Having Kate and the Blackstrap BBQ team cater our wedding was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning! From the beginning Kate was so fantastic to work with. She helped us pick the perfect menu, decor and made all the logistics a breeze. Any time we had a question or concern (be it about food, our venue, drinks, floor plan, you name it) Kate was so fast to respond and put us at ease. Kate's planning and day of coordinating services really went above and beyond! On the day of she made sure everything ran so smoothly that my husband, our family and I didn't have to worry about a thing! Also, the food was delicious (we got so many compliments from our guests about the amazing BBQ!)

We would 100% recommend Blackstrap BBQ to anyone looking for an event caterer! Thank you Kate!

Kate and her team were absolutely amazing. She was a dream to work with coordinating all of the details for our day, and we had so much fun too! She was super helpful and knowledgable and assisted us with coordinating with our venue and rental company as well. Her staff was delightful, the food was insanely good, and she was just the best to work with. We only wish we had more leftovers! I would recommend Kate and Tastyplates to all of my friends and family getting married in the area and could not have asked for anything better!

Our experience with Kate & Andrea was no less than perfect! Kate was incredibly responsive and insightful throughout the planning and her personality is so warm and welcoming. Mid-way through Andrea joined our team and we hit it off immediately, Andrea was fabulous on the big day with organization and ensuring the day moved smoothly. Chris and his staff created an incredible selection of appetizers and the main courses had everyone excited to learn that they could go visit Blackstrap BBQ for more! Overall they helped to make our wedding day everything we could have ever dreamed!

I recommend Kate and Tastyplates without reservation to anyone planning an event of any size. They catered my wedding and everything was exactly how it was supposed to be. Guests raved about the quality of the food, from the passed hors d'oeuvres to the entrees. I have not had better BBQ in the northeast. The thing that stood out the most was how attentive and on top of everything Kate was during the event itself - Not only will she act as caterer, but she will act as overall organizer and planner for your event. Reach out to TastyPlates/Blackstrap today if you are looking to plan an event!

Tastyplates Catering is fantastic to work with. We used them for our daughters' Bat Mitzvah party and working with them, start to finish, was a pleasure. Kate was responsive and flexible when it came to tweaking the menu and rentals. She had a great sense of humor and was fun to communicate with. Andrea, who was on site for the party, scheduled the walk through a few weeks ahead of time, and was very helpful thinking through the way we'd organize the space and timing, and calmed my nerves about fitting everyone in the room. During the party, she seemed to be everywhere (also out of the way): when my daughter asked that the desserts not be put out too early, Andrea was on it. When my niece was looking for a place for her baby to sleep, Andrea appeared with a cloth for him to lay on. The staff was professional and the food was great. And they cleaned everything up so that, by the time we left at the end, the venue was spotless. I HIGHLY recommend them.

We chose Blackstrap BBQ to cater our May Wedding and we could not have been happier with our decision. We had the farmer's bar for the Cocktail hour and a BBQ buffet at the reception and the food was so delicious! We got so many compliments and Blackstrap even packed up the leftovers for us so we could enjoy eating them for the next couple of days. We worked with Kate and Andrea to plan and Andrea was our event manager. Both women were a dream to work with. They were so laid back while also keeping me and my husband on track, we wouldn't have been able to pull off our wedding without them!

We had Kate and blackstrap bbq catering for our wedding at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center. This ended up being such a good decision! Kate is incredible and acted basically like a wedding planner for us. There are so many things that I'm sure would have gone wrong if she wasn't thinking about all the details. She helped us through every step of the process and made sure everything was going well. This is even before getting to the food, which was outstanding! So many compliments from our guests, many saying it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. I loved having bbq, I was not going to miss eating at my wedding! Kate and her team are the best - could not recommend them more highly.

I would trust Kate from Tasty Plates with my life! Ok, but really, she was absolutely amazing to work with -- sometimes I think she was as excited about my wedding as I was! She was the first vendor we booked, and she helped us figure out all the remaining details, which was great because we weren't totally sure what we were doing. Kate was phenomenal (and phenomenally patient) when it came to me changing the menu (like 3 times) and the tablescapes -- flatware, china, etc (like 100 times). She got my vision, and she was an awesome person to bounce ideas off of, and offer amazing solutions. Now, the food: it was SO good! Our guests are still talking about it. Like I said, I changed my mind a ton of times, but since Kate also has a restaurant (Black Strap BBQ), we were able to try everything in advance. The steak was amazing, especially, and everyone said they loved the presentation (think: fancy bbq-inspired, gourmet, garden-fresh, and delicious). She helped me think through our sig cocktails, and even brought mint from her own garden for the mint juleps :) I think what I loved most was that she was so accommodating to our changes, and to our budget -- we were aware of every line item, and she helped us trim when necessary. My friends joke that I was more choosy about my napkins than I was about my husband (lol!) but at the end of the day, Kate made sure I had the perfect mint green napkins that matched the venue (the CMAC -- honestly, get the napkins from Peterson's they match *exactly*), my bridesmaid dresses, and all that. If you're even considering Kate and Tasty Plates, I really urge you to pick her -- you won't regret it!
