It was such a lovely evening and could not have been more perfect; thank you. We have received the nicest notes from our friends and they thought it was pretty special!

You made it possible and easy to host this party. I hardly did a thing!

Your cards were picked up, so I’m hopeful my guests will contact you. I’d love to work with you again — it was such a treat having you in my cupboards, truly! You are so creative and engaging. The re-heats went perfectly, as did everything else.  Feel free to use me as a reference, should anyone ever ask.

Thank you for so comfortably making yourself at home in my home; for being so wonderfully prepared; and for giving my occasion that ‘joie de vivre’ or — is it in Italian, ‘buena forchetta?” — that only an artist can do! Gorgeous 🙂

grilled stone fruitWell my phone has not stopped…..what a night to remember. I am so grateful that for once I took several photos of the indescribable feast for the senses! Most of our friends are familiar with your productions and tasty fare….but last night was different. A. said she wished no one was around so she could have eaten all the lamb chops and E. said the filet with parmesan on toasts was amazing….everything was just superb and your staff gave super epic presentation and service. But Anne….YOU topped yourself …….

We went to bed and all he could say was…”what a great party and that girl is a genius and what are we going to do with all those balloons”…then he fell asleep!

The guests of honor were not used to this level of attention and indulgence lavished on them….but as long as we know Anne Apra….!!!

Thank you from me and my valentine for a night to remember,

Anne created amazing food, everything from shu mai to charcuterie,  that delighted the guests. The food was beautiful and delicious.  The service was fantastic; I never worried about a single detail, and everything went smoothly.  Afterwards, I was left with a clean kitchen, left overs carefully wrapped in the refrigerator, and many happy guests. – Robert G.

Just wanted to tell you again how fantastic you were yesterday.  The event went off without a hitch (other than bad LA traffic) and you made everything run so smoothly from the moment you walked into Rebecca’s apartment.  I wish you lived in San Francisco.   We were all very appreciative of everything that you did. – Susan M

We would like to tell the world how much we appreciated the dinner party you coordinated for us.  Your menu was exquisite and delicious.  You created a marvelous meal which our guests ogled over!  And the staffing you provided worked with the precision and beauty of a Swiss watch. All of this is amazing.  However, to have all of the above and your delightful, charming, and positive energy made the whole adventure a joy.  Thank you, thank you, thank you! – Dean & Frank

Anne Apra, the caterer from my wedding did a FANTASTIC job, and I would recommend her to anyone–her menu was good, her food was delicious (and hot, served on time), and she stuck to our budget.  She was also really good about managing all the different personalities in the pre-wedding process.  –  Betsy S.
