Rachel provided exactly the perfect sit down luncheon needed to entice my guests to support a philanthropy dear to my heart - The Atlanta High Museum of Art! The tasty healthy food became the topic of conversation and was enjoyed by all ( including wonderful options for dietary restrictions)!
I am a certified chef with my own catering business. I was at an event where I was donating food, along with many other caterers, and noticed the delicious and artfully designed passed hors d’oeuvres from Yalda Provisions and asked to speak with the chef. I got her card and then hired her to cater a dinner for 90 people. As a chef I sometimes need to recommend another chef when I am unable to do the event the way I would. I am happy to know about Rachel.
My husband and I now joke that we can only have an event if Yalda is available. The food is fabulous, delicious and beautiful. Rachel plans inventive menus with new items each time. She is able to read between the lines and offer wonderful suggestions that are exactly what we want. Yalda has catered both large parties and small gatherings for us seamlessly. All the staff is lovely to work with beforehand and during events. And when Yalda leaves, if it were not for delicious leftovers, we would never know they had thrown a party. Many of our friends and guests have left our house with a Yalda business card. Yalda is a real find!
I had the pleasure of working with Rachel and Yalda Provisions in October of 2015 for Atlanta Eats Live, a local food festival with over 5000 guests in attendance. Yalda was one of the highlights of our Piedmont Healthcare: Living Better tent. Without question, Rachel’s table had the longest line, the best reviews, and the most attentive customer service. Rachel and her staff were timely, professional, and most importantly DELICIOUS. Voted on by attendees, Yalda’s spread beat out 40 Atlanta restaurants for the “Best Bite” contest. Rarely do you see someone so young which such talent and drive. I would work with Rachel again in a heartbeat. We were lucky to have her!
Rachel did such a great job with the party. She essentially selected the perfect menu, implemented flawlessly and brought it in under budget. Not to mention everything was delicious, especially those moon pies! I only wish I lived in Atlanta so she could do all my events.
Rachel Feinberg of Yalda Provisions is a breath of fresh air. Her cuisine is fresh and innovative. The ingredients she uses are of the highest. Rachel will search the market for the perfect texture of Kale to mix into her salad creations. ( We can attest to that!)We have used YP for very special family celebrations, from Baby Showers ( her mini dessert delicacies are adorable!)and Brunches to family dinners. She is one of the most accommodating and innovative caterers I know. ( I have even witnessed caterers come back to her events just to grab “just one more mini pop tart “ for their ride home from an affair). We are honored and proud to see Rachel Feinberg’s dream realized in creating Yalda Provisions. Her passion for a beautiful table, artfully created delicacies and balanced menu ideas are only eclipsed by her infectious, genuine smile in making it all happen for her clients. Thank you, Yalda Provisions!
