I used her again at Christmas for a holiday gathering at my home. Katy provided several delicious hors d'oeuvres arranged on her lovely silver and crystal platters. It was a fun evening and my guests were very pleased.

As a minister, I've worked with several brides who used Katy for their receptions. The comments I consistently hear is that the food is well-thought-out and delicious and that her staff is prompt, respectful, and friendly. That has been my experience as well.

Most recently my church sponsored a wine tasting and small plate dinner benefit for a local charity. I asked Katy to be our chef and the evening was a great success.

In February I used Katy's Catering to make some romantic picnic baskets for a Valentine's Day party I hosted. She did a beautiful job with an adorable presentation and as expected, the dinner and dessert were delicious!

I hope this gives you some insight into Katy's Catering.

Additionally, and I don't know if she mentioned it, but she also has access to some fabulous solo and group musicians for parties and events. She's lived here forever and her contacts for everything from party and event decor to party rentals to venue locations to florists is amazing!!


Bought a Thanksgiving dinner for a needy family...OMG what a feast it was!

Have sampled lots of food prepared by Ms Katie and crew...DELISH!!!

Only a taste and you will be hooked! Keep up the good work
