“Catering takes many forms; it all depends on what the customer is looking for. Many caterers have a specialty, a niche they fill. In Missy Will’s case, it’s all about the balance between food and wine.” – Connie Adams, Editor

Seattle Wine Society AlmaTerra and Smasne Event
“I thought you were very professional in the manner that you approached the event. Very thoughtful of the wines and the pairings. Your presentation and service you and your staff provided were first class. It was a pleasure to have you cater the Seattle Wine Society AlmaTerra and Smasne Event. We look forward to future events with you.”
Microsoft Corporate Team Building Event
“The event was really great – and thank you for making a success of our team building exercise. I overheard people say it was a lot of fun. Talk to you soon and thanks again.”
WSU Alumni Catering Event
“Thank you so much for the fabulous food and the wonderful staff you provided for our event on Friday night. We had a ton of great comments – it was perfect!”
Corinthian College Corporate Team Building Event
“I want to thank you and your staff for making our event so spectacular. Everything was incredibly perfect from the wines to the food to the atmosphere. There are not many times I trust a vendor to just take the ball and run with it. But, you did, and I am most grateful. You had to really convince me on the seating arrangement, and you were right on target with what you said. Missy, you and your staff are one of a kind. I wish you much continued success on your events.”
“You have touched my ‘inner compass’… I am still ‘digesting’ my wonderful evening in ‘your kitchen’…and read a line in my new Julia Child’s book…MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING…page xxiv… ‘Cooking is an art. It requires practice and experience. The most important ingredient you can bring to it is the love of cooking for its own sake.’ Missy, YOU could have said it!”
Wine Wednesdays for Women
“Enjoyed the first Wine Wednesdays for Women. We ‘toured’ Spain last night in Missy’s lovely, cozy kitchen. Lots of learning, great wines, delicious food and excellent conversation. Thank you Missy!”
