Chef Tony did a very good job catering my group of 123 persons on back - to - back days recently. He fulfilled our order to the letter and for working together for the first - time, things went extremely well. He and his crew were punctual and we're ready to serve my clients at the time (s) agreed upon. The only minor items that could have been better were extra condiments for the lunch bags. Otherwise, it was everything that we expected it to be. I have another client affiliated with the current group just served who will be utilizing Chef Tony for a future event in early March 2016. Chef Tony serves a wide array of clients on the Space Coast and in the Central Florida region. If you need a caterer that cares about his clients and craft,, then contact him for your next event.

Victor Gomez, Big Chef, made the evening enjoyable and fun as well as delicious. He takes pride in what he does and there was so much food we stuffed ourselves the next day too. I would highly recommend this caterer. He told me he was happy to be of service to my large family and he was very flexible and accomodating. His assistant, his wife, was an added delight. They left the place spotless.

About

Three Courses Customised Catering & Cuisine provides great tasting, healthy, affordable meals in the comfort of your own home and is a convenient answer to the question "What's for dinner tonight?" I will visit your home and interview you to determine your likes, dislikes, special dietary needs, medical conditions and allergies. Shortly after the interview, I will tour your kitchen to evaluate the amount of food your meals require and other pertinent information needed to prepare for the occasion. I will then create a menu specifically designed with your needs in mind. I also will regularly create items, so that the menu design is kept fresh and seasonal. In addition, I'll grocery shop for fresh food on the same day of your meal preparation date. I'll be bringing all of my own equipment (i.e. pots, pants, utensils, pastry items, etc.). As a private catering company, I will prepare and serve the food to you as well as package and store any leftovers with easy-to-understand reheating instructions. Your kitchen will be clean before I, the chef, depart your home. You will be enjoying the luxury of upscale dining at your own dinner table. Private chef catering services include assessments, recipe search, meal planning, grocery shopping, preparation of meals, packaging and labeling and handling instructions. If you don't see a service plan that fits your needs, I will be happy to work with you to meet your requirements for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, as well as pricing available upon request. I offer the following services: * Pantry stocking - For those who love to cook but don't have time to plan a meal and shop for groceries. This service includes menu planning, recipes and a complete shopping list and grocery shopping. You will come home to a stocked pantry and recipes just waiting for you to cook. No more running to the store for the last ingredient to make dinner. * Romantic dinners - The perfect treat for your loved one on Valentine's Day, anniversaries or birthdays and any other special occasions. I offer cooking classes in your own kitchen for adults and kids. I am available by appointments. Sometimes you just want to relax and enjoy a meal custom created just for you. There are times where you don't want to stand in line at the grocery store and sweat over a fiery stove or spend the evening washing dishes. And, I know you would not prefer your dinner to be a frozen lump in a cardboard box or being distributed through the drive-thru window. What you need is chef AlyJay's private services. I'm a passionate chef who loves to plan creative and custom menus according to your wish list. I shop for the freshest ingredients and give you more time to spend with family and friends. Email me today and find an affordable solution! Good Eating! Chef AlyJay

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.
