We promise to provide our food and services with great heart, passion and consciousness. Our personalized catering package for your special event will keep your budget in mind, satisfy everyone’s’ palate and deliver the realized event as planned. We strive to create a joyful work environment that supports the health and happiness of our clients, our community and our staff. We are dedicated to protecting and restoring our environment. We procure consciously and sustainably. We are life long learners in the art of hospitality and truly thrive when being of service.

Payments

Payment is requested in the form of a check or if you prefer, cash. We request a hearty deposit when you book. One month before the event, an additional 50% is due. The balance is payable on the day of the event. Any overtime will be billed after the event unless other arrangements have been made. Credit card fees make us cranky and impact our bottom line in a bad way. Thanks for understanding, and for finding your checkbook.

Beverages

Thirsty? Let’s talk about the most sustainable ways to quench your thirst. Lemonades, elixirs, teas and potions are at our fingertips!

A La Carte

Most of our items can be purchased a la carte without a minimum, during regular business hours. Call for prices and availability.

Special Diets

We recommend appealing to the majority of the guests and not tailoring the menu to a restricted few. We will gladly make a special plate for anyone with limitations.

We make all kinds of food at Jennie Cooks and want everyone to eat well. Call for suggestions.


Jennie Cook

Making great parties is part of Jennie’s genetic makeup. You can read all about it in her cookbook, "Who Wants Seconds?"
