REFERRALS AND CLIENTS
The following is a partial list of our clients since we launched our catering company in October 2014.
Kim Corben, Director, Plymouth Philharmonic
Pre-Concert Soirees, "Meet the Artist" Luncheon, Donor Appreciation Dinner
Ken and Lisa have catered 3 events for the Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra so far - there will be more! The food was excellent and creatively themed around our concerts. They took great care with every detail. Being a bit of a control freak, I usually worry about everything, but by the time we were doing our second event together - I knew they would have everything under control leaving me to attend to my other duties. I have received rave reviews from our patrons after every event they've done for us. Bravo Lisa and Ken! I can't wait to see what they will come up with for our next event!
Lisa and Ken MacDonald catered my entire wedding weekend from the rehearsal dinner to our day after breakfast. Lisa worked with me on everything, creating menus and wine lists to compliment each other.
They are caring and attentive and will absolutely work within any budget. They are creative and professional paying attention to every detail to create the perfect event for YOU.
I know my words can not express the gratitude I have for both Lisa and Ken for making our wedding weekend a memorable one- I am still hearing from friends and family about their Burnt Ends Empanadas, Lobster sliders, 3 Cheese Mac & Cheese, Deviled Eggs (OMG!) and the amazing Rose Sangria with Brandy and Chamboard (to die for!) oh and let's not forget the Oaxacan Mocha Chocolate Cake w/ Cajete and Crema (WOW!!)
Thank you Lisa and Ken for making the planning of this weekend easy and enjoyable- I am honored to be the first of many 5 STAR rating!
This is my very first time writing an online review for any product or service. It's just not my thing (although I do appreciate others' reviews!). However, I was compelled to write this because of two exceptional PEOPLE, Lisa and Ken MacDonald, and the fabulous service they provided for my son's wedding.
We hosted a magical backyard wedding for about 80 people at our home at the end of June and hired Tasteful Adventures to provide the food and catering services. It was the best thing we ever did! We had specific ideas in mind and they worked with us to come up with a menu that suited our vision as well as our budget. So easy and wonderful to work with!
The food - wow! People are still talking about the fabulous food at the wedding. We had stations, passed hors d'oeuvres and a buffet. Many of the items were fabulous recipes proprietary to Ken and Lisa: empanadas, mole, arroz con pollo, marinated swordfish, puttensca, marinated cauliflower, etc. They also prepared and elegantly served the best roast beef many of us have ever had, along with pasta primavera, salads, etc. And we loved the dessert presentation - individual fresh fruit cups with optional real whipped cream. Did I say fabulous?!?!?
From the time they arrived at the house that day, I did not have to even think about the food. They cooked it, set it up, served it and kept it coming. And after the party ended, they left my backyard and kitchen all picked up.
I look forward to my next opportunity to use Tasteful Adventures. Meanwhile, Ken and Lisa participate in farmers markets in the area so it's great to know I can stop by and say hello to these wonderful people and sample their latest creation.
Tasteful Adventures put together an amazing spread for an event that started at one venue and continued at a second venue. Lisa and her team come up with truly great food and beverage suggestions, and everything was really tasty. As this was a complicated event, we appreciated the pre-planning, scouting out the sites beforehand, and taking care of all those little details our family didn't really have time to attend to. Best of all, the pricing was quite reasonable considering the quality and attention we got from Tasteful Adventures.
Prepared Foods Customer
I am a customer of Ken and Lisa's and one of the first to taste test their empanadas. Their committment to use organic, locally sourced ingredients in their recipes shows in the quality of the final product. The homemade goodness cannot be beat. The instructions to heat are very easy to follow. Within a few minutes, you can experience a taste of Latin inspired cuisine. They have a great variety of empanadas to choose from and you won't be disappointed in any of them. Definitely a deserved 5 star rating.

Their catered food is inventive, yet simple and scrumptious. I recommend them for events, dinner parties, and broker open houses.
