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!

My wife and I used Bourassa Catering for our outdoor wedding reception on 9/27/2014, of about 90 people. They were fantastic. We built our wedding up from scratch, using our house as the reception venue. During the initial meeting, Bob listened to our likes and dislikes, and then created a menu and proposal that fit our taste buds and wallets.

From that point, we worked with Natalie on putting the rest of the reception together. From the start we had a really good idea of what we wanted, and she worked through any changes that we threw at her - they were extremely flexible with our requests. We had some vegetarians and vegans and were able to create a separate plate for these guests. They were fantastic to work with and conscious about our budget through the whole process. They have a great rapport with other vendors for seating, tents, etc. They provided a “one stop shop” for all things an outdoor wedding would need.

On the day of, the team provided exceptional service. The entire staff was friendly and professional to us and our guests. They took care of all setup (tables looked fantastic) and breakdown, keeping our venue clean

The food was phenomenal. Our guests to this day, still talk about all of the food (appetizers and dinner) they had at our reception and how delicious it was. We could not recommend Bourassa Catering enough.

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.
