Tina was amazing to work with throughout the entire process, she was professional and extremely attentive to details and quick in her replies. She made the whole process extremely carefree and always responded to my emails within 24 hours even if they were somewhat ridiculous as I had no idea what I was doing in planning a wedding. The value was fantastic and her entire team never stopped all night! The food was excellent and our guests have not stopped raving about the stuffed flounder and spinach berry salad. The apps were tasty too especially the stuffed mushrooms and bacon wrapped scallops. I would highly recommend Tina and her team to cater any of your events!

With catering being one of the most expensive costs of a wedding we wanted to find a caterer that wouldn't break our budget, but that offered quality food. It was discouraging that most caterers in the area were averaging $45-$55 per head, not including appetizers! Also, in order to do a taste test we had to EACH pay the cost per head AND we couldn't taste all the food options that would be offered at our wedding.
We heard of Tasty Persuasions on a wedding forum and liked one of the sample spreads they had to offer. We contacted Tina and were thrilled when she invited us to her home for a taste test of ANY foods we wanted to try, AT NO COST! We fell in love; Tina was so helpful, even before we made the decision to sign a contract with her. She offered advice, suggested vendors, and her cooking was SUPERB! Her costs were more than reasonable compared to the other catering vendors we had contacted; she came in somewhere around $33-$37 per head INCLUDING APPETIZERS!
In the months leading up to our wedding Tina was beyond helpful; she responded promptly to e-mails; re-worked our menu a number of times to ensure that 1. we were still getting the food we wanted and 2. we were keeping within budget as our guest count grew; she offered input on things other than catering; and she made a site visit a week before the wedding to make sure everything was in place.
On wedding day Tina and the Tasty Persuasion Catering crew delivered! They were right on top of things, making sure that everything we had discussed was taken care of and tended to things I had not thought of. All of our guests were complementing on how delicious the appetizers were and what a filling meal they had. Tina was even there when my husband smooshed the cake in my face; pulling out the Wet Ones to help me clean off!
I cannot express how happy we are to have found such a talented woman to work with. Tasty Persuasions will definitely be used for any other events we have in the future! GIVE TINA A CALL!

My wife Erika and I were married on June 23, 2013 at the Barn at Boyden Farm in Cambridge, VT. If we could only use one word to describe Tasty Persuasions Catering it would be...AMAZING!!! When we first e-mailed Tina over a year before our wedding, we were immediately impressed at how quickly she responded to us with a HUGE list of sample menu items and ideas. We hired her on the spot and it was the best decision we could have made for our wedding catering! We really can't say enough good things about Tina! She was so easy to work with and so helpful throughout the entire process of coming up with our buffet menu. Every time we had a question throughout the year, she was always right there with a response. She helped turn a very stressful planning process into something easy and fun. If there was one thing we knew we didn't have to worry about, it was the reliability and quality of our food caterer. On the day of the wedding she and her staff were so professional, friendly, and helpful! And the food....absolutely DELICIOUS!!! We had so many of our guests tell us that it was the BEST food that they had ever had at a wedding! Erika and I can't thank Tina enough for providing us with such exceptional food and service. We would highly, highly recommend Tasty Persuasions Catering and we would definitely hire TPC again in the future! Thank you so much, Tina!

I cannot say enough about Tina Patno, owner of Tasty Persuasions. She went out of her way for the year leading up to our wedding to help us find other vendors, coordinate various logistical details, and put extra special touches on all of our plans. She saw herself as a true member of our wedding team. The day-of, she and her staff were flexible, full of warm and positive energy. Our guests raved about how amazing the food was!

Tina was extremely accommodating to all our special requests, adding her own suggestions that we might not have thought of. She answered all my emails right away. The day of the wedding everyone came in and set up without us noticing and without having to ask us any questions. The service during the cocktail hour (our photo shoot) exceeded my expectations. I just assumed we'd miss out on this part of the catering but the staff brought us appetizers on a silver platter and made sure we all had drinks throughout the shoot.
