What some of our clients are saying:

“My husband and I were recently married on the beach in Oceanside, CA. Prior to our wedding day, we had vacationed in the Carlsbad area and became quick regulars to Annel and Drew’s Kitchen stand at the local farmers markets. Their food was exceptional, fresh, local and their personalities made a huge impression. Our wedding, which had been planned for Maui, was swapped for the San Diego area based on Annel and Drew’s Kitchen. Food can make or break an event. It is apparent quickly after meeting both Annel and Drew, they love what they do and their passion is evident in their product.

Our guests have repeatedly told us they had never been to an event with “such good food!” During the evening, I was unaware of their packing up and cleaning. Annel and Drew’s staff left our location cleaner than it had been prior to their arrival. The extra food was neatly wrapped up and left in our refrigerator which we enjoyed later in the evening. Our interactions with Annel and Drew left a huge impression on my husband and I. Their talent and zest for life is contagious. We lucked out by having them as a part of our wedding day.”
-Katie & Bo, Sonoma CA

“My 5 year old daughter and I are addicted to Annel and Drew’s grilled artichokes at the Sunday market, so naturally they have become my go-to for healthy, delicious, and creative catering for the non-profit I work with.  It is not easy to find nutritious, health promoting catering and their food not only tastes incredible, but represents the ethos and values of our organization.  My colleagues and guests have been thrilled with everything from the farm fresh salads, to the savory wraps and sliders and my personal favorite, the quinoa (and they ALWAYS want to know how to get in touch with the caterer!)

They are incredibly accommodating to dietary needs and their vegan and gluten free modifications are just as delicious!   On top of all that, they are great people and a pleasure to work with!”
-Naomi, Encinitas CA

“I had Annel and Drew cater my husband’s 40th birthday party at our home, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with their service. The food was incredible as usual and they really worked with me to develop a specialized menu to suit our guests. Everyone was raving about the dinner! Annel and Drew were flexible, reliable, and a pleasure to work with, and we will definitely have them cater again.”
-Hallie, Encinitas CA

“I have enjoyed catering from Annel  & Drew many times.  I know I can count on their professionalism and of course their amazing food.  I love to use their kitchen because their menu is so unusual. They have a unique style of merging the flavors of New American cuisine with the freshest of local ingredients. You will never be disappointed in choosing them for your next event.”
-Lorri, Leucadia CA.

“From the very first time we tasted Annel & Drew’s Balsamic Marinated grilled artichokes along with a chicken skewer we were hooked.  We make sure to stop by our Leucadia Farmers Market most Sunday’s specifically to eat from their booth.  We’ve also used them multiple times for catering our parties.  Every single time, our guests have asked, “where is this from, I’ve never tasted anything like it”.  Their food is creative, fresh, local and mostly organic and everything we have tried we have loved! If you want something new and unique that your guests will love, Annel & Drew’s is your best bet!”
-Ted & Deanna DeFrank, Leucadia CA
