I want to thank you for the wonderful meal you prepared for our guests last week.  From the moment you and your staff arrived at my house to prepare for the evening, you were professional, yet personable, courteous and organized.

The ingredients you used were obviously top notch and it is very apparent that you take pride in the preparation and execution of your work.

The appetizers and meal were prepared to perfection and your timing was impeccable.  Every dish was better than the next and every guest was raving about your meal.

Thank you for making our party a fabulous one.  We will definitely be using you again.

I had a wonderful dinner at my house…a fantastic 7 course dinner! It was so delicious, it was in our apartment and they had savory wines with olives, foccacia, antipasto, broccoli rabe, skirt steak…it was wonderful!

After I had the great pleasure of enjoying Chef Pasquale’s amazing Southern Italian real home cooking, he really impressed me with his amazing generosity. I asked Pasquale to donate his time as a live auction item for www.alexandrasplayground.org.  He was the ‘hit’ of the evening, raising significantly more money than any other item of the auction, even more than the Tiger Woods autographed golf clubs!

Chef Pasquale prepared a meal for 30 at our home in Montauk for a Memorial Day Celebration we will never forget!

Pasquale ottimo cameriere (e anche cuoco)…

– Silvano Marchetto, Da Silvano Ristorante Toscano NYC, June 2012

Chef Pasquale prepared an exquisite Southern Italian Seafood feast for 25 at our place in the Hamptons for Labor Day. He took care of everything from menu suggestions, sourcing ingredients, prep, cooking and left the place immaculate. The food and service were exquisite. We loved the unique grilled octopus and gigantic shrimp imported from Chef’s home town of Mola di Bari (Puglia). The veal meatballs made from scratch and Pizza Rustica al Parmacotto were sooo good! People had a blast and we plan on making WarmPalate a tradition at our place.

I hired Warmpalate to cater at my recent Holiday Party. It was very clear from the start that Warmpalate’s main goal was to ensure that my husband and I had a great time at the party. The food was delicous and the presentation of the food a joy too. On top of that WarmPalate helped with serving drinks and making sure that all the guests were well looked after. The staff was curtious and very professional, and I credit Warmpalate with making the party a success. I would highly recommend this company and I have no doubt that I will be hiring them again.
