One of my favorite ways to cook is for an intimate gathering of friends and family. If you are planning a dinner party or special occasion, I would love to collaborate with you to create a memorable event.
- My seasonal dinner party menus are comprised of three courses, and are best suited for 6-12 guests.
- During the planning process, we select and customize your unique menu from a list of delicious seasonal options.
- We can also discuss a beautiful table setting to compliment the theme of your event.
- Customized dinner party menus start at approximately $100 per person, depending on number of guests.
- On the day of your event, I take care of everything--from the shopping, to preparation, table setting, serving, and clean-up--so that you can focus on your company and having a great time.
