Chef Jo Anne was truly wonderful to work with - flexible with both our schedule and budget. So happy to have been recommended her + can't wait to use her in the future.

Line Producer

Chef Jo Anne always makes the best, healthiest food for my crews! I'm quick to recommend her to Production Managers every time I'm working on set. Vegans and meat-eaters alike, both love her food and it boosts morale on set. I <3 Jo Anne!!

Chef Joanne is one of the top caterers I've ever worked with. We hired her for courtesy breakfast and first meal and every meal was on time, delicious, healthy, and took into account every dietary restriction from our cast and crew.

She's a great communicator and a perfectionist. Would love to work with her again in a heart beat!

Chef Jo Anne was always on time, great at communication to ensure a smooth delivery, always brought plenty of food, always hot and well packaged. The gluten-free and vegetarian options were as delicious as the rest of the food. Everything was appropriately seasoned and fresh, can’t wait to work with them again and have some more of their amazing dishes! Highly recommend.


My first time working with Chef Jo Anne-

Easy to communicate with, able to work with a shifting headcount, and a fantastic chef on the day! Both crafty and entrees were very well portioned, diverse, and incredibly tasty. Clients and crew alike were beaming.

Highly recommend!

Jo Anne is an amazing caterer and I will recommend her to any New York productions. The food was always comforting and home cooked. +++


I did behind-the-scenes photography on a small feature and ate Chef Jo Anne's food for my two weeks on the production. She always brought hot, good food with fresh ingredients. She creates strong (but not overbearing) flavors; she plays citrus, herbs, meat and vegetables against each other to make pleasing contrasts. And I never saw us hold lunch because catering was late.

Jo Ann was absolutely amazing on set. Her food was always on time and absolutely delicious! Thank you for all your hard work!

Mitchell Welsh

Jo is the best. Her food is always delicious and healthy, she accommodates all dietary restrictions. She's a pleasure to be around and have on set. I won't hire anyone else to cater any of my productions, she's awesome.

Josh Goldsmith

I've hired Jo Anne roundabouts a million times to cater my crazy film shoots, and she's knocked it out of the park on every single one of them.

We were so lucky to have Chef Jo Anne catering our feature film! Over four weeks, she made us delicious and healthy food every day (including a vegetarian option), and she did so with a beautiful attitude. She even brought to-go containers so that we could save a meal for later if we wanted to.

Chef Jo Anne was amazing! Hired her for a fast turn around music video shoot and she knocked it out of the park - easy to work with, great food (accommodated the band's vegetarian set demands), and able to work with our budget. I will coming back for seconds...

Chef Jo Anne was a hit on set. Our crew couldn't wait to see what would be for breakfast and lunch the next day. She provided flavor and variety. We definitely would recommend Chef Jo Anne if you are shooting in the New York City Area!

JoAnne is a great partner. She is communicative, easy going and our crew was THRILLED with the food. We had a ton of vegan/vegetarians, and she was able to cater to ALL!

Great prices, great service.

Jo Anne has catered two small indie features I've been at the helm of now, and in both instances she has been wonderful on all fronts - good food, accommodating of our minimal resources, and great to work with.

Chef Jo Anne catered our 2 week shoot and her food was phenomenal! She also makes gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, etc. options for all dietary restrictions/needs. Every day the food was delicious and liked by our entire crew. Hire her for your next shoot!

Allison Ferner

Chef Joanne provides excellent food at a price that even fits in a student film's budget. She is also exceedingly pleasant to deal with and handled various dietary restrictions on a 60 person set with no problems. I would recommend her to any shoot.


We have been working with Jo Anne for our last 5+ productions and have enjoyed great quality food and superb client services. Every meal was unique and all her coworkers are extremely friendly, courteous and hard working. Jo Ann's professional makes my job easier since I never need to worry about feeding my crew.


Jo Anne made outstanding food for the last two productions I worked on. She's willing to make adjustments to fit your schedule, and she supplies all necessary items, including plates, utensils, trays, and Sternos to keep the food warm when there are delays. I heard multiple people say it was the best set food they'd ever had!

Ben Kallam

Jo Anne and her chefs created affordable and delicious food every day and were always happy to take care of vegetarians and people with food issues. She always went the extra mile and that's important when budgets are tight!

Adam B

Jo anne and her staff were great. They worked with our tight budget and provided great food that our entire crew raved about. I will certainly contact her for my next film.

Michael Cataldo. We had need of someone who could provide craft service plus a small easy to manage meal that had to be set up and available for our crew and talent pool of 35 people, and it had to be done on a train. In the search for such a service I could not find anyone who "got" the simplicity and ease I was looking for - no tables, flowers, loose goods, dips and chips, salsa, etc. ..it had to be simple and good. JoAnne "got it" right away. She understood exactly what I needed and provided a great bagged craft service for everyone, plenty of drinks, and fabulous burritos that were so easy to manage - plus she came with such a wonderful attitude and spirit. ... And her price beat the competition. JoAnne you were wonderful, thank you!

Very nice and affordable craft service


Awesome food for a hungry crew!!! Served with love and care and not killing our small budget - yet feels like a much bigger budget lunch! We are very grateful!!

Jo Anne is flat-out amazing. She was very accommodating of the needs of our low budget feature and unique dietary constraints, and everyone loved the food itself.
