Chef Mandy is a delight to work with! Her ability to present food with an artistic flare is what sets her apart from other caterers. Our patrons are continually giving us rave reviews on the food and wine that she selects. The beautiful presentation and fantastic flavors make "The Inspired Gourmet" the only one we use at our many gallery shows.
For the past three years it has been our pleasure to have Mandy Braidic cater our company party. She always exceeds our expectations in terms of quality, service and fun. We appreciate her menu flexibility, professionalism and the pride she takes in creating flavorful dishes.
Cheers to Mandy!
