  Don't just listen to us, listen to someone who

has already experienced our expertise…

Andrew and his team put on a 40th birthday for us recently and it was absolutely impeccable.  From the pre-event planning to the clean-up, no detail was left untouched.  We were impressed by all of the flexibility as well as the ability to solve venue/food/beverage challenges.  Highly recommended for any event where quality, style, and execution are required.hat's this item about?

How do I even begin? In case the below is too long for you to read (although I promise to try and make it as useful as possible for anyone throwing an event), here is the gist: Andrew is the most creative, professional, good humored and talented chef + event advisor you will find, and he will ensure you get the event of your dreams - and have fun doing it.

When I started planning my wedding (just 5 months before the actual day), I knew I wanted something truly different: a colorful and wild yet decidedly upscale party that was more an interpretation of a wedding than anything else. The problem? I'd never planned an event before -- not even a dinner party. So I had no idea where to begin. 

And then I found Andrew Spurgin.

I stumbled across him when Googling something along the lines of "upscale event design". I didn't want someone who only did weddings (or even specialized in them), since I found that many wedding vendors had a hard time thinking outside the traditional box.

From our very first email, I found Andrew to be the most enthusiastic, inspired (and inspiring!) professional whose endless ideas, network of truly THE most talented vendors (most of whom he's worked with for decades!!), and good humor turned my anxiety about party planning into one of the best things about the wedding. 

Most telling is the end result, which I can honestly say was executed absolutely flawlessly. My initial vision wasn't just realized, it was elevated in nearly every way thanks to Andrew's guidance, support and suggestions. Also, his incredible menu drew raves from even my snobbiest guests (there were some very picky foodies in attendance), and I had more guests than I can count tell me this was the best food they'd ever had a wedding. This is especially impressive when you consider that due to some limitations at our venue, we had two other (large and reputable) caterers tell me they couldn't do a full menu there. Andrew managed not only to do a full menu, but to produce it gorgeously. 

When I look back on my wedding 50 years from now, I will always think of Andrew and the fact that it wouldn't have been half the event it was if it weren't for him. I don't know how anyone plans any beautiful and impressive event without him - truly!

A million thanks to him for giving me the best day of my life - and our guests a day to remember!

Andrew assisted my wife and i with a party at our home for my wife's 40th birthday.  Being the first time we hired a private chef we were unsure what to expect.  Let me tell you that Andrew over delivered.  From the first time i talked to him he was extremely professional and super into our party.  He gave us several great ideas for theme and food.  He even draws pictures of each plate so you can envision your dishes at your party.  The food was unreal!!  Miso sea bass was out of this world.  

Andrew doesn't stop there.  He was able to help with all facets of our party.  Gave us the name of an unreal bartender and also helped us find a great furniture company.  

Andrew's staff is second to none.  From the minute they showed up they were so helpful and professional.   They helped us set up all furniture, lighting and made sure our house was in order before our guests arrives.  Once the guest arrived they were top notch!  Our guest didn't stop talking about how great and helpful they were.  

If your looking for someone to help you create an unbelievable food experience and party then Andrew is your guy.  I cant thank him enough for creating a birthday to remember.  Thank you Andrew!!

Andrew's team catered our wedding in Coronado this weekend. It was truly flawless. They worked in an extremely small kitchen for the number of people attending. I lost count of the number of people that said it was absolutely the best food they have ever had at a wedding. I could not agree more. Despite the challenging circumstances, which included a strong chance of rain for a wedding on the beach, we never felt stressed in anyway. The event simply unfolded as planned. With all the stress involved with planning a wedding, that's really all you want on the big day. Make a plan and execute on the plan. That's precisely what happened. The team was was really fantastic and, as mentioned above, the food was outstanding. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Andrew assisted me in creating a world-class event for a myself and a host of esteemed wine-collector friends from around the country. 

This once-in-lifetime dinner was truly special as we were pouring some of the most iconic and rare old vintages from houses such as Château Margaux, Château Pétrus & many more. 

I shared what we were pouring with Andrew and tapped him to pair the plates. What he created stunned me and all the guests--it was a suite of what everyone agreed were perfect pairings! (And this was a group of guests that has eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the world.)

I have had the pleasure of working with Chef Andrew for approximately 20 years and he has never disappointed. I highly recommend Andrew to any discerning client, he and his team of consummate professionals are not to be matched!
