    I have used the Lazy Gourmet for many events, both large and small, personal and professional, and would absolutely recommend them. Their team is incredibly personable and has always been willing to work with my themed events. For my wedding shower we created a completed custom menu of appetizer sized french classic dishes like French onion soup, Nicoise Salad, and steak frites just to name a few. I also worked with their talented pastry chef to create a one of a kind Sweets Station inspired by items one would find on Coco Chanel's Dressing Table. All of my guests were blown away by the food at this event and it really set the tone for our wedding we later held in Paris. I can't wait to see what they come up with for my next party.

    Lazy Gourmet is not like other wedding food...

    Tracy and Lazy Gourmet are not your average wedding and event caterers...they produce exquisite cuisine that happens to be served to an enormous group of people. No two menus are alike as Tracy creates a new flavor and feel based on everything from your relationship to the time of sunset and moon phase. She even made an egg-free, gluten-free cake that was delicious (allergic bride :). What we tasted in the tasting was exactly how the food turned out for all of our guests on the big night. Not only is the food from Lazy Gourmet fantastic, they also provided some of our place setting items and decor, including a popsicle cart! We highly recommend Tracy and Lazy Gourmet.

    The Lazy Gourmet lived up to its well-established reputation as a high-quality, professional caterer true to its West Coast roots. We really appreciated the attentive service and attention to detail in the planning stages, especially since we were planning from out of town. We were beyond happy with the quality of food and services on our wedding day. Our guests raved about the hors d'oeuvres and buffet-style dinner, and there was plenty of food to go around. We would definitely recommend the Lazy Gourmet for future weddings and catering needs.

    Jennifer and the Lazy Gourmet made our special day amazing! We were able to incorporate custom items into our menu that highlighted our South American roots which were very meaningful to us. We also had a kids menu which a few adults snuck in to enjoy as well! The venue was decorated beautifully from flowers to table settings and drapings which created a classy and fun environment for our guests of all ages to enjoy.

    We definately recommend Jennifer and her team- the whole planning process was very enjoyable and as the date got closer it was a relief that I could pass on a few last minute items their way. Only suggestions to other couples is - enjoy the tasting as much as you can as on the day of you will be busy and celebrating with guests.

    The Lazy Gourmet were excellent! The servers were very friendly and professional. They even made sure to save a plate of food from the buffet for the bride and groom. I would absolutely recommend The Lazy Gourmet to anyone.
