Of all the events I have organized, it is for the Poelon Gourmand that I received the most comments. It’s unanimous that everyone loves them. This weekend, for 30 years of my daughter, I again called the Pan Gourmand. The quality of the food, presentation and service are outstanding. Employees are a kindness and exceptional professionalism The Pan Gourmand is more than a caterer, it’s an experience. I recommend it for all kinds of events and for all budgets.
