What Our Guests Say

5/5
“Could not have been calmer and worry free for a bride to be! From the first initial appointment, crazy phone calls and emails ( obviously on my end) for my own reassurance. Then to arrive at the reception area ... I can’t even say with words how appreciative I am to have this kind of service states away (from Utah to Washington ).. I have previously been to an event catered by Culinary Concepts. Not sure how to stress enough the level of professionalism this guy delivers! A Million Thanks!.”

"Love the staff, very professional and the food is worth it. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a catering company to help with any type of party. John is very talented at what he does and the people he has working for him are polite and very helpful.”

John and Culinary Concepts do a wonderful job! He's done several events for me including a Family memorial service, a catered lunch for a golf tournament and my wedding. At each event he made sure every detail was taken care of. Everything was beautiful and delicious followed up with great customer service. I appreciate his attention to detail and his culinary skills. Cache Valley is lucky to have Culinary Concepts.
