We hired The Crazy Caterer for a one time private chef experience for a 70th birthday party and they were amazing!! Tentative, responsive, and reliable. Everyone at the party was impressed and loved the personal touch and food. Great time with such short notice and the food was tasty. We are looking forward to working with Kim and Stephen again!!!

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.

We have devoured the last of Chef Barb's delicious dinners. What a treat that was!! We tried not to eat them all up at once but savour them and only use them when needed but it was hard. They were all wonderful but our favorites were the beef medallions and the shrimp dish. Mmmmmmmmmmmm. I can't thank you enough for the thoughtful, generous, and kind gift of the meals. I didn't even know that personal chefs existed--and here we have one right in Fort Collins--what a brilliant get well gift. And we so appreciated the break from fixing a meal and the clean up!

From the start of my experience with Knife and Pepper, working with Carrie was a breeze and, equally importantly, a fantastic decision for my private party. Between short notice, a change in party organization, and personalized service, she really went above and beyond to provide an incredible catering package. On the day of, she was professional, punctual, and eager to make the party a hit, and I am very glad that I went with Knife and Pepper. Finally, it bears mentioning that everyone loved the food, and the portions were very generous for the number of guests confirmed. I would absolutely recommend going with Knife and Pepper for your private party!

We're a pretty laid back firm. J Street took their time and laid out the food, which was perfect, as the party progressed. No hurry, so everyone ate what they wanted, when they wanted. It was perfect. And everyone enjoyed ordering their personal dinner from the food truck. It was the perfect way to do a private catering event, with food that we couldn't get anywhere else.

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!

Honestly, Connor was much better then expected or anticipated! Not only was he consistent and timely in responding to my emails but was on top of any and all questions I had! Very thorough and specific in terms of trying to figure out exactly what you're looking to gain from the time together. Feels very relaxed and easy going. Never a feeling of being rushed or forced and does a great job at taking the lead while still allowing you to feel like your in control. I wanted to make sure he knew what I wanted as far as, Meal Prep, Food Combination & Planning for the week ahead... What I got was all that and more; an introduction to Seasonings, Proper cooking times, Techniques, and Tools for eliminating waste and increasing efficiency ! He was very straight forward, easy to understand and relatable. Connor makes it unbelievably easy to take simple ingredients combined with a few simple spices and seasonings to bring to life a really delicious, healthy and hearty meal! I would definitely recommend anyone looking for an inexpensive High Quality chef to come share his experience and knowledge! 11/10 on rating of satisfaction!

She came in and catered for a work event we were having, and let me tell you, her food is out of this world. Even now, the Gods are preparing her a place in Valhalla, not as a guest, but as a chef. Because this food is worthy of the heroes therein to feast upon until the end of time.

Chef April puts her heart & soul into everything she makes. I have been lucky enough to try many things made by Chef Apil's loving hands, and they have all been absolutely delicious!! She creates a flavorful masterpiece in your mouth with every bite of her cooking and you can totally taste the difference in richness and flavor with all she creates. I can tell by tasting her food that she is completely passionate about what she creates and her presentation of her food is exceptional!! I would highly recommend her amazing cooking to anyone who is planning an event, party, wedding, birthday or just a special weekend treat. Chef April has skills and she knows how to use them!!

    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.
