I have had many opportunities over many years to work with Debbi.
She has always been accommodating, organized and on time.
This year because of various circumstances, we have been forced to alternate meetings in three different buildings.
Debbi has taken it all in stride, adjusting to the facilities provided.
Throughout the years of Debbi providing dinner for AAUW meetings,
her menus have been varied and always delicious!”
- Marietta Pulliam, Beaufort Branch AAUW
“This special note is for our Debbi Covington! Mitchell, our son, was married on May 26th with the reception held at Kate Gleason Park. Debbi Covington catered the reception and shared her talents with all of us. While walking around with the guests, they kept asking who handled the food.
‘Wow! It’s great!’ It was a pleasure for me to say ’Debbi Covington from Beaufort, SC!’
- Steve Brown, Steve Brown Catering
When I gave you the challenge of providing an elegant luncheon for 300 people
without the availability of a kitchen facility at our chosen venue, I was very nervous.
However, you totally exceeded my expectations! We have heard nothing but complements. Your presentation was beautiful, the menu you provided
was excellent, the food itself was scrumptious and no one left hungry as a result of the plentiful portions. Thank you for helping make the 2012 Friends of Caroline Hospice Fashion Show a tremendous success!”
- Janet Thompson, Beaufort
“As far as I can tell, Debbi does it all! I’ve seen her at farmer’s markets,
charity gigs (competing with Beaufort’s bests restaurateurs) and at private sit down functions.
She has the ability to create very satisfying meals in places that could be best
be described as “difficult”and outwardly she remains calm and pleasant.
What a trick! What a caterer!”
- Joey Gazdak, Habersham
“Delicious, beautiful, wonderful food is what comes to mind when I think of Debbi Covington. For the past ten years, Debbi Covington has exclusively catered our organization’s dinners. In fact, we have eschewed holding meetings at restaurants,
and selected meeting sites so that she could cater the dinners for our meetings.
Debbi’s presentation is flawless and creative, and the quality of the meals is impeccable. She is a true professional.
Many thanks for the delicious food and wonderful service!”
- Dr. Diana Steele, President of AAUW Beaufort Branch
“Debbi’s the best! Not only does she cater some of the best parties in the Lowcountry,

- Diane Voge, Editor, Habernews

and did an outstanding job! Good food and plenty of it.”
- H.H. “Bubba” Von Harten, Beaufort
“I had Debbi cater two of my most important events, a 25th anniversary dinner and a 50th birthday party.
She is wonderful to work with and delivers exactly what one wants, the way one wants it. Her food presentations are elegant and tasteful.
The dishes taste as good as they look and the quality of the food is impeccable.
If, at some point in time, there is a wedding in our family I will definitely call Debbi.”
