“Over the past 11 years, we’ve considered Chef Kern’s a significant asset in our customer entertainment programs. When we asked you to handle the catering for our Masters program, we upgraded our entire program! Even today when our customers reference their trip to Augusta they always rave about Chef Kern, his coconut shrimp, great soups and of course the bread pudding & pralines. On behalf of everyone at BP, thank you for making our events a great success”.
“Our organization has the pleasure of working with Chef Kern’s for our high end client events. In each and every case, the dinner planned and prepared by Chef Kern was of the highest quality, the service and attention to detail was impeccable and the food was the best we’d encountered from a caterer, receiving rave reviews from the welltraveled guest at the event.”
“Chef Kern’s, has at every juncture, gone beyond what was necessary and surpassed what expected. His problem solving, accommodating, and more specifically “can do” attitude has been a fixture during the course of our business relationship.”

“We used Chef Kern's for our Band Banquet at North Forsyth High School. The food was delicious, served fresh with a great variety of dishes, plenty of food for everyone and a reasonable price. We will use them for our upcoming meals. Thank you Chef Kerns, for making our banquet meal a great success!”
“We are crazy about Kern and Denise! Chef Kern is an energetic and remarkably creative chef who is always in tune with what's trending in the food industry and his clients' needs. Our many experiences with Chef Kern and Denise include fresh dinner pickups at the storefront, hosting small dinner parties at our home, and planning a catered event for 300! Every time we are incredibly satisfied with the food quality, presentation, friendly staff, and overall experience. We look forward to sharing many more occasions with Chef Kern Fine Foods!"
“In 2007, Chef Kern catered a family wedding and we were so impressed with the variety of tasty food he served. From that point on Chef Kern has been taking care of our celebrations. I even called on Chef when our church hosted a conference in April for over 450 people. Chef and his staff produced a beautiful buffet that was prepared fresh on site. It was served piping hot and was absolutely delicious! Whether we have a small or large function, we can count on Chef Kern and his friendly, knowledgeable staff to provide and serve a fresh, quality product every time.”
Chef Kern catered our wedding reception on a houseboat. The coconut shrimp are to die for, the tenderloin you could cut with a butter knife, the service was amazing and everyone just raved about the food. It is always difficult to hire a caterer, especially for a unique venue like a boat with limited resources. They did their due diligence and you would have thought you were at a five star restaurant. Thanks for your professionalism and outstanding menu! I have referred them several times and have had nothing but thanks from friends for recommending them. I will always use them for my events in the future. PS - their store in Cumming is great too!
“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Chef Kern and his team over the past few years during the Masters. They prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the entire week onsite. The experience and professionalism they bring to the table makes the week stress free, enjoyable, and delicious. Many of our guests return each year and are all thrilled when they see Chef Kern’s mobile kitchen in the driveway. The menu they prepare for the week is unmatched and keeps guests excited for what’s to come. I highly recommend Chef Kern and his team for any event – large or small. Guest are guaranteed to be talking about the meal long after the event.”
“Chef Kern is easy to work with, helpful and accommodating, and his food is delicious. His all natural ingredients shine! His wife, Denise, made our consultation fun and really paid attention to the kind of food we wanted to present for our guests at our wedding. We're vegetarians, so we wanted a delicious, healthy, and special menu that would edify vegetarianism. Both Chef Kern and his wife worked with us to create a summer menu that stayed within our budget and reflected our love of good, healthy food. The presentation was gorgeous and we continually heard great feedback about our menu from our guests. Huge thank you to Chef Kern, Denise, and the whole Chef Kern team. We highly recommend their gourmet food - for weddings, events, or small dinner parties.”
"Thank you" seems inadequate to express our gratitude for all that you and your team did to help make our Grand Opening Preview and Signature Donor Dedication such a success! Of course, the food was phenomenal -- we continue to hear rave reviews about that. Your staff is so professional and each of them went above the call of duty to provide exceptional customer service that evening. It was an absolute breath of fresh air to see so many young people conduct themselves in such a respectful, hard-working and pleasant manner. Please convey to them our appreciation. Finally, the attention to detail that you both provided -- everything from helping us figure out the layout and flow of the evening, to checking the power outlets -- you helped us think of everything. Two of our organization's core values are "Deep Interdependence: I can't do my job without you" and "Passion for Excellence: I bring my best every day" were personified in you and your staff last Thursday night. We are so very grateful! We look forward to future opportunities to work with you.
