what our clients have to say.
I can't say enough good delicious things about Marlene. Not only is her food DELICIOUS but she makes everything look so dang pretty! She has a eye for immaculate presentation and taste to match.
She was so easy to work with, great attitude and delivered on exactly what I asked her for, and completely exceeded my expectations. I almost wish I was throwing an event every day so I could have Marlene's talents on the daily!
As the event host, every single patron came up to me and complemented the food many, many times and the gorgeous presentation.
My photographer for the event is the photographer here in LA for one of the city's most elite and sought out restaurants (to be named nameless....but think Venice and Abbott Kinney) She said to me "wow. Food is so incredibly important and your caterer knocked it out of the park in style and in taste. Well done on hiring her. "
I can't wait to use Marlene and all her talents again as soon as possible.
Chef Marlene and her team are absolutely incredible partners! We worked with them for a gallery event for 50 people and the spread was the talk of the evening. Marlene was so wonderful to work with, answered all my questions thoroughly and quickly, and was a great resource when it came to finding other vendors like bartenders. Hope to work with her in the future. Thank you!
Marlene has been a star caterer for the past few months here. Apart from having an amazing selection on her menu, she certainly delivers: whether it's her seasonal farm fresh selection of dishes, or her ability to provide care to her clients and make sure they are well fed.
You really can taste the seasonality and freshness, see the beauty, care and time she takes in everything she does while feeling good and feeling full from what you're eating. It's been a delight getting lunch for 80+ people from her each week - thank you Chef Marlene! Highly recommended!
Marlene and her team are amazing! We hired her for our company's holiday dinner party. The process of panning our menu was so easy and Marlene was so helpful by answering all of my questions. The night of our event, Marlene and her team arrived early and immediately got to action with prepping everything and creating a beautiful space to display and serve the food. Everything was so fresh and delicious! Everyone on our staff commented about how great the food tasted. Marlene and her team are true professionals and I would highly recommend them for your next catered event!
Nothing but the most enthusiastic praises for Marlene and her team! She comes highly, highly recommended! Marlene was so accommodating and the entire process was seamless from the start. She ended up creating and executing the most delicious menu for our wedding! We didn't have the space for a formal sit down dinner, so she made platters of incredible, sophisticated dare and everything was next level delicious! Her prices were not pretentious, and nor is she, especially for a LA chef.
Marlene is approachable, disarming, and overall lovely, She's super easy to work with. Her team was also, and they were on their "A" game the entire evening according to my wedding coordinator. In fact, she also had nothing but praises for Marlene an her team the day after the wedding! I was pleased to hear that report. Overall, they are all absolute STARS!!! ps: They left the kitchen immaculate!
Marlene is one of the kindest, yet most professional people i have worked with. Her passion for food is showcased in the incredible spread she brings our company once a week. We started by trialing Marlene's catering once a month, however that very quickly escalated to having her cater for us once or twice a week! Everyone in our office absolutely LOVES her food. Great quality, beautifully presented, and so easy to work with. I couldn't recommend Marlene enough!
This was honestly the best in office catering we have ever had. I was very impressed with Marlene as not only did I need to cater for a group of 15 on very, very short notice, Marlene still allowed me to pick the exact menu that would fit for the group of people that would be in the office that day.
On the day of the event, Marlene showed up early, set up the food quietly and was in and out with no disruption to the meeting that was taking place just outside of the area I gave her to set up.
The food, wow! The food was top notch. We had chicken and vegetables, a spaghetti squash miracle creation, phenomenal potatoes, and a delicious salad. I got rave reviews on my catering choice which only means that Marlene deserves the credit for coming through for me like she did.
We will certainly be using Marlene for catering again! What a wonderful experience.
I can't recommend Marlene enough. She was really helpful when we were planning the menu and her variety of menu options was incredible. We hired her and her team for an engagement party and everyone raved about the food. Everything she prepared was delicious and she was extremely accommodating with all our requests.
