Amazing food! The quality is unmatched in the LKN area. We order to save time and to know it will be awesome. I highly recommend ordering from Chef Peter. The steaks and sides are my favorites

I have an event venue in the heart of Cornelius, Mill Events, and we have been doing events for over ten years.  The owners of CG were absolutely lovely and so easy to work with!  I enjoyed having them in my venue, and the food was outstanding.  I will definitely be recommending them to my future clients!

We had a wonderful experience with Chef Peter and Carolina Gourmet. They catered several meals for our group, which enhanced the beautiful wedding weekend we had at Lake Norman. The food was incredible, and the service was exceptional. Highly recommend them if you’re looking for catering in the Lake Norman area!
