What people are saying

Carse Family

Jess has catered multiple family gatherings and parties for us, and each has been exceptional.  This summer alone, she catered our son's wedding rehearsal dinner on a beach, in the dark, far from here + my big birthday sit-down dinner There is so much more -  She has cooked and delivered to us, cooked at our house and even in a park - fish, chicken, steak, everything gluten-free, vegetarian, main courses and side dishes, desserts and honestly, we don't have a favorite (well...the steak is pretty special) because they all were delicious.  Did I mention she made donut ice cream sandwiches? We have had anywhere from 10-60 people! She does it all and leaves everything spotless when she is gone. Jess won't present anything that isn't gorgeous either. We are so lucky to have found Jess. She is kind, talented, professional, and a delight to be around. Thank you, Jess!  Love,  The Entire Carse family.  Ps- Did I mention she made our Thanksgiving pies too!

    “What a treat it was to have Jess cook for our dinner party. Her food was delicious and beautifully displayed and she added a fun warmth and funky dimension to our event. Jess was a pleasure to work with and amenable to our suggested menu tweaks. She was also willing to go the extra mile to make the evening homespun and tailored just to our liking. We can’t wait to have her back!”

    Jess made us the most beautiful and delicious cake for our intimate wedding ceremony! This was our 4th time trying to plan an event due to covid cancellations and so by this time, I wanted to nothing to do with the planning. Jess made it so easy for us, we did not have to worry about a thing. We ordered the honey & rose apple flavor which she recommended and it was absolutely amazing. The frosting was my favorite part. From taste, to presentation, to delivery, everything was perfect. Would highly recommend!

    I received Jess's personal chef services from my children after I had shoulder surgery and couldn't cook for myself. What a great gift!

    Each week, Jess would send me her menus and I would pick what my husband and I wanted. we set a delivery time for the food to be delivered. It was so great having Jess arrive on time with hot meals!

    Jess's food is delicious and hearty. Her plates are unique and excellent. We loved the many ways she prepared different steaks for us. The portions were large and we usually had generous left overs.

    Jess is friendly and easy to work with. Don't hesitate to hire Rustic Roots!!
