KUDOS FROM OUR FANS - What Our Friends are Saying

Dear Richard, "Cooking for Friends" is such a wonderful idea!  You make it possible for those wanting an intimate gathering to have a special "gastronomically fantastic" celebration in the setting of their choice.  (Perhaps a beach for our 75th??)  Richard, you too, are quite special... the ultimate chef whose personality makes the event more than just a meal.  And you are the show!  Thank you for making our 50th anniversary special in a way we hadn't imagined.  Marsha and Clarence  

Dear Richard, Thank you for a wonderfully prepared dinner for David last night - "Cooking for Friends" is absolutely right!  We love you  - David and Dianna

Hi Richard,  We continue to get compliments and positive feedback on how good the food was.  I really appreciate your flexibility and willingness to work with our other caterers.  Thank you also for taking time to go over the menu with such detail and for making me my “special” meal.  Your staff was incredibly helpful and friendly as well.  It was a beautiful day…thanks so much for helping it turn out as well as it did!  Heather & Matt
