Chef Mike - Your pineapple palm tree kit
was an absolute hit at today's FOCUS "Surf's Up" cooking class for parents of special needs kids held
at Camp Twin Lakes. I'm using it again for another party next Thursday. Thank you for such an elegant
and simple fruit display idea. It is by far the most impressive and inexpensive fruit display idea I've stumbled
across! Beci K., Rutledge, GA
Chef Mike - I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful ideas that I recently purchased from you website.
The Pineapple Palm Tree fruit display was beautiful at our luau party and so simple to prepare. My best
friend's daughter is getting married next year and she's going to use the kit at her wedding reception.
Thanks again and please keep me informed of any new products you offer in the future. Beverly S., New
We purchased the Palm Tree Kit last minute for a Luau
party and it was a huge success. Chef Mike was most helpful in getting it to us last minute...and his efforts were much appreciated.
Our event was a roaring success and the Pineapple Palm Tree was a BIG part of our pool side & marina presentation.

Dear Chef Mike - I purchased your Pineapple Palm Tree kit several weeks ago and we used it at my
parent's 50th wedding anniversary this past weekend. I'm not much of a cook and never have been, however,
your fruit display kit was so easy to put together. We plan on using it again for a Jimmy Buffet pool
party I'm throwing for my husband's 50th birthday. Thanks again for the great idea! Brittany M., Charlotte,
Hi Chef Mike - My friend's luau party was a ton of fun. We got lots of raves about our
contribution! Thank you very much for the unique and impressive pineapple palm tree fruit display kit. It was
awesome! Margie Y., San Diego, CA
Chef - Just a brief note to thank
you for the Palm Tree kit. I recently used it for a wedding at our country club and it was a HUGE topic of conversation.
I cannot even begin to tell you how many compliments I received. The general manager was impressed, as well.
Job security! Thanks again for the kit and I look forward to using it again for future events. It was a sincere
pleasure doing business with you. Bon appetit! Chef John C., Seattle, WA
Chef Mike - I just wanted to say thank you so very much! Last week, I ordered your palm
tree kit. I was planning on calling a caterer and spending a lot of money. My brother and I and our spouses are
planning a luau anniversary party for our parents. We are using your PalmTree kit and suddenly none of
us are sweating anymore. Our stress levels have diminished completely. Thank you for making something that appears to be so
difficult a piece of cake. I'm actually beginning to think I'll get to enjoy the party myself! Amy L., Raleigh,
Chef Mike - I used your palm tree fruit display kit yesterday at a retirement party for a couple who
are moving to the beach. It was absolutely the talk of the party. My close friends who attended
the party swore I hired a professional! LOL Thanks a million for the great idea! Cindy S.,
This book is an answered prayer!
Everyone (including myself) thought I must be insane to think I could provide my own catering. This
book contains all the details you need to coordinate the menus, food preparation, supplies, and decorating yourself. Everything
is spelled out in simple, clear steps so that even a complete novice (like me) can do it! I especially like the variety of
reception styles and food choices - I plan to mix and match a few of the menu items. I'm so glad I found the book - now
I can quit stressing about this aspect of my wedding and move on to something else! Tina G., Lubbock, TX
Faced with a minimum budget, I really had
no choice but to cater my own wedding reception. This book, thank God, delivers on its promise and tells you exactly
and precisely how to do it. It includes great recipes, quantities, table layouts, and detailed lists of everything you need
to make it a success (including some terrific decorating ideas)...with no one person being a slave. Buy this book by
all means!!! Grace H., Oklahoma City, OK
This book is fabulous! You really can pull
off having a glorious wedding without hiring any "pros". Everything is spelled out for you. Our friends
and family's comments to my husband and myself were, "You must have spent a fortune!" We didn't! That was
the true beauty of it all! God bless you Chef Mike and thank you for all of your expertise and hard work! Cathy

My daughter's wedding was last Saturday.
It was a total success. I used this book extensively. Reception was held in my Church's Family Center (Gym). I totally
laid out the tables as shown in the diagrams from the book. Mixed and matched the recipes from the different party formats
in the book. The cheapest food I could find to buy was a dollar a piece for finger food (with my picking it up and providing
the trays). So if each person ate five items, 200 people well, you can do the math. I did not spend near that, and had a much
nicer selection of food. I also used his deorating tips. I will be saving this book for my next daughters wedding, and am
recommending it to all my friends. Vivian I., Lincoln, NE
Just when I thought my head was going to
pop off... Cater Your Own Wedding arrived in the mail. It had all the lists that I had started and misplaced, including drawings
of table lay outs for 50 to 100 people. It broke down the job of organizing a party into neat categories, each with it's
own check list. The book includes recipes and amounts, number of chairs and tables needed, and things you wouldn't
think of until it was too late. And it covers for different styles of parties, from a backyard reception to a fancy sit-down.
This book isn't just for weddings, I'll use it again and again for all our large gatherings. Alison W., Mars,
If you have been searching in vain for a
wedding resource that is truly helpful and practical, you can stop looking! This book covers every aspect of planning a wedding
reception that you can imagine. The authors have done the hardest part for you: planned menus, compiled lists of groceries
and needed items for different sizes of receptions, designed table set-up and room arrangement plans, etc. Everything is done
in a step-by-step manner, so that even if you've never attempted anything of this sort before, you are soon brimming with
confidence that you CAN accomplish this challenge. This book is by far the most useful of the many that I have examined and
I recommend it without reservation to anyone who wants to have a wonderful reception without the ensuing debt that so often
follows. If in doubt, buy it! I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. Pamela C., Norfolk, VA
