JAMM is so very lucky to have so many great event vendors in our area that we have the privilege of working with regularly. We’d like to highlight the gifts and talents of Kathy G and her staff.
Owner, Kathy Mezrano says she sort of fell into the catering business. Growing up in a family who loved to cook, Kathy’s father worked in wholesale produce, and her family dining room was the center piece of their lives. After a particularly successful birthday party catered and hosted by Kathy, her catering business was born over 20 years ago.
When asked about what sets Kathy G apart, she reminds us that great food is always the goal and is proud that her company has developed a reputation for immaculate presentation. The old saying that we eat with our eyes first has certainly spelled success for this group. They were voted Best of Birmingham 2012 with Best new Hors d’oerves and Best Presentation. Kathy G has also been awarded the ISES Awards in Atlanta for catering and design as well as the CATIE award from ICA.
A large part of Kathy G’s Birmingham business consists of weddings. According to Kathy, brides should do their homework when selecting a caterer for their special day to avoid pitfalls. The bride should make sure the caterer they select is insured, health department approved and liscenced before getting roped into paying penalties for non-compliance with venues later. You also want to make sure you’re comparing apples to apples when shopping for the right caterer. The price from one caterer might be lower because it doesn’t include the set up fee, cleaning or even serving materials (like plates). Compare before you sign. Customization is also important in weddings and a good caterer should want to know what you want and like to eat and be able to make that happen for what you’d like to spend. Any budget and culinary taste can be achieved with a willing team, and Kathy G wants the food to be your favorite wedding element.
