Example of Review of Saveur Catering from Google Review

'“A special thanks to Melissa and her team for catering our New Orleans wedding. The food was amazing. Melissa has exquisite creativity and flawless execution. It was a pleasure to plan the menu with her, during which she was a seemingly endless source of ideas. On the day, the food and staff was nothing short of excellent. Professional and prepared, Melissa was in touch with me throughout the day. Upon arrival, her team seamlessly overcame a few last minute changes. As the bride and coordinator, I appreciated Saveur Catering’s capable performance – I did not spend a moment worrying about the food. Our families continue to rave about the food. Overall, it was a delicious, impeccable experience for our guests “

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum is a nonprofit living history organization dedicated to the discovery, understanding and celebration of the food, drink and the related culture of the South. While based in New Orleans, the Museum examines and celebrates all the cultures that have come together through the centuries to create the South’s unique culinary heritage. SoFAB also hosts special exhibits, demonstrations, lectures and tastings that showcase the food and drink of the South.

We examine:

  • The food and drink of the American South in all its aspects;
  • The many ethnicities – African-American and Caribbean, French and German, etc. -- that have combined to create unique Southern food and drink traditions;
  • The farmers, fishermen, and hunters and gatherers who have produced the food;
  • The processors, inventors, chefs and business people who run the restaurants and stock our stores with Southern products, and the home cooks and families who have passed down recipes and food traditions for generations.
