*** = MOST POPULAR ITEM IN EACH CATEGORY

How Much Food Should You Order?

When serving finger foods exclusively during dinner time, it’s typically expected that each guest should have access to 10 to 15 bites of food. A practical guideline is to provide approximately one dozen bites per person to meet this expectation. On the other hand, if finger foods are offered before a meal, 3 to 5 bites per guest are usually sufficient. In this case, a good rule of thumb is to order one dozen bites for every three guests, ensuring everyone enjoys a taste without excessive leftovers.

When You Book Me

photo by Julia Burke Photography

As part of my Private Chef Service, I provide everything needed except glassware, plates, cutlery, and the kitchen. I like to say that you provide the kitchen and I provide the rest. You may be wondering exactly what I provide. Here is a checklist that I use to ensure that I have everything I need.

I may not bring everything on the list, but if I need it, I will have it. On top of that, it is always my goal to leave your kitchen cleaner than I found it. Yes, I even do the dishes and clean your kitchen after dinner.
