catering testimonials

Courtney and the din din crew treated our wedding reception with careful attention to detail, a loving host’s touch, and incredible skill. Courtney worked with us to create a menu that reflected our tastes, our event, and the foods of our region beautifully. Every course of this ambitious menu was perfectly prepared, despite the large scale of our event. The food was absolutely delicious—our guests are still talking about it!”

–Kate & Chris, wedding reception

Courtney’s menus are always inventive. She has a unique point of view on the balance of flavor, texture, and presentation that always delights our guests and makes our events memorable and delicious!”

–Lisa MacKenzie, MacKenzie Marketing Group, various work and private parties

–Kate & Chris, wedding reception

Thank you so very much for everything you provided to make our day special and less stressful. We feel eternally greatly to have used din din. Your staff was fun, interactive, and professional. Now the food…you outdid yourself. We have received countless comments on how good the food was and trust that that is not normal for a wedding. Our friend refers to your salmon as “pink butter!” You will forever be a part of our wedding memories.”
