occasion, Laverne wrote...
Again - everything was fabulous! Those yummy crepes were literally inhaled with happy gasps of omigod, omigod. The veggies were deliciously perfect, and looked so beautiful (the few moments they stayed on the platter!). Scones, bread, fruit - such a nice balance for such a memorable birthday brunch. My family crooned praise to you. Thank you again Claire - I look forward seeing your creative juices in action again.
I wanted to thank you for my mothers 89th birthday dinner. Everything you prepared turned out great. Once again you outdid yourself!
And another time, Marilyn commented...
Thanks so much for making Mom's 90th birthday a very special day. Your food and service was excellent.
Thank you so much for the great job you did for my mother-in-law's 75th birthday party. She had a wonderful time and everyone thought the food was fabulous. It was great that we could just relax and enjoy the party. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Debbie and James
Thanks for making Jared's 21st birthday such a huge success! (After the beautiful job you did for us at Brynn and Graham's wedding, we knew it would be.) From the wonderful food to the attentive staff, the event was memorable.
Thank you so much for helping us throw my mother-in-law's birthday party. It was a smashing success. Everyone is still giving us compliments on the food, presentation and service.
Thank you so much for the wonderful dinner you prepared for us and our guests. The food and service were excellent and we would love to do it again sometime.
Thank you for catering the lunch on August 1st. The food was so delicious and so beautifully served. Many, many thanks for making it such a great lunch.
I must tell you that I thought dinner was outstanding-not that I would expect less from you. The stuffing for the loin was outstanding and the "jus" was the crowning glory. As always your food was splendid and so many compliments. Again,many thanks Claire-you and the food make a splendid pair.
I wanted to thank you so much for cooking the wonderful food for Saturday night...you out-did yourself! It was truly magnificent, and we and all our guests were truly treated to a celebratory feast!!
J Donald Mawhinney
The family boxing day dinner that you catered for us, once again, was delicious and enjoyed by all. The duck was particularly spectacular!
Please note on your calender that I would like you to prepare our family dinner again this year.
Dr. Michelle Tan
A BIG THANK YOU for helping me pull off the party of the century and for making it such a great success.
(I still can’t believe that we managed to keep it a surprise, the entire time!!)
How you guys managed to pull everything together and magically transform the setting in one hour I don’t know; and not only that, the clean up...I didn’t need to do anything after you guys (and Sherrie) left!
Everyone had a great time (and so did I coz I didn’t have to do any work!!!) and absolutely LOVED the food.
(Still dreaming about the salmon burger...)
You have an AWESOME (tried to come up w/ another word that is more than awesome but can’t think of one) group of staff and again, comments from guests about how professional, capable, helpful, and just simply amazing they are. Special thanx to Sherrie for staying till midnight.....
Did we finish all the food? Steve was very pleased that there was a big slab of brownies left...he told me he was so stunned and thrilled that he didn’t get to try some of the appys. Oh well, too bad, the girls tried to push him to eat and he didn’t take them up on it. Next time, I’m ordering more of what I like :)
The catering was absolutely marvelous--delicious food, uncomplicated and gracious service--I could not have asked for more. Sherrie was great as well. I would have to say that we were delighted with everything. Now, after that fullsome praise, do you want to let me in on the secret of how you did the beef tenderloin with rosemary? My son-in-law is still raving about it.
Sorry it has taken me so long to tell you how fabulous the party was. We have had incredible comments about the food, decor, staffing, everything. The event was seamless from start to finish. All of the people that came that you had contracted with, said you were the best in the business to work with but I already knew that. Set up and take was great. The tent was magnificent and the family style concept was perfect, although it took me 2 hours to do the seating plan it was worth it.
It was like watching a perfect 10 in the Olympics. It looks so easy because you are just that good.
Thanks again and say a special thanks to Tammara. She was diligent in everything she did and was a pleasure to work with. The food and everything was perfect. Thanks for helping with our double celebration. We had to push the last people out at 2:00am.
Natalie Van Eyk
Every piece of food was like butter in our mouths we were both very impressed.
We had an opportunity this past summer to go on a cruise with a friend of ours who spoiled us rotten by giving us the cruise as a wedding gift. The cruise was on a boat with the Seabourn Yacht Group, very high end and on this trip I ate some of the best food I've ever tasted, we sailed around Croatia and Italy and I must have gained about 25 lbs just eating and drinking. Loved it.
Your dinner you made for us was right up there with the food we ate on the boat if not better. I don't think there is a higher compliment from two very big food-lovers. We were trying to pick our favourite thing and couldn't it was all just too good.
Thank you so much Chef Claire. You made my husbands' 40th birthday.
