Just wanted to thank you for making our dinner party such a success! You took care of every detail – from bringing the china, silver,
glassware and flowers – to creating the most fabulous dinner – served by a wonderful staff! It could not have been more perfect! I look forward to planning another party with Crave Culinaire!”

“Not only is Brian’s lobster cappuccino the best thing I’ve ever eaten…it is such a small part of his many talents. I feel very blessed to know and work with the very caring and giving Brian Roland of Crave Culinaire.”

“Crave Culinaire did a fabulous job for an event we had aboard a yacht. The food was spectacular—delicious and creative! Crave Culinaire isn’t a “catering service”. Chef Brian is an expert in food and he brings his knowledge, versatility and personality to the table whenever and wherever we are fortunate enough to enjoy his creations. He’s simply THE BEST!!”

“The morning after the dinner Chef Brian and his staff prepared and presented in my home I received a text from one of my guests. He said I had set the bar and it was high!!! The evening was perfect from beginning to end. Every course exceeded the previous one which seemed impossible. Every sip of wine a delightful companion to the dish it accompanied. I could not have dreamed of an evening that could surpass the one Crave Culinaire prepared for myself and my guests.”
Jackie Ressa, Naples, FL
Dear Readers! First, let me say, Brian is not only darling to work with but his whole team is great! He is an amazing artist in style, presentation, but the quality of the food out does anyone here that is DOING FOOD!! Take it from me, I’m a total foodie and a good cook! LOL. No, really, I wouldn’t consider using anyone else if you want a sophisticated, gorgeous event with amazing talent and food! I’ve actually, not only have hired him for personal use, I’ve been on the other side as an invited guest to friends house too, where they had him. It’s a pleasure to work with Brian, let alone eatting his food, and most of all, you really can enjoy your own event whether it’s 2 or 202~ I’ve done both, and couldn’t be happier. Feel free to reach out to him and start to plan something wonderful, just make sure you plan early. I’ve had to change a few dates around, as he is the man of the hour! Please, now, when you just have friends over, can you call me? I’ll bring the wine!

“Crave Culinaire catered my father’s 90th Birthday party and my Parent’s 50th Anniversary. It was seamless and effortless on my part. Chef Brian took care of every aspect of the dinner. His personal attention to each course was exceptional. Our guests could not get over the delicious food and how every course was described by Chef Brian. My four year old daughter summed it up best “Chef Brian, you are the best cook!”. I look forward to having Crave Culinaire host my next event!”
Dr. Erin Taylor, Bonita Springs FL
“In March of 2013 we hosted a party at our home for 100 guests that was catered by Brian and his fantastic team at Crave Culinaire. Almost four months later we are still getting rave reviews about the deliciously unique food. Although the party doubled in size from our original projections, Brian and his team handled every detail flawlessly and helped make it an evening to remember! We have already committed to Brian for 2014 and look forward to many years to come! Gratzie!”
