Just incredible

Wendy, Bill and their whole team are incredible. They handled all our catering for a 3-day wedding weekend and Wendy was our Day-of Coordinator as well. I am a pretty organized person and still, there were a million things I didn't know to think about that Wendy completely handled so I could just be there and enjoy. Everything she touched was made perfect. On top of her expertise and graciousness in pulling off the event, I felt like she was really there to celebrate us, too. My mom said it too: this is what it looks like when someone truly loves what they do and are exceptionally good at it. The rest of their team was just as caring and considerate as Wendy and Bill -- we felt totally taken care of by them. And people are still talking about the goodbye brunch. THANK YOU Wendy and Bill!

Bill and Wendy are FAB!

I cannot begin to express how great Wendy and Bill were to work with. My fiance and I were originally going to get married in June of 2020. We hired an event coordinator to help us facilitate planning, vendors etc. etc. We picked Ocean Gateway as our venue which is a blank slate. Our event coordinator was pushing another caterer that she worked with often onto us. After rescheduling our call multiple times, being late for said call, talking over us the whole time, and then delivering a proposal that didn't match anything we asked for, I started doing my own research. I came across For the Love of Food and reached out. Wendy responded right away and set up a call with my Fiance and I. We explained that we were looking for food and bar services for about 185 guests, and wanted to have food stations that allowed people to eat whenever they wanted. Wendy worked with us to create a full menu that included an array of passed apps, and food stations that included a taco, sushi, lobster roll, and dessert stations just to name a few. She put together a full bar package and made suggestions on fun signature drinks. We even went up to meet with her and Bill at their cafe prior to the 2020 wedding date. We ended up moving our wedding 4 times due to covid, and Bill and Wendy stayed with us the whole time (2+ years). Wendy checked in over the years, and in the weeks leading up to the wedding, went back over everything with us and made sure we had it all covered. The day of the wedding, she came up to us and said she had put a plate of food down for us, and honestly thank goodness for that because it was the only food I ate during the wedding. All of our guests said the food was wonderful, and definitely had plenty to drink. We also got a lot of comments from guests on how wonderful the catering staff was from food service to bartenders. Also, the pricing was reasonable and clearly communicated to us from the beginning. They did not come back and change things on us (we had this experience with another vendor) as we went. Overall they were amazing to work with and I cannot say enough good things about them!!!

Absolute Best!

Wendy and her team truly went above and beyond on our wedding day! Wendy has impeccable attention to detail, and made sure everything from my rehearsal to my signature drinks were perfect. I also love that they use local, seasonal ingredients in all their dishes, and they are familiar with a lot of other Maine vendors and venues. My guests were happy too! I truly could not have hired a better team, and this vendor is part of the reason I was able to relax and truly enjoy my wedding day :)

Great experience!!

For The Love of Food & Drink did a fantastic job catering our wedding! We found them when researching caterers for a vegetarian/vegan wedding. We reached out, and they invited us to their restaurant to sample some of their dishes. The food was fantastic! We can't wait to go back to their restaurant. Wendy and the team did a great job at accommodating any requests we had. They were easy to work with, and they were able to help make recommendations in regards to all things food and beverage related. The team was very professional and everything went off without a hitch.
The food at our wedding was excellent; it all tasted homemade and fresh. There was a wonderful selection to choose from for the cocktail hour and the dinner was great as well. They also helped us out by coordinating with our dessert vendor so that we didn't have to do any extra driving on our end. We would highly recommend For The Love of Food & Drink!!

Dear Wendy & Bill,

Thank you for the outstanding service you provided my family in celebration of our Mom's 90th birthday. Everyone had a wonderful time and have been buzzing about it since the party. Your assistance with food planning, preparation and presentation was unsurpassed.

"We LOVED working with Bill and Wendy for our October barn wedding that was attended by 135 family members and friends! Bill is an incredible chef and is so inventive and really knows how to include a variety of flavors in a meal. He made seventeen (yes, seventeen!) tapas for our wedding dinner from various regions around the world. Our guests gave us the most rave reviews about the food and people were really pleased with trying new things they would likely have never tried otherwise. Wendy is an absolute joy to work with. She is very knowledge and thinks of all the little things. Her energy and bright smile are contagious. She also has an amazing expertise in pairing wine and beer with the incredible dishes that come out of Bill’s kitchen. In addition to our wedding, we have been lucky enough to have attended various farm to table events catered by Bill and Wendy and some of their cooking classes. We always have a blast and you can really feel the love they have for food and for the people they are working with. We consider them not only top-notch professionals but also friends. We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for any type of event to be catered."

"Wendy and Bill are incredible. We had an intimate wedding with a handful of family members who were vegan, and not only was Bill easily able to accommodate us, they also provided an insanely delicious variety of dishes! Both the dairy and plant-based versions of Mac and Cheese were a huge hit, and we have leftovers to last us for days! On top of everything else, they are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet. It really is a family affair with them, and you feel and taste the love in their food. I only wish I had more events for them to cater! I would highly recommend them to anyone!"

Bill and Wendy helped bring our vision to life!

For the Love of Food and Drink did the catering and bartending for our family style wedding on 10/23 in Fryeburg, ME. They far exceeded any expectations I had. We knew leading up to the event that they were great - Wendy is a top-notch communicator and had set time aside to have calls with us going through each detail of the day. They executed it all beautifully!
They started the day with warm apple cider & bourbon as guests were entering the ceremony, then moved on to cocktail hour with passed apps, and finally the family style meal. They helped pick a seasonally appropriate, delicious menu that guests were raving about. They also staffed our bars with a great bartending crew that added to the event.
Bill and Wendy have a great business, great staff, and great food that we would recommend for any event!

Absolutely the Best Brunch in York County!
On my first visit I originally did a pick-up order but upon arrival realized they had Live Music during Sunday Brunch! All of the artists I’ve heard there have been Spectacular might I add. I’m almost reluctant to tell people because I don’t want my “Sunday Spot” becoming overcrowded come tourist season but this place is just too amazing to keep to myself and the gracious owners deserve recognition. All of their Delicious menu items can be prepared with Gluten Free which is crucial for my husband who has Celiac as many places that claim to have a “Gluten Free Menu” can not actually accommodate Celiac due to potential cross-contamination but this place has its own Gluten Free prep station and Grill. When it comes to the food, I can’t speak highly enough about their Fresh ingredients. The Veggie Omelet is Loaded with farm-fresh veggies and the eggs are wonderfully fluffy. The French Toast is prepared with my Favorite bread that they actually sell in loaves; the Cinnamon Swirl Bread. I’ve been going in to purchase this bread alone for almost a year now as I Love the crunchy sweet crystals that form on the bottom and edges after being toasted.

Bill created the "healthy" apps for our Open House using local ingredients. We gave him full creative rein and he nailed it! Our guests loved having the Chef on site to ask questions. Wendy paired wine with the apps and did a tasting. What a great combo! This combo works together to create an event that people will remember, they ate well, tasted well, and learned something! It does not get better than that.
