5 out of 5 stars Informative AND with quantity recipes!, February 24, 2003

  Reviewer: Kyle Waterman from Chigao, IL

Because of this uneasy economy I have started to do small catering events on the weekends for some extra income. I needed a "how to" book and looked at many until finally choosing this one. The selling point for me was the 50 easy to follow catering recipes inside!These kind of recipes are usually only found in reference style books that cost way too much. This useful book is clear,to the point, and the experienced Ms Vivaldo's writing style makes it a joy to read! The ultimate caterer's handbook!

5 out of 5 stars The Book That Is Our Business Bible, October 24, 2002

  Reviewer: Lisa A. Norman from Sarasota, FL United States

Denise Vivaldo's book was the first book I picked up when we decided to go into the catering business. It is with me every day and the best book I have found. I have read several and none compare. She has shared a wealth of knowledge and I rely on it every day to run our business. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in or having difficulty running a catering business. Thank you Denise!
