Hi everyone! I have a question regarding being a guest chef at a restaurant. I was offered to cook a dinner at a local organic, vegan restaurant for their community table. They can seat 16 (comfortably) to 18 people. This is my first time being a guest chef at a restaurant, and I checked out to see what they charged for previous events (they had a soft launch back in February and the official grand-opening in early March)... so they haven't had many events, but they've been a hit since February. Anyhow, I believe I'm the first guest chef there, but they had a similar event... I saw that they charged $55 for a head for an intimate cooking class/tasting--the menu was very basic with three small dishes they learned how to cook/eat and enjoy. For the dinner I can choose if I'd like to prepare a three-course or five-course meal: I come up with the menu, they provide the groceries and will assist me in the kitchen. I'm very excited! They left it up to me to come up with my rate, but I don't know how to go about this since this is my first time doing something of the sort.
I was hoping that someone could give me some tips... maybe those experienced in the pop-up restaurant business... or share their experience as a guest chef. Thank you very much!
