We're having family in from all over the country to celebrate our son's baptism in May. Any recommendations for a good caterer east of the caldecott tunnel for a reception afterwards? Many thanks for your assistance.

    You might want to try Bon Vivant Catering in Livermore. Kim has been extremely nice during the planning process for my cousin's wedding and my co-worker really liked her food when he got married last October.

      I highly recommend Barbara Llewellyn. She is based in Oakland, but I have been to several events she has done east of the Caldecott. She did a retirement lunch for my boss and I was very pleased. I have attended some fabulous cocktail parties she has catered...the hors d'ouevres are great. Her website is www.barbarallewellyn.com.

        Jayne Byrd is fantastic. Her number is 925 934-5656. She has her own signature dishes, but will certainly be happy to consult with you if you have a specific menu in mind. I have attended a dozen or so parties that she catered in the Orinda area.
