What they’re saying about Zest…

We used Zest! by Fay to cater our wedding and she did an amazing job. Many of our guests were serious food people, so fresh, flavorful, and high quality food was important to us. Fay did an outstanding job making that happen. Working with Fay, we created a memorable and delicious menu centered around Greek specialty items. When our guests talk about our wedding, one of the first things they mention is how exceptional the food was.

Fay is both professional and extremely easy to work with. She met us several times to look at our space and draw up a menu, working around several food allergy issues with aplomb, for which we’re grateful. She also made great suggestions for setting up the space to ensure room flow, and provided suggestions for other service providers, saving us considerable time.

Zest! by Fay helped make our wedding day beautiful and special and we highly recommend Zest! by Fay and will work with her again as the situation arises.

All of the visitors during our open house were very complementary of the food and beverage offered. We would recommend her services for your next event without question! Thanks again, Fay, for making our Grand Opening a memorable event!

My family and I wholeheartedly recommend Zest by Fay for any occasion. Zest catered a wedding shower for us and it was perfect! Fay’s planning and attention to detail is phenomenal and the food is wonderful. Her weekly Zest to Go is a real treat for me and the family as it is fresh and tasty and something different than what we normally have. I love Monday’s knowing I have a day out of the kitchen!

Zest provided a magnificent meal and great service for our 50th wedding anniversary dinner in the Auditorium of the Old High School in the Pioneer Settlement in Barberville. Our expectations were high and Fay exceeded them, a judgement confirmed by all who were there, from the pastor who blessed our food, and our four children and five grandchildren, right down to four dear old friends from 50 years ago. Our family is full of fine cooks and we rarely get a meal prepared by others that is so good! We recommend Zest by Fay very highly for any catering event!

Zest Catering recently catered our Grand Opening. With all of the preparation needed for the event it was great to know that Fay had all the food, utensils, and linens handled. I could tell that she had put much thought into the event. When the table was set up she had used a garage door and our company logo on her place cards for the food. The food and the presentation was awesome. I recommend Zest for any function.

Zest! catered our poker party recently. What an impressive spread! The food was excellent and the presentation was fun. The players loved it and went back for seconds, even thirds. We highly recommend Zest Catering.

My husband deployed to Afghanistan and Fay Theos owner of Zest catered a send-off event at our home. Fay was prompt and professional and I felt as though I could relax and enjoy every moment of the party. She perfectly set the mood we were looking for and was enjoyable to work with since she took into consideration all of our needs and requests. But most of all the food was delicious especially the tomato mozzarella salad…Yummy!

Zest! Catered our annual Candy Cane making party and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. Adults and kids alike loved it. The food was beautiful, tasty and abundant. We were particularly happy with how Fay incorporated our party theme into the buffet table. We recommend this caterer with enthusiasm!

I would like to recommend Zest Catering for any function that you may need to hire a caterer for. The people who attended our office’s Thanksgiving luncheon have not stopped raving about the food and presentation. We were all pleasantly surprised in the way that she prepared ordinary food to make it extraordinary, with a real home cooked feeling. I cannot even justify calling it a luncheon, it was a feast among friends.
