What our clients have to say:

Rita Welch’s catering of my recent wedding brought unanimous approval from the wide range of people attending.  Her planning and execution, working with three experienced and friendly associates, fit perfectly with our day of celebration.  

The luncheon meal, with two entrees, stands out as one of the best meals we will have this year, fancy restaurants notwithstanding.  With this all at a very reasonable cost, I cannot recommend her more highly.
— Ron Jones

Rita and her staff made Saturday night even more special than it was with the creative and delicious cuisine and the incredibly friendly and efficient service.

I can’t begin to thank Rita enough for doing such an exceptional job (and that from real foodies)!  Our guests are raving about Rita’s catering.

What made it even greater was the fact that Rita was so well organized, confident, and creative.  Paul and I couldn’t have been more pleased.
— Sue Epstein

Rita Welch is one of the most professional caterers I have ever worked with. Her staff is lovely, the food more than delicious and her sense of style create a party that anyone would be thrilled and proud to host.
— Bunny Williams

David and I can’t thank you enough for the extraordinary job you did. The food was incredible; the staff so lovely and professional.

You project such a feeling of ease and competence. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed a party at our house as much as this one.

Again, it was absolutely wonderful and we owe it all to you!
— Kathy Conway

We are very grateful for all you did to make my daughter’s wedding such a success. From that moment we met you, we knew we were in good hands. All your glowing references reassured us and set a high bar, but you surpassed all of our expectations.

The smooth organization, professionalism, culinary talent, loving presentation and efficient service were all superb! Compliments have been rolling in.

We will savor the delicious food in our memories and cannot thank you enough for all you did, many things beyond the expected. I hope we can keep in touch personally and professionally for years to come. Thank you!
— Mother of the Bride

Whether a small family gathering, a festive party for friends or a wedding reception for my son, Rita’s food was exceptional. Rita is easy to work with and open to suggestions and new ideas all the time. Not only is the food excellent, but the presentation is truly a work of art. I always look forward to working with Rita and her wonderful staff and have recommended her on numerous occasions.

Having a party with Rita as the caterer takes the worry out of the biggest part of party planning.
— Susan Peisner

I have had the pleasure of working with Rita personally for almost twenty years. She has catered many events in my home, from dinner parties for 12 to buffets for 65 guests. I have also engaged her services, in various locations, for organization events, and especially the Volunteers in Medicine Gala. The last one had 200 attendees.

I have unconditionally recommended her many times, including to a friend hosting a small informal brunch and one hosting a lavish wedding for 175 guests. She never fails to satisfy!

Rita is not only an exceptional, accomplished chef; her work is creative and sophisticated, and every single dish looks beautiful and appetizing. Her service staff is outstanding. She is a joy to work with, and an asset to the Berkshires.
