Personal Chef Service
by David and Kristeen Coronado
My husband and I are very blessed to find Candice! She has been providing personal chef services weekly for us in our home for almost a year and we a continually amazed by her talent! Candice has mastered such a wide range of cuisine we are never bored.
She was a life saver during the holidays; her dishes were fabulous and she completely took the stress away by enabling us to serve wonderful food to our family! I call Candice anytime I need to provide a meal for a function or potluck at work. We don't know what we would do without her and we are thankful for her every day!

We had the honor of having Candice prepare my 40+1 Birthday Brunch and the girls are still raving about it. She was professional, and personably and the food was great..
Presentation was perfect, and we had a grand time. She was clear and precise in her menu planning, and it turned out to be an awesome event. I’m so glad we found her and we will be utilizing her services again.
Three Seperate Occasions
by Linda Calnan
My husband and I both feel very fortunate to be clients of Occasions by Candice.
Thus far, Occasions by Candice has catered three events for us: (i) an art show (limited service hors d'oeuvres for 75), (ii) a private party (full service hors d'oeuvres for 40) and (iii) a gluten-free breakfast for 13 (via Candice’s drop-off service).
In each case, the food menu was creative and elegantly executed. Candice produced unique, sophisticated and absolutely delicious items.
I cannot say enough about the fabulous menu. Guests raved, hired her for another event, we selfishly held back a few items….
But, Occasions by Candice offers hosts even more.
From our very first phone call it was clear that Candice understood our wish list and was respectful of our budget. She took the time to listen, make suggestions, make changes and ultimately produce creative plans. For each event, not only was the end-product brilliant, but along the way, I always knew it would be. Candice is clearly competent. I knew I could turn off my control-freak-overly-organized-persona and leave it to her. I was always absolutely confident that Candice would deliver as expected and handle any event curveballs with finesse. I could focus on other event matters and on each occasion, continue to rely on Candice to deliver her magic.
So, this writing is as much as a “thank you” to Candice as it is a wholehearted recommendation.
Thank you Candice,

I can not say enough about the dinner. I was truly blown away by the
food and by all the effort you put into finding that cake. Keep us
posted on your food network results Adrian and I think you would be
great and want to support you 100%.
Like a typical man, I called Candice at the last minute to schedule a
private dinner for our first anniversary. Candice went above and beyond
and was solely responsible for making our first anniversary special, and
for making me look great! Oh and the food was phenomenal!

You did a wonderful job at my sister's baby shower. The food was amazing,
the presentation was beautiful and everyone could not stop talking about it.
You made Amy's shower a very memorable one!
I have not downloaded her shower pics to my computer yet, but as soon as I
do I will send some your way.
In the meantime, if we have any other functions/parties that we need
catering assistance we will be sure to give you a call. You blew our socks
off and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Catering for Alexander Middle School
26 days ago - by Penny Gallop
Last May Candice came to our school to serve our students. It was awesome! The kids had a great time and they were so surprised. Each student received a party hat with great and healthy food inside. Each hat was decorated and placed on the table by Candice. We had so much fun. The food was awesome! The service simply divine! Made my job so easy. We would love to have her come to our school, again. Thank you again for your support and awesome service.

Also, the quesadillas were yummy. I loved that they were a bit different, and not the same ones everyone serves. I look forward to having you do another event, hopefully in the near future. I really like it A LOT better when you come and stay and do everything. It is A LOT of work!! It is well worth every penny spent to have you here... Anyway, take care, and thanks again for the follow up.

I followed your suggestions to keep the beef and potatoes warm , and both were as just cooked when we served them.For all the salad was exceptional and its dressing too. I like salads a lot.The beef flavor was awesome.It is also important to let you know that the portions worked excellent, and several had seconds....really good food indeed.
Merry Christmas to you and family
Holiday Tapas Party
by another satisfied customer
I could not believe how much work all of this was for. I only saw all that you did here at my house. I can only imagine all you did before you got here. Thank you so much for providing such delicious food and making everything look so good. I loved your presentation,at best, at holiday parties. It is usually about how festive everything looks. But, I was lucky, I had both! I had such a good feeling about you, from the moment I met you. Your website and "tagline" was just what I was looking for. I truly did feel like "a guest at my own party". Get some rest knowing you did a great job, and have found a new life long customer!

Just wanted to let you know that everyone loved all of the food. They loved the appetizers and they turned out perfectly. They raved about the meat being so tender and flavorful. They also talked about how creamy the breakfast dish was. Thank you for your help and for responding to my needs so quickly. I look forward to working with you in the future for other events.
