Our most popular menu selections

We like to tell our clients that it's not ALL about the food when it comes to a great party, but it is our most favorite part. Whether it's an evening of appetizers or a classic celebration with hors D'oeuvre, dinner and dessert, we are full of brilliant ideas that will satisfy and delight your guests, highlight the location, and work within a sensible budget. Our prices vary according to each specific order, but general guidelines are listed in each category. Most parties with our amazing staff start around $80. per person. We can do it for less and we can do it for more! We are so flexible, we'll surprise you with our ability to make you happy.

Appetizers & Starter Menus

There are several ways to serve these delightful bitefuls. They can be stationary or tray passed, we can do a fun assorted fresh and dried fruit and an array of cheese installation, or a more intricate display of petite bites depending on the size of your crowd. Stationary platters start around $49.00, and individual appetizers start at $3. each and top out around $6.00 for the fancy ones. Most clients do a combination of both.

Our Most Popular party Menus

The gift of longevity and experience has enabled us to create a formula that works every time! Of course we are flexible, but these menus are tried and true, and our fool proof formula stands superior. Our clients keep coming back for a little "Fresh and Healthy" and "Tuscany Table" spreads, making them the most favorited menu combinations. These menus are reasonably priced at $26.00 per person, and available year round. We can always mix and match to suit your palate and the seasons.

All We Do for parties

Here's a comprehensive list of most everything we do. From soup, sustainable seafood, additional entrees and complements, it's listed by courses, with a full vegan section, featuring interchangeable sides and entrees. We welcome your ideas and preferences so we can make recommendations for your event menu. If you see something you like, or have an idea, we can create a menus and recipes based on your inspiration!

  • Layers of #history, layers of #love...Jewish #tradition says that when Abraham and Sarah got #married they did it under a #canopy or tent with no sides (a #chuppah!) because all were welcome to #celebrate their love ❤️. Our hearts overflowed watching this couple's guests building the chuppah before the ceremony- young and old wishing them well and helping send them on their way.  #mazeltov! #ilovemyjob #ilovemyclients #jewishwedding #smogshoppe #kisses #wedding #weddings #weddingplanner #weddingplanning #losangeles #losangelescatering #losangeleswedding #jenniecooks #jenniecookscatering
