Every couple (who uses us for their wedding) and every corporation (that uses us for their corporate holiday or picnic/summer event) and spends $10,000 or more on that event will receive a gift.

Not just any gift – a free week at a castle in Hawaii, a bed and breakfast with breathtaking view of the ocean (and the whales passing by, in season).

  • "On behalf of ALADS (Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs), this is to recommend Sheri Smith of Gourmet Catering. On 8/26/00 and 7/14/01, Gourmet handled our annual membership picnics for nearly 3,000 guests both years. Events of this magnitude nearly always have some problems - not with Sheri. At both events, the food was delicious and the coordination of the day was handled to our complete satisfaction. Sheri's enthusiasm for her job is refreshing and ALADS would not hesitate to contract with her again."Pete Brodie, ALADS, Oct 14 2011Rating:
  • "Gourmet Catering has provided a wonderful service for Yamaha Music Division for ten years and I highly recommend them. It has been a pleasure to rely on a company for consistent and reliable catering at a fair price. From the simplest box lunch to a formal concert reception, the food is delicious and the presentation creative."Cheryl Landru, Oct 14 2011Rating:
  • "I was lucky enough to pick the best ‘One-Stop-Shopping’ catering group, Gourmet Catering, out of a half dozen options off of the Internet. When I talked with Sheri Smith she gave me great confidence that I was in good hands and that she would take care of everything for me. She promised me a successful BBQ event and that I would be a hero and it was all true. I was given the task of putting on a fiscal year end celebratory BBQ for 600 employees. It was going to be for both shifts feeding 525 on first shift and around 75 on second shift. Sheri was able to accommodate this. The menu options were very diverse and on suggestion we chose the Santa Maria Style Tri Tip BBQ fare. I needed a DJ, picnic furniture, and decorations as well. Sheri was able to arrange for all of this with very little involvement or effort on my part. The event went off without a hitch. Everything was perfect. It turned out so well in 2007 we repeated the event again in 2008. I would recommend Gourmet Catering and Sheri’s expertise to anyone. To this day if I mention the BBQ our employees still rave about the affair. We can only hope, if the economy allows, that we get to repeat this terrific experience again this June in 2009!

  • "To whom it may concern: I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did catering my daughter’s wedding October 30th, 2005 on the yacht MOJO. I was a nervous mother of the bride as I had a very short time to pull together a kosher wedding out of state. You and your staff not only put my fears at ease, but also surpassed all of my expectations. Your crew set a beautiful table and went as far as to help us pack up the top layer of the scrumptious wedding cake for the Bride and Grooms first wedding anniversary. My guests could not stop talking about your blintzes. My sister (a Chicago food snob) said they were the best she had even eaten. If any future clients are worried or would like a reference just send them my way. I’ll give them the full scoop. They will not go wrong with you and your staff behind them.

  • "When I was searching for a catering company for our annual holiday open house (500+ people) I happened to come across a listing for Gourmet Catering...and I'm glad I did. We were getting down to the wire on planning when I called Sheri to see if they could do the job. With little more than a week of lead time they were able to put together a menu that not only satisfied the stomach of our many hungry guests and clients, but also added some presentation flair that will make this last year's event one of the more memorable. I highly recommend the professionals at Gourmet Catering. They're willing to work with you to make to create a menu that's perfect for your event, and that's exactly what we had been looking for.

  • Rating: Oct 16 2011Chuck Rogers, Cabaret Catering"Gourmet Catering was the one we chose to execute our events for Cabaret Catering when we were no longer able to do so. They did such a great job for us and everything was so successful, that our clients didn’t want to change a thing! All of them re-booked and wanted the same menu(s) and services, they just changed the date for the next year. They did a GREAT job for the William Holden Wildlife Association and Stefanie Powers Fund-raiser, despite the rain the crowd of 3500 attended. "
  • Rating: Oct 16 2011Rev. Ken Korver, Emmanuel Reformed Church"On April 30th, we had 800 people at our church for lunch. Our goal was to serve a delicious meal to our congregation with 3 priorities: #1 A FAIR PRICE #2 A DELICIOUS MEAL #3 FAST SERVICE (everyone needed to be fed in 20-30 minutes) All of our goals were met with Sheri and her team at Gourmet. We highly recommend her. "
  • Rating: Oct 16 2011Joel Taylor"Gourmet has provided outstanding services to me and my family over the years (Christmas parties, Fourth of July, High Tea for a wedding shower as well as the wedding reception for our daughter). We’ve had BBQ, kabobs, cold cuts, sit down, stand up, self-serve, indoors and outdoors, tuxedo service as well as buffet. We also HIGHLY recommend the bartending division: www.bartendingsocal.com. And the DJ’s they provide just get it “right”. Each event was memorable, properly done. The staff always professional and fun. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gourmet. The fact they have remained in business since 1990 (when we first hired them) is says it all in this economy. "
