I am new to this forum and I think it is fantastic. I am new to the business and just received an opportunity to cater my largest event ever. It is a cocktail party for 150 people for a 50th birthday party. he hostess only wants finger foods. The menu I am presenting to the hostess is as follows:
Meat and Cheese Trays
Meatballs in cranberry sauce
I have done smaller jobs before but want to ensure that I am preparing for everything I need, have the proper amounts and am charging correctly.
I have calculated what I will need for the riblets and chicken satay.
Can anyone give me some suggestions on the amounts of shrimp and meatballs?
Also and I guess most importantly since this is my first big catering opportunity how do I charge this event?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..
Thanks in advance.
