I ran across this forum the other day, and it is a fantastic resource, especially for people like myself who live in the hinterland of the culinary world!
I just finished off a small off-site catering, and I was wondering what other people would have charged for the same service.
The details are:
- venue 10 mins away, two trips each way (I don't have a van, but a dry box in a pickup. All the food could have fit in one trip, if my shelves were ready!)
- kitchen available
- tableware supplied
- buffet style
- 16 adults, and 14 children, two over 10
- Traditional Christmas dinner
-Peas and Carrots
-Fancy tossed salad
-Rolls and butter
-Apple pie with ice cream
I was responsible for setting up the buffet, breaking it down, washing all the dishes, and leaving the kitchen the way I found it.
Trying to figure out what to charge for catering, and what the market will bear is a bit of a trick!
