Awesome is only word to use. Oh, and also creative, understanding, courteous, fun, delicious, inventive, charming and caring. Add in that he understands your goals and ideas and then makes them happen. This is beyond hiring a caterer - this is like having a great partner to plan and execute an important event who also happens to be one heck of an amazing chef. His wife is super charming too.

My wife and I hired Boris to cater our wedding at American River Resorts in Coloma, CA. We weren't planning to hire anyone as we had friends from culinary school that were going to do the job for us very cheaply, but that fell through and we had to go through a rush to hire someone and explain our unique and different menu (sweet potato bar, vegan chili, gluten free corn bread, special holiday sangria, desert bar, etc) on a somewhat limited budget with limited time. Boris was easy to work with and provided helpful solutions and was very amenable to changes but also insightful in his rebuttal when some ideas weren't feasible or could be done better given our circumstances. The day of the family was a few minutes late because of traffic on a small mountain road (a circumstance not within his or my control, lol), but they got setup quickly and had food out sooner than expected. The meal was absolutely delicious and everyone raved about both the meat based and the meatless chilis as well as the beautiful purple potatoes. SUCH GOOD FLAVOR!!!! The only complaint my wife had was that because they were late getting in, and some confusion, the sangria we asked them to make and place on the tables didn't get placed on the tables until about 30m in to the cocktail hour. Our bridesmaids had to make sure the sangria got moved from the kitchen to the dining hall. However, that's a minor issue, and overall because of the amazing flavor, quantity of food (and leftovers for a week, mmmmm), quality of production, and the efficiency of the whole team (which is a whole family operation) - we were highly satisfied with Global Gourmet. My suggestion to anyone is to be as clear and concise as possible with your directions and designate someone who is NOT the bride on the day of to do any of the logistics so that any of those minor issues won't be a problem. HIRE BORIS!

My friend recommended this business so I had Cowabunga BBQ cater my two kid's high school and college combined graduation party. I highly recommend them! They went above and beyond my expectations. It is the first time I have ever sat down at one of my parties they took care of it all from the set up and serving to the clean-up too! Their food is out of this world all my guests LOVED IT! You will not be disappointed they are a really nice family to work with. For a really great party hire Cowabunga BBQ! They are worth every penny and compared to other caters they are really reasonable.

Chris went above and beyond as the caterer for our church family event. He worked within our budget and provided lots of high quality BBQ for us. Everybody loved the food and had plenty to eat. I always recommend Chris to friends and family when considering BBQ catering.

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.

Polkadot Dinners is our favorite caterer. Rachel is one of the most professional caterers I know in the area. Her food is absolutely amazing and her presentation of her display of food just ties in with the theme of her menu which is a added plus. Definitely within anyone budget she can make it happen. Highly recommended.

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.

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.
