Kim and her staff were fabulous. The food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. She was happy to include a few family recipes that turned out just as expected. Okay, the back story. Two hours before my nephews wedding that was at our house, I found out Kim had the date down for the next day. I looked at the original invoice and she was right, it was all my fault. Kim would have been within her rights to not take action. But, she was here within an hour with Chef Jesse and staff. Dinner was served a little later than planned but everyone agreed that the food was perfect and worth the wait. Kim works late most Saturday nights and then is up early on Sunday morning doing volunteer work for Aurora Warms the Night. This is the type of person I love doing business with! Thanks Kim, Chef Jesse, and crew!!

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!

Dustin provided exquisite dining for a group of 10 for 2 weeks aboard a luxury houseboat on Lake Powell, Arizona. The cuisine was nothing short of divine...matching the impact of the stunning desert landscape. From the uniqueness of the menu to the savory blend of flavors to the artistic presentation, each meal was professionally crafted by an extremely talented chef. The cleanliness and organization was impeccable. Having hired excellent chefs for our Lake Powell trip for over ten years, Dustin was awarded the TOP CHEF award by our guests who travel the globe. He is exemplary in all facets of his profession.

Nancy is life changing. I am a type A, very particular (okay, demanding) lawyer who seeks out the best in everything. I have lived in NYC, DC, and Chicago tried personal chefs for weekly meal prep in every city. I also have tried all the high end meal delivery (fresh diet, LA-based sunfresh, diet to go, etc). I can say with 100 percent certainty that Nancy's meals are healthier and more tasty than anything I have tried. If I can't lose a few pounds and get healthy with her delicious food packed beautifully in my fridge, it is all on me. Because Nancy has made it so easy to eat beatiful and healthy meals every day. She uses intersting flavors, textures, and spices. This is no "chicken breast and brocoli" dinner. I can't thank her enough for her high level of service and better-than-restaurant quality of food. I have struggled for quite awhile to find this great support in my busy life and finally found it. Thank you Nancy.

From our first contact, I knew we had found the right fit! Sara was exceptionally helpful developing a cost effective approach and Chef Sean prepared exceptionally tasty food which he served with a friendly smile. He arrived early and even helped with last minute decorations! Clark's Custom Catering provides that personal touch and level of service that you don't find with larger commercial institutions. And their culinary creations are wonderful. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Chef Kerry came and did a private cooking lesson for 2 of us. He was happy to help with knife skills, which I specifically requested, and came prepared with handouts and meal ideas that would allow us to practice. The food we cooked was great and lasted us a whole week!

Lyndsey catered a brunch at my home for my mother's 60th birthday party. Everything was fabulous! The lox presentation looked great, she made a lovely, delicate spinach and egg white stratta and provided perfectly made mimosas and coffee station for the 50+ guests to share. I was very pleased with everything from set up to clean up.

    The FarmYard Chef's goal is to self-source as much produce from our own garden as possible to accomplish two goals. One, to delivery clients the absolute freshest produce possible, picked just before arriving at your home or venue. And two, save clients money on the grocery bill by growing the produce ourselves, organically and locally.

    About

    Because the other Chefs that do what I do believe that people can't do what they do themselves. I believe in building a personable relation with my client that in the end they have equity in regards to when my service is done, they have not just had a nice meal and have leftovers but rather have had an enticing dinner and of course leftovers as well as learning how to prepare what they just feasted upon. My ideal is to not only provide the service but as well as interest the client into trying it themselves, encouraging them to take heed of their own diet. As a Chef what I have come to understand is a lot of people want to cook, they just keep listening to people say its to hard rather than trying on their own. So what makes me different from other personal chefs; Simply, I provide not only the service you are asking for but I encourage you to ask me for the recipe as well as I encourage you to cook with me!! Id love to rub elbows with client who's enthused. This is just the beginning.

    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.
