"I just wanted to touch base to thank you again for all of your help and for the wonderful food! Not only did you make it such an easy process, during such a difficult time for my family....everything was so delicious. You had great suggestions that worked with our budget and we had everything we wanted... and more!!
Your server (Mom and Daughter) team we're the dream team in our book. For once, my family didn't have to lift a finger, which gave us the time we needed as a family to spend with friends and relatives. They were so friendly, always a step ahead and had everything covered. We can't thank them enough for all of their hard work and attention to detail...no matter how big or small.
Please feel free to post this on your website, if you'd like and I can't wait to have you back for my daughter's First Communion in May. I'll talk to you in the upcoming weeks about the plans for that.
Thank you again Dottie...for everything."

"Hi, Dotti ~

Where do I start?  Our Thanksgiving feast was "over the top"!!!

Thanks to you, we had the best Thanksgiving imaginable...easing the absence of my mother.

Each component of the meal was a delight, and we enjoyed it even more knowing the hands that prepared it.  

Enjoy the pictures of your beautiful and delicious creations.  We look forward to digging into them a few more times over the weekend due to the generous portions!

Thank you again for your tireless efforts to deliver such excellent food.  It is greatly appreciated."

"For the second year in a row you hit another home run with your magnificent BBQ buffet-style dinner for our group at the Baymont on June 5.   

The feedback I received from those in attendance were all very positive.  Your food was excellent and your service outstanding!  These comments truly speak volumes about you and your business -- Brown Sugar Catering.   

On a personal note, Dotti, you are such a terrific person that goes above and beyond to make each of your catered affairs perfect in every way.  I can't thank you enough for going out to the Baymont, prior to my event, to ensure that the room and setup would adequately accommodate my event (and group of 125). I truly appreciate your knowledge and expertise and I look forward having you cater next year's event. Next year, I plan to attend the event so that I can meet you in person.  I am already looking forward to it.

Thank you for sending me a copy of your newsletter.  I enjoyed reading it and hope that you add me to your mailing list to receive future newsletters.    Your website is setup very nice too.  I would like to be one of the many clients and friends to express my sincerest "Congratulations"  to you on your recent 10 year Anniversary  celebration of Brown Sugar Catering.  May you have many, many, more anniversary celebrations. "

“Well, summer is over!  I have to say the highlight of ours was our party on August 23rd.  And a large reason for the success of our party was your delicious creations.  Everything was so tasty, and people raved about your food for weeks after the party.  Thank you so much for your hard work.”  (Kathleen Nevins)


“Steve and I wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful food you provided for our July 12th wedding.  Our guests raved about all the tasty appetizers & wonderful entrees (& of course, the cake!!).  We also wanted to thank you for organizing so much that went into our day.  It truly was the happiest day of our lives, and we couldn’t have done it without you.”  (Beth and Steve Deyo)


“I wanted to take a minute and THANK YOU for the phenomenal catering job at my home for our holiday party.  The food and presentation was beyond my expectations.  The brie and the eggnog cheesecake were among everyone’s favorites.  This is the first time I have had an event catered at my house.  My wife was the most relaxed I have ever seen her before receiving 40 guests in our home. We will be sure to call you before our next event.”  (Ray Irvin, Clarke-Irvin Insurance Agency, Manchester, CT)


“Thank you so much for the beautiful Bridal Tea.  We are still talking about the food, tea, and great time they had.  This would have been impossible it if weren’t for you.  The presentation with the china and linens set the tone for a very classy and elegant affair.  I was able to sit down and enjoy myself like a guest.  I appreciate all your hard work and professionalism.”  (Renee Harris, Windsor, CT)

“I recently hosted a woman’s networking social here at the bank and asked Brown Sugar Catering to cater the affair.  Chef Dotti was wonderful in taking care of all the details and gave me peace of mind, knowing I was in such good hands.  The food was phenomenal!  As for Chef Dotti’s desserts, I never had cheesecake like this before!  It was like velvet cream melting in my mouth.  Without a doubt, I would use Brown Sugar Catering, LLC for my next affair.”  (Linda Gary, Manchester, CT)

“Just a short note to let you know what a beautiful and wonderful job you did in catering my daughter’s bridal shower.  I was a nervous wreck about the food.  This was the first time in 30 years I’ve given a party and had someone else do the cooking.  I have to tell you that you did a fabulous job.  The food was out of this world!  Thank you again for letting me enjoy the day with my daughter instead of being in the kitchen for hours on end.”  (Sue Kelleher, Columbia, CT)
