Dani took over the planning and cooking for a Farm To Table event last month and it was AMAZING! She not only uses fresh, local products whenever she can, creates beautiful and delicious menu items, but she puts her heart and soul into every creation.

Our event still 8 months away, but I cannot say how excited I am to use Greenbluff Fresh Catering! Sabrina reached out to me here on Thumbtack, and she is so awesome! We have met twice now and I was so impressed with how much she also cared about our wedding and the little things like the theme of our wedding and how we can tie in the food. She is super responsive every time I had a question too. Overall I highly recommend! The food we sampled (Sabrina goes all out to make sure you get a little taste of everything they have to offer that peaks your interest :) was amazing too! You can definitely tell the difference between store bought and farm fresh with their food. I will update my review after event!

Went to a party hosted by the catering company. It was a blast! The dogs were way tasty and I tried very hard to get the secret sauce recipe...but never got it. I will buy another Alpha Dog to continue my research.

      I met Jen for coffee and explained what I was looking for with regards to food for my wedding and she assured me we could do it anyway we wanted to. We chose a theme and let her run with it. The day of my wedding I couldn't have been more thrilled when I saw how beautifully she had displayed each dish and how accommodating it was for various types of people with dietary needs. Everything I ate was delicious. Aside from that I never felt I had to worry about how things would turn out or whether we would have enough for our guests. I would recommend Jen to anyone looking for a caterer for any type of event!

If you want great food and someone that will work with you Brian is the right guy.

      Sicily in Spokane catered our daughter's wedding this summer and they did a fantastic job! Chef Roberto helped us plan the perfect meal from appetizers to the main course. The Mediterranean menu was authentic, delicious, and unique. No other caterer was able to fulfill our requests. The day of the wedding they were on time and worked efficiently and our guests loved Roberto's gregarious personality. We highly recommend Sicily in Spokane.

      About

      You are what you eat. How many times have we all heard that line? We all know we need to be eating better food. Freshly prepared proteins and vegetables are full of fiber and healthy fats. But that takes planning and organization, and it's way easier to grab fast food or a frozen meal. Do you want to change your patterns but don't want to do the work? Hire me, and I'll do it for you. I will shop for groceries, do the prep, cooking and portioning, so all you have to do is grab, reheat and go. You get to feel good about your choices and your body. I offer personal chef services and catering. References are available. I have been serving the Spokane to Coeur d'Alene area since 2003. I am a former restaurant owner/manager and a culinary school graduate.

      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.

      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.

      How much should catering cost for a wedding?

      The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

      • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
      • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
      • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
      • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

      How do you serve food at a wedding?

      Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

      • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
      • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
      • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
      • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
      • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
