  • Don't hesitate to book with Chowhound Gourmet. They are attentive, creative, and cater to you and your guests with so much attention to detail. You can taste and see the love and attention that goes into Chef John's food. I would never consider anyone else to cater my events. Chowhound Gourmet is the absolute best there is!

  • Chowhound was absolutely excellent. The food was delicious and while they were setting up, to my knowledge, there were no major hiccups. John was very accommodating to a few last minute changes I made. His staff was also super friendly and my guest really enjoyed all the services they provided. A few of my guest are still raving about the food! Would highly recommend.

  • Chowhound Gourmet was an invaluable investment for our wedding. When my husband and I began planning our wedding, one of our top three priorities was the food. We enjoy having experiences around food, and we wanted to curate a dining experience that reflected our enthusiasm for food and combat the typical yet disappointing outcome that wedding food is dry or bland with no personality. We didn’t have to worry about any of that with John. Our first insight into John’s style was his creative and delicious-sounding sample and seasonal menus on his website. Even with those options available, John still worked with us to create a personalized menu that consisted of 3 courses – appetizers, salad, and entrée. The menu reflected our favorite foods and dishes that were exactly in line with what we enjoy eating. We also loved how we were able to tweak the menu to cater to our guests’ various diets and restrictions, including pescaterian, vegetarian/vegan, and gluten-free. Communication w... Read more

  • John at Chowhound Gourmet is the one and only caterer you need! John's food was 1000% better than the other tastings we had and the most affordable! Wedding planning score! On top of that, John was so great to work with and made great, unique menu suggestions - much more interesting (and delicious) than your standard wedding fare. Our guests loved the food and so did we! Highly recommend!

  • Chef John Breeland of Chowhound Gourmet was the best caterer, and we would recommend him 110% percent. He impressed us from the first meeting to the very last bite. I am a bit of a foodie, so the most important part of the wedding planning to me was the food. I spoke with 6 other caterers in Southeastern Michigan before finally deciding on Chef John. Not only did he have the most innovative and fun sample menus on his website, but he was able to create a personalized menu for our wedding, and even recreated some of our favorite dishes. The service that he and his staff provided on the day was impeccable. If you are getting married, you absolutely must go with Chowhound Gourmet. Few more highlights: - The food was amazing (coriander steak, burgundy braised chicken, morel risotto, wild mushroom tartlets, roasted eggplant with pomegranate, “biscuits and gravy” hors d'oeuvres…) My husband took one bite of his meal, said that he wanted to kiss the chef, and that it ranked amon...

  • We only have great things to say about Chowhound Gourmet. We booked them almost a year from our wedding date. This was easily one of the best decisions we ever made! We met John initially for our complimentary tasting. He called me to confirm the dishes we wanted to try as he was getting the ingredients fresh. We were so happy to see a lot of vegetarian-friendly items! At our wedding cocktail hour and reception, every single person was asking about the chef! They couldn’t stop talking about Chowhound Gourmet! John always made sure we were taken care of and even helped us with our rental order! Thank you to Chowhound Gourmet for your excellent service!

  • John is a great chef and communicator. He is so personable and made sure our experience for the tasting was impeccable! The portions were real dinner sizes to help us envision what the night would be like. We werent even expecting to but ended up adding extra appetizers since the service and presentation was so great! Our wedding day hasnt come up yet but so far this has been the best contact for our budget!

  • My now husband and I enjoyed working with Chowhound very much. Chef John and his staff were extremely professional the night of our wedding. During the planning process, Chef John was extremely helpful and supportive. My husband and I were looking for an Asian themed meal because we LOVE Chinese takeout. There were very few catering companies that were willing to help us do this. Chef John asked us exactly what we were looking for and designed a custom menu just for our wedding day. He made sure that all of the ingredients used were all items that we liked. After creating a menu for us, he invited us to his kitchen for a food tasting. The tasting went extremely well. We gave him our notes and made a few suggestions. The day of the wedding, our food was perfect! He took all of our suggestions into consideration and delivered. Aside from the fantastic food, Chef was extremely responsive. He answered all of our texts, emails, and calls in a timely manor. While we decided to... Read more

  • Ohmigosh! I can't say enough great things about John. From our first appointment- where he cooked a full on meal for the trial- through the check in consultations and our wedding day he made sure we had great food and service to wow our guests. I rarely eat wedding food and enjoy it, so it was important to us to have great, comfort food. John even fulfilled my husband's request to have a soup (homemade tortilla soup) instead of a salad as an accompaniment request. Thank you John, you are the best!

  • My husband and I could have not found a better company to use for our wedding. Chef John and the Chowhound crew was the best. Great to work with. So easy, professional and accommodating. We had two or three themes for our menu which Chef John executed perfectly. The food was great and so was the service. We would recommend Chowhound Gourmet to anyone we know. And plan to use them for our upcoming events, if he is available.

  • We met with Chef John over a year before our wedding. It was one of the first tastings we went to and we went in saying we aren't going to be impulsive and book, but it was so terrific we didn't need to see anymore. We chose the salmon and the New York strip and both were absolutely perfect on our big day. Our reception was nearly two hours from John's kitchen yet you would've never known that it wasn't made right on site. John made a special visit to see us and our facility to get the "lay of the land" and make sure everything would work. It did. John's staff was courteous and friendly, the food was fantastic and we heard nothing but compliments from our guests and fellow foodies. I would highly recommend John and his staff for any fine dining experience. Thank you for being a part of our special day.​
