Hi there! 

I am an Event Coordinator for a country club in Illinois. We don't have the restaurant open, but we do private banquets and event. I have a chef that comes in for these. Although, sometimes it is hard to get a hold of him. 

I'm not just in charge of the banquets set up, i  also have to make the menu for that event and order the food.  

I have absolutely NO restaurant experience. Since working banquets here, I bus now and then and will tend bar sometimes, but that's about it. 

Does anyone have any advice to make creating menus for clients easier and low cost? 

Thank you!

Sounds like you may have to teach yourself.

Make a list of what you realize you need to learn and start researching.

The more you read the more questions you will have so add those to the list as they pop up.

It will be slow going but better than nothing.

Come back here if you don't understand or cannot figure out which would be the better solution.
