There are those who cook from the expertise gained
at prestigious culinary academies
and then there
is that elect group for whom the art of food preparation
is a complex act of love and fulfillment. It is to
this group that my friend Barbara Rochatka Riley belongs.
Barbara's food creations come from her heart and soul.

|Dear Barbara and Linda,
"The best Hors D'oeuvres we've ever had."
"The most delicious wedding cake we've ever tasted!"
Those are just a few of the superlatives Jon and I
heard about your fantastic catering job at out wedding.
Our guests were so impressed by your work, some have
even called to get your number! And in addition to
the great food, you were so organized, professional
and pleasant to work with - you really helped make
our wedding a special and memorable day. I only hope
you all are still cooking in ten years so we can work
together on our 10th Anniversary Party!
Please extend our thanks to your staff - and again,
Thank you both for making our wedding so wonderful.

We want to thank you for the great job you did with
the food at our wedding at the Codman House on July
31st. All the guests commented on how great everything
tasted. Linda did a great job organizing things and
setting up. Please pass along our thanks to her as well.
Everyone loved the cake also.

I wanted to let you know that everyone had a fabulous
time at the Annual Fund Dinner you catered. There were
so many comments about the food being so delicious and
hot! All the guests truly felt as if they were waited
on and the food was arriving with no effort.
What they didn't know is that you were cooking this
meal between three floors, dealing with antiquated
ovens and making the best in a kitchen that is just
not set up for such big occasions. I was shocked that
anyone was able to pull off such an elegant affair
in such conditions. You really did a wonderful job
and I would happily recommend you to anyone who needs
a reference. Thanks again for all your patience and
|Dear Linda and Barbara,
Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding
such a success! All of the guests remarked that the
food was just the best
and they were happy with
the way drinks and hors d'oeuvres were served as soon
as they arrived at the Habitat. And thank you, too,
for the reassuring and confident manner in which you
dealt with the others and me. It made the day the happy
and joyful event that it was. I couldn't have asked
for better! Please know I would be happy to give you
the highest recommendation to anyone who would ask.
Again, my heartfelt thanks and I hope to work with you
God Bless you both
Just a note of thanks for the fabulous dinner you did
for our parent's 25th anniversary.
This party was quite an undertaking for my sister and
I. Linda's suggestions and helpfulness kept this novice
party planner's jitters to a minimum.
The food was fantastic! The guests raved about the pumpkin/hazelnut
as well as everything else.
Thanks again, especially to Linda.
