How It Works
First, Let's Talk
Let us know what the culinary vision is for your event. What foods do you love and crave? What type of service are you after? The fun begins with a conversation.
Menu creation and quote
Based on your preferences, we'll create a personalized menu. We can accommodate a variety of diets including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, low-glycemic and Paleo. Since each event is unique, we'll provide a quote once we have your details. Prices vary depending on menu and service.
The best food begins with the best ingredients. Our menus are crafted using seasonal fresh ingredients. We like to support local Mendocino county and regional farmers, ranchers, and artisans whenever possible (and when your budget allows). Often we’ll shop from 5-8 markets to source the best ingredients for your event.
Mise en Place
We like to be flawlessly prepared before entering your space. Since we make just about everything from scratch, our mise en place involves a lot of dicing, marinating, stock making, slow braising, smoking, etc. We’ll also bring any specialized equipment we need for your event.
At your home
Typically we'll arrive at your place a couple hours in advance to unpack and set up. Our service often includes tablescaping, florals, and beverage set-up (as quoted in your proposal). These in-home gatherings come with a lot of plates, glasses, utensils, cooking equipment, etc. to cleanup. Don’t worry, we’ll clean our staging area and leave your kitchen looking like it did when we arrived. You can expect professional, warm and friendly service from our chef and staff throughout your event
