Quotes from some of our clients and guests

Kristine, I’ve been getting loads of messages raving about the food as well as about the people making and serving the food. So – to all of you – for nailing what I was looking for, for your spirits and good vibes from well before the wedding night through Monday morning, and for your delicious food, THANK YOU from both of us.  This wedding would not have been the same and we believe would not have been as magical without your presence and fingerprints on nearly every part from start to finish.  We think of you all often and still are so grateful we got to have you as part of our end of summer festivities.  We’re still full of gratitude for all of you. ~ Christine & Scott


On behalf of cast and crew of Bodies, Rest and Motion, I would like to thank you… we were especially pleased that you were able to handle this huge group with such elegance. ~Joel Castelberg, Producer


Thank you so much for all the time, energy and love that went into preparing our wedding meals…Everyone’s taste buds were delighted and people are still talking about the food ~Kenny & Sandra


Thanks once again for the great party.  We appreciated so much all the extra effort you made… helping us find the least expensive rate in so many matters.  And of course, for letting us change our minds so much! ~Kelly & Graham

The party was beyond a success – it was everything I wanted it to be and much was thanks to Kristine, Tamara and the crew.  They were efficient, charming and just delightful.  The food was excellent, plentiful even with the extra mouths that showed up along the way.  I can’t think of one thing that could have been done better.  I won’t hesitate to recommend Gallery of Food, and when I think of another celebration to plan, you’ll be the first ones I call.  My heartfelt thanks to all. ~Pat


Everyone I’ve spoken to after our wedding has commented (without being prompted) how great the food at our wedding was.  It was definitely superb, and more importantly memorable! Thanks again for your hard work! ~Kristin


It was so nice to be the one who received all the praise (on your behalf) for the delicious food.  Because so many attendees commented on the quality of the food and presentation, I was able to pass on your name to a few interested clients.  In the meantime, I will make it a point to continue spreading the news of the superb and cost effective services you provide. Thanks again… ~Jay
