I had an extremely positive experience working with Bourassa Catering for my wedding. From my initial contact with Bob, he was fantastic in answering my countless questions throughout the year and quickly became my go-to person for advice on menu selections and day-of logistics. He was always quick with responses and is enormously helpful with suggestions. Most importantly, he offers a fantastic variety of inspired food options that stand out from the typical catering fare. Based on his sample options, we hired him without even testing his food – we figured if he could put together such a wonderful menu, his food must be tasty! Sure enough, we were absolutely thrilled with our food the day of our wedding, and we received many enthusiastic compliments from guests. The service was phenomenal, the staff was down-to-earth, and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend Bourassa Catering for dependable, wonderful service!

I worked with Bob Bourassa and his team for my daughter's bridal shower and could not be more pleased. From the variety of food options to the thoughtful suggestions on set-up to the super-friendly waitstaff. Guests at the shower remarked about the variety, presentation, quality and taste of the food selection. A vegetarian at my table commented about how flavorful and plentiful her choices were. It has been almost a month since the event and I am still getting rave reviews! Bourassa Catering is the way to go for all of your catering needs. And if you're ever in the Wallingford area be sure to stop by their pristine eatery for lunch, their salad bar is amazing! Enjoy!!

We had the wedding reception in a museum, and it was fabulous because we were in the capable hands of Bourassa Catering. We were blown away by the excellent food and the professional staff and the smooth efficiency with which Bob and his crew conducted the wedding reception for our family.

From the 'meet and greet' to the dinner and the dessert, the term 'well-oiled machine' doesn't even approach the outstanding performance of everyone involved. The chefs were affable at the serving stations, The serving captain kept everything moving on schedule, and every one of the the servers was lovely and alert and helpful.

Thanks for helping us plan this event, stay within budget, and put on a feast for our family and friends.

Bourassa Catering will be our caterer for the next event, too.

How can I begin to describe the experience of having Bob Bourassa cater our wedding? He first came onto our radar because his company was listed in CT Bride magazine as one of their top recommended vendors. From the very first phone call we had with Bob over a year ago, we had a distinct sense of the warmth, enthusiasm, care, and charisma with which he conducts his business. Going into the tastings, my fiance and I were both "rooting" for Bob to have the best food because we loved his personality and enthusiasm so much. We are both pretty into (one might even say obsessed with) food, so with Bob's help we had designed a fairly exotic buffet menu ranging from pork belly to Indian vegetable curry to duck confit to lobster roll. As soon as we started tasting the food, it was clear that Bob would have sealed the deal, hands down, whether we were rooting for him or not. The food was a slam dunk then, and if anything it tasted even BETTER on the actual day of the wedding, in spite of having to prepare it all in mass quantities. Our group of friends and family include many a hardcore food lover, and they were all completely and utterly WOWED by the spread.

As far as service and professionalism, Bob was there for us 100% throughout the planning process, and assured us back at the tasting that he would be there himself on the day of the wedding and would show up with his "A team." And that's exactly what happened--his staff pulled everything off to perfection, and every single person I interacted with was courteous, professional, friendly, and down-to-earth. I honestly can't imagine how our wedding could have been any better than it was, and a huge part of that was the wise decision to hire Bob Bourassa. I highly and wholeheartedly recommend that you do the same!
