What they’re saying about Zest…

I cannot say enough amazing things about Zest Express! Meals-To-Go by Fay. She makes such a wonderful variety of food, including scrumptious veggies, and each and every dish is prepared with the freshest ingredients and a lot of love. It looks beautiful and tastes delicious! Fay works with us to make every meal work both for the adults in our house and our two young children, and it is so easy to heat and serve. Fay’s service very much relieves the daily stress to get a well-rounded, tasty meal on the table and has been a game-changer for our family! You can’t go wrong with Fay!

I can understand why there is an ‘!’ after Zest! The weekly Meals-To-Go has been a total game changer for my very on the go family. Each week we can count on delicious, fresh meals ready to just pop in the oven and serve that even my picky 4 year old loves! Zest has helped regularly bring us back to the dinner table as a family, and has given us more time together in the evenings. Thank you!

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.

We would love to recommend Fay and Zest Catering for your next event. We found Fay and her staff to be consummate professionals. Her food suggestions and selection were excellent in quality and very tasty, her service was excellent and the price was very reasonable. 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!

I am a hard working woman, wife and mother of 3. I sincerely do not know what I would do without Fay and Zest Express. She is my lifesaver on a weekly basis! Not only is the food absolutely AMAZING and DELICIOUS, but packaged so you can easily reheat and serve to the family. Picking up on my way home on Monday’s makes that Monday frown turn upside-down. Try her once and I promise you will be a believer, too!

When you think of catering the first thing that comes to mind is events such as banquets and weddings. Zest by Fay has you covered for all your events. However, what you might not know is Zest by Fay also does home catering. Recently introduced to Fay and home delivery/pick up the meals prepared at Zest are not only bountiful but delicious and full of flavor. Providing 2-3 meals a week the portions and prices are affordable and worth every penny. Whether you’re single, a couple, or small family in need of some great home cooking look no further than Zest by Fay. A little Zest goes a long way!

Dear Fay, I just wanted to write you and express just how pleased I was with the food @ my daughter’s wedding reception. From the appetizers to the entrees to the potatoes and veggies…..all beautifully displayed with exceptional taste. Many of my guests commented on how good the food was!!! I couldn’t have asked for anything better!! Also, I would like to thank you for your assistance with several other reception issues…securing the china, flatware, glassware and table and chair linens. I really feel that you went over and above my expectations!! My daughter had the most wonderful day of her life; and your food and services helped to make this happen. Thank you again so very much. I would highly recommend Zest Catering to any one searching for just the right caterer!!!

My family and I love the convenience and delicious food Zest Express prepares, without fail every week.
I am super picky about the quality of ingredients and menu selections. Fay never disappoints! Everything we have ordered is so flavorful and fresh. In addition to meals for my family, I also order meals every week for my elderly parents who are disabled and not able to cook for themselves. Fay delivers the meals right to their doorstep and they love the dinners she prepares. The portions are very generous and they always have left-overs for lunch the next day. I feel so happy knowing they are eating healthy, delicious clean food-not frozen food or take-out! Thank you Fay! You have given us the gift of family around the table sharing a meal-without the shopping, the preparation or the clean-up! 🙂

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!

We have found Fay’s meals to be fresh, delicious and well-prepared. The variety each week is outstanding. They are simple to re-heat with the instructions provided and have saved us from many evening ‘challenges,’ having to prepare healthy meals for hungry children. We just heat them up, and we can all take time to sit down together without feeling rushed. Fay is very professional and easy to deal with, so much so that we are looking forward to working with her in catering a large fundraising event for a local non-profit. We highly recommend her as a catering professional.

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!

Fay made my experience of ordering meals for my parents easy and fun! She was willing to adapt to their needs and restrictions and personally took their meals to their door with a smile. It was a lifesaver for me and reassuring to know they were in good hands. I found the value to be excellent. No other service can provide what Fay provides. I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to deliver meals to friends or family, whether elderly, recovering from illness, just had a baby, or any other reason you want to send a little love!

Zest catered our White Elephant Office Christmas Party. The food was delicious and Fay even dressed according to our “theme.” Outstanding presentation and professionalism! I would highly recommend Zest Catering for anyone looking to cater their office or personal parties.
They did a great job!

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.

I would highly recommend Zest catering! I work in the nursing home industry and was able to celebrate and say thank you to some very hard workers in various hospitals and I relied on Zest catering and the outcome was amazing. The feedback that I received afterwards was unbelievable. Zest not only supplied delicious food but the set up was very inviting! Thank you, Fay, for making my events a success!

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!

Great job on our business client appreciation brunch! Your attention to details specifically focusing around our core business was impressive. Our clients all commented on how good the food was too. Thank you for handling everything from invitations, to mailers to decor and the yummy food. We couldn’t have done it without you in the little time we had to pull it together.

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.
