The Fork Goes on the Left Catering


Hunting for a great caterer this holiday? The Fork Goes on the Left should be on the top of your list. We’ve used them for two gatherings and think Mellanee and her crew are top notch. Here’s the thing: When you’re hosting a party you rarely get to sit down, relax and enjoy the company of your friends. In the past I found myself fussing over details when I made things myself or answering a bajillion questions when I used a caterer. This was a new experience for me–I actually enjoyed the party and my guests!


When Mellanee is in charge, all that worry disappears. From the initial quotes to the final dish is cleaned, Mellanee is clearly and confidently in charge. No detail is overlooked. She even remembered my home’s color scheme and brought coordinating napkins on her second visit.


The food is scrumptious.  We’d steer you to the shrimp ceviche in martini glasses, the chicken skewers, the turkey meatballs and well, every dish that left the kitchen was fabulous. The ingredients are fresh and flavorful (without breaking the bank). Mellanee’s team of professionals made sure that all the drinks were expertly mixed and and the food was elegantly passed. She took a pride in catering the event as if it were in her own home.



We loved the colorful food and modern presentation. Mellanee also uses a lovely silver frame to display the evening’s menu. She brought all of her elegant glassware too–all the details were covered.

Take a look at some of the creations:

At the end of the night, the leftovers were lovingly wrapped and left in our fridge. The kitchen was cleaner that when she arrived and everyone was extremely well fed. Success from start to finish.
