    My daughter's bridal shower went off without a hitch thanks to Jen and her hardworking staff!! The food was amazing and her presentation was exceptional! The burger bar was a great choice, everything was cooked to perfection and the mini quiches were a huge hit too! Thank you Jen, the smile on my daughter's face said it all and made the day complete!

    About this pro

    I put every ounce of my heart and soul into my cooking… as well as the presentation. I pride myself on feeding people delicious food and presenting it in a creative manner. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing you made somebody's event great because of the food. In my opinion, food is the focus point of any event and is the most talked about when the event is over. There is nothing worse than going to an event and saying, "the food was terrible."

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        - A 20% deposit and signed invoice is due at the time of booking. - Payment is due in full at the time of the service or a $10/day fee will apply and accrue daily. - For corporate events/accounts, if payment is not received within 30 days of service, a $10/day fee will apply and accrue daily. - After 30 days of non or late payment, your balance, along with a $25 fee, will be forwarded to collections. Once in collections, 33% of your balance will be added to cover collection costs. - All credit card payments will be charged an additional 4% processing fee. There is no fee for payments via check. -The following one-time fee is added to every service and is included in your quote: This fee is for menu planning, shopping (usually multiple times), prep, setup and cleanup (if applicable) at your event. $100 – Parties up to 50 guests $150 – Parties of 50-75 $200 – Parties of 75-100 $250 – Parties of 100-150 $300 – Parties of 150-200
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        Speaking on the phone and getting visual of the event and how the customer would like the food presented. Headcount is usually given at this time as well as chosen menu items. We let the client know what we feel are good choices of food for the event and what we think they can do without. We also make every attempt to not have the client order too much food! This process is important because it helps make every event feel like our own.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I read, read, read... and watch the food network all day with a notebook.
