Beautiful Event at PEM

We received this lovely email "thank you" today and thought we would add it to this post:

Hi Lindsay

I'm slowly coming back down to earth after all the festivities.  Everyone was way beyond delighted with everything - tell Rhiannon that the food was absolutely delicious and we received many compliments.  All the staff were unfailingly courteous and good humoured and everyone worked hard to make this a wonderful occasion for Jonny and Carra.  Thank you all, so very, very much,

Best wishes,


We love sharing what we do, and especially like to do that when our guests go out of their way to collaborate with us in creating something especially beautiful, and/or truly unique.

That was the case last night with a special event we created and catered at PEM (Peabody Essex Museum.)  We want to give a particular "shout out" to Lindsay Otis, our Senior Catering Sales Manager, and Rhinanon Nowak, our PEM Chef, who worked together to create such a lovely affair.
