catering testimonials


“I recently gave a large party in my home – something I find daunting – to honor my mother’s recent transition. Jes and her delightful crew were amazing. She held my hand through the planning, provided tasty cocktail recipes, and effortlessly provided the most delicious food imaginable. All of my guests were raving about the food/drink. Eye of the Avocado is the “go to” business in Nevada City for all of my future gatherings.”

– Pavana & Dave Bohegian

“Jes Taber has impressed upon me such devotion to artful food, that I have been unable to dine any other way since working with her. Meals have a broader meaning now. Flavor means happy. She has touch which brings excitement to simplicity and devotion to what our earth already has for our palates. Jes also has impeccable integrity. Working with her is such a joyful experience. She can woo a crowd of 100 with her ceviche. She completely understands yum. Clearly, Jes Taber is a gift to our entire community. We are so fortunate to have a woman who has the capacity to change the face of the culinary world in our midsts in such a male dominated profession.

-Megan McCollam owner of Polly’s Paladar,

“Jes is a dynamic chef, creating beauty in both the look and taste of each bite. She is easy to work with and makes me want to keep coming up with excuses to celebrate so I can continue to delight in her cuisine.”

-Alicia Funk of The Living Wild Project,

“Jes knows food. She knows food grown close to home is best. And home for Jes Taber is in the kitchen, where she turns a few simple ingredients into a sublime meal. A true artist who knows the subtlety and sensual power of taste, everyone needs to try this gal’s cookin’.”
