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!

  • OK… Last one… But, the photographer shared some of this couples adorable history❤️ how cute are they??!! #Repost @bkmphotography.la

Vanessa and Corey were married yesterday @theyorkmanor in a very very Highland Park wedding. They had their first look @thehermosillo, where they went on their first date almost exactly 4 years ago. At the time, Corey was enlisted in the military and waiting for leave. What was supposed to be "just for fun" turned into a strong, resilient relationship. And that's the crazy beautiful way life works.

  • Last Saturday a #beautiful couple was married and we were so #happy to have helped!  As we caught this snap of the #feasting crowd - a gorgeous shot from an epic #wimwenders film was watching over them.  So appropriate, don't you think? "There's no greater story than ours, that of man and woman. It will be a story of giants... invisible... transposable... a story of new ancestors." - "Wings of Desire"

Congrats to Anika and Sean!  And, to @carlyraeweddings for creating a beautiful place for their #lovelight to shine!  #weddingwednesday .

  • Hey #LosAngeles - We were early to the wonders of #plantbased and #vegan food ... try 1991!?! Maybe not the first but an original for sure.  We’ve been doing lots of veggie-only events lately. So, we decided to collect just a few #veggiecentric pics for you to enjoy (gotta practice those Ripl skills!). If you’re considering adding some #veggielove to your next event...link in the bio!  Let’s do some menu exploring together - ❤️
