We have added this page as a result of numerous requests by our viewers. It is very easy to find a caterer, just look in the phone book. Every deli, pizza place and supermarket thinks that by supplying food off premises they automatically qualify as caterers. Delivered or picked-up food is not catered food. There are many factors to be considered. Size of group, occasion, tastes of group, where food will be served, is service needed, ease of consuming food - will there be tables, a bar area, will other things be going on at the same time. This requires experienced professionals. Watch this page and feel free to contribute your ideas and suggestions.

Cooking On The River
Piermont, New York, (845) 365-0042
Cooking on the River prepares home-cooked meals in advance for busy families and singles. They are delicious, affordable, flexible and conveniently frozen and re-heated. Cooking on the River specializes in daily fare and small parties. Award-winning Chef Phyllis Segura is professionally trained in Europe and the United States. She also watched her Grandmother very carefully. She has cooked for people in all walks of life, including Artists, Actors, Storytellers, Film Critics, Homemakers, Musicians, Princes and Princesses, Business Administrators, Gourmands and other Chefs. Here is a quote from mary B., one of her clients: "She's come to our home quite a few times over the past years to make meals for my husband and me. They're wonderful and she clearly loves the whole thing: shopping for exactly what she thinks works best, making all of the sauces and accompaniments from scratch, responding to the nuances of our requirements and tastes, coming up with completely delicious food. I often tell her, after giving her broad guidelines, to do whatever she wants and that works very well. She has many more options in her head from the range of her past work and experience than I can summon up from my life in the kitchen or in area restaurants. It's a pleasure to have her in our life. I think anyone who gets in touch with her via your website will not be disappointed."
