... Everyone: clients and their guests, our Sirius personnel, loved the evening at The Culinary Center.  We got so many wonderful comments on the dinner menu—it was exquisite and very delicious


I’m so glad we reserved the whole [place] for our event.  It was most accommodating for the 100+ people we expected.  The way you had it all set up was perfect so people could mingle comfortably; not feel squeezed into a room or table; enjoy a relaxed atmosphere...

... They really enjoyed themselves, so I appreciate all that your staff did to make it a success. Working with Mimsy was so wonderful - especially from afar! ...

We recently held our son’s rehearsal dinner at the KC Culinary Center in downtown Overland Park.

Our son is the pickiest 35-year-old eater!  No beef, no mixed foods, but loves chocolate. Mimsy helped us serve everyone a wonderful dinner and still met Dan’s eating habits. We started the night having everyone help make dessert.  Everyone one from the 6-year-old to the 70-year old, had a great time.  It was a wonderful way for our two families to meet.

The serving staff were so helpful and enjoyed my speech and gifts given to the bride and groom. The evening was the beginning of an awesome weekend.

I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done to help me decide on the perfect birthday plans....    
I had several other vendors to choose from and it really came down to you; you sold yourself, your customer service, the culinary center, the whole deal.  It is so comforting to know the people I am working with are just as excited about my event as I am.

We hosted a corporate event and had a wonderful experience working with the Culinary Center leading up to the event and the execution of the event.  They are very accommodating and their event staff goes above and beyond! Look forward to working with them again!

"I am so happy we chose the Culinary Center as the venue for our intimate wedding/dinner. Having been to several events there, I was confident Laura and her staff would deliver the kind of experience we wanted for our guests (and ourselves), and they exceeded my high expectations...  We have had so much positive feeback from our guests, and best of all, it was fun!"
  - Susan T.


"I’d like to express my thanks on behalf of the FDTI for a perfect event  . . . you understood what we needed and put it together and got the paperwork done, set up our staff, built our menu, everything was done so professionally. Our dinner staff couldn’t have been any more efficient, warm and welcoming . . .  By the way, the food was WONDERFUL!!! Every morsel was perfect! I hope the group gets to visit again in the future."
  - Dorothy N., Schiff Consulting Group, Ltd.


"You have an amazing business.  I’ve heard only positive feedback from everyone attending. We began our session as individuals with our own agendas; during the course of our lunch preparation, we came to realize how working together as a team is more productive in accomplishing the common goal . . ."
  - Kathy F.


"Being part of All Hands for Hunger was a relaxing and rewarding experience. While making a meal, it’s not possible to concentrate on much else so it was a great mental break from the everyday and being able to walk around and work with my hands was great! It was nice to help someone in such a tangible and specific way and it’s great to know that the meals we helped prepare fed a real need. Thank you!!"
  - Mark C.


"What a wonderful day you provided our family and friends with--giving us warm memories of a fun (and first) shower for our bride to be. Michael and Dana celebrated a beautiful wedding in Jamaica and then hosted a fun, upbeat reception back here in the states at a neat downtown venue with a loft atmosphere. So, all in all your event started the ball rolling.
Thanks again!"
  - Kathy W.

"Regarding the evening, I can only offer my sincere compliments to you and the entire staff. I received nothing but praise from my team for how fun and professional the event was . . .  Thank you for your professionalism and enthusiasm.  My hat is off to you and the entire staff at the KC Culinary [Center] for creating more than a dinner, rather a memory that will be with us for a long time to come . . ."
  - Jim C., Deluxe Financial


"I just wanted to thank you both for an extremely fun day at your Culinary Center yesterday. ….what a treat! . . . I think that participating in a group exercise such as yours takes teambuilding to a completely different level . . . .  thanks again for everything and also to Missy and Sheila for making the day extra fun-- they are EXTREMELY observant and do an excellent job!"
  - Dawn S., Cerner Corp.

"The Law Foundation Board met yesterday and those who attended Black Tie at The Culinary Center are still raving about what a fabulous evening it was. The conversation left those who didn’t make it, for one reason or another, pretty sorry they weren’t there. You and your staff could not have been nicer or more responsive. Thank you for all you did to make our event so special."
  - Paula Y.

"I just wanted to let you know that the dinner event on Friday night was a hit. One of our officers told me this morning it was the best time he’d had at any of these events. He’s been to quite a few, too. Both of my bosses were pleased as well. Your staff gave exceptional service, and they all raved about the food. Thank you for making it a special event for our General Management group."
  - Nan S.


"Our family has a child with severe medical needs. You have donated many meals to TNK foundation and our family has had the pleasure of eating them. Tonight was teriyaki chicken with sweet jasmine rice (one of our favorites). I just wanted to say thank you for giving to TNK because in turn they were able to help feed our struggling family . I truly can't thank you enough. Please choose them in the future as receipients of your wonderful foods. What a difference you all are making in the lives of others. Our family has been so blessed by the kindness of your organization and TNKs. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough. Humbled by your kindness."
