“I was planning my mother’s 70th birthday party and was referred to Samone @ Wishful Concepts. I live in the DC/VA area and was in town for only a few days to scout venues and caterers. Samone met with me for a last minute tasting and I was hooked!!! The white glove service was professional, warm, and friendly. The room set-up was impeccable. The genuine care and consideration that was generously displayed, has convinced me that Wishful Concepts Catering is the diamond in the catering world’s crown!!!!” – July 22nd 2016
“I don’t know where to start the staff was amazing and the food I still cant decide what we liked most, the Pistachio Chicken w/asparagus skewers, the Asian short rib potpie or the Cheesecake Lollipops!! Right from the start I was taken out of my little box and received a menu I had never heard of then came the tasting that was it, SOLD! Everything was beyond delicious. I will definitely use again!” – February 4th 2012
Samone is amazing! We had them do a corporate dinner/chef’s dinner in early December. They wowed the guests with their very tasty and different foods. Their service and attention to detail was second to none. Several of our guests said they will be using them for their upcoming events and we asked them to cater our Christmas party a week later. We will be using them for our another chef’s dinner and neighborhood charity mixer in the spring of 2016. In addition, we are considering trying their chef’s prepared meals because we are very busy and want to be able to eat healthy and at home.
We knew right away that Wishful Concepts were different. They wanted to know about us, our culture, where we came from, what we loved, and who we were, and translate that into the food. Samone created a special menu just for us, exactly who we were on a plate. Her New Orleans style Shrimp & Grits and Steak with a Spicy Shrimp Sauce brought both my fiance’ and I back to New Orleans… More importantly, it reminded my fiance’ of HOME since he was born and raised there.
“We are so lucky that we found out about Wishful concepts and were able to work with Samone and Matt. If it wasn’t for them and their team I know our wedding would not have gone as smooth and have been as successful as it was. They are just such genuine and easy going people, so easy to talk to and get along with. The first time we met with them we hit it off and knew they were the right choice for our wedding and catering. Samone is extremely passionate about her food and what she does and it shows as her food is absolutely delicious, and with her the options really are endless. Test tasting was a favorite, and they are not shy either. Samone and Matt were always in communication with us, making sure everything was going well with the wedding planning and catering. If we ever needed help with anything they were always willing to help in any way they could. We got one of their all inclusive options, which was the best thing we could have done. Not only was it budget friendly, but wishful concepts has an amazing team of vendors they work with, and they let you know right away who they would recommend. All my vendors, except for hair, were direct recommendations from Samone and Matt, and they all exceeded our expectations. I honestly just can’t say enough good things about Wishful Concepts. They really made my wedding experience positive. I would recommend them to anyone I know for their catering and wedding packages.” – October 5th 2015
“My husband and I used Samone’s personal chef services while we visited Florida on an extended vacation. She is amazing!! Samone cheerfully catered to all of our over-the-top requests. Not only did she accommodate our requests, but she was familiar with the diets we were on (anti-candida as well as The Bulletproof Diet and night-shade free). Then Samone took it all to the next level and made the food delicious, even with all of our extensive restrictions. Samone went way out of her way to deliver the meals to us. She was always a pleasure to see…not only because she came bearing healthy and YUMMY food, but because she brought her contagious smile and enthusiasm! She was always checking with us to make sure we were more than satisfied and to see if there were any changes we wanted her to make for the next time. Samone loves to read about food and even educated me further on the anti-candida diet. It was an amazing experience and we hope Samone will be available to cook for us when we return to Florida in the future.” – March 2015
“Samone and Mathew are such a wonderful team to work with! No regrets on hiring Wishful Concepts for our big day! We had our initial consultation with them that included samples of Samone’s talents (SOLD!). During our consultation we outlined that our wedding would have a twist on the cuisine to have an English touch with some Korean flare. Such different cultures to mix but NOT something Samone shied away from; she was thrilled for the challenge (such a relief!). After we set the plan we were invited in for a a full tasting of some of our options. However we were so busy neither my husband or I could make it in so Samone went out of her way to deliver our tasting to my work! She labeled everything, had directions for what sauces paired with each dish, and let me know that I could change anything! Way to go over and beyond with customer service; it made our lives so much easier! Sameone also heard how much we loved chilean sea bass and since we didn’t want to serve this for all of our guests, she prepared a special meal just for us (I’m going to cry just thinking about it!). On the day of, Samone had fruit and sushi delivered to our bridal suite (she made of course) – so needed, so delicious!
Another special touch she added was offering to say Grace at the reception prior to dining. I this was a great idea that I hadn’t thought of (we say Grace for every special occasion and holiday – why not our wedding?!). Many of my guests mentioned how great the blessing was and that they had never seen the chef bless the food. It was so appropriate since she prepared every delicious morsel.
Thank you for all of your service and attention to detail. The staff were so friendly and professional. I’m hungry just thinking of their food!!! THANK YOU! I can’t wait for us to plan another special occasion just to experience their food and service all over again. Wishful Concepts will be apart of all Mike and I’s life events!
Love always! The Zollar”
