  • David is an attentive and knowledgeable caterer. We started talking to him during the Red period of Covid and continued to work with him through Purple and Worse than Purple (100% occupancy in ICUs). Throughout the process David was quick to respond to the changes and to be respectful of our needs while watching laws and government guidelines. With each change he gave us new ideas and new quotes that were within our budget but offered truly elegant food to our wedding guests at very reasonable prices. Although we never got to taste the food due to the complete shut down, we will certainly look to Affordable Affairs Gourmet Catering for our future needs. ~The Rogers, San Diego
