I’d stick with the associate and hope and pray for the best!  I’d think the new associate would be of the same caliber as the other one (and probably want to do his/her best at your wedding, as it’ll be one of the first big events of their new position).

Don’t stress!

My first thought is “What does your contract say?”. If your contract says that that specific caterer is cooking for you, then I’d call him up and have a chat. If not, why not talk to said new associate and ask about coming in to sample some of his cooking? I don’t think that’s an unreasonable request considering you’re probably paying him a large sum of money in a month!

I would stay with the associate.  I’m assuming the associate worked with the original person for a reasonable period of time and has experience.

Id stick with it.  Isnt it the same catering company, just a different person now?  Im sure your original caterer is a professional that will pass along all your notes to his associate to make sure you get what you discussed.  Maybe see ifyou can arrange a meeting with him and the new person before he retires?

In response to your second post, I dont think its very often that a catering company is sold… I can see what you mean about if you book a caterer and that contact is no longer there but unfortunately thats how the catering business is.  Unless you own your own company, many managers change jobs frequently after learning what they need to.  Its not uncommon for managers to only stay 1-2 years before going to a new opportunity.
