Pangea catered my companies holiday party and it was amazing, about 140 people! From first contact Christine was responsive, easy to work with and modified the menu for our needs. We had a great assortment of appetizers, the value and the quality of the food was superb. Everything was made fresh, presented beautifully and tasted even better. I will be calling Pangea again for our next event!

We are happy to recommend Luzette Catering and Daniel Cleary for your next event! He catered Holiday lunches at our offices and everyone was so pleased with the service and the food. Daniel was so easy to work with and helped us with the planning and the menu. He set up everything for us and it was so nice for our staff to have a hot, delicious holiday meal. Daniel came to collect everything after the event and made the job so easy for us. Thank you Daniel!

    So recently I hired Catering For All It's Worth to help me plan a Dinner Party for my husband and 4 other couples. I didn't want a formal meal, but Chef Bryan helped me plan a great Dinner Party so that everyone enjoyed it. Chef Bryan arrived that day with all the groceries, and all the pots and pans. He even brought the dish soap and sponges. He got right to work preparing the food, and the kitchen started to smell amazing! When my guests arrived, I was able to meet and greet them, without having to run into the kitchen to check on the food, this was just perfect having a Personal Chef here. The food was out of this world! Course after course kept getting better. Dessert was the best, Triple Chocolate Molten Devil's Cake! And the best part of the night, Chef Bryan finished by cleaning the kitchen and doing all the dishes. I would definitely hire him for another dinner party. This was a great success!

    Nate catered a surprise 60th birthday party we threw for my mom and it could not have been better. The food was all delicious and the service was impeccable. It was a huge benefit knowing we had someone who really knew what they were doing so we could enjoy the party. He came out to the event space, was early, set everything up and took care of all the food so well, and was so friendly and professional with all the guests. 10/10 would definitely use his services again.

    Jan was amazing right from the start! I was looking for someone to deliver food to my friend at her mother's house, who was in hospice care. Not only did Jan come up with a FRESH menu from scratch, but she also had experience working with hospice patients, and was just wonderful to my friend and her sisters with some encouraging words as well as some delicious food, enough to feed a small army! She really went the extra mile to make sure everything was just perfect for them from start to finish and was great at communicating back and forth. I highly recommend her and would definitely hire her again!

    About

    Hello and welcome to The Majestic Chef. It is nice to see that you have made your way here to The Majestic Chef. Not many people today do know what a personal chef is and in turn would never consider hiring one. By definition a personal chef is a person who works with you directly to create meals you can either have made in bulk and stored for later eating, or comes in to your home, once twice or how ever many times in a week to make your meals there for you when you get home or before you leave for work in the morning. Nowadays, a personal chef is more than just a chef who makes your day-to-day meals or provides one to two meals a week. They have evolved in to a more broader group to provide for the many nitches of chefs and provide for the different groups whether it is a need to learn how to cook or to provide a wide range of catering and culinary services for their customers. What we do here at The Majestic Chef PCS is that we actually offer a wide variety of services, specializing in Halal home cooking and catering with an artistic flare as well athletic-based food planning. Ranging from in-home day to day meals, full-service catering, to health-related dietary needs such as allergies, sensitivities and religious requirements.

    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.

    Do you tip a wedding caterer?

    Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

    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.

    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.
