“Shannon Ransom catered several of our team building events. I’ve found her to be professional, punctual and incredibly easy to work with. She was able to work within a reasonable budget and the luncheons she designed have always been delicious, imaginative, and varied enough to cover the many dietary customs common in the Bay Area. I look forward to working with her again”.

“We had a sensational experience developing the menu for our special engagement party. Your suggestions were outstanding, your attention to detail astounding, and your pre-planning resulted in a flawless event.” “Your suggestions guided us to the right seasonal selections, the right combinations, and the right choices. The pre-planning was filled with touches and thoughts guaranteed to make the event itself a delight. You and your staff perfectly executed the event, kept the food and drink coming, and made sure everything worked so we didn’t have to leave our guests for a moment. There was no question but Shannon was our choice to plan and execute a wedding menu. Professionalism counts, and you have not only our most sincere thanks for making our event a success, but also our strongest recommendation for anyone serious about their event turning out memorably.”

“I agreed to sponsor an early evening networking event on behalf of my firm. With four days to prepare, I called Shannon in a panic. She patiently walked me through some options, got a sense of the crowd and pulled the whole thing off without hitch. I can't believe what a wonderful job Shannon did under such limitations. Her presentation was perfect and I received many compliments on the catering. She is an amazing chef with unwavering delivery. Thanks for saving my butt!”
