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!

  • We served #gazpacho (in #shotglasses!) at a lovely #outdoorwedding last weekend.  For sure - it was a perfect antidote to the 90° heat but it may also just be a perfect #powerfood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now that it's #tomatoseason in SoCal...here's five reasons to put it on your #musteat list... * #1  It's full of #tomatoes (duh!) that are full of the powerful anti-oxidant #lycopene. * #2 Those same tomatoes also pack a #vitaminC punch to ward off summer colds. * #3 Replete with chopped up raw #veggies like peppers and cucumbers...it can be hydrating (Yeah!) * #4 Pretty much all the basic ingredients, Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, olive oil and garlic are shown to fight inflammation. (Big plus!)
