EXCEPTIONAL HOMESTYLE CUISINE

        Catering by Corey provides the ease of beautifully crafted upscale southern wedding meals sourced from local farms and artisans. With a flair for the unexpected, our family favorites will allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy the smiles our meals will bring to your friends and family.  

I would highly recommend Catering by Corey. They did a beautiful job at my daughter’s wedding! As soon as I met Corey , I felt that I could relax and that I was in good hands. She was very responsive and helped me put together a great menu for the wedding that met our needs. She was also willing to meet with me a few times before the big event which meant a lot to me. Her staff was very professional on the day of the wedding and we had a few special requests that they were happy to help us with. Our guests told us they thought the food was delicious and the whole experience was wonderful.

Corey was fantastic to work with throughout the planning and event process. We went through several renditions of our menu and set-up due to varying factors and she was always willing to work with each request. The food was great and we received many compliments from guests. Working with Corey and her team was a true pleasure and is highly recommended by us!

Corey was great to work with, clear in her communication, up front and informative. She was willing to work in our budget and her food was absolutely delicious and we are finding that we want to eat that meal over and over again (especially the gouda mac and cheese!). On the day of, her team was professional, friendly, and wonderful!

All I have to say is delicious! We tried so many other caterers and hands down Corey is the best in town! The stuffed mushrooms and bacon wrapped scallops were to die for. I was worried the chicken would be dry on a buffet, but it was perfectly cooked. Everything was delicious and I received so many compliments on the food. The staff was very professional and attentive throughout the entire night.

Corey was amazing throughout the whole process, from our initial conversation about what we wanted to the very end when we finialized meals and head counts. She was very accommodating, reasonable with requests, flexible with a deposit timeline and final payment timeline (groom and I ran into some money issues and Corey was understanding of that), and overall wanted to make us happy. Her food was delicious!!! Everyone raved about it. Her menu is diverse which was important to me because we had many dietary restrictions. And we got to keep all of the leftovers! Please choose Corey for your wedding food. You won’t be disappointed!

Corey was absolutely phenomenal throughout the process. Corey was excellent in hearing our likes and dislikes and was very helpful in helping us to create a menu that would satisfy all of our guests. We scheduled a tasting with Corey and it was amazing! We knew that her wide variety of options and delicious recipes would be perfect for our big day. We got so many compliments from our guests about the food at the cocktail hour and reception. I also loved that fact that I spoke with Corey directly every step of the way!

Corey is fantastic!! She was a pleasure to work with and she is a true food genius! Our guests could not stop raving about her amazing food, saying it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. As soon as our ceremony was over, we were greeted by one of her staff members carrying a personal tray with two of each of her fabulous hor d’oeuvres so that we would not have to miss out while we were off taking family photos. She was accommodating and very sweet. She was a joy to work with and she helped make our special day absolutely perfect!

We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding weekend so fantastic! The food for all three events was amazing - all of our guests were complimenting how delicious everything was! We are so happy we found you! It was an absolute pleasure working with you!

“The customer service from day one was top-notch! Corey was so accommodating, friendly, professional, and easy to work with! Communication was clear and timely and maintained throughout our entire planning process. We feel like Corey just “got” us and our vision and she and her team executed it perfectly. I’ve told all of our friends and family (and anyone else who will listen) how fantastic she is!”
— Brittany Fandrey 09/06/15
Corey was really amazing. Her food was so delicious, the presentation was amazing, and the service was perfect. She cut our cake free of charge and brought napkins and forks as well so we didn’t have to do that! She was definitely the most reasonably priced and the food was awesome!! We made a special request for chicken marsala that she didn’t have on her menu and she knocked it out of the park. She’s open to anything, friendly, and timely. She also packed us to-go boxes so my husband and I could eat more after the wedding! Communication was really easy! Hire her for your wedding!

We were married on Saturday, June 18th, 2016 in Black Mountain, North Carolina, and Catering By Corey provided our wedding food. It was divine! She created two passed hors-d’oeuvres, plus a light snack buffet for the cocktail hour. For dinner, we had a buffet with three options - roasted pork, trout, or marinated grilled tofu - and delicious sides. Corey is a joy to work with - she’s creative, flexible, and an incredible chef. Also, her staff members were fantastic. We couldn’t be happier with Catering By Corey. Since our wedding, I’ve overheard my Mom telling her friends about it, and she always says, “The food was phenomenal!” We are grateful to Corey and her team. Thank you.

I can’t even begin to express how much I loved working with Corey and her crew! They were just so amazing! From the first meeting with Corey I was in love. Her style of cooking was exactly what we were looking for and her price was on point! She was able to help us customize our menu to our tastes and even helped us out when our budget didn’t quite match our taste buds. Her food is to die for (I cleaned my plate at my reception - unheard of!). All my guests have been raving about how much they loved the food. She was SO easy to communicate with and so eager to help! On numerous occasions she offered help, even outside the realm of food. And sh packs up a box of food and leaves it for you for after the wedding celebration so you can eat! She was so sweet and I will sing her praises to anyone who asks! I would use her again in a heart beat! And who knows, one day I might need a baby shower catered :) Thank you Corey, for making our day extra special!!

“We used Catering by Corey for our wedding and could not have been more pleased. Corey was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was more than willing to create a menu that met our needs and worked with our budget. She met with us several times throughout the process and always answered email questions quickly. She was more than happy to help out in any way she could. And of course, the food was AMAZING. Hands down, it was the best food out of all the caterers we tried for our wedding. All of our guests loved it as well. I would definitely recommend Catering by Corey to anyone and everyone!”

I wanted to send you a note and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing job you did for our party. It was so perfect. The food was incredible, the staff was very efficient and very nice. You were so organized. I truly cannot say enough good things about it. I appreciate it more than I can ever say and I will be sure to contact you if I ever need the services of a caterer in the future. I had several positive comments about everything, especially the food. Our brunch food was amazing too.
— Mrs. Lin Winstead 07/25/2015
Corey did my Sunday brunch wedding this month and it was absolutely PERFECT! From the beginning, she was enthusiastic about the event, responsive to emails, and helpful in customizing the menu to fit the venue. We heard nothing but compliments about her chicken & waffles, watermelon salad, shrimp & grits and biscuits!!

If you need a caterer — you don’t need to look any further. Corey is a dream to work with you, and I guarantee you’ll be happy.

On our drive back we couldn’t stop reliving our wedding day! One of our favorite parts was sitting at the dinner table with our family, and passing around your delicious food! We both just stopped and took it all in. It was everything that we hoped for! Your food was delicious. Many of our guests came up to us to tell us how much they enjoyed their meal!
— Jenni and Jordan Chandler 05/2015

Corey is so lovely to work with and she makes such good food. Even the picky eaters at my wedding loved the meal. Corey is willing to work with your budget to create a wonderful meal that isn’t your typical catered food.
— Kristen G
Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. It could not have been more perfect. Everyone raved about the food. It was wonderful! You are a very talented lady. We appreciate all of the extra touches you added to your wedding. Thank again!
— Kristin Farmer and Adam Aycock
Our weekend was a success and you were a great support in providing wonderful food that everyone thoroughly enjoyed. We heard lots of raves and absolutely no negative reviews.

I wanted to personally let you know what a delight it was to work with you. Your ongoing professionalism and assistance was a huge support and made the task of arranging food for over 200 attendees a much simpler task than I had imagined it would be. I never doubted the quality of your food or worried whether or not you would show up on time - and that proved to be true with timely delivery of all sandwiches that were clearly marked as to special dietary needs. And I really appreciate your creativity in being able to accommodate that one last “special request” hours before delivery!
— Lisa McAlpine
Corey catered our daughter’s wedding. She did an outstanding job! The food was delicious, and her presentation, beautiful. Corey was very professional and accommodating. She works very well under pressure and takes great pride in her creations. Her food was an overwhelming success, as we received many compliments. Corey played a huge part in keeping my stress level at a minimum and I would highly recommend “Catering by Corey” for your next event !!

We felt the whole event was very successful, and you were a delight to work with. The food fit the occasion, and I particularly liked those meatballs. I am just happy sweet cousin Elrica had a wonderful time, and that her son, David, was so happy with all the delicious food. You only get this chance once, and it was perfect! - 100th Birthday Party
