Letters of Appreciation


Berkeley Yacht Club, 150 guests

Hi Russell,

We both want to give another big THANKS! for all the amazing work you and your excellent staff did for our wedding.  From helping us find the location of the Berkeley Yacht Club (which was perfect!), to working with us on the menu to keep within our budget, to coordinating the various rentals and through to the end of the reception, you were always a pleasure to work with.  We really appreciated your responsiveness and we definitely got the feeling that you truly cared and only wanted the best for us.  To top it all off, the food was absolutely amazing!  All our guests raved about the creativity of the meal and quality of the service.

So, thanks again and best wishes!

Dear Russell,

Thank you so much for all of your efforts in creating a truly special New Mexican dinner and afternoon reception for our wedding. People are still talking about the tamale pie and the guacamole, even the native New Mexicans who were impressed with your use of the authentic green chiles.

Our wedding was large and raucous and yet your service was professional, plentiful and cheerful. We had a magical day and were well fed. We have referred you on to other friends and vendors for their future projects. We will miss having you drop by for the tastings.

Rachel & Jake

North Berkeley House Parties, 25 – 50 Guests

Dear Russell and Company,

Throughout many years now, Howard and I have held some of the most significant and celebratory events at our house while enjoying your extraordinary catering.

Memorable were two presidential inaugurations of Barack Obama and Howard’s 70th birthday.

Talk about milestones!!

How you managed to set up in our kitchen and patio and throughout our whole house so that people could roam, eat, drink and joke around–is beyond me, and there is no way at all we could have had these “free-floating” events without you all.  We’ve loved your many great finger foods with international flair, not to mention consistently delicious entrees and desserts that we selected from all kinds of choices.

We send our best wishes that many more people will enjoy the delicious expertise of Flavors!!!

Training Workshop Lunches, Berkeley, 29 Participants

I had Flavors Catering provide lunches for 4 days of a training I gave in Berkeley in February, 2016.  We had 29 participants, many with specific dietary needs.  Russell Bass and his team did an excellent job of delivering delicious food each day, right on time.  Everyone was pleased with the food, and the attention to their diets. I would recommend their catering services with confidence.
