“I wanted to send you a note to tell you how WONDERFUL and DELICIOUS all the food was that you prepared. 

It was a glorious night…capped by one incredible dish after another. 

You are very talented and have an incredible energy about you.  Do you ever get ruffled with ALL that is going on?  It’s hard for me to even imagine doing what you did.  The food is not only fantastic, but it’s presentation a work of art.  I always feel each course is prepared with a little “love”….honest.      

I also so enjoy you coming to the table and describing what you have prepared…With your looks, personality and talent, you need to have your own cooking show!!!!!”

“I worked with Catered Courses last week for a nice 30th birthday dinner evening and couldn’t have been more pleased. Not only was the food absolutely amazing, but the friendly service and engagement was top notch.

I wish that I wasn’t only visiting SoCal as I’d hire them again and again. Thanks Rick for making me look good for my friends and family!”

“Chef Rick recently cooked for a small dinner party that I had w/ a group of friends, and I cannot express how amazing the entire experience was.

First, Chef Rick is an amazing chef, and prepared several unique dishes for our group. Chef Rick also spends the time to ensure that everyone both knows and understands the culinary experience w/ each course.

Chef Rick is quite the technician, but, at the same time is passionate about what he does, and I strongly recommend his services to anyone seeking a delicious meal and a fun culinary experience.”

“We retained Chef Rick to help us with an amazing surprise Birthday Party for my Aunt. My “standard” gift is a pair of earrings, but this was a special B-Day, so I wanted to do something really special.

Chef Rick was accommodating and caring. I was nervous about the party, but Chef Rick helped me feel calm and relaxed. It was fun to hear his fun and creative ideas on how we could create a unique EXPERIENCE and not just a meal.

When it was performance time, Chef Rick’s ability and skill shined.

He has taken food to a form of Art! His dishes were amazing, flavorful and beautiful. His heart really came through every dish and his passion for food, cuisine and his caring for people is unmatched. I highly recommend Chef Rick to you- not for a special meal, but for a priceless experience. Thank you.”

“When I planned my wedding, I was very hands off.  I was lucky to meet Rick Boxeth.  He knew just what I wanted right away and he came up with a beautiful menu of heavy hors d’ouvres, a vegetable platter and a cheese plate.  The cheese was some of the best I’ve tasted. 

Everything was very fresh and the presentation was beautiful. 

His staff was wonderful as well.  It certainly made for a care free wedding.  It is also nice to work with an individual such as Rick who truly has a passion for food.”
