Jon orchestrated a fantastic evening for some close friends on a recent trip to Arizona. He quickly responded to my ( late) request for a private chef for our trip to Scottsdale. He presented a comprehensive proposal with fair pricing. He arrived promptly and began setup. That's where the wonderful experience blossomed. We had delightful, tasty appetizers, served with beautifully chosen wine pairing. The meal did not disappoint. We were further treated to a delightful salad with locally sourced ingredients, followed by perfectly cooked filet mignon. The molten chocolate cake was phenomenal. Again, all courses were paired expertly with wine and served by Jon with impeccable timing. This dinner became the highlight of our trip. I can't wait to use them again for a cocktail party. Recommend without reservation. Of note, Jon brought additional serving dishes that complemented our some what meagre selection at the house, elevating the meal. Kudos and many thanks!

My parents told me it was a wonderful experience, they enjoyed the food Doreeda made and served! And because it was a surprise, my dad had been guessing all day as to what it was, made it super fun! Thank you Chef Doreeda for a job well done!

We had a lovely Christmas Party catered by Unique Luxury Catering. Chef Steve helped me pick out the perfect menu for our venue. Carol Ann coordinated everything: chairs, tables, linens, food, ice. Everything was included which made my job easier. Chef Alice prepared items which satisfied us all, including those that were vegetarians. The service was incredible. They were friendly and took care of all of our needs. Great job! Rose

Wow! Wow! Wow! Sasha went above and beyond. She was very easy to work with, accommodating, and just the right price too. She helped me to plan a surprise cake decorating birthday party for my Mom. I'm up in Wyoming and she was able to even bring some extra supplies (wrapped cute too) as a gift. It made the day very very special. I know I will hearing about this day for years!! And seriously, what a fun treat to have a personal chef in your home?!

I contacted AZ Caterer about our Employee Appreciation Luncheon for our department in a large City. Being a gov't agency, our budget is limited, however Chef Vic worked with me to make our catering wishes come true. We have done bbq food for the past 8 yrs or so through a restaurant, but decided to go with Thanksgiving style meal this year. I was a little nervous, as we were expecting over 160 employees, but Chef Vic did NOT disappoint. Not only have I had employees just rave about the food, but the service and the attentiveness of Vic and his staff as well. The food and setup was beautiful and delicious! Everything appeared and tasted to be completely from scratch and we could have not been happier. The City will definitely be using AZ Caterer in the future, and I am sure many of my staff will reach out for personal events as well!

We had a great 87th birthday party for my mother-in-law in out rental home in Scottsdale with Anna as our personal chef. She was very easy to communicate with, arrived exactly on time, her dinner was fabulous and she didn't stress out when the ovens were not working properly. Anna stayed extra time since the dinner took longer to cook and she was a great sport. I highly recommend her.

I work for Home Depot, and my store was hosting an event which required a caterer. We hired Jamburritos to cater our event from their food truck--something very new and different for our store. Gregg and Chef Michael were excellent to work with and made it so very easy to hand the job over to them and let them do their thing. The food was delicious and served quick and hot. I was please as can be with Jamburritos, and look forward to working with them in the future!

Sarah has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to preparing and delivering a nutritious meal that will leave you fueled for whatever comes next in your day. During the 2 years that Sarah was a chef for me, one thing always caught my attention, everyday she was constantly learning in one way or another. Ted talks, E Books, YouTube and sometimes I even saw her use real books, hard to believe in the current society/generation we live in !!!! Whatever you needs she will create a fantastic dish that is completely custom for you and your guests right down to the correct China and cutlery to use while eating it !! Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions. Keep up the good work Sarah!! Myles@fitnessandlifestyleguru.co.uk

Even though we had a family member handling our food, the professionalism exhibited by Greg and his staff at the beginning of our wedding plans, and throughout the process, warrants me to recommend this business to anyone who are in need of their services. I am confident that since their busiest ethics are superior, I am confident their product/s are the same. PH

I contacted Chef Chat Now because I needed help with a dish concerning Scallops and Kale. Chef Barry gave me directions over the phone in regards to the items I would need to make a dish and arranged for a time to come to my home to help me prepare the meal. I learned information concerning food safety, how to chop Kale and how to saute the Scallops that I would not have been able to learn without direction. If you have any fine dining concerns or need help to finalize a meal, or if you just want general information, I highly recommend contacting Chef Barry at Chef Chat Now.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

      Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

      Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

      How much should catering cost per person?

      Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

      • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
      • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
      • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
      • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
      • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
