Types of Cuisine Offered

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

At Puff ‘n Stuff, we specialize in a different variety of cuisines. We don’t try to pigeon-hole ourselves into just one, we try to make sure there is something there for just about everyone. We work with a lot of family recipes. We have customers that come to us from time to time and have an “Aunt Erma’s Special Cookie” that they’ve done. We have a lot of ethnic dishes that people come to us for and we certainly take a lot of time to work through those things and put a special twist or special twist for them and of course we give them an opportunity to taste it in advance. [The cuisine choices] are extremely diverse; we really try to do just about everything. We have traditional American Cuisine as well as a wide variety of different ethnic cultures. We are now getting into the Kosher side of the world as well, working within Kosher cuisine as well as our Indian Brides as well. We are beginning to see a pretty big influx of indian business and we are working with that community to try and develop some great things.

What Size Weddings Do You Cater?

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

We cater weddings of all sizes. A lot of the venues that we work with lend themselves to great, small intimate affairs, and others for large gala functions. We really pride ourselves in working with all gambits, we really don’t have a restriction or minimum guest count. A lot of the times, the smaller the group, the more important the group. WE try to look at each thing individually. Sometimes, during the year, it is not really conducive to bring very small groups in because it is exceptionally busy. But for the most part we will cater weddings of all different sizes, of all different magnitudes, of all different ethnicities, in all different reasons.  We cater primarily in Orlando, Tampa, but obviously everything  in between. We are going into the East Coast a tremendous amount–working into Jacksonville, FL, Daytona Beach, St. Augustine, and Ormond Beach.

Best Caterer Orlando | WOW Awards | Event Solutions Caterer of The Year | Puff ‘n Stuff Catering

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010
“We’ve won a number of awards and the first really was in 2006, we were a finalist for the Event Solutions Caterer of the Year Award.  We look at that as really the Holy Grail of the industry for us because it encompasses not only catering, but event production, design, entertainment, and all facets of the entertainment industry.  We weren’t happy with just being a finalist and a year later in 2007, we resubmitted once again and we were given the award.  It’s really a great thing, there are only 9 Caterers in the world that have received this award.  We’ve won a number of local awards, we’ve been recognized by the Knot, by Brights.com for a lot of excellence within the event and wedding industry, and most recently the Orlando WOW Awards.  We were just honored as both the caterer of the year and for a catering event.  When I think about the awards and what that should really mean to our clients, I think that should more than anything else, it leands credibility to us.  I think that helps them understand that they are coming to a company that has a reputation, that is recognized.  You can come to us and depends on us.  You can lean on us for your event.  It takes a tremendous amount of time to pull together these awards and submissions for these awards.  But actually being recognized and receiving the award is quite prestigious and we are very very proud of that.”

Why Is Puff ‘n Stuff Catering Different from other Florida Caterers?

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

“The thing that makes Puff ‘n Stuff unique from the other caterers, even though it sounds kind of cliche, really is our people. I know a lot of folks say that, but I truly believe in that here, within our culture. The Puff ‘n Stuff culture supports our team and it supports them in a way that it gives them the ability to excel at what they are doing. We have a unique process here that allows us to execute with precision and consistency even with the large variety and quantity of event we may do.”
