Host a rehersal dinner at our house for 65 people, piece of cake with Gourmet in a Pinch. Paul came a few days early, scoped everything out, made some sugestions, and "BAM" pulled it off without a hitch! Food was fantastic, staff was great, food was fantastic, tables,chairs,and linens perfect, food was fantastic, cleanup done complete, and by the way, food was fantastic!
Paul and Chef Charisa, and their staff worked hard, but may it look easy, we could not have pulled it off with out them! If anyone left hungry,it was their own fault! Thanks Gourmet in a Pinch! BTW. FOOD WAS FANTASTIC!

Our Wedding was August 4th 2012. Gourmet in a Pinch far exceeded our expectations! Paul and Chef Charisa are an excellent team, and the rest of their wait staff were friendly and efficient. Our guests raved about the service, and everyone couldn't have been more impressed by how elegantly and quickly the food was served. The food was nice and hot, and it was hands down the best catered food we had ever had. The beef tenderloin was juicy, cooked to perfection and so tender it could be cut with a fork. People are still raving about the appetizers and the dinner. Gourmet in a Pinch took care of everything from the food to the tables, chairs, linens and table settings. We asked for modifications to their original plans and they were more than happy to make changes to make sure our wedding was what we had envisioned. We would highly recommend them!

The Gourmet in a Pinch team catered my daughter’s outdoor wedding at a beautiful old farm in Maine. The food was delicious, the service superb, and Paul’s and Chef Charisa’s help and guidance were wonderful. Several other caterers were daunted by the lack of a kitchen and other facilities, but Paul was enthusiastic from the start! We provided a 20x20 tent, water and electricity, and they did the rest! GIP brought tables, chairs, linens, plates, glassware, silverware, food, beer, wine and more. The hors d’oeuvres were hot, the dinners perfect, and all was beautifully and cheerfully served. MANY guests commented on the excellent food and service. We are grateful to Paul, Chef Charisa and the entire team for a really lovely event.

Drove by a number of times on the way elsewhere, glad we stopped this time. Above average sandwiches, panninis, and thoughtful preppared food to go, or eat out front on nice stone picnic tables. Good carry-out wine and beer selections. Friendly and accommodating. Ice cream to boot.

We are in Bethel for a few days at our second home. After going out for a few meals, it was nice to pick up restaurant quality food and eat at home. We had clam chowder (very good), Thai Coconut Chicken (tasty & fresh) and a heavenly chocolate mousse. We'll be back!
