  • The food was outstanding - everyone at the wedding couldn't stop talking about it. Gretchen was so lovely and easy to work with and handled hurdles beautifully. I can't say enough good things about them.

  • From start to finish, working with the Porch catering is a pleasure. We've had them cater our organization's annual meeting for the past two years and received countless compliments on the beautiful, delicious, local, high quality food. The Porch staff are consummate professionals as well.

  • I cannot adequately express how thrilled we were with Hardy-Foard Catering, Gretchen and her team. They catered our wedding reception on 8/10/19 We knew things would be good- the other reviews made that clear. But even with our high expectations they were exceeded. Every single thing was delicious- and I tried everything. And there was a good deal of creativity and beautiful presentation rolled in as well. I received endless compliments from guests- some went so far as to request the caterer's information. On top of that, pricing was really reasonable compared to other places we looked at. Gretchen and her staff were super responsive and helpful the day of, so everything ran smoothly as well. All in all, I was blown away. And honestly the food was so good we are now planning to pop by the restaurant from time to time (even though it is 1.5 hours away).

  • Boy oh boy did we get treated by one of the finest caterers! Of the things most important to us in our wedding, food was at the top of the list and wow was the food beyond what we could have imagined! Not only were the passed hors d’oeuvres presented beautifully, they all tasted fantastic too! Top that with a Raw bar filled with oysters on the half shell, and a separate area for the charcuterie platter, neither we nor our guests were sure how the dinner could be topped…but it was! The back and front kitchen staff worked to perfect execution and not one single guest was disappointed in the least! Furthermore, Gretchen was attentive to the needs of guests with more restrictive diets so that everything went smoothly without a hitch. We cannot recommend the Porch Café and Catering enough!

  • Hardy Foard Catering was absolutely amazing for our wedding events. They catered our rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, and post-wedding brunch. Hardy Foard had an incredible selection of delicious foods and it was easy to work with Gretchen to figure out what dishes to have for our events. Everything we ate was delicious and our guests raved about all of the food. Gretchen was so responsive to our needs and anticipated things we needed for our event. Her staff was friendly and professional and they helped all of our events run smoothly. Her expertise in the industry was evident and we benefited from it. I highly recommend Gretchen for any couple looking for an outstanding caterer to provide a delicious meal that will delight your guests.

  • We couldn't have been happier with our wedding menu! We went with a variety of foods, and every one of them were prepared fresh and cooked to perfection. Gretchen was also kind enough to add a special item for us as an appetizer. We received countless compliments on the food throughout the night, and every member of the staff was very professional and highly organized, ensuring that everything ran smooth from start to finish.

  • We cannot say enough great things about working with Gretchen and Hardy Foard Catering for our wedding. Our wedding meal was a very important aspect of the day for us, and Gretchen exceeded our expectations in terms of the food and the service. For our wedding, we really wanted to have a family-style menu/meal (for 180+ guests), but finding a vendor who executed that well was key (and somewhat difficult to find!). Gretchen's expertise came through in the planning process and we trusted her vision. At our tasting, she spent time making us feel comfortable with how a family-style meal would work, asking us our opinions on the food, and really customizing the menu to our taste. She was also very responsive leading up to the wedding, taking into consideration dietary needs, and adjusting the menus as needed. It made us feel so confident going into the wedding weekend! Dinner was incredible, came out at the right time, was hot and our guests couldn't stop raving about the food. In ad... Read more

  • We hired Gretchen at Hardy Foard Catering on the advice of our wedding planner, Jen at Memorable Events. We love food, and we wanted the food to be delicious, but we also wanted to keep to our budget. Gretchen helped us create a delicious menu within our budget that would keep all of our guests satisfied. Truly, our friends are still raving to us about how good our food was. We have heard from quite a few of them that it was the best wedding food ever!

  • We worked with Hardy Foard for our wedding and Gretchen and her team were incredible!! I could not recommend them more strongly for any occasion! First and foremost - our guests kept raving about all of the food - it was amazing. We had a 200 person wedding and they managed to make the food taste delicious and perfect temperature for every single guest on time (despite weather issues). We had an incredible branzino rehearsal dinner where they roasted entire fish and then filleted it table-side (so classy), and peach caprese, kale salad, beef tenderloin and roast chicken and veggies wedding dinner, followed by an incredible ice cream sundae bar. Everything was AMAZING. Second, we were dealing with touch and go weather and trying to have an outdoor wedding. Gretchen and her team went so far above and beyond to make our outdoor wedding happen. It was honestly so much more amazing than we even imagined in our heads! From when the wedding forecast came out until that Saturday night w... Read more

  • My husband and I used The Porch to cater our Vermont wedding last month after they were recommended to us by everyone in the Brattleboro neighborhood! My husband is a chef so we wanted to make sure we found a catering place that lived up to his standards, and we absolutely did! Gretchen is absolutely wonderful to work with, she was extremely helpful and dependable thought the whole process. In addition to her and her team's wonderful service, our guests couldn't stop talking about how great the food was. My dad even said that this was the best food he has ever had at a wedding and we couldn't agree more. We have already been recommended them to everyone!

  • We hired Gretchen and her team to cater our wedding and it blew our expectations out of the water. She put together what aren't considered "basic" wedding dishes and truly elevated the plates. The appetizers and main dishes were out of this world - she even infused butters for the local bread at the tables. Every detail was so amazing and everyone was raving about the food and presentation all night! She is so talented and will cater your dishes to exactly what you want - she truly wants you to be happy with the food. I may be biased, but I think her dishes were by far the best wedding food I've ever had. I would highly suggest using her if you need a caterer!

  • Gretchen and her team were truly amazing! I can't even count how many people told me during and after the wedding that Gretchen's food was the best they have ever had at a wedding. Gretchen went above and beyond every step of the way, from the fantastic tasting we did to changing her recipes to meet our personal food preferences, making a site visit to ensure we had everything we need to clean up the next day. I was also surprised at how reasonable her prices were! The quality of food for such a low cost was outstanding! I couldn't recommend Gretchen and Hardy Foard Catering more! Thank you Gretchen!

  • Gretchen is absolutely amazing. Not only does she make extremely good fresh food, she knows how to make weddings run smoothly and she is helpful with any and all logistics. She takes care of details you would never think of and is really a pleasure to work with. She just has a great style and personality to go along with her culinary talents. We could not have been more happy with the food, and with our whole experience working with Gretchen.

  • Everyone from our wedding said that this was the best food they had ever had at a catered event. Gretchen is super easy to work with, and is open to changes and accommodations. She was even happy to mail us a large item that got misplaced in all the post-wedding confusion because we do not live nearby. Bear in mind that wedding season is incredibly busy thus resulting in small delays in email responses, however nothing out of the ordinary given how busy she gets. Not to be forgotten - her team is equally as amazing and made sure I was fed and watered while taking pictures. Easily one of the best choices we made for our wedding.

  • Hardy Foard catering did an excellent job for our wedding reception - both the food and service were great. They were very easy to work with to set up a meal to our liking (though sometimes slow to email, they always answered the phone). They were prompt and kept right to schedule throughout the event, and their appetizer display was beautiful. They were also able to easily accommodate the guests that needed to have gluten and dairy free meals.
