I worked with Food For Thought Catering for a gathering of 100 people. Every step of the process was easy and professionally handled. The best part was the food! It was fresh and beautifully prepared and served. Everyone in attendance raved about the quality with many going back for seconds. My advise when looking for a caterer is don't look at anyone except Food For Thought.

I know it sounds weird, and even risky, to say I booked a caterer BEFORE tasting the food, but I did. From the minute I found an ad for Gina's company, Food for Thought catering and read her website, I just had this feeling...it was the pictures of her food, the company name, the glowing reviews, the way she shared information about herself...it all made me think, "I want to taste this person's food." My first meeting with Gina lasted over two hours and I left feeling like I had not only met a great chef, but a really good human being. In fact, I put the deposit down to book Gina after having a tasting with a different catering company. Their food was good, but I just knew that Gina would put her heart, soul, and personality into every detail of our wedding. Gina and Mary worked with me to design (and then redesign after I had a bit of time to think about the original plan) a menu for our wedding that was all appetizers. Gina took our love of sushi, spice, Italian and Asian flavors, and a genuine love of good food and created an amazing menu all while keeping our budget in mind. Gina provided so much more than food and service- she helped me with linen ordering, alcohol quantities, and floor plans. Gina was quick to respond to my texts, emails, and phone calls. She really helped to make what began as an overwhelming task in to an enjoyable situation. She calmed my nerves and gave her honest, professional opinion when I had questions. On our wedding day, Gina and Mary and the rest of the Food for Thought catering staff prepared, set up, and served absolutely delicious food in plentiful quantities. We had a few dietary restrictions, but everything was clearly labeled or explained by the staff in order to make the food a good fit for everyone. I can't say enough wonderful things about Gina, Mary, and the staff. You will be in extremely talented hands with Gina and her company.

Gina's service is unpretentious perfection. I have been working with her for two years, and I have heard only praise and no complaints. She makes a lot of food, so you can let go of any anxiety about running out. She is hands down my go-to caterer in the area.

Arrange a meeting with Gina today. Food for Thought was recommended to us by our venue and was the catering company that looked like the best match for us from a philosophical standpoint (local, fresh, sustainable, and GF/V-friendly). Since I knew I would be planning the wedding from Seattle, I met with Gina prior to moving out West. I felt immediately comfortable with Gina and completely confident in her menus, service, and planning. She is a wonderful person, and that is what you receive during the entire process: someone who cares about you and your vision.

Planning was easy, fun, and mouth-watering. We colloborated on a menu of scrumptious passed hors d'ouvres, a veggie-heavy autumn buffet, and a variety of desserts that we, and all of our guests, adored. We received so many compliments about Food for Thought, many of which were, "That was the best food we have ever had at a wedding." Gina's staff was nothing less than outstanding. My husband and I were never without a drink (Gina's crew also tended our bar!). The night was perfect.

The most important thing to us was to work directly with vendors who are real people who take pride in their work and who we thought would add something unique to our wedding. Gina is kind-hearted, talented, and will provide you with everything you dreamed of and more.

I'm in tears...tears of gratitude! What a thoughtful and beautiful review. Thank you so much Stephanie. I can't wait to share it with my staff who also deserve the kudos for their efforts and dedication.
You were absolutely darling to work with from the start and your wedding celebration was even more amazing than I could have imagined. It was like a fairytale. Your ceremony was truly moving. I got goosebumps from the music and beautiful readings. It was so lovely and meaningful. And the reception was so romantic and cozy... Such ambiance and love in the air. Everyone had such a wonderful time. We received so many compliments for our food and service. It made us feel so proud because we love what we do and want our clients to be happy.
I wish you and Thorin so much love and happiness together. I hope we keep in touch. Thank you again for your praise and kindness. This is what it's all about. xo

Gina and her staff went above and beyond for our special day. Despite the rain and mud they remained positive and so helpful. Our guests are STILL talking about how incredible the food was, so many of the guests are still telling us that it was hands down, the best wedding food they have ever had. She worked with my husband to ensure that the evening meal would be nothing short of perfect. She responds quickly and is very flexible. We had a slew of dietary restrictions and Gina went above and beyond to make sure that these were met and that the food was delicious for everyone. We couldn't have picked anyone better for the job and we are already brainstorming ideas for when we can use her again.

And it was such a pleasure to work together to ensure a successful and memorable celebration. The overall feeling and aura in the tent was magical. You clearly have extraordinary vision and know how to pull people together in friendship and love. It was very evident that you are honored and loved so very much, by so many. What an honor to be part of your special day.

My lucky day was the day that I found Food For Thought Catering. The food that was prepared for my party was over the top. Delicious and beautiful as well as reasonably priced. Working with Gina is a party in itself. She is passionate about her ideas and what she prepares. I can not wait until I have the opportunity to use her again. First class experience. And I am picky.

We would very highly recommend Food For Thought Catering for any event. Gina is very personable and easy to work with. She was able to give suggestions that would accommodate our budget and then provided us with an absolutely delicious meal with plenty of food for our guests to enjoy. We had the herb-encrusted chicken in a light gravy with smashed potatoes and roasted vegetables and it was probably the best chicken and potatoes we have ever eaten. Gina was also able to and more than willing to provide separate portions for a few of our guests that had wheat and dairy allergies. In our opinion, 5 stars is not enough for this team of experts. The food, the display, the portions, the value, and the contact was all done with excellence!

Gina is wonderful to work with. She is very flexible, creative and a fabulous person to boot! She has catered our event for the past three years. The food is always such a crowd-pleaser - very fresh, tasty, made with care and creatively presented. I know I can always trust that our attendees will have a wonderful gastronomic treat when Gina does the catering!

Gina and her staff were amazing to work with! They provided so much good advice for the event that we had no idea about, and greatly helped enhance the wedding reception for our guests. The food was awesome (many guests commented it was the best they had ever had at a wedding reception), plentiful, beautifully presented and timely served. Gina took care of everything and allowed us the time to truly enjoy our event and welcome and visit with our guests without worry. It was a magical day, and Gina played a big role in making it so. Thanks!
