Caterer needed in Dutchess County

Any good caterers in the Rhinebeck - Red Hook area? Doesn't need to be fancy.
Also, a good bakery there for a birthday cake?

  1. I've heard very good things about Corsino Cakes based in Red Hook. They don't have a storefront, but you can check out their website:

      FYI: Corsino Cakes is no longer in business.

    2. We love Leslie at Calico in Rhinebeck. We even bring our children there for their birthday every year to pick out a birthday cake.

      If the birthday is for little children, the "udders" at Holy Cow are very popular. They're just ice cream in a cupcake cup but it makes for easy serving and they're ice cream is really good.

      For a caterer, I love, love, love Hugh at Terrapin Catering. Josh is the chef and he has never done me wrong. And Hugh is an amazing help. We had them deliver some food to our house for my son's baptism and I was expecting the entree to be good. But the mac and cheese we got for the kids was the best anyone had ever tasted and the adults couldn't stop eating it too. And the "simple green salad" was way more than that! It had a wide variety of fresh veges including asparagus and few fresh herbs that just made it wow! They even delivered it in beautiful serving bowls that they trusted me to return. I can't say enough about how wonderful they have been at every one of the events I've catered through them.

        We wound up using J and J Gourmet for a caterer and everything was GREAT...both food and presentation.

        1. Try Luscious cupcakery in Newburgh ny. She does excellant cake, Corsino cakes are no good. You can find her website on Google. She delivers up to Rhinebeck or Red Hook.
