  • Best of '15

    Kim Bolton

    (10 reviews)

    I have four on call bartenders, all TABC licensed and available with a weeks notice. We abide by all TABC rules, we do not serve minors-at all. We set the bar area and break it down at the end of the event or when all alcohol is gone. We have a bar back table, Wine opener, beer opener, shaker tins,trash can, trash bags, fruit caddy, straw and napkin caddy, and a portable bar front available to use as part of our set up fee. We charge a flat fee of $15 per hour and tips are appreciated. We have mason jars with our bartenders name on them for tip jars (see photos) but will not display them if that is the hosts wish. We wear black to all functions in weather/venue appropriate clothing. Outdoors events we wear a black t-shirt, black apron and shorts, indoors we wear a black button front shirt, black apron and black slacks. I love that my on call bartenders are my daughters friends who need to earn some extra college cash to help make ends meet during the year. They are all well educated, faith and family orientated and great manners. They are just as much my children as my actual children.

  • Savor Chef Services

    (23 reviews)

    About I specialize in catering small events from buffet to individual plating. You can take the stress out of your event with help from Savor Chef. I will help you develop a menu for your event. There are so many cuisines to choose from! Among my clients' favorites are Italian, Asian-Fusion, Southern Comfort, Caribbean, and Mediterranean. This includes menus for vegetarians. I also feature a Small Plates Service, a tribute to the traditions of Spanish Tapas and Basque Pinchos, but expanding beyond those two traditions to include Bites influenced by among others, Southern, American Comfort Food, Asian, Mediterranean and Latin traditions. I also provide cooking classes, specializing in every area from knife skills, to the creation of soups and sauces, to roasting and braising, how to cook clean and healthy, and how to spring board recipes into several different meals. It is especially helpful for today's busy people. Sessions are held in the client's home so that we can utilize the tools that are available and so that the client will be in comfortable, familiar surroundings. Food has always been important in my life. From cooking for my family to working with catering services in San Francisco and here in Austin. It is the most satisfying experience to create food for clients that fulfills their needs and desires. Food is what brings people together. It's what sustains each of us, so it's important to me to make it delicious and satisfying.
