Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was just the most wonderful party...better than we could have ever expected. We absolutely could not have done it without you! The food was not only gorgeous to look at, but a party in our mouths. The decor was stunningly simple and so "us." Everyone is still raving about you! I also want to thank you for hiring the most wonderful staff...what a friendly bunch you have! From the chefs, to the servers, to the bartenders...each person was more lovely than the next. I hope we can request the same awesome crew next year! We plan to make this an annual gathering and wouldn't have anyone else but Truffleberry Market. A million thanks,

Andrea and Jim Thome, Burr Ridge

After interviewing nearly every wedding caterer in Chicago, my husband and I chose Truffleberry to cater our September wedding and I am so glad we did. I can't say enough about Brittany and her team, but I will try!

First, Brittany: She went above and beyond from day one and was such a calming presence throughout our planning process--always quick to respond to emails and so easy to work with. On the wedding day she arrived early and stayed until the last guest departed (at 3am!). I knew that I had nothing to worry about as long as Brittany was in charge.

Second, the food: We and our families were absolutely blown away at our tasting, and were so thrilled with how everything turned out at the wedding. Our guests still have not stopped talking about how delicious our food was, and several have wondered how they possibly served nearly 300 guests such flavorful, warm food! Thank you, Truffleberry!! We are so lucky to have worked with you!

Brittany, my most sincere thanks to you all for making our luncheon so fun and seamless. The ladies had a wonderful time and I so enjoyed myself. The menu you planned was wonderful. Your presentation was fabulous and your warm genial manner is so lovely to work with. You can be sure, I'll be calling again very soon. It is the mark of excellence on your part when I have to think up a reason for a party just to have you back in my home!

Barbara Feldman, Hinsdale

 

By far, the most excellent service and food experience I have ever had. I think every single one of my guests told me at some point how impressed they were with the food and service. I could not believe how clean my house was at the end of the night. You guys definitely made my life easier that night! Honestly, I could not have asked for more.

What a wonderful event! We've had a number of people call just to comment on the wonderful food and gracious service Truffleberry Market Team members provided. Thank you so much for making this a very special event for Ryan and Laura. We are excited about the chance to tell our firends about you and everything you do!

As expected, EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect!

Brittany, it was so delightful to meet you this weekend at Oakwood Farm. I have been planning events for over 30 years and I can say without hesitation that you and your team are culinary rock stars! The sumptuous food, presentation and waitstaff were of the highest caliber! When a bowl of water was brought out for my dog....that was service extraordinaire for everyone on two legs and four as well! Props to your entire team.....I see wonderful things continuing in your future!

Truffleberry Market might just be the Alinea of caterers. Whether it's creating savory macarons made from beets and goat cheese or serving cake pops that look like ice cream cones, chefs/owners Brittany Ferrin and Vaidotas Karsokas are redefining the boundaries of catering just like Grant Achatz and his crew is redefining restaurants.
Michael Nagrant, Chicago Social Brides

We want to thank all of you for the absolutely wonderful job you did at our party last Saturday night. You all exceeded our expectations and we thank you for that. The food was just outstanding and Vaido did a wonderful job in the kitchen, making us all feel the love that he puts into his preparation and presentation. The staff members were outstanding, so attentive, friendly and just wonderful. The clean up was amazing too, everything was in perfect order for me to just skip up to bed once everyone left! Thank you so very much, lots of love and appreciation!

Jane and Don Brooks, Hinsdale

 
We truly do not know how to begin to thank you and your wonderful staff for an absolutely memorable and beautiful evening! Even from our initial discussions, you understood exactly what type of party we wanted to have and you created an unbelievable menu and event that you and your staff planned and executed to perfection.  Everything from the incredibly delicious food to your friendly, warm, attentive and professional staff was AMAZING !!  You and your staff were truly wonderful to work with and I can't tell you how many compliments we received about everything! We loved all the special little touches and your attention to detail. You handled everything so perfectly and professionally that we were able to relax and enjoy every moment with our guests. Thank you, thank you for making it everything that we envisioned and hoped for the evening to be.
Jacki Hayes, Western Springs
Thank you!  What a wonderful evening. I was so impressed by you and your staff.  I have never received so many compliments about an event.  Over and over I heard how attentive and kind staff were to guests. How fantastic the food tasted. I'm just trying to think of another event I can plan to work with you again. 

Thank you for all your hard work and especially for listening.  You truly understood what we wanted from this  party.  It was completely quiet when we blessed the house--that takes talent as your entire staff was preparing to serve 100+ people. I know we will give you and your very talented employees the highest recommendation. We are desperately trying to concoct a reason to use you again and will call you as soon as we think of a good excuse.
 Tom and Holly Carr, Chicago
Everything was amazing! We were all beyond impressed...the service, the food, the presentation and the clean up and exit... I have done nothing but rave about you guys.

I will definitely be calling you in the future for other events...as well as other guests at the party! Thanks again for everything. It was a very special day for us and you only made it that much more special!
 Tracey Parillo, Oak Brook
We were absolutely thrilled with EVERYTHING related to our event.  Dinner was delicious, the service was impeccable, and everyone had a wonderful time.  Thank you so much for creating such a magnificent  and memorable event for everyone.

Thank you so much for a wonderful event!  You did all the work and I got all the credit!! Everything went so smoothly, the staff could not have been more helpful or efficient, they were always one step ahead of any needs/wants that arose.  The food was delicious, perfect temperature and beautifully presented. Vaido even delivered on the perfect weather, as promised. I enjoyed my guests and you did the rest. Oh and that cake, amazing AND delicious, sooooo delicious.  I think you are my new best friend!

Last night was wonderful.  Everything was simply perfect.  The staff was delightful and so well organized;  ever present but unobtrusive. Nothing but accolades all around.  The food was delicious, the menu was really perfect and the combinations of food/flavors were lovely. Truly, we (the hostess') are all so grateful for your wonderful presences out here in catering. Again, my sincere thanks. I look forward to our next collaboration!
-Barbara Feldman, Hinsdale

I just wanted to thank you again for putting together an absolutely incredible menu for our H.Bloom event! Our entire team was so pleased with the creativity, display, and of course how great all of the dishes tasted.  It was such a pleasure working with your entire team – from start to finish, we were so impressed with your team’s organization, expertise and smooth execution of the entire event.

-Lindsay Alix, Skirt PR, Chicago
 
Everything for the wedding exceeded my expectations! What was remarkable was that we received four star professionalism AND charming personalities as well. The staff was so kind and pleasant and my friends absolutely fell in love with all of them. They made us all feel that there was nowhere that they would rather be...we felt it was hearfelt and genuine too, and that is something that you cannot find, even at four star hotels!  I described your service as something like a Mary Poppins experience. You swooped in driving your Truffleberry van, and turned everything into a magical and beautiful experience. I was sorry to see you drive away. Thank-you again from all of us...you made the day a truly memorable and personal experience that we will never forget.
-Carol Cornelius, Hinsdale

Truffleberry- Thanks for a fantastic event, you guys are absolutely amazing.  The next morning my husband declared we will never again have a catered event by anyone other than Truffleberry Market!  Although it sounded funny to hear HIM say it, I completely agree...from now on, you will always be our first (and only) choice!

-Christy Rothkopf, Clarendon Hills
 
A HUGE thank you to you and your entire team, another flawless event! We love working with Truffleberry Market and know we have total confidence in a professional and fun event!
-Erin Brophy, Zeno Group PR, Chicago

Truffleberry, 

What a wonderful party! From start to finish, everything was seamless. The food was amazing and the staff was always one step ahead. We got compliments throughout  the party and days after! I really don't have much experience with just turning it all over, but I must say it allowed me to enjoy my guests and myself! Thanks again for a fabulous night.

-Robin McCarthy, Burr Ridge

Just wanted to send a note to let you know what a great job you did at the "Unbore the Floor" and thank you for helping make last night such a success.
The food was great and servers very professional and responsive to the crowd.  You even went so far as to continue to ask if I wanted anything.  How sweet of you, especially since I was so involved in the evening that I was too busy to think of it myself.  I need you at my next party at home!!!
I appreciate everything you did to make the evening go off without a hitch.
-Debbie Smith, Vecco Design Studio Manager, Chicago

Our  party was a HUGE success in every way!  Everything turned out just how I had hoped!  Thanks again to you and your amazing team!

I cannot even begin to tell you how incredibly impressed I was with the food and service we experienced. The meal was fabulous!! We were so incredibly happy with our dining experience.

Dear Truffleberry, 

Thank you so much for making our daughter's dream wedding come true! It was a magical day with memories that we will treasure forever. 

The Miller Family, Wheaton

 

My Truffleberry Market catered party was the best!  They literally took care of everything in addition to preparing and serving fabulous food.  The staff was professional, polite, very pleasant and preformed above and beyond the call of duty.  I had a fabulous time at my own party!

- Mary Steinberg, Chicago

Brittany and Vaidotas create magical evenings with the best service I have seen in 25 years of entertaining. Their food is imaginative, wholesome and a real conversation starter for the guests. Brittany guides her staff like a captain on a luxury cruise ship, while Vaidotas runs a "four star" kitchen in your own home.

- Teri and Chuck Goudie, Hinsdale

I had a wonderful experience with Truffleberry Market. From the planning stages of the party through the night of the event, they were always available and checking in to see if I needed anything. Their menu was fantastic and the service was great. They have a great attention to detail. Even the little touches that were not food related were taken care of by them. I would highly recommend Truffleberry Market for your next gathering!

-Therese Rooney, Hinsdale

Brittany and Vaido, Thank you for being such a special part of our 50th wedding anniversary party.  The food was wonderful and presented in such an artistic way.  The combinations of flavors, high quality of food and variety of choices satisfied everyone.  The service was incredibly well done.  For once, we felt like guests in our own home.  Your attentiveness, delightful good humor and incredible hard work to coordinate everything in a very fluid time frame was great. We have had such positive comments from everyone that was here.  I certainly look forward to using you again! Thank you for your delicious food and friendship.
-Jane and Roger Youngs, Hinsdale

Brittany and Vaido, I Just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful dinner on Saturday night.  All of our guests told us how much they enjoyed the food - and I know that we certainly did!  The service was also wonderful.  We were able to relax and enjoy our guests knowing that the kitchen was in good hands.  Thank you so much!
- Barbara Johannesen, Hinsdale

"Truffleberry Market merits the highest recommendation!  My husband and I hired Brittany and Vaido to cater a large engagement party we hosted for our son and his fiancee.  For the month leading up to the event, Brittany guided me every step of the way in planning the party:  making detailed decisions about the food selections, creating new recipes that complemented our Caribbean theme, determining the amount of food needed (and being flexible about that as my numbers changed in the days leading up to the party), suggesting layout in the party space, and clarifying aspects of entertaining a large group (number of servers, timing of set up, schedule for serving appetizers, dinner and dessert, etc.). The evening of the event, she and Vaido (in his crisp white toque!) arrived with their personable staff and put everything in place, made final touches, lit candles, and were ready to go with appetizers shortly after the first guests arrived.  And, when they left at the end of the night, the kitchen was spotless.  All the guests who called or wrote to us in the days following the party raved about the delicious food!"

- Denise Noell, Hinsdale

"We hired Truffleberry Market for our welcome Party when we moved to Chicago. I love to entertain, but sometimes have trouble enjoying my own party while fussing over the details. As soon as Brittany and Vaido arrived I completely relaxed. They are so talented and professional and completely took care of everything- it immediately put me at ease. The food was absolutely incredible and beautifully laid out. It was the most fun I have ever had as a hostess. I now find myself looking for excuses to celebrate so that I can work with them again!"

-Bailey McCarthy, Chicago

"I couldn't have been happier with the experience I had from Truffleberry Market. From the taste of the food to the wonderful service they delivered- made our event a memorable occasion. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for food that looks great, tastes exceptional and is so well presented. All of our guests were very impressed!"

- Matt & Tamra Nathan, Chicago

"We called Brittany and Vaido at the last minute to help us with a luncheon for 100 people.  They didn't even hesitate and organized every last detail -- everything from renting furniture, glassware, and linens- to planning a wonderful menu.  The day of the luncheon they came and set everything up and the house looked beautiful.  Our guests commented over and over how delicious the food was and how professional Brittany and Vaido were.  They really went above and beyond."

- Sara and Matt Joyce, Hinsdale

Brittany and Vaido,
Thank you so much for helping make my party a huge success! The food, your amazing attention to detail, and your professionalism allowed my husband and I to be guests in our own home. We are still receiving rave reviews from guests which is the true sign of a great party. We will certainly use your business again and will highly recommend your services to all of our friends. Thanks for making it a very special night for everyone."
- Jennifer W. Frank, Downers Grove

I hired Truffleberry Market for several parties hosted in my home.  Getting comfortable with a new caterer is always a touchy process—not only do I have high expectations but I also want a continued reputation for fun and lively parties with great food. The food was so artistically presented, the table was styled beautifully and the food was beyond delicious.  People raved about the menus customized for the event—different and interesting food, not the same old fare you see with other caterers.

 I was also pleased that the onsite chefs kept a low profile, graciously refilling wine and cleaning up without intrusion.  This is a key issue with me so that I can be the most relaxed hostess and truly interact with my guests.  Whether it’s a business event or a personal one, I will call on them many times in the future. They certainly make entertaining worry-free and fun!

- Kathryn Vander Zanden, Harris Private Bank

I've attended many catered events over the years, but this was the only one (besides my own wedding!) where I've been blown away by the experience.  Of course, kudos was given to the host and hostess for a magical evening, but the food, service, and the presentation given by Truffleberry was exceptional. The choice of food and wine pairings was so original, the presentation of the food was unique and the flavor and taste of each course was incredible.

 The staff was so responsive and attentive, yet never overwhelming or overbearing.  I have since recommended Truffleberry to friends and colleagues and will continue to do so.

- Lara Matricaria, Wit's End Gifts

We all loved the food and the service was impeccable! When they left, my kitchen looked exactly as they found it. We also hired them to cook for a heavy appetizer Holiday party for 50. The table was kept full and neat and never looked picked over. The menus Truffleberry comes up with are perfect for us. I never had to worry about one thing, Truffleberry handled it all. Our next dinner party will definitely be by Truffleberry Market!
