More on our Catering Services & Tasting Menus….As a reminder, we provide a wide range of catering services. Here is a recent testimonial from a client of our full service tasting menu offering:

“We used CookDC for my husband’s 40th birthday party. [CookDC] put together an amazing menu that worked in everything we asked for and so much more!…..everything was fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I can’t wait to use them again!” Well, that seems positive… (….and that is not just because we would only include positive testimonials!).

When we do private tasting dinners, the menu is always customized for the client and the event. Below is a sample tasting menu for a client that wanted to celebrate “America.” Note: This menu came out well before Pitch Perfect 3, so if anything, Fat Amy copied us….not that we went to see Pitch Perfect 3….or 2….or the original Pitch Perfect…. oh, well….here is the menu:
