My goal, in addition to cooking scratch made meals, handpicked from my menu, is to be as flexible as possible to create a fantastic experience customized for your group. I brainstorm to create unique seasonal dishes for each menu and hey, if you feel like having 5 different appetizers for dinner instead of a 4-course meal, let’s do it! That’s why I decided that doing an hourly labor based on number of people in your party plus groceries and some gratuity of your choosing at the end of the meal would be the simplest way to do my pricing : )
What it includes: Shopping, prep/cooking all in-house, serving, cleanup!
Hourly rate per number of people:
1-4 pp: $55/hr
5-8 pp: $65/hr
9-12 pp: $85/hr
13-16 pp: $105/hr
17-20 pp: $125/hr
21-24 pp: $145/hr
25-28 pp: $165/hr
29-32 pp: $185/hr
I do larger groups, my maximum so far has been 60 people- whew! Please email me 🙂 As for labor- I will generally round up or down to the nearest hour/half hour.
Kids: I can make a separate – usually from scratch meal, for the kiddos. For the headcount they are counted as a person if they are eating. It evens out since the kids meals are typically more simple and take less time than the adult meals 🙂
How to pay: I always take an up front deposit so that we are both confirmed for the date of your choosing : ) The remainder is collected in person after the meal service, unless multiple meals are scheduled, in that case I collect after the last meal.
In person I can accept cash, check, venmo and cash apps. In addition, all credit cards are accepted with 3.5% processing added.
