I can cook at your home or a venue of your choice for 2 to 40 peoples for a sit down dinner (for a larger amount of guest , an event planner would have to be involved) or for a cocktail party with pass hors-d’oeuvres for 10 to 250 people !
i can customize your menu to the season, with any request. taking in consideration allergy or any restriction when it comes down to gluten free, vegetarian, low sugar, no dairy etc
I usually provide great servers , can suggest wine if necessary , can help on rental if needed, and provide some china and glasses at no cost if small parties ! i also bring my own small kitchen equipment ;pot and pans etc …i also provide bread and french butter.
