I am an at home cook with a great passion for cooking. I've cooked for many friends and family. I got through round 1 of masterchef Canada auditions! but I do not have any culinary background. I've been asked to cater a party for 25 people for a friend of a friend. I've been reading the posts about what to charge and I've looked at the replies but most of it doesnt apply to me. Im not hiring anyone else, I don't have to do clean up, I would have to go buy the food but with the clients money, there is no insurance or rentals, I would have to prep all the food one day ahead of time, then put it all together one the day of, I do not have to serve it. I do not know how many dishes yet. I would have to drive about 20-30 KM to get to this location. As you can see I am very amateur! Any help would be great. I've catered one party before for 50 people, 8 dishes, self serve and same terms that I listed above. I definetly under charged the first time because it was my first time. Also would I charge by the hour? or per person?. I'd like to get the right advice this time.
Thank you everyone and anyone! :)
