WHO WILL SERVE THE FOOD?
Whilst the chefs are hard at work preparing and cooking your food we kindly ask if you could choose between buffet station style of service or waiting staff service.
Buffet Style Service - You collect your food from the kitchen or buffet station.
Waiting Staff - We can arrange anything from smartly dressed waiters/waitresses to naked waiters which are an extremely popular choice at Hen & Stag Parties.
DO WE SUPPLY CUTLERY, CROCKERY & KITCHEN EQUIPMENT?
It depends on the venue and type of event. For example a dinner party/hen party in your home or hired cottage then we would use the facilities available including pots and pans, cutlery, crockery. If there is a lack of basic equipment then let us know at your earliest convenience. For larger events such as Weddings we can hire all of the above after consultation with our
clients. Each event is custom built around you!
WHEN DO THE CHEFS ARRIVE AND DO THEY CLEAN UP AFTER?
Chefs arrive between 1 - 6 hours before your event, this depends on the type of event, the menu and the amount of people in the party. The chefs will always leave the kitchen immaculate.
DO WE PROVIDE A WEDDING EVENT PACKAGE?
To keep costs down for the client we ONLY offer a small package which gives YOU the freedom to tailor your wedding how you want it.
We include a telephone consultation on receipt of the enquiry/booking form. This enables us to get to know you, your likes, dislikes and learn about how you want your big day to
taste! We will then send a quote via email. We will organise with you to meet at the venue to assess facilities and discuss requirements and FINALLY we will follow that up with a
dinner tasting at your home if you wish!
