Gina and everyone at Food for Thought was incredibly kind, flexible, and easy to work with. They happily accommodated multiple food allergies and restrictions, walked me through the process of designing a menu (which I had never done) and provided recommendations, and handled my last-minute inquiries with professionalism and flexibility. And the food was absolutely wonderful! I would highly recommend Food for Thought to anyone hosting an event.

Food is amazing-all fresh local ingredients! Staff was professional and worked hard and was very accommodating. No one went hungry-people went up to the buffet for 2nd and 3rds...this makes me happy, as the food was a MAJOR part of my party. I will definitely use Food For Thought again in the future...

Side Note: Homemade cookies were DELICIOUS! Asian Meatballs and Veggie Spring Rolls.......YUM!!!!!!!

Samantha, you were delightful from the day I met you at the diner at Olde Hickory, and I loved the way you and Jeremy interacted and how sweet you were together! I knew I wanted to be part of your celebration! I'm so happy we met and that I got to help create your memories. And meeting Ms. Emma is a highlight! What a beautiful family you have! Can't wait to cater for you again!

Food For Thought Catering provided the food for our I DO BBQ reception. We were looking for a variety of vegetarian dishes to serve along side some smoked meats we had prepared. From the beginning Gina was helpful, thoughtful, and responsive to every request we made. She sent us her menu, made professional suggestions, and provided feedback on our decisions (e.g., what would work best in our setting). Her staff delivered the food with directions on how to best serve it and helped us set up the buffet line.
Now the food.... People are still raving about how delicious everything was! The dishes were colorful, fresh and healthy! We could not have asked for anything better.

Gina and her crew- Food For Thought- were amazing. At every step in the process, they were aware of our wishes and intentions and and made sure every detail was taken care of. We were particularly difficult clients because we care deeply about the source of the ingredients. This took some more coordination than usual but Food For Thought made it seem easy. Even though I know these are very busy people, they took time for the extra phone calls and consultations so that they could get it right.

I have recommended Food For Thought many times since our event and will continue to do so.

Thanks!

Gina and her staff are much more than just caterers. They are also event organizers. Gina takes the time to get to know her clients, and she creates a menu that truly reflects the clients' personalities. The food is not only unique to the event, but also delicious. I knew she would use only the best ingredients, and the presentation was gorgeous. Her staff is extremely professional--very courteous and efficient. I felt like my events were the most important events she had ever catered! I had the pleasure of having Food for Thought cater my son's wedding (April 26) and my daughter's wedding (June 28), and both events were absolutely perfect. I wouldn't consider ever using another caterer!

Since we had a bit of an untraditional venue (bookstore), we didn't have access to a kitchen. Gina was VERY flexible and gave great suggestions to accommodate dietary and location restrictions as well as our taste buds.

The food was prepared wonderfully and was warm throughout dinner time (my biggest worry!). My favorites were the caprese salad and veggie egg rolls, but everything was great! I would recommend her for any event, large or small.

Thanks again Gina! :)
