Diana catered a wonderful Engagement Party for us. The food was out of this world ( I'm still dreaming of the apricot tart) and she was a delight to work with. She is extremely organized, as is her staff, and helped with all aspects of the party from ordering a violinist to helping with all the centerpieces which we took from our garden. I can't wait to have another party with her!

We are a family of “foodies” and are very particular when it comes to food. We have an on staff executive chef  who has been with us for 17 years and we love him.  When we have a larger event or when our chef is not available Diana is our first call. We’ve tried a number of caterers and we love Diana! Diana can do everything from a large gathering to an intimate dinner to a delightful picnic. Diana has catered a number of wine events for us. Her staff is amazing. I’m used to rolling up my sleeves but never have to when Diana and her team is on site. Diana makes entertaining in your home or anywhere a breeze. Can’t recommend Dining with Di enough!

Dining with Di has catered many varied events for our school. Whether small, large, formal or informal, we have always been extremely pleased with the sumptuous, beautifully presented food which has fed our tummies as well as our hearts and souls.

When I think of memorable times in my life, so often those special moments are surrounded with a great meal, friends and celebrations. Diana is such a gift to our family. She has helped to cultivate many of those magical memories, and for that we are beyond grateful. Not only is her food fabulous, innovative, and perfect, she just exudes joy to all. Diana is so delightful, it feels as if you are cooking with a best friend. Each part of the meal is served with a smile and a thoughful story. The meal ends with completely satisfied guests that she created yet another happy memory for everyone to have forever.

We have worked with Diana for many years and know her to be extremely reliable and responsible. Her food is displayed beautifully, particularly her thoughtfully designed buffets. Her staff is helpful, courteous and extremely professional which is always important for a well executed event.

Chef Di has been teaching cooking classes to our students since 2016. She is fantastic! The kids adore her, running up and hugging her years after they’ve taken her class. Her recipes are elegant and sophisticated, yet simple enough to teach to the students. She has a calm and sweet demeanor that welcomes everyone into her world.
