Appetizers & Starter Menus

When catering Los Angeles 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 $55.00, 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 when creating personal catering packages! 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 $28.00 per person, and available year round. We can always mix and match to suit your palate, the seasons and all your catering needs.

All We Do for parties

At Jennie Cooks, catering Los Angeles is our passion. 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.
