I have been using Anna & Anna Catering for personal chef services since last spring to help me manage a gluten and dairy free diet. Once a month Anna delivers a week's worth of yummy food for lunch and dinner that is healthful and varied. All I have to do is heat it up! It is always a relief to have a bit of a break from cooking after coming home from a full day at the office.
I look forward to my meals on my week "off". Some of my favorites are the butternut squash, kale, and almond side dish, the shrimp and quinoa main dish, and the special Russian cole slaw. The cookies are amazing!! Thanks Anna and crew!!
My husband and I have known and worked with Anna since she was referred to us by good friends in 2009. Since then she has catered just about all of our parties and more than a few private dinners too. We rely on Anna for her menu recommendations, sometimes for the dishes she personally makes and contributes to our events, and especially for her diligence and reliability.Whether she is working alone or with her team members, she is consistently calm under pressure, unfailingly polite to our guests and always leaves our kitchen more spotless than she finds it. As further testament to her reputation, we frequently see Anna catering various friends’ events, where she was recommended by us. It’s hard to image hosting a social event without Anna’s help[; we highly recommend her.
I can recommend the services of "Anna & Anna Catering." They assisted at my cocktail hour and seated buffet dinner for twenty-four people last year. They presented and served appetizers during cocktails, presented and maintained the buffet, served the first course and beverages at table, and prepared and served coffee and dessert, all with professional confidence.
I appreciated their filling in the occasional forgotten details, and clearing up quietly and efficiently as the party progressed.I would hire them again and recommend them highly to others.
Anna and Anna Catering have staffed the kitchen for two events in our home: one a formal sit-down dinner for 24, and the other a large party with a buffet. In each case they were terrific – helpful, knowledgeable, friendly but unobtrusive, very efficient and professional. The setting is a large kitchen/dining/living room, which meant that they were working in the entertaining space at all times. In each case, two women set up, plated, served and replenished food and drink, and cleaned up. They did last minute preparations of food as well as presentation. Based on their delicious attractive results, I would not hesitate to hire them to cater an entire event.One of their outstanding qualities is that they are a “quick study,” learning our kitchen and expectations very efficiently. They worked hard and steadily and were surprisingly quiet, given that they were in the same room with us the whole time. Another skill was anticipating needs both prior and during the event and responding appropriately. They were amenable to our expectations re: timing, serving, recycling, etc. They wasted no time during set-up and take-down, resulting in very fair pricing. Finally, after the parties, at our request they offered suggestions for improvements in staging our next event. We will definitely be calling on the Annas for any catering or related party needs in the future.
