"Thank you very much! The party was a huge success. . .everyone raved about the food! The pulled pork was phenomenal. . .the ziti was sooo creamy and soooo yummy, and unfortunately we don't have much of that left to have as leftovers!

Thank you so much for doing this!"---Kathleen Brady, Cape Coral, Florida

"The jambalaya was amazing!"---Christina LoSauro, Cape Coral, Florida

"Just wanted to let you know how amazed we were by your Cajun and Creole fare. It was by far the best food we've had in Florida. as a Louisiana gal and an LSU grad, I am notoriously picky. Your gumbo was incredible, chock full of seafood and a smoky and spicy roux. Tim is still talking about it. He says it is 'killer!' We also loved the Shrimp Creole, with huge shrimp and a wonderful sauce. The Crawfish Etouffee ws perfect. All your food was excellent and reasonably priced, especially for the top notch ingredients. You are truly a talented chef. Thank you for a taste of home."---Linda Wallace, Fort Myers, Florida (formerly of Lafayette, Louisiana)

"Bob, you make a roux exact!"---Miss Dolly Dimitry, Metairie, Louisiana
