Tom is a talented, enthusiastic chef with a wide variety of ethnic and regional specialties. Tom has cooked in our home on a number of occasions, always to our complete satisfaction. We love his smoked meats and Gai chicken, but our hands-down favorite is his Mexican menu -- best guacamole we've ever eaten. He always chooses fresh, high quality ingredients and will cater to any of our dietary requests, be they paleo, organic, vegan, gluten-free -- he can do it. He does a terrific job with large groups. (Would you believe he catered a women's rugby team dinner in our home? It's true.) Aside from his skills as a chef, Tom is a fun, interesting person to know. Five stars!

Rob cooked an amazing and special Father's Day dinner for 6 people at my house. He came up with an elegant menu (i just send that we wanted tilapia to be the main course) and he also was very accommodating in modifying the menu because we had one very picky eater and another who was gluten free. We would definitely work with Rob again - everyone keeps talking about how great the experience was. The food was delicious and the presentation was also terrific. Rob is also very personable and professional.

We hired R.A.W. for our last minute Christmas party, and I'm so glad we did! We had several dietary restrictions, (organic, gluten free & sugar free), and Rowland was still able to give us many wonderful options to choose from. They were on time, and the food was delicious! Also, their prices were very reasonable! Next time I need a catered meal, I won't have to think twice about who I will hire! Thank you, R.A.W.!

Shane was great to work with and was very responsive when I had questions. He even altered his sides to be veggie friendly, provided gluten free pies for dessert and even made bbq tofu for our non-meat eaters. My teammates (150+) ate every bit of food put out for them at our employee picnic/season wrap party and raved that it was delicious. I would hire BBQ Kings again in a heart beat and recommend them to anyone looking for great BBQ variety!

My wife and I hired Tussaint to cater our wedding at The Loft Music Venue on October 16, 2016. Long story short, we chose the right caterer. After I approached Tussaint to cater the wedding, he came up with a menu that was fantastic AND fit my dietary restrictions (gluten and dairy free.). If he can do this with my diet, I'm sure he can do wonders with other situations too. He ended up cooking prime rib beef with an au jus, chicken in a herbed tomato sauce, roasted potatoes, salad, and also fruit kabobs and pinwheel wraps for a social hour. My wife's Grandpa has decided that it was the best prime rib he's ever had, and several guests (including the manager of a popular local restaurant) said that they were blown away by the roasted potatoes. All in all, the quality of the food, combined with the professional presentation made it a success. If you have the chance to hire Tussaint, I would encourage you to do so, especially now. Because once his reputation grows in the Springs, I imagine he will be pretty booked up with satisfied customers

About

I have a lot of experience cooking for clients with food allergies. My meals are organic and gluten free. How My Business Works I freshly prepare your meals the day of or night before. The meals are packaged in microwave-safe containers, so all you have to do is reheat and eat! I'm very open minded and willing to work with you if you have a set budget.

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.

Do you tip a wedding caterer?

Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

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.

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.

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.
