How Catering Sucked the Life Right Out of Me

By Sudi (Rick)Karatas

If you’ve ever done catering or been to a catered event this book is for you!

Project Overview
This book gives you lots of food for thought, literally. The juicy stories will make you laugh and cry and teach you what not to do at catering events, and they definitely will make you crave the mini hot dogs!
With over 25 years of catering experience in both New York and California, the author shares the worst and the best of them. Mostly the worst. His stories include weddings (one with a runaway groom), a bar mitvah where O.J. Simpson was a guest, a $5 million birthday party for three- year- old twins, and an unforgettable gig on 9/11.
You’ll get an inside peak at what goes on behind the scenes at all kinds of events, many with celebrity guests. The many nightmares and ‘flustercucks’ that Karatas survived are brought to life as well as stories involving past co-workers, one of whom now directs movies for Lifetime and another who is on the show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
