What people are saying...

From the very first communication to the day of execution, the team at Scratch Kitchen were a delight to work with. We planned a wedding for our daughter in Buena Vista from New Jersey.

Jessica, Sharon and team, worked with us from the start, helped design a fabulous menu and then executed flawlessly. The customization and personalization of the menu was a joint effort with Scratch providing some fantastic options to make this event wonderful.

 

Originally a 2020 wedding and a victim of pandemic travel restrictions, Scratch Kitchen made it easy to move the wedding 12 months without issue,

stress or penalty.

 

From our 'over the top' cocktail hour to a fabulous BBQ dinner with all the extras, Scratch outperformed at every opportunity.

Feedback from our guests was fantastic, we had several vegetarians at the wedding and the options we provided had them saying that this is the first wedding they have been to where they left full and happy with delicious food.

 

We want to host another event in Buena Vista just so we can work with Scratch Kitchen again!

-Alyson and Danny H.

 Everyone raved about the food! Thank you,
thank you, thank you! -Natalie B.

Thank you so much for all the amazing food and for being an important part of our ribbon cutting! Your food put the event over the top! -Kimalee A.

Scratch Kitchen catered my daughter's wedding. Sharon and Jessica met with us several times prior to the wedding and were instrumental in both deciding on a menu that would fit our budget and designing an absolutely beautiful hors d'oeuvre and dessert buffet filled with delicious food. Their cooking experience, eye for colors, textures and table design was amazing and brought so much to the wedding reception. 

They listened carefully to all the things the bridge and groom wanted and gave helpful suggestions to make the reception even more than we could have hoped for. I highly recommend
Scratch Kitchen for any event you may be having as they are very talented, organized and professional in their craft.
