When we were looking for a caterer, we knew right away that we wanted to get away from the monotony of chicken, beef, salmon, or veggie and actually personalize our wedding food. Having identified that food was one of the most important aspect of our wedding, we met with numerous caterers, and quickly recognized that Chef Richard shared our passion for both taste and presentation. He worked with us to tweak and create a menu that fit the mediterranean theme of our wedding, which utilizing seasonal and local ingredients. In the end we settled on a Tapas hour, a salad course, and a selection of pastas to be shared family style.
The tapas:
Rabbit rillette crostini served with peach compote
Escargot ratatouille with a garlic sauce
Artichoke and aged gouda gougere
Pine nut and buffalo mozzarella bruschetta
Seared scallops served with a green tomato gaspacho shooter
Andouille sausage en croute
The salad:
Young greens (spinach, arugula, dandelion, mustard) with walnuts, strawberries, goat cheese and a truffle citrus viniagrette
The pastas:
Pan-seared gnocchi with herbs and blistered cherry tomatoes
Farfalle with asparagus and squash in a rosemary-garlic olive oil sauce
Baked penne with homemade sausage and mozzarella
Following the wedding I've had compliments on each and every dish for the taste and originality. More importantly, our guests felt like they had proper portions without feeling stuffed or still hungry.
As for logistics, Chef Richard's staff was prompt and punctual in getting our space set for both the ceremony and reception. When we arrived ourselves (45 minutes before the start of the event), the space was 100% ready for guests, and Richard was happy to bring both of us a cocktail and a sampler platter so that we could eat something ahead of time.
The staff was extremely professional, and our wedding coordinator commented that she had never seen a group work so efficient and organized. I cannot recommend them more highly.

I think we've all grown accustomed to the typical dried out piece of chicken or beef, a green salad and hard roll at weddings. With Taste 5 & Chef Richard Bailey, the food & presentation were both phenomenal! Chef personally plated the bride's & groom's meals - a special touch that we loved - to be sure they received a little of everything, presented beautifully. We enjoyed a lovely variety of foods & appetizers. Everything was fresh. Pricing was fair & Chef made us feel very valued as customers. I heard nothing but rave reviews about the food, especially the salmon, which often dries out in a buffet, but was perfectly prepared - as was everything else. Please try the Ahi tuna tacos - AMAZING!! I highly recommend Chef Richard Bailey & Taste 5 Catering!! They represent a level of creativity, style & deliciousness I didn't think we could afford.

Richard and his team provided a delicious meal for our wedding in Vail! Our guests raved about the food - they loved the grilled atlantic salmon with shrimp white corn salsa and warm basil cream sauce! I loved the blend of flavors that he created across the whole meal. Richard was so easy to work with, takes great pride in his food (as he should) and left no details unmet. Highly recommend him! We got to focus on our special day, while he took care delivering a delicious meal to our guests!

I can't tell you how wonderful our wedding became. We had to do it fast, 3 months because of a move, but Chef Bailey was the consumate proffessional. It's diffficult planning your own wedding as the groom, and Richard was a calming and supportive influence the whole time. It seemed that every need was met before we even had questions, At every turn he had solutions before we had problems. From the Chocolate fountain to brunch the next day, every detail was flawlessly executed. His smile was ever present, even when bridezilla came out. I can't say enough good things about our special day, thanks in a large part to Richard. And don't underestimate the impartance of a late night buffett for your guests.
