What size groups will you cook for?

Our prices are based on groups of 50 or more.  On Saturdays during peak summer months, we enforce a 100 person minimum.  Smaller jobs will be accepted based on availability and an additional small group surcharge may apply.

Do you require a deposit?

What happens if I need to cancel my event?

All cancellations with more than 10 days advanced notice result in a forfeiture of deposit.  Cancellations within 10 days of event will be responsible for up to 100% of the total invoice.

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.
