I have had the pleasure of using South End Catering for a fine dining event held at my home. Chef Ricky and his staff are consummate professionals. First and foremost, he provides dining options that work within the confines of your budget. That being said the quality of the end product is always great. Whether it be a simple or complex dish you can be rest assured the food and desserts will taste delicious. I was extremely pleased with his overall flexibility when coming up with the menu, the services he rendered and the way he ensured my kitchen was returned to the clean state he started in. Chef Ricky leverages his southern cooking sensibilities along with his classically trained skills to deliver some really authentic and tasty dishes. I highly recommend him and will be using him again in the near future!

Chef Ricky’s meal prep service is invaluable to me as a busy working mother with lots of demands on my time. The food is delicious with great portion sizes. If you find yourself short on time, but you still want well balanced delicious home cooked meals, you can’t do any better than this.

Thank you for the wonderful food and impeccable service at my graduation celebration! From the deviled egg appetizers to the red velvet cake for dessert, everything was scrumptious. I’m recommending South End Catering to all my friends!”

“Chef Ricky did an amazing job catering our corporate brunch in Baltimore, MD. The menu was perfectly pleasing to everyone’s palate. Among the offerings were curry chicken salad, salmon spread, and three kinds of quiches. The curry chicken salad was a hit – deliciously moist, tender and very flavorful. The salmon spread was delicately prepared and well balanced with morsels of fresh salmon and finely chopped dill – even those who were not salmon-eaters thought it was excellent. After the brunch, there were many still gathered enjoying what was left and commenting on how wonderful the food tasted. As a “foodie” myself,
I highly recommend Chef Ricky!”

“Ricky Davis and South End Catering catered a farewell breakfast for a co-worker. Ricky’s attention to detail is superb, the food and presentation extraordinary. Ricky surprised the honoree with a southern pound cake which is out of this world. I can’t say enough about the professional service I received, top notch. The farewell was a huge success for the honoree and the guests will always remember.”
