I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation. For the past ten years you have been our caterer of choice for the Fontaine Society Annual Dinner. As you know, the event is hosted by the Provost, the chief academic officer of the University of Pennsylvania. The audience includes about fifty graduate students in a prestigious honor society. The dinner is also the highlight of a recruitment weekend for prospective students we hope to attract to the University. We pay their way here, host them for the weekend, and put on the best program we can to convince them to choose Penn. Sadie’s Country and Gourmet is part of the “show”. You always manage to come up with delicious and varied menus with lots of choices and wonderful taste combinations. You must promise, however, never to take the sweet potato crunch off the menu. You have earned our loyalty not only on the account of the delicious food. The presentation is always elegant and classic. I am delighted to leave the selection of linen colors, flowers and layout presentation entirely in your capable hands. Your staff is pleasant and responsible. They do a terrific job. Furthermore, I am confident in your work and very satisfied; I have no interest in giving our business to anyone else. Thank you for the care you always take to make sure the event reflects well on all of us.”

“Words can not describe how much we appreciate the fabulous job you and your staff did for my daughters wedding. The menu was simply mouth watering. The entree  was presented upon the most beautiful lavender and white linens amidst a matching array of fresh flowers and candle centerpieces (all your suggestions). It was breathtaking and elegant as all the guests entered the hall. The Top Sirloin of Beef Au Jus carving station was a real taste winner, presented with roasted red potatoes and carrots. Everyone loved the Chicken Marsala in Cream Sauce, Herb Rice and Fresh Green Beans. However, they are still talking about the Crab Superb on a Homemade Biscuit Split and the Sadie’s Sweet Potato Crunch- scrumptiously delicious!!! All the guests told us that this was the best food that they had ever eaten at a wedding or anywhere. This speaks volumes about your experience, capability and impeccable taste. I will certainly recommend you to all my friends, family and customers.”
