Frequently Asked Questions
Can you accommodate food allergies?
We are SafeServe Allergy Certified and can accommodate a variety of food sensitivities and allergies. Because we prepare everything from scratch, we can often make simple modifications to our recipes that will meet your needs. We regularly prepare gluten-free, nut-safe, diary-free, vegetarian, and vegan dishes.
What size groups will you cook for?
Our largest event to date was for 1200 people. Most of our prices are based on groups of 30 or more. Smaller jobs will be accepted based on availability, and additional surcharges may apply.
What do your prices include?
Our advertised menu prices are per person food costs served buffet style. They do not include 6% sales tax, service fee, or delivery charges. If wait staff is required, you will be charged $25 per staff member per hour. Credit card charges will include a 3% processing fee

Where do you deliver?
To assure the highest quality of food, we try to stay within about an hour of Brighton, MI.
Do you require a deposit?
To secure your date, we require a non-refundable deposit equal to 10% of the estimate. The remaining invoice balance, based on final menu and guest count, is due upon delivery the day of your event.
Do you offer tastings?
We offer private tastings for events which exceed $2500. The tastings are $50 for 2 people and $10 each additional guest.
When do I need a final guest count?
Final guest counts and final menu selections are due 7 days before your event.
What happens if I need to cancel my event?
Cancellations within 10 days of event will be charged 25% of the total invoiced price. All other cancellations will forfeit the deposit.
What happens to the leftover food?
Our participation in Meal Connect provides us the unique opportunity to safely donate our excess food to underprivileged school-aged children around Livingston County through a partnership with Gleaners Community Food Bank. Due to our inability to monitor safe temperatures and handling practices once food is out of our possession, if you choose to take home the leftovers from your event, we cannot accept responsibility for their quality or safety.
