Our oven is able to be brought directly into your back yard, roof top or right outside of your event and served directly to your guests. Our pizzas are cooked at 900 degrees for about 90 seconds. Our flour and tomatoes are imported from Italy and are used to make the dough and sauce fresh for your party. We offer unlimited menu options that can be custom tailored for you and your guests! Frequently Asked Questions Do you only offer pizza? We specialize in pizza however we can also add on and supply trays of pasta, salads etc if needed! Can you supply beverages and desserts?

How big are the pizzas and how are they served? All of our pizzas are personal sized at approx 12 inches, we usually serve the full menu selection of your choice and guests can take individual slices(no limit), we then continue to make pizzas for the allotted time. When you are done making pizzas for the guests, can you provide extra “to-go pizzas” for guests coming later or to be eaten at a later time? Yes we can provide additional “to-go” pizzas prior to us leaving, that’s not a problem. My venue doesent allow wood fired ovens, do you have any other options? YES our oven runs off of either wood OR gas and the taste and product it makes is virtually identical. I want a specific pizza but I do not see it on your menu option, could u make it? Yes options are unlimited just make sure you discuss it before the event so we have all the ingredients, but there is nothing we can’t do. Please feel free to contact us for any more questions!"

"Chef Stef is YOUR Personal Chef in the Hudson Valley. He offers the culinary services you personally need. Please read below about the services offered, I offer two types of catering: drop-off catering & on-site event catering. Drop-off service benefits you because everything is presented in disposable containers for easy cleanup. On-site catering can be as simple as a small buffet to food stations and passed hors d'oeuvres, All catering is fully customized; no standardized cuisine packages. I like to discuss with the client what the actual event is, the demographic of people attending, whether it's more of a sit down or stand-up affair, etc. From there I can suggest menu items and the proper food setup that will flow with the event. Chef Stef offers weekly meal delivery as well. His Gourmet Meal Service allows you to select entrees from a menu of 20+ different dishes, and customize the sides. Soups and salads always available as well. If you have health goals or were recently prescribed a strict diet by a professional practitioner I can create a special ordering menu based on those guidelines. You can create different entrees that conform to your new culinary lifestyle. This allows you to mix it up weekly, and keep it fun and enjoyable. Hire Chef Stef as your Personal Chef. He will come to your home, and cook for you and your guest(s). Again, the menu is fully customized to your tastes and cuisine preferences. Looking to expand your culinary knowledge, or need help getting started? Hire Chef Stef as you personal culinary instructor. I come to your home (or other location) with all the foods and materials needed for that lesson. You can start with simple lessons on knife skills and easy entrees, and eventually graduate into more complex cuisines and preparations. You want to know what drives me? That look...that smile...the emotion that someone exudes in the end when they taste what they have made or see their guests happy with the food I've prepared. You cannot beat that! Or when I receive a simple note saying my catering helped them with their party, or feeding their family for the week."

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 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 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.

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.
