Hi Kim,
“I have been meaning to write to you in regards to the food you served at Becky and Tyler’s wedding this June.....Simply said, the food was outstanding....It was so fabulous, that 5 months after the fact I am still hearing about how wonderful the food was from different friends at the wedding. Now how often does that happen? Thank you so much for taking such pride in your talents and adding to the long lasting memories of that special day. Your execution and delivery were flawless AND you are really fun to have at the party. Enjoy your day Kim. ”

“You did an amazing job on Thursday evening. The food was absolutely divine, delicious, perfect, filling, gourmet and plentiful. Everything was beautiful. Loved the bar too! Could I get the Risotto/Orzo recipe from you. I am heading to Chas. in 2 weeks and planning 2 family get togethers and I think that refreshing dish would be a huge hit. The shrimp were killer, so was the hummus, the cheese spread was great. I loved it all and I think everyone else did too! xoxo to you for making this such a great event for us.”


“Thank you so much for helping make our Holiday Open House a memorable party to benefit Second Harvest.  We received so many compliments about the food.  Your preparation and presentation was unique and fun and set the perfect tone for the party.  Your food was loved by everyone — kids and adults alike.”


The wedding was wonderful and the food was fabulous!  We are so happy with the results of the day and you and your staff did an incredible job!  Thank you again for all you did and all the compromises and considerations!
We appreciate your patience and sense of humor too!

"Perfection is the best way to describe Kimberley's Catering.  Every detail
is perfect and the food is elegantly delicious."

Melissa Gilbert, President, Children's Hospice & Palliative Care Coalition, and past two term President of the Screen Actors Guild

We give Kimberley's our highest recommendation. The food, service (clean up too) were beyond our expectations and the party was full of people we REALLY wanted to impress. Kim was easy to work with, professional and her staff was excellent as well. Our party flowed perfectly.

"During the last several months, I have had the pleasure of working with Kimberley's Catering.  As the host of several dinners, two medium size and one large event, I needed a caterer who combined both excellent food and top quality service for my guests.  Kimberley's Catering provided both, and more!  Kim, herself, is so attentive to the needs of her customer.  Working closely with them to identify exactly the right menu and beverages.  She then assembles a charming serving staff, and excellent chefs to prepare and serve the exquisite feast."

"I enthusiastically recommend Kimberley's Catering to anyone who wants a wonderful dinner for six, or a festive party for 150 quests.  Your event will be remembered by your quests for a very long time."

Fred Keeley,
Treasurer County of Santa Cruz

"Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and it could not have been such a unique, fun, and elegant event without the help of Kim and her staff. “Tasteful cuisine, thoughtful planning and seamless execution.” This truly reflects the service you will receive if you choose Kim to cater any event. The food was not only excellent, but it was presented in a creative and beautiful way! She also worked with us to understand our vision and from that created a delightful experience for our guests! Kim and her friendly staff took charge and went above and beyond the call of duty whenever necessary to ensure the event ran smoothly. Kim is flexible, open to new ideas and simply great to work with! I will call on her to cater any future events!"

Jess & Mark Nelson

"Hi Kim,
Thank you for your support of our Board Retreat - the afternoon was wonderful and you helped set the tone.  I think you should change your tagline to "flawless execution"!  Looking forward to working with you again.

"Kimberly under-promises and over-delivers providing personal service, attention to every detail, and friendly, professional staff. She is creative and flexible to work with as well.  I highly recommend Kimberley’s Catering for any event.”

Cathy Schlumbrecht,

"For a New Year holiday party, we asked Kim to cater. ‘Your lovely party wins the season’s prize for being most elegant,’ wrote one guest. And another wrote ‘You could not have created a more perfect celebration of the New Year.’  Having had all of the most delectable culinary creations served at the Darling House events over more than 20 years, we were obviously pleased with Kimberley’s Catering!”

Darrell and Karen Darling

“Dear Kim,
I cannot thank you enough for making my father’s wedding day so special in every way!  The food was delicious and the presentation a work of art! You and your staff took care of every detail so that my 79 year old father and his 76 year old blushing bride’s only job was to relax, celebrate and enjoy a truly magical day! Your talent, professionalism, enthusiasm and attention to detail were greatly appreciated.”

Deborah Routley and Family

“Dear Kimberly ,
You did a great job! Everyone raved about the food - I'm passing along the good word to everyone I talk to that hasn't heard of you. Your staff did a super job as well. Thank you so much."

Margaret Dalbesio
Mother of the Bride

"Dear Kim,
You are the best! You went above and beyond the duties of a caterer and I'm so grateful for your insight and support. The food was delicious. Your staff was kind and attentive and you were a lifesaver. A million thank yous!"

"Kim, what an amazing effort to pull all this together in just a few weeks.
You can add an extraordinary testimonial to your work from the people at CEMEX. Thank you for a really wonderful day."

Dear Kim,
" The whole dining experience was just so WONDERFUL. From the hors d'oeuvres (and the extra one you surprised us with - delicious!), the salad, entrees, and OHHH that fabulous cheesecake! Though I read the menu and knew it was going to be a truly terrific meal, you guys absolutely exceeded any imagination of that. Everyone was still talking about the food the next day, and I am quite sure it will continue to be a part of the conversation whenever the "weekend event" topic comes up. Thank you and your team for being a part of the highlights of this special occasion! Warmest Regards,"
