Some Accolades for Margot’s Catering Services


From Prue Hemmings, NexStage Theatre for Awards Event on 2/24/13 via email:

Dear Margot:

The party was a smashing success and your contribution was greatly appreciated.

You kept your sense of humor throughout, despite all our stressing and changes.

I will definitely write a letter of recommendation from nexStage the moment I can catch my breath. 

Many thanks,

Prue H

“Everything was just wonderful.  There wasn’t one thing we didn’t love. Our son in law said I would like to cook with her because she used ingredients that are different.  I can’t wait to do it again next year.  I love some of those dips for the shrimp.  I could eat the orange marmalade one with a spoon.”
