We have very high standards for service, presentation, communication, friendliness, and all the other things that make up a great caterer, so we were pleasantly surprised when Elizabeth and her staff met and even exceeded our expectations.
In planning our event, Elizabeth met all of our needs from working with and improving the menu we had already designed, to using more than one rental company so we could have just the right tent, table settings, etc., for our large outdoor wedding. We had originally planned to work with a different caterer, but chose to work with Elizabeth instead because she was so accommodating, and her prices were far more reasonable.
Our wedding and reception went off perfectly and we have both Elizabeth and the weather to thank. We would recommend her to anyone contemplating a celebration large or small.

Wow! A double-winner!
The stuffed mushrooms were sensational. You joined the clean plate club! And the fruit and cheese platter was perfect. Everything was at the peak of perfection!
Thanks so much!

Elizabeth catered our daughter's wedding - 160 people, outdoor wedding, tent reception. We had a sit down dinner. Elizabeth made the whole process go beautifully. From the moment we met her and sampled food to the big event, we enjoyed the process and the results. The food was delicious, the buffet was beautiful. Elizabeth was easy to work with, thought of every detail and created a calm atmosphere in which to work and our guests to enjoy themselves. I highly recommend her - she's a gem! I'd hire her again in a heart beat.

Whatever would we have done without Elizabeth? How could we have had our wedding? Elizabeth took care of us from the day we met at the Bridal Expo until the very last piece of wedding cake was whisked away. She understood our unique culinary needs and our budgetary restrictions. She never tried to sell us something we didn't ask for, or pressure us into biting off more than we could figuratively chew. And best of all, Elizabeth's generous heart and kind spirit rescued our day, astonished our guests, and left everyone wonderfully sated. I would, and have, recommended Elizabeth to friends for their weddings and other special occasions. Here's to you, Elizabeth!!

Catering and Event Planning provided the catering services for an outdoor wedding for my son and now daughter in law in a farm field with a tent for the reception. Obviously the affair took a bit of improvisation for all. Elizabethan Fare provided the food and servers and there were virtually no problems. I made all of the arrangements via the phone and internet so it could not have been simpler. Best wedding I ever attended thanks in no small part to Elizabethan Fare.

Elizabethan Fare catered my fall wedding in 2010. Elizabeth worked with me to create just the Vermont-inspired fall dinner that I wanted for my reception within my budget. Despite the very muddy ground under the tent, Elizabeth Warner and her staff did a wonderful job - professional, efficient and the food was delicious! She even had a staff person pointing out a rock in the ground near where we had to put the buffet line so no guests (or the bride) tripped. They thought of everything. My wedding guests are still raving about the food especially the apple crisp and homemade cinnamon ice cream!

Elizabeth,Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for doing such an amazing job with our wedding preparations and fabulous food. Everybody raved about your cooking and said it was the tastiest wedding they've ever been to! We can't thank you enough.

The food, service, and presentation were EXTRAORDINARY, Elizabeth!!! I can't tell you how impressed I, and everyone else in attendance, was! You and your staff are remarkable!

Elizabeth Warner is a caterer extraordinaire! Not only does she plan and execute a fabulous wedding, she heads off any last minute disasters with grace and aplomb. Our daughter's wedding was a dream come true in no small measure due to Elizabeth and her wonderful staff! She is a true professional with unprecedented caring for both her clients and all party details.

The food was so delicious and so elegantly displayed. The event was a wonderful success. Thank you so much - it's been a pleasure working with you.
~ Sara Coffee, Board of Trustees,
The food was wonderful in all aspects, quality, presentation and quantity. It was delightful to have such tasty appetizers during our meeting! The board members were surprised to hear that the cost was approximately the same as what we were paying for the deli food. Thank you for creating a fabulous spread!
I look forward to having you continue to make our meetings scrumptious!

Planning a wedding from out of town can be stressful. However, Elizabeth Warner, Chef Owner of Elizabethan Fare Catering, made everything go smoothly and put my mind at ease every step of the way. Not only is she a terrific party planner, offering her expert advice, she is also a terrific chef. The food at our wedding was delicious and memorable. My now husband and I wanted a menu that we designed ourselves and Elizabeth was easily able to understand the vision of our wedding and what the food should be like. Elizabeth was easy to work with and offered an understandable bill- something difficult to find with a caterer. I am very happy with my experience. Elizabeth will create just what you want while helping you make the right decisions around food and all aspects of your wedding. I heartily recommend her to you.

Elizabethan Fare provided our event with an exceptional display of food. The quality, array, presentation and professionalism was first rate and I would use them again in a heartbeat: for a wedding, anniversary, graduation, bar/bat mitzvah, etc!

The folks at Elizabethan Fare were wonderful, assisting me to prepare delicious menus ahead of time then being prompt, efficient and professional at my home.
They went over and above the call of duty, not only creating fabulous hors d'oeuvres and meals that my guests talked about for days afterwards, but also lavishly and tastefully decorating my house and taking over completely - serving, uncorking bottles, making coffee, and cleaning up thoroughly and quietly, so as not to disturb my guests. I do not have to look further for "my caterer!"
