Appetizers & Starter Menus

When catering in Los Angeles these delightful bitefuls are either stationary or tray passed. We can do our ever popular Market Table with breads and spreads, fresh and dried fruits, local and imported cheeses, bruschetta and crostini, or petite bites depending on the size of your crowd. Stationary platters start around $79.00, 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 menu collections! Of course, we're 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 $29.00 per person, and available year round. We can always mix and match to suit your palate, the seasons and all your catering needs. The last couple of pages are pure vegan!

  • Fresh #shellingbeans?  #Heaven!  Now is the time of year to grab them at your local #farmersmarket - these were artfully grown by @2_peasinapodinc who will be at @smfms Wednesday.  Fresh is a completely different texture to dried and a must to try.  Good news?  They are freezable ❤️ #beforetheyaregone #beans .

  • #Cravings! #Empanadas are great #partyfood keeping guests #happy and on-their-feet!  We always favor two-bite #appetizers for ultimate guest satisfaction.  Not for nothin’, we’ve also found that cutting this size pastry in-half creates the #perfect filling to #crunch ratio.  #Easy to hold - easy to eat!  #whatsonyourbuffet #cocktailhour #passedappetizers .
