Outstandingly experienced chef. He came to house and gave our 11 year old granddaughter a private cooking lesson. His skills are great with adults as well as kids. We all were invited to watch and boy did we All learn! From the placing of the cutting board and knife skills to the presentation of the gourmet food they prepared together. It was hands on for both chef and granddaughter. It was a great experience for all and we have already been asked by others to pass on his information to them. He is going to be very busy, so, make arrangements now to book him for your events or for your private lesson for a loved one.

I have been to several events which Taste of the Senses catered. They all have been above and beyond my expectations. The quality and quantity of food surpasses those of other caterers at the events. His menu includes tri-tip, ceviche, and tamales, among other delicious, homemade authentic Mexican fare. Arturo and his crew go to all lengths to adjust to the event and circumstances, whether it is a wedding, a quincianera, or a fundraiser. They are friendly, hard-working, and talented, and I recommend Taste of the Senses highly.

David and Cowabunga Barbecue recently catered my wife and I's wedding for 150 people! They did a fantastic job! Many people have told us since how much they enjoyed the Mac and cheese and pulled pork and how it was the best wedding food they have ever had. David is very professional and super easy to deal with which is invaluable when you are planning a wedding and dealing with so many vendors. We used his full service package which was very reasonable for what it was and made our life very easy knowing the food was "handled" Hands down I would use cowabunga bbq again for any event or wedding. 5 stars!

Fantastic!! This is your next caterer!! Fabulous food at a price that is unbeatable. I really wanted a wedding with great and, for me, memorable food. But where could I get someone to handle my special food needs; vegan and gluten free?! Yikes. Nancy not only came through with a great menu but all the food was delicious, varied and creative. My very persnickety (food wise) vegan best friend turned to me during the reception and said, "This is the best vegan food I've ever had." And it was. Nancy had to go way our of her way to order gluten free bread for the bruschettas and no one could tell the difference from sourdough baguette. Neither could I! So, you're not a vegan? Then order the grilled peaches - mine came with a vegan cream but yours could be the real deal. Everyone loved it. And a fantastic side or main dish: Grilled Eggplant dipped in Chile Oil with Kabocha Squash and Scarlet Runner Beans tossed in Black Bean Sauce. Nancy's so good that the same aforementioned friend just hired her for her wedding.

We hired Mimi to cater out daughter's Bat Mitzvah. But what Mimi did was so above and beyond just catering. Mimi's food and presentation of food was delicious and beautiful. But in addition, she turned the party space into a gorgeously decorated space beyond the dreams of our daughter. Mimi was determined to make it the most magical event for our daughter and listened very carefully to all our daughter's ideas. We really couldn't believe Mimi's magic! She has the highest work ethic and delivers more than 100%! Great team of people backing her up as well. It was the best day of our daughter's life. Thank you mimi!

The People's Kitchen is very well diversed in the food industry. Everything they made you could taste was made from scratch and with love. Some people working in this industry just do it for the love of money. With The Peoples Kitchen is the opposite they make the food for the love of cooking and pleasing the guests.

I can smell Magpie Productions chicken wings right now! MMMM good! And those roasted garlic crab and shrimp scampi dishes are the BEST! I can’t forget her amazing pasta dishes they are always filled with the right ingredients. And, what I appreciate most about Magpie Productions is her variety of dishes that range from Southern to gourmet. I would highly recommend Magpie Productions catering to anyone who is looking for tasty food that will delight the palate. And by the way, give her a party theme and she’s run with it! Bon appetite Stephanie T.

The presentation was spectacular, the food was amazing and the guests were very impressed. Several of my clients have since contacted me about the catering and I'm happy to refer them to YBS.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you find a good caterer?

      Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

      If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

      How much does wedding catering cost per person?

      Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

      What should you look for in a caterer?

      A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

      • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
      • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
      • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
      • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
      • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
      • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.

      How much should catering cost for a wedding?

      The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

      • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
      • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
      • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
      • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

      How do you serve food at a wedding?

      Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

      • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
      • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
      • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
      • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
      • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
