Wedding and Event Catering
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing is typically dependent on the type of menu ordered, the number of people being catered for, and travel expenses. Type of service requested. I will however always try to work within my client budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1. I like make contact (in person, email or phone call) and get as much information as I can about the event I'm catering such as; What type of event is it? How many people I am catering for? Is there an oven, sink or fridge on site? Are there any dietary requirements I should be made aware in advance? What type of budget am I working with? 2. I would like to know the clients expectations. After gathering information, I will get back to them with a quotation and menu for the event. 3. Upon agreement on the menu, I'd like to confirm a time and date for the event. Two weeks before the event is last time a client can make changes to the event, including a cancelling it, without it potentially affecting the fee. 4. I dedicate a day to purchase all the ingredients (if it's a cake i need more time). I prepare the food on the day of the event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been cooking for 20 years in 4-5 star hotels. I hold an Associates on Science Degree in Culinary Arts from Le Cordon Bleu, and am just about to graduate in a Bachelors in Science in Culinary Arts and Food Service Management with Johnson and Wales University Online program .
