We’ve worked with Alma Catering twice now and each time they outdo themselves! My clientele go to a LOT of functions where food is served so they are hard to impress. Robin and her staff continue to provide the ‘WOW’ factor with each presentation. She’s easy to work with, flexible, and stays within my budget. Plus, my clients always have fun trying her food creations.

We hired Alma Catering to cater our daughter’s wedding and they did an amazing job! The presentation for each course was gorgeous down to the edible flowers garnishes, the flavors were outstanding, and they did such a great job cleaning up that I got my deposit back on the spot! The staff was professional and to this day, I still hear compliments about the food. I highly recommend Alma Catering for anyone wanting their special day to be memorable and stress-free.

Robin was hired to create a tapas menu for a special event we were having for our wine club members, a very discerning group. There were rave reviews on the flavors, the presentation, and the unusual menu, especially the ‘chocolate salami’. We will definitely be using Alma Catering again for other special events!
— Danuta Pfeiffer, Pfeiffer Winery
Robin was referred to us by a local special events business and far exceeded our expectations on the food!! The flavors were amazing, the presentation was a delight to all the senses, our guests felt very pampered by her professional staff and she presented an unusually creative, yet delicious, wedding menu. We would highly recommend Alma Catering for anyone considering marriage or any special event wanting an ‘out of the box’ experience.

. . . GOOD FOOD and wine stimulate a gathering in a way that the final result is more than the sum of its parts. I highly recommend it! We had a great party. Alma Catering got a standing ovation and everybody will remember our gathering for a long time.

Agreeing upon the menu was easy. Robin’s suggestions were exciting and turned out to be delicious too. The presentation was amazingly artful and beautiful.

We were referred to Robin’s catering company for our wedding reception and she did not disappoint! We want to let people know the food was AMAZING! Compliment after compliment poured in! And we absolutely loved it all! Thank you so much Robin, to you and your staff. We would definitely recommend you to anyone. :-)

”I’ve known Robin from our mutual membership in the Chamber and have always wanted to try her fusion soul food cuisine. I decided to hire her to cater my husband’s birthday dinner and wasn’t quite sure what to expect but knew it would be different! OMG! We had the most amazing 4-course dinner! The smells, the presentation, the tastes——over-the-top, out-of-the-box cuisine! She and her staff person arrived promptly and took over my kitchen which allowed me to create the rest of the ambiance for the evening. They were so professional, very attentive without being too in your face and my kitchen! She said we wouldn’t know that they’d been there when they were through and she was right! Everything was cleaned up and wiped down with no trace of their presence. My guests were thrilled to be so pampered; my husband and I just relaxed and let the evening flow. We have since hired her to cater another dinner and again, outstanding service from arrival to departure! Robin is easy and fun to work with and we will definitely be using her again for other special events.”

Alma Catering truly is food for the soul and Chef Robin is a beautiful, spirited professional. I have had the pleasure of knowing Robin since I moved to Eugene in 2013. At the time, I worked for the local food bank where Chef Robin served on the board. One morning she made a staff appreciation breakfast and I am telling you, I have never had food that good. Fresh, local and soulful, and we were all raving about it. Even the picky eaters had a good time. Fast forward to now, I am running Wellness Support Groups for residents of affordable housing and Chef Robin is helping me design menus that reflect holistic wellness. She is so easy to work with - prompt, effective and full of awesomeness. I believe that the spirit of a chef alchemically mixes with the food she prepares, and you are a lucky human if you get to eat Chef Robin’s food because it is infused with her lovely spirit. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Five stars!

Robin and I go way back as personal trainers and I’ve watched her build her catering business from scratch over the years. She catered my then, boyfriend’s birthday party for family and friends and received rave reviews on the unusual, flavorful and gorgeously presented foods so I knew she was the one to pull off catering our wedding. Again, she and her staff did an amazing job in planning and executing our wedding day down to the most minute details that Dick and I hadn’t even thought about! My guests were wowed, my husband was very pleased that I was so happy with the outcome, and Robin was just a delight to work with! I would highly recommend her for any occasion you need catered, large or small, formal or informal.

"I chose to partner with Robin at Alma Catering to cater our Basic Rights Education Fund Statewide Leadership Summit because of my previous experience eating her food at McKenzie River Gathering Foundation’s Social Justice Summer Party.  It was so delicious and well-presented that I knew our  guests would love her dishes.  She did not disappoint!  Robin was a true professional, from start to finish; she worked with me to create a menu that was within our budget, that addressed dietary issues, and had variety in her offerings.  She arrived on time, set up a beautiful lunch, and cleaned up like her business philosophy promised, "leaving no trace".  

The food got rave reviews, our attendees from every corner of Oregon were overjoyed at having as one attendee put it, "the best conference food I've ever eaten"!  People were encouraged to take seconds and thirds (many followed through) and everyone was well fed for our afternoon activities.  I am most definitely suggesting to partner with Robin for your next event and we are certainly going to use Alma Catering for more of ours!"

"We came to know Robin's cooking from attending an event she'd catered. We fell in love with her Spicy Lentils and knew that we wanted her to cater our wedding.

Robin was pure pleasure to work with—from the planning through the execution, she worked with us to create the menu we visualized all while staying within our budget. Her attention to details we hadn't thought of made our job so much easier when it came to making certain decisions.

Robin and her staff were total professionals—pampering our guests from the minute they arrived to the end of our cake cutting ceremony. The food was gorgeously presented and plentiful and most importantly, delicious! There were rave reviews from our guests on the presentation and flavors!

We would highly recommend using ALMA Catering for any occasion where you want a more 'adventuresome' menu than the mundane. Thank you, Robin, for helping to make our special day such a memorable occasion".

"We came to know Robin's cooking from attending other events she's catered. We fell in love with her food and unique flavors at first bite. The fact that she is a veteran made total sense for her to participate in this event,  since our event was about honoring veterans.

Robin was pure pleasure to work with—from the planning through the execution, she worked with us and the winery to create the menu we visualized all while staying within our budget. Her attention to details we hadn't thought of made our job so much easier when it came to making certain decisions.

Robin and her staff were total professionals—pampering our guests from the minute they arrived to the end of our Memorial Day ceremony. The food was gorgeously presented and plentiful and most importantly, delicious! There were rave reviews from our guests on the presentation and flavors!

We would highly recommend using ALMA Catering for any occasion where you want a more 'adventuresome' menu than the mundane. Thank you, Robin, for helping to make our special event such a memorable occasion".

"We first learned about Robin and ALMA CATERING by tasting her food at other local events. Since that first bite we’ve been looking for the right opportunity to have her cater an event for us.  

The opportunity presented itself when we hosted a thank you lunch for one of our amazing clients. Working with Robin was so easy. We told her why we were having the event, our budget, dietary restrictions, and all the services we needed.

Boy did she deliver!  The food looked amazing, the feedback from our client on the flavors was 2 thumbs up, and all within our budget. We’ve already recommended ALMA CATERING for another local event, and plan to work with her many more times in the future.

We highly recommended her for all of your catering needs."
