Love emanates from Lindsey's food and it’s exactly what you would want at any event that you host. Especially a wedding, when you are serving your dearest family and friends your first meal as husband and wife. Lindsey is the cornerstone needed to help you celebrate in style and set the stage for a wholesome, nourishing relationship with your new partner. Everything was absolutely perfect from the experience of preparing the meal to the divine presentation and the outrageously incredible flavors! She makes everything from scratch and that makes the flavors more delicious than any other caterer would do. We needed pickled onions, so a week before she made them!
We are so glad that we flew Lindsey to Hawai’i to cater our wedding!!! People are still raving about how delicious and over-the-top everything was! To top it off, it was all cooked in an underground traditional Hawaiian imu and an outdoor kitchen we built for the wedding. Only Lindsey Byers could seamlessly cater a high-class dining experience using almost 100% local ingredients out of a make-shift kitchen and a hole in the ground… and have a beaming smile the entire time! LIndsey’s laughter echoed from the kitchen and made this huge catering job delightful for the staff we hired for her, of the guests and most of all, the bride and groom!
Months before the wedding Lindsey worked with me to create a mouth-watering menu to feature all of the foods in season in Hawai’I and reflect Eric and my favorite foods. She is an top-of-the-line chef that magically turns any seasonal ingredient into a scrumptious feast! Most catering companies cannot use local foods because they simply don’t have the skills or imagination to work with local ingredients. Lindsey is extremely talented in this arena and can easily change main ingredients to be even more delicious if the farmers don’t have them… or if the bride messes up the meat! I accidentally put some of the venision she was saving into the underground cooking imu… instead of freaking out that I changed her whole menu, she totally saved the day and made the meal even more incredible originally planned! Lindsey not only meets but exceeds expectations!
So what did we serve? Pupu’s (appetizers) were passed Kaua’I shrimp on guacamole wonton cups and stunning rainbow spring rolls. Two long wood tables overflowing with fresh cut veggies and fruits, an incredible selection of meats and cheeses, fresh made ahi poke and ahi sashimi in cabbage cups, spanakopita and more. A beautifully plated salad with roasted beets, macadamia nuts, local goat cheese, ferns and an incredible passion fruit vinaigrette. Marinated grilled mahi mahi over thai basil pesto and topped with a local mango-ginger gastrique. Coffee and kiawe rubbed imu turkey topped with an avocado herb sauce. Purple and orange sweet potato coconut lemongrass lau lau (individually wrapped in ti-leaf packets. Roasted local vegetbales cooked to perfection. Mashed breadfruit with roasted garlic. And last but not least, the most delicious imu cooked venison sliders with pineapple-passion fruit BBQ sauce on a taro roll and of course… smores!
Our wedding was so perfect because Lindsey brought our dreams to life and made them even better than imaginable! Hire her, fly her to wherever you are and make the best decision of your entire wedding!
