From the Press
"My experience with Opoku Catering was great. She arrived on time and the food was delicious. We had five courses cooked fresh, smoothies and appetizers. Chef Gail even volunteered to open and pour the wine pairing for each course. Also appreciate the special touches like the printed menus, tablescape and floral arrangements. My friends and I would definitely use this business again."
"Always a pleasure working with Gail! Very professional, courteous, and punctual! Never had any complaints, her and the entire team are a delight!"
"This was my 4th event with Opoku Catering and as always the service, food, presentation and the absolutely pleasant and friendly attitudes of the owner & staff truly exceeded my expectations!"
