Steve Munday was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. The menu was incredible and my family is still raving about it weeks later. I booked Creative Cuisines in the Fall for a Summer wedding. I'm not sure how quickly their schedule fills, but if you're thinking about using them, I wouldn't hesitate to get in touch and at least get penciled in. Steve gets really busy during wedding season, and for good reason!

About two months before the wedding, my (now) husband and I took about 90 minutes and talked through the chef stations and cocktail hour with Steve. He has great sample menus to draw ideas from and he's open to trying things like family recipes or other special dishes. He was also really mindful of our budget and transparent about pricing. I thought the pricing was more than fair for the quality of food, the variety, and the phenomenal service.

I planned this wedding from 1000 miles away. In fact, it had been decades since either my husband or I had attended a wedding, so we really felt clueless. Steve made planning so much easier. He's very responsive to emails and calls. Steve got the rental company to send me photos of the tablecloths so I could approve them from afar, and they ended up looking perfect. He made a seating layout for us and was really flexible when I wanted to change it. I also need to give a shoutout to Patty, who makes everything run smoothly and on time.

Creative Cuisines is a great company, and I can't thank them enough for just the amount of care and detail they put into the wedding.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Chef Steve Munday, owner of Creative Cuisines, when planning our son's rehearsal dinner in Williamsburg, VA. He came highly recommended by our wedding planner and in the reviews we read. We secured Chef Steve's services early in the planning process as we were aware that he would book quickly. Due to our schedule and the fact that we live in Northern Virginia we didn't actually meet Chef Steve in person until the evening of the rehearsal dinner. This said he did an amazing job walking us through all the steps necessary to plan the evening through phone conversations and email. In our early conversations he did a excellent job getting an idea of what we wanted for the evening and gave us suggestions as how to best get our desired outcome. Chef Steve helped us to plan a traditional rehearsal dinner for approximately 80 guests to include a full bar, passed Hors d'oeuvres, salad, plated dinner, a custom made dessert and boxed truffles for each guests. On June 5, 2015 we arrived at the William and Mary Alumni House venue and met Chef Steve and his great staff. As with all previous contacts he was gracious, professional, and left us at ease to simply enjoy the evening as nothing other than guests. Every aspect of the evening to include the food and service was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better overall experience and we continue to receive compliments from the guests in attendance. We would definitely use Chef Steve again.

Unparalleled food! Chef Steve prepared a wedding buffet for our 100 guests which was delicious, beautifully presented, and locally sourced. Not to be missed are the Buttermilk Biscuits with Edwards' Surry Ham, the Crispy Sweet Potato Pancakes topped with Chutney, the Stuffed Chicken Breast, the Carolina Shrimp & Grits, and the Corn Pudding! The food was prepared on-site so was the perfect temperature for the dish. His staff was attentive with one staff member dedicated to the Bride & Groom. Definitely go for the tasting he offers. You will see how knowledgeable he is about Virginia cuisine and how much he cares about the food he prepares.

Chef Steve at Creative Cuisine in Williamsburg did an outstanding job on our wedding! He took care of every detail. The display of hors devours was phenomenal. And the lamb chops were to die for! They were all the rave of the cocktail hour. A friend who attended our wedding, has since become a lamb lover after never having it before! Chef Steve is personable and talented. The dinner service for 120 plated dinners ran smoothly and the food was served hot. I highly recommend Chef Steve at Creative Cuisine as your caterer if you want to enjoy high quality food and service that your guests will talk about for a long time. Thanks Chef Steve!! Ann Marie & Allison

Chef Steve had catered both my brother and my sister's weddings, so when it came time to plan my wedding reception it was a no-brainer to book him. Chef Steve is so responsive, professional, and a pleasure to work with. The food was outstanding. If we had to do it all over again we would absolutely have Creative Cuisines cater for us.

A Letter Written to Chef Steve Munday – October, 2014

Dear Chef Steve,
My husband often makes fun of me because when I am excited or overjoyed I will use words in triplicate. Well, the New Orleans style menu you prepared for my son’s reception at the W&M Alumni House deserves more then one set of three.
The wedding guests ran the gamut in food preferences and experiences i.e. foodies and food novices, vegetarians, vegans, meat and potato lovers, those with food allergies and so on. My initial concern was how was the bride and groom’s vision of bringing a taste of New Orleans to Williamsburg going to accommodate the range of guest tastes. Well, Chef Steve, you did it!
There were food selections that each guest could find familiarity and comfort with and food to take a leap and be adventurous with. (Mamaw, for example, was among several guests who had never tasted catfish before and quite enjoyed it.) Everyone’s plate was filled – some more then once. What variety, how delicious, try this it is incredible are among the numerous praises you received, Chef Steve. Several comments were also given on how in some wedding menus vegetable dishes are often an after thought but not so at your table. It was voiced that they were made with care and the results were very tasty.
So, thank you, thank you, thank you Chef Steve for assisting in making our children’s reception a success.
Sincerely,
Phyllis and Kenneth

Hosted an outdoor rehearsal dinner for our son and his fiancé. Initially we weren’t sure what we wanted but knew: a) we were dealing with vegetarians in addition to carnivores, and b) it needed to offer an alternative to the simultaneously planned wedding reception the next night. Calm, encouraging without the constant “up-sell’ pressure, Steve spent a LOT of time before the event talking things through and offering attainable make-it-better suggestions. Unlike some in our wedding adventure, this guy returns calls! Knowing we had polarized meat/non-meat eaters, he provided a cross selection of appetizers (incredible avocado salsa in there with lots of other choices) with the cocktail hour. He paced everything perfectly and transitioned to dinner stations with (on the right side) varied vegetarian dishes including a moussaka and rice/squash dish, fingerling potatoes and salad options and (on the left) a full up Southern Pulled Pork BBQ with delicious slaw, corn pudding, and medallioned chicken breasts stuffed with spinach/sundried tomato/ cheese that people pretty much fought over. We heard nothing but complements about the food: the variety, the way and temperature presented. I used the precious few remaining left-overs to bribe a few guys into helping me deconstruct the tents and tables later that weekend (a smart move). He KNEW how to size that crowd and have just the right amounts of everything. Most important to me, his support staff is OUTSTANDING. The crew showed up just at the time they said they would and set up the outside venue. Showtime: Patty was always where you needed her, discreetly checking with us to make sure things were just as we wanted them and moving along at our pace. Also a wonderful bar tender (thanks Janet!). Staff ensured our tables, linens, dishes, etc., were perfect. Best of all, we were able to forget about all the logistics and just enjoy the night. No surprises. No disappointments. Could not have gone better. Amazing.

Owner and Head Chef Steve Munday did an amazing job on my wedding. He worked really hard to make a wonderful and diverse menu at a reasonable price. My family is not the easiest to please, and both my mother and father were beyond pleased with the kindness and helpfulness that Creative Cuisines provided. The food was delicious and everything looked beautiful. They made the whole process (which is kind of scary) a lot easier on all of us. We really appreciate everything that they did to make my big day a success. Thanks again!

Chef Steve did it again!! This is the second wedding that he did for my family and it was just as tasty and beautiful as the first wedding. Chef Steve and his staff are warm hearted good people with quality service. Chef Steve designed the menu to fit me and my husband. I had my wedding at a venue that needed a great deal of work and Chef Steve was with me and my family the night before the wedding helping to assure that things were in place for our big day. Me and my husband enjoyed his food after the wedding in the honeymoon suit as he had packed a container which had many of the food that we had not got a chance to eat during the reception. I highly recommend Creative Cuisines to any bride and groom. Our experience was amazing and our guest are still talking about many of the foods that he had cooked.
