Recommendation

Betty Little recommends Parties by Pat.

We were so impressed with the job Parties by Pat did for our dinner party at our home on September 10. Pat met with me in person a week before the dinner and we finalized the menu. He was very open to changing the menu options We discussed the menu, the presentation and even the dishes that the food would be served in. He was very thorough and you knew without a doubt that he understood food and, more importantly, understood his clients' needs. I have been to catered dinner parties before so I was able to compare other experiences with this one. I can say, without any doubt, that Parties by Pat is professional, down to earth, and downright delicious. Pat made a couple of different appetizers to serve with pre-dinner drinks Dinner was served right on time and the guests enjoyed every morsel. We finished the meal with a beautiful dessert. At the end of the evening, Pat left our kitchen sparkling clean and he even packaged up some leftovers for us. It was such a treat to have Pat take care of the cooking, serving and cleanup. We just sat back and enjoyed our evening with our friends. In fact we have asked Pat to cater for our next dinner party next week! We found Pat's prices very reasonable and worth every penny. I highly recommend Parties by Pat. Thank you Pat for a job well done. Your love of cooking and food is very evident.
