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 $25.00 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!

  • Okay people...#swisschard #STEMS are #ontherise!  We first noticed them in 2015 when #bonappetit wrote about 19 ways to use them.  We never waste anything and of course there was pickled, sautéed, puréed and the like - but a few weeks ago the #nytimes (in their Thanksgiving edition) recommended #grilling them!  Super simple - #gabriellehamilton suggested blanching, giving them a good char on the grill and dressing them with garlic oil and a bit of lemon.  Duh...delish!  Now we're looking at these beauties with all kinds of lust...#greens #veggies #jenniecooks #chard #farmersmarket #farmtotable #swoon #vegetarian #vegan #vegetables #vegansofig #useitall
