Food should taste good!

Hudson Valley Caterer Taste Buds Required

Meet The Caterer

My name is Martine, and I was born and raised in New York. My parents are from Haiti, and I grew up in a community with quite a large Haitian population. Food that tastes good was not only available, it was expected.



The Food You Want to Eat

What Makes Us Different

If your taste buds are working, I believe it’s your responsibility to treat them with respect like you would other parts of your body. That’s why Taste Buds Required offers real, delicious food that you can serve to your friends and family with a smile. We offer Haitian catering for family events in New York and the Hudson Valley.


What People are Saying

Martine Dardignac cooked for my bridal shower. I can honestly say her food was amazing. Instead of the usual cheese and fruit platters or sandwiches. Martine threw down with home cooked soul\comfort food. It was delicious and helped give the event a relaxed and festive vibe. Many of my guest said that it was the best food they ever had at a bridal shower. I would
recommend her to anyone!


I was the maid of honor for the first time in my best friend's wedding. I was overwhelmed to say the least towards the end. But with Martine's help, the bridal shower and the wedding went great. She had all the bits and pieces needed. She planned a great bridal shower where the food and decorations were excellent. She is very easy going and tactful. Professionalism is something you don't see anymore, so when you find it the experience is top notch. Wonderful experience.


Martine threw a bridal shower for my sister. The food was the amazing and the games were on point. I was told by multiple people that it was the best bridal shower they had ever been to. I would highly recommend Martine to any potential bride or family/friend of the bride. Her attention to detail and organization made what could have been a stressful event a pleasure.
