I am Jan Dunbar (Janice Romney Dunbar: Mrs. C.W. Dunbar) I've known Tom Letts in various capacities, particularly that of a friend as he has had an interesting career, crossing paths with our lives and with our interests. Tom is a Chef-At-Heart. Tom never heard the term, "Fast Food." without coming up with an alternative that was twice as nutritious, twice as interesting, and twice as much fun. Not many amateur chefs I know would pack up his favorite pot, favorite knives, and detour into organic food stores where his lively imagination could innovate a recipe to fit something fresh and exciting, promising to make it through his kitchen to come out surprising and delicious. At the same time, Tom is a patient innovator who can take something like a mushroom of unknown flavor, doing small maneuvers between sink and stove, coming up with something simmered and slow-savored to just the "different" kind of sauce. Tom is a fearless shopper, buying things that are unusual, sometimes exotic, sometimes experimental and handsome on the plate. and nothing is too much trouble. I've lived next door to Tom from time to time. The sounds and scents of Tom-in-the-kitchen are an experience of joy and excitement. You should try it!

Alex Sutterfield is truly amazing at what he does! He was our private chef and we miss him dearly! He cooked anything and everything we wanted and even came up with some amazing dishes we never would have thought of that have become favorites of ours. Besides being a great chef he is such a kind person who not only cares about what he does, but who he does it for. As much as I’d love to have him back with us, I hope that others get to know and love him AND his delicious food as much as we do!

I have worked with Chef Scarlett on several occasions over the last 10 years. The quality of her efforts have been nothing short of outstanding. I even got her to cater my wedding. She is one of those rare individuals that can completely understand what you are intending to communicate that then deliver it literally on a silver platter. Her recognition of the differences between taste and TASTE is without equal. I cannot overstate how completely I have been satisfied with her work (from breakfast to midnight snacks I might add).

Chef Tussaint did an excellent job catering for my friend's wedding. My friend, Marissa, wanted her wedding to have a southern style, comfortable, but delicious food selection. Marissa's mom wanted some of her home recipes to be involved in the wedding, too. Chef Tussaint was more than willing to put these recipes to use! And boy did he ever. The food came out hot, fresh, tender, juicy, and so very mouth watering. I could go on and on about how great a job Chef Tussaint did, but point blank, I recommend everyone use him. Not only was Chef Tussaint so agreeable with all the food options that were being thrown at him, but his execution was top notch.

Lea stepped in smoothly and began work so we could concentrate on our family time without stress! She worked with us in advance to accommodate a vegetarian and other food preferences. The meal was delicious and relaxed and all had a wonderful time. The stress taken off the primary cook - mom- of the family was especially appreciated!

    VeVe has been providing us chef services for 4 months now and my wife and I can both say that we've thoroughly enjoyed every meal he's made. From fresh and inspired salads to made to order pizzas to great soups and entrees, he's done an incredible job. There literally hasn't been anything he's made for us that we have not enjoyed. Neither the wife nor I cook much anymore and having VeVe's services to provide healthy and delicious options every week, with leftovers and other staged meals ready to cook, has greatly improved our dietary intake. Partially due to the healthier food, the wife and I have lost a combined total of about 25 pounds since VeVe has started cooking for us. We totally love it!

    About

    I provide a personal one on one experience. My passion for the culinary industry shows through my food. I have had experience in the Prostart program teaching high school students basic skills and teaching how to execute final products for competitions. I am a personal chef for families in which I prepare exquisite meals on a daily basis. I was a caterer with my mother from the age of 12. My culinary background consists of two separate colleges in the culinary arts, and was a Nutrition assistant at a Hospital. I handled patients diets and had one on one contact with patient needs. I have great experience in all cuisines which include American Regional, gourmet Asian, Latin, and Classical European.

    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.
