Julie & Chris, from Oregon
I just wanted to thank you again for helping to create the most beautiful wedding day I could have hoped for. The food was amazing! I love the attention to detail… The lights and music were perfect. Everyone loved the bartender. The flowers were absolutely incredible! They way they did the wedding arch with the flowers spread out just like I wanted them, and my bouquet, the flowers on the tables…it was just so beautiful & exceeded all my expectations. It was a pleasure working with you. Here are some pics you might like featuring food & the set-up. I have rights to all of them if you choose to share them on your website/social media you are welcome to do so. My sincerest thanks to you...

Debbie Smee, Social Chairman, Kolea, Big Island, HI
On behalf of the Board and owners that have attended our HOA dinners, we thank you again for a fabulous evening! It is the highlight of the year! It is always a pleasure to work with you knowing every detail will be handled with the utmost care and the meal will be outstanding! Mahalo again.
Alissa & Mike Makens, South Carolina
Mahalo nui loa! Just wanted to send you one more note thanking you for everything for our vow renewal supper. Our friends are still talking about it and it's so fun to think back at that special night - it already seems like so long ago! Unfortunately things didn't go as planned for the ceremony, so thanks for saving the night. I am sure we will see each other again in the future somewhere down the line. I think my parents are going to celebrate their anniversary/retirement at the house in September/October, so I will keep you posted because I would LOVE to treat them to a Chef Katherine Dinner Party Supper 🙂
Unbelievable!!! Beyond all expectations!! Amazing Food!! Spectatacular Presentation. Thank you sooo much for two "Outrageous" evenings of PURE GOURMET BLISS!!!...We had such a fabulous time in Hawaii! Without a doubt eating your INCREDIBLE food made the trip even more fantastic! We just loved seeing you and cannot wait for our return to Hawaii so we can enjoy your amazing talents again!
Thank you for always making Hawaii our favorite destination. Your attention to every detail and your "over the top" fabulous food is always our favorite treat!
A Five Star Michelin Restaurant served in your own backyard!!! Blown Away once again...but then again, we are always blown away by your delicious delectable gourmet food!!! Every detail was perfect!!! You made our 17th Anniversary in Hawaii a Memory of a Lifetime!!!...Cheers to Outrageous Gourmet and Chef Katherine.

Drew Carver-Peterson & The Carver/Fein/Kauffman Family
Chef Katherine is AMAZING! During our nearly two week vacation to Hawaii, no other meal surpassed the one she made for our family. She is such a lovely person; an absolute joy to be around. She encouraged me to try fish much to my reluctance, and I actually liked it! A truly life changing meal, and the highlight of our trip! We cannot wait to return to the Big Island for Chef Katherine’s cooking alone....
P.S. Your Almost Famous Dinner Rolls” are INCREDIBLE! I could have eaten them all in one sitting!!!".
Sandi Simon, Kukio Homeowner
My group of 24 family members were able to have dinner here at my house, every night over the holidays and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, wonderful food and your creative flair, without having go out to a restaurant!!! Thank you Chef Katherine, for magically transforming my House into a Home!!! We never had this much fun in this house!!!! My daughter said it was one the best holidays that she has ever had and she will have memories of a lifetime. Everything was "Over the Top!!!"
Kristina Mackie Bussert
I had a truly amazing experience having Katherine cater my wedding in Hawaii. The food was beyond words and the service was fabulous! She made my wedding feel stress free and she thought of every detail in advance. I would recommend her for any event over and over. It was fantastic! My wedding was an unforgettable night and it was much in part to Katherine. Thank you!
Bob Furness...Kaillua Kona, Hawaii
Chef Katherine from the very beginning was attentive to every detail, going above and beyond by also helping us to plan, working amazingly with all our vendors, and relieving our stress all along the way. Truly amazing! Once it came to event time both Chef Katherine and Chef David Paul excelled beyond all imagination. Firstly with the rehearsal dinner and then with the main event, contributing to everyone's enjoyment and all the positive comments of it being the "BEST WEDDING" most of our guests said they had been to! Thank you and Mahalo to the whole team who were awesome! And made our special day so MAGICAL.
Aidalynn Yurtola Furness
My wedding was amazing! I can only compliment by the feedback my guests provided, that it was the very best wedding they've been to and that the food was amazing and delicious, and my guests are in the food and beverage industry and business!
Shayna Reyes Martin, WA
Katherine and her crew were absolutely everything I asked for and then some!!! Outrageous Gourmet, took care of business for me. They helped me with things I wasn't sure about, helped keep me close to budget, paid attention to all my requests especially the dietary restrictions for my young daughter. We had a "drop off night before" supper with all the fixings, Katherine came herself warmed up and set up for our family and guests, as well as left behind a wonderful "morning of" breakfast for us. I felt like I've known her forever!!!... That's important to me, MUST BE PERSONABLE and make me feel it's more than a job. My reception dinner was elegant, intimate and just enough shabby chic for our little crew... Once again personable. It was so much more than a reception dinner... The Big Island is the place to do a special moment and please allow someone like Katherine and her crew come in and take care of you... Can't wait to find a way to have her taking care of us again for anything and everything.
Karly B...Washington D.C.
Would recommend 100-times over!! Outrageous doesn't even begin to capture how incredible the dining experience my family and I had indulging in a delicious meal with Chef Katherin and her team. From the first conversation, I had with Chef Katherine, through the private event she and her team catered were nothing but professional, helpful, and innovative...the ahi smoke bowl is a MUST. Working with the Chef was a delight, I shared with her that I wanted to create a special evening for my family and her event planner and chef mind got straight to work. She delivered both ambiance and a unique dining experience my family is still talking about. Chef Katherine prepared edamame, spring rolls, smoked ahi bowls, pot stickers, kalua pork, mahi-mahi (fresh catch), vegetables, coconut rice, onion rolls, and chocolate volcano cake. The food was both presented beautifully and most importantly, was delicious. I cannot emphasize enough how good the food was, having a diverse family with very adventurous eaters and high expectation of their food, Chef Katherine more than delivered. We savored every bite. That doesn't even capture the attention to detail she and her team put into the event, we even had special made leis made for each of us, including an adorable flower crown for my one-year-old niece. I know my family will be back in Kona in the future, and hopefully we can work with Chef Katherine again.

We love all of the beautiful ALOHA you had given to us over the week. We will never, ever, forget your wonderful cuisine and hospitality, ever! We can't wait to come back to the three best dinners we have ever been served! ...THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR HOLIDAY SO MAGICAL - All the very best...
Lillie Kraver (Mother of Bride), Alabama
"Hi Katherine...we are finally home. Tina & Michael are still in Maui. Again, thank you for the WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE you presented us with for the wedding. It was awesome and everything was excellent. I could not be more pleased. Everyone is still talking about how great the food was. It was an ENCHANTING EVENING! God Bless!
Derek Bullen, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Katherine, your work is AMAZING, the cooking and the total entertainment package was MIND BLOWING!!! The food, presentation, and staging were second to none. We were very blessed to have you cook for us in Hawaii! You're the best! Love and Blessings.
Carroll, San Rafael, CA
The food, drinks, service, decorations, professionalism, and effort that Chef Katherine and Outrageous Gourmet provided for our wedding was top quality. Our guests remarked that it was the best catered event they'd ever attended, best food, great signature cocktail (mango margarita with red rim.) When the wind made the outdoor setup impossible, they went to plan B and plan C without missing a beat, and offered us alternatives as they went along. Katherine's full service event staging was worth waiting for her to have time in her busy schedule to get us her detailed estimate of the various services she offered....Rest assured, she is on top of all her clients' needs, and sometimes is ahead of them, suggesting items they may not have thought of.
Sarah Davey, London, England...
Great chicken salad today - and we can't stop raving about the dinner last night. Every last detail was thought of - from flowers to candles. The food was some of the best we have experienced on the island, and your approach was so friendly and professional. The kids loved working with you, and we enjoyed every aspect of your service (while still in Hawaii)
...(One month later) Cloudy London seems a million miles from Hawaii – in fact the opposite side of the world! We have great memories of our dinners with you in Hawaii and we are all saying that the meals that you cooked for us were easily the best that we had on the island. Please know that I sang your praises to the people who manage the property and I hope that they will recommend your services to other guests. Your professionalism ranked as highly as the food you prepared!
Jesse & Renee Ortiz, Hillsborough, CA
Thank you for creating one of the most memorable evenings of our lives. What an incredible experience! Your menu selections, the presentation and your professionalism were beyond our expectations. Your personality and overwhelming hospitality made you part of our family for the evening. You’re truly a superstar….Our week’s stay was a once-in–a-lifetime experience and you were a major part of making it so. Thank you again for everything and you can be sure that anyone going to the Big Island will get a huge recommendation from me to have you create an unforgettable experience for them too.
Bill Moissant & Family, Portland, Oregon
Chef Katherine came to our rental home on the Big Island Hawaii and cooked in our kitchen and out on the BBQ grill, a wonderful feast which included amazing appetizers, salads, delicious entrées of smoked Kalua pork and grilled teriyaki chicken. The dinner ended with an outstanding dessert of Tropical Bananas Foster. The whole meal was memorable and the table was impeccably set. Thank you, Chef, for a wonder birthday celebration that we will always remember
Mike K, Poway CA
One of the best dining experiences of our lives.....Celebrated my wife's (surprise) birthday with a fantastic dinner of seafood and pork....great appetizers and wonderful welcome drink. The service was awesome, the food fantastic and the chef and her staff took care of all prep, serving and cleanup......we just sat back and enjoyed a wonderful meal that we will never forget...it was like having the five star restaurant come to our condo....relaxing and wonderful experience for our entire family.

Your dinners are by far the BEST DINNERS I have ever eaten in my ENTIRE LIFE...especially your steak and lobster dinner... the steak was so tender and the lobster was so sweet and juicy... and we eat out all the time!
Stan & Judy Dixon, April 2012
Mahalo nui loa for the most amazing 50th wedding anniversary dinner on the planet! Every detail from the magnificent table setting to the presentation of each course was WORTHY OF A MAGAZINE COVER!!! The food was fabulous. The secret of it all was the spirit of aloha with which it was all prepared and delivered!!! Our love and thanks for making our special night so unforgetable. Again, mahalo!

Last night was remarkable and on behalf of the Skechers Performance Team...THANK YOU for everything. The event was a hands down hit with us, and our guests.
P. Renaker, California
We had an amazing dinner with private chef Katherine Louie of Outrageous Gourmet. She's the BEST CHEF we've ever experienced at any of the Exclusive Resorts residences....GREAT AMBIANCE - she brought some pretty table decorations like a mini-ice sculpture, tropical foilage, an array of candles. She also did a special menu for the kids with tender juicy grilled chicken kabobs, broccoli trees, fruit, rice, and "worms in dirt" - chocolate mousse with crushed oreo cookies, and gummy worms poking out - a huge hit!!!
Kendee & Doug
I want to thank each of you and your entire teams for making our wedding a magical event. It have to say that you nailed my vision. It was all that I had been dreaming up for the last many months. Our family and friends were in awww of the event. We were so thrilled to be able to make it such a special time for everyone. Everyone has said to us over and over again that they were amazed with the entire event. This is because of each of you. Thank you for making it happen!

Just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful, tasty evening you provided for us and our friends back in January. The food was delicious & the table setting phenomenal.

Again, thank you!
Debbie Smee, Social Chairman
Thank you Katherine for making our annual Kolea HOA dinner a “first class” event. I have received nothing but compliments on the beautiful presentation of an outstanding gourmet meal and wonderful aloha décor. Your attention to details made my job of co-coordinating this event from the mainland very easy. It was such a pleasure working with you to provide an evening that went beyond the expectation of our owners. I look forward to the next
opportunity to work together and enjoy more of your outrageously delicious food! Mahalo
Marty Corrigan, Kona Natural Soap Company
Aloha Katherine, I met you at the Cooper's 90th Birthday party event and wanted to you know how impressed we were with your services. You probably don't get a lot of feedback from guests but I thought it might be important to you and a different perspective by hearing from a happy guest. Your employees provided the utmost professionalism and marvelous service. Your people made sure the guests were happy, hands filled, and thoroughly comfortable. Your gourmet selections were spectacular without being too comprehensive. The small hand size portions were perfect and beautifully done. A decadent epicurean delight for everyone. Much aloha to you and your staff and keep up the excellent work.
A. Anderson, Hualalai Homeowner
SOOO Delicious!!! Everything was FABULOUS! We loved having you here. Everyone had a great time!!!! Mahalo!

Thank you again for two amazing dinners! They were BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS for presentation and deliciousness! I really appreciated the keiki meals, too. Sometimes, they can be treated as just an afterthought, but you put in so much effort there, too. They were also amazing, beautifully presented, and the kids loved them! Thank you for two wonderful nights - YOU ARE TRULY AN AMAZING CHEF AND ARTIST.

We just returned from beautiful Hawaii with our children, their spouses and grandkids. If you are going to have a chef, I highly recommend Katherine of "Outrageous Gourmet." She is interactive, even put our 10 year old to work, sets a beautiful table and the food was fabulous!
Mark H, Oklahoma
We just returned from the Kohala Coast and had Katherine Louie as our Private Chef on two occasions. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Katherine - the food and service was as good, and perhaps better, than any private dinner I have had at any Exclusive Resort location. Dining on the patio, watching the sunset is very hard to beat. My wife and 4 teenage boys all thought it was one of the HIGHLIGHTS of the trip!!!

"I WAITED ALL YEAR to eat your breakfast again!!!. I am so excited and can't wait to eat your food again!"
Thank you for the wonderful meal and presentation. It was by far the best dining experience we had during our stay in Hawaii. MY KIDS LOVED EVERYTHING but especially love your Ceasar Salad Dressing and Onion Rolls, I was wondering if it would be possible to get the recipe for both? - Thanks Again.
Mark & Laurie S., Chicago
We've had other Private Chefs before with ER, but this is the BEST experience by far. Not only the food was phenomenal, but the dining experience was "Outrageous!" You took the extra time to make this evening extra special...Thank you.

Everything was wonderful-and the songs were a delight... Thanks so much for making this occasion so special for my family.

I wanted to thank you for all that you did. Your food was sooo delicious. I had no idea how much fun our evening was going to be with you. Everybody loved it, especially my boys. Thank you again.
We had a wonderful time when we were there last week...Chef Katherine is a great choice for a location when there doesn't seem to be really great restaurants generally (Big Island) in our experience.
Crisi A, Virginia
Outrageous Gourmet is the BEST. .We were so impressed with her professionalism and great service... The kids loved it just as much as my husband and I did...YUM...every last thing from the Onion Rolls, to the mini crab cakes, to the festive Hula Girl cake were homemade and we enjoyed the Hawaiian decorations she brings for the table. The kids loved it!!! It was by far the most enjoyable and tasty meal we had while in Hawaii, I am still thinking about the experience. My daughter and I want Katherine to go on BRAVO'S TOP CHEF!!!! Bon Appetite!
Carl & Yvonne E, Singapore
Everything turn out just as I expected and beyond all expectations!!! Yvonne and I are very pleased with how everything turned out (Birthday & Independence Day Party).

Thank you very much for putting on this wonderful 30 anniversary dinner for us. Each course was more fantastic than the prior one and was a wonderful experience!!! We very much enjoyed your and Sonya’s hospitality. We will remember it always.
If you were to pull out a dictionary and look up the definition of LUCKY, you would see this, a picture of 12 lucky men having delicious "Baby Back Ribs" prepared by the Outrageous Gourmet!!!
We truly enjoyed the meal and the company. You and Sonya did a great job!!! We loved the way you involved Kellen and he had a lot of fun.
Fran & Maury R.
I don't remember my mom's apple pie ever looking like or tasting like yours! Yum... Everything was sooo delicious....Thank you for another lovely meal
Tierney Helmerst Galchuttt & Phil Galchutt, San Diego, CA
Thank you so much for making us such a wonderful feast! How lucky are we??? We appreciate you making our day (wedding) so special and meaningful! Mahalo!
Chef Katherine was just fabulous! We had a catered dinner at a home that we had rented for our vacation. The occasion was our wedding reception dinner. They brought in everything that was needed and every single dish was made using locally grown organic ingredients! Prior to the dinner, Chef Katherine worked closely with us via telephone and email to select a menu of our choice. The food was amazing! It was delicious and fresh! It was prepared and presented in ways that made it look mouthwatering (WHICH IT WAS!!). After our wedding guests left for the evening, my new bride and I snuggled out on the deck under the moonlight while Chef Katherine and her staff continued to serve us wine and desert and they also cleaned up everything from the dinner. It was a full service experience that I will repeat the next time that I am back on the Big Island!! Thank you Chef Katherine for making our wedding day so wonderful!!
The Jarvis', Canada
We thoroughly enjoyed our "Fresh Catch of the Day," which you catered...It was made so much more a "Party" with many added touches...We were touched by your song at the end of the evening as well. You have an amazing team... Many Thanks.

Without a doubt, HANDS DOWN, your food was the BEST FOOD compared to all the restaurants dined at all week. Everything was cooked to perfection. Absolutely delicious. Thank you for making out last night here so special. When we come back, we'll be sure to reserve your services for the earlier part of the week, so we will have time to enjoy the leftovers! Mahalo.
Susan & Alex Vargas
Thanks for helping make the RECEPTION so PERFECT!!! We appreciate all that you and your staff did to make our wedding reception as smoothly as it did. Our guests raved about the food from the presentation to the taste! We're still receiving compliments about how much our guests enjoyed the cocktail party...Mahalo.

SIMPLY DELICIOUS is exactly the word to describe Katherine's DIVINE PRESENTATIONS and EXTREMELY DELICIOUS and succulent pupus, lunches, dinners or ANYTHING SHE PUTS HER HANDS ON IN THE KITCHEN!!! I have been one of the lucky ones to be at many of her catered affairs!

Everything was wonderful! The food was fabulous! I usually don't eat that much at my own parties, but your food was so good that I ate everything! Your sauces were amazing....Will you travel to do a party, maybe a Luau, at our home in California? (Answer: Of Course!)

Every course of your food was delicious, even the kids Mac & Cheese is the best we ever had!!!! Your grilled fresh catch was my favorite because it was so moist. My fish never come out that way! (private cooking lessons next year?) Thank you for making my birthday dinner sooo special.
