Your generosity and belief in the Society’s mission furthers SFBGS’s ability to celebrate the bond between people and plants, while instilling a deeper understanding of the necessity to conserve our wonderful natural resources.

“Veronica, my friends and I really had a great weekend. And we all enjoyed your wonderful cooking - so healthy and tasty. I will certainly pass your name along to those who may be looking for a personal chef in the Napa area. If we rent another villa, I will certainly look you up. Good luck with your business and enjoy the summer. Sincerely, K. B.”

 

S. L.– Santa Rosa, CA

“Two words: Absolutely delicious! He loved it, I loved it and we can’t wait until the next time. He mentioned he’d like to try some good recipes. If you come across something that looks easy – maybe for a chicken entrée or we like salmon – he’d really like that. I’m going to look at buying him some cookbooks but he thought your cooking was marvelous! And delicious salad and killer brownies. I can’t tell you how happy we were. The only bad part about the night was the Warriors lost to Dallas. We were bummed! Thanks again and take care”

 

M. L. –Phoenix, AZ

“EVERYTHING WAS FABULOUS!! I am so sorry I missed you. I heard from the gals that you were lovely. We were thrilled with all of the meals and especially the sauces for the meats (YUMMY!!). It was our best year yet in the meals department. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We passed on your menu and contact info to the owners (who I guess you spoke to) as they asked how everything went. I hope you get some more business from them out of it! Best wishes to you in your career. From our experience, you have a bright future as a chef!! If ever, I can be a reference, don’t hesitate to contact me. We will not be on the west coast for our weekend next year but if we head back to the Napa area the following year, we’ll definitely give you a call. Take care and thanks again, M. L.”

I'd really appreciate it. We will definitely use you next year so mark your calendar for the first weekend in Nov. Have a great day!!” - L. and B.W

 

C. S.– Sebastopol, CA

“Veronica - Thanks again for all your hard work and awesome food!!! You guys did such a great job and it was a true pleasure to spend time with you. We look forward to our working with you again. Thanks – C.S”

 

Letter from C.S.: “…..I have had the pleasure of working with Veronica…..We had a great experience working with [her]…….. Not only is she really easy to work with, but her food is fantastic!......We wanted her to do a holiday event for us but she was out of town at the time of our party otherwise we would have hired her again. The event we had Veronica cater was a smallish (20 heads) 50th B-day party for my husband up at Sea Ranch. Because it was a smallish event I was concerned about the vibe introduced by the cater and staff - both Veronica and her assistance were so friendly, cooperative, helpful and unobtrusive. They were a great addition/compliment to our party. They arrived with plenty of time to prepare everything and were so great about cleaning up as they went along. The kitchen never looked overrun or out of control - actually, quite the opposite. The food was amazing …….We were so impressed that each person's filet was done to perfection as requested upon their being seated. We did not have any kids in our group - but I have no doubt that kid food would not be a problem for Veronica and Co. We had a really great experience and are looking forward to using Veronica's services in the future. As noted, she was extremely professional and easy to work with - I changed my mind about a couple things along the way (including my head count) and it was no problem at all. I highly recommend Veronica and I hope you are as happy with her services as we were. Good luck with your event - Regards – C.S.”
