Testimonials

Loveland, CO - December 2014
Fresh Plates Catering provided all of the food (sans dessert) for a party I was hosting at our home for my husband’s 60th birthday. Tracie met with my husband and me prior to the event to discuss our preferences and then created a menu that incorporated our ideas along with her wonderful recommendations. We went with a ‘heavy hor d’oeuvres’ menu and the food was awesome! There were about 45 people in attendance and everyone absolutely raved about the food. It was so delicious and atypical of the type of appetizers you would usually find at a ‘house party’. In addition, the presentation was done very well; she made up a charcuterie tray that was really over the top. I would use Fresh Plates Catering again in a minute and would highly recommend her to anyone.
