Sample Dinner and Party Menus

These are sample menus from past events. They were all custom designed in coordination with the hosts. They are meant to serve as an example only. I have hundreds of recipes at my disposal and would be happy to work with you to create a memorable menu for your event.

Pricing for catered events varies greatly depending on the menu, number of guests, and type of service: sit-down, buffet, or make-ahead. I will work with you to create a menu that works within your budget.  Prices include the cost of groceries, food preparation, some kitchen clean-up, and (in most cases) table service. (Make-ahead meals exclude service).
