About Evan Williams Catering

Established in 1991, Evan Williams Catering has been serving the greater KC, Lawrence, and Topeka KS area for over 23 years.  Evan grew up in a home where hosting was a way of life.  Cocktail parties and pregame/postgame luncheons and dinners with a rotating guest list of new friends and old gave life to the home and joy to many.  This open door policy taught the Williams children the value of sharing with style and grace.  Evan has combined those life lessons, her classic culinary training and the home that welcomed all those special occasions to create celebrations for clients who are passionate about entertaining, food, and design.

Thanks so much for everything.  It was perfect, but why am I not surprised?


Thank you for an absolutely perfect luncheon!  The table setting was spectacular and the food delicious.  We all will have very special memories of this day.


Thank you so much for all your hard and amazing work.  You made everything so AWESOME and so memorable that it was our best day ever.  I can’t wait for you so see the photos.  Not only is everyone happy and having fun, but everything looks amazing.  Mama told me how much it meant, but I never realized how much until that day.  Thank you for being a part of it all and thank you for making our day so wonderful.

The party was beautiful as we all anticipated.  I don’t have any way of knowing whether other people report back to you how much we all brag on you.  I hope they do but many are reticent about heaping too much praise- often to the recipients embarrassment.  However, I can’t resist mentioning that it’s ever so admirable that you’ve found a career that you do superbly and that’s flexible enough to let you be a wonderful mom too.

We just received our wedding photos and I wanted to reach out to you again and thank you for all you did for us.  From the moment we met you we knew you, your house and your culinary skills were the right fit.  Everyone raved about the all three!  Your hospitality was superb!  We are ever grateful.

Genevieve and Darroll

Breathtaking is the only word to describe the food at our wedding.  We were in absolute awe of everything as were our guests!  Your food was equally pleasing to the eye as it was the palate.  Your staff was wonderful.  Evan, it was a lot of fun to work with you and we truly appreciate all that you did to make everything so perfect.  We cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for all of the hard work that went into the planning, preparation and execution.  From the ice cream cones to the “swirly” breadsticks- it was all AMAZING!

Kim and Paul

Wow!  What can I say?  The entire weekend was fun and fabulous, largely thanks to you and your talented team. Friday at your house was magical- good food, gracious service and a stunning landscape make for a perfect evening.  All of the out of towners got to see and taste the very best of Kansas .  And Saturday-well, let me just say that it was the best wedding food I’ve ever had and several guests said the same.  I know it was a busy weekend for you, but I thank you a dozen times over for making the my wedding vision come true. I hope we get a chance to work together again soon.


We cannot truly express how wonderful all of your work was on our wedding day!  Everything was absolutely beautiful not to mention delicious!  (Thank you for bringing me a plate : ) !)  I wanted to make sure I was able to take part in everything as well.  We especially appreciated the leftovers the next morning before we hopped on our plane. You all did the best job and we want to let you know how much we appreciate your hard work.  Everything on our wedding day was all we had hoped for and more!   By the way, people are still talking about how sensational all the food was!!!

The luncheon for my friends today was just perfect.  I knew you did things well, but this was exceptional and felt very special to me since it was exactly what I wanted.  The details to presentation and taste were exquisite from the shimmering black tea in the tall thin glasses and the artful pampering bites to the Pot de Creme in the little cups and the star shaped cake.  The portion sizes were just right and I relished the textures in the soup and the freshness of the citrus salad.  I had no need for over thinking and appreciated your attention to my fretting emails. A big, big thank you to your and your staff for your lovely service.  It was a memorable luncheon for sure.Thanks you again.

Most sincerely, Vicki
