Here is what others are saying about Ripe:

“Ripe recently catered a 50+ person party for myself and my husband. Our only complaint was that there were no leftovers for us to continue to enjoy, as our guests went back for seconds and thirds! Our guests were both vegan and non-vegan alike, and everyone truly enjoyed the food. Even the kids loved the BLT Bites appetizers! I appreciate that Ripe is not only vegan, but health-supportive as the menu focuses on organic and local ingredients, uses whole grains, lots of vegetables, and even has a wide-variety of gluten free options available. Stephanie worked with us to design a menu that would fit the needs of our party and delivered food that was very fresh (the pies were still warm!) I was truly pleased with the services Stephanie provided, and I think we even converted some of our non-vegan guests to embrace a meat-free diet. I would recommend Ripe to anyone looking for healthy food for their next event.” – Marcee L.

  1. Hi I am wondering if you can cater a wedding next November in Freeport, TX? It is one hour away from downtown Houston

  2. I’m Interested in more information about the semi private cooking classes, as I do live outside of the beltway in the energy corridor. How long and how much would it be?

  3. I wanted to find out more about your cooking lessons you offer. We are just outside the beltway in the northwest area. Are there certain recipes you offer to the lesson? What would be the additional cost for distance outside of beltway (cypress, tx)?
