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!

  • Go ahead and throw that #party at home!  #Tents ‘n’ tables can take the humblest spot and transform it to #partycentral.  You get the personal touch in spades, you set the menu and no one will shoo you out if everyone lingers over coffee and dessert (or a cognac! 😉💜)

  • It's #Friday - time for a cocktail! "Henry C. Ramos invented the Ramos gin fizz in 1888 at his bar, the Imperial Cabinet Saloon on Gravier Street, New Orleans, Louisiana. It was originally called a "New Orleans fizz", and is one of the city's most famous cocktails. Before Prohibition, the drink's popularity and exceptionally long 12-minute mixing time (!) had over 20 bartenders working at the Imperial at once making nothing but the Ramos gin fizz - and still struggling to keep up with demand. During the carnival of 1915, 32 staff members were on at once, just to shake the drink. The Roosevelt Hotel group trademarked the drink name in 1935 and still makes it today." - Wikipedia, History of the Gin Fizz.

And the good news?  It BATCHES!  Extra good news?  You can make it #Vegan ❤️ The version you see here uses vegan cream and the wonderful #aquafaba instead of the traditional egg whites.  We think it is the perfect addition to your wedding, party or event bar if you are catching the #veganwave.  #whatvegansdrink #vegancatering #weddingideas #punchbowl
