Why should I choose Amy's Culinary Adventures to cater my event?
We're known for a winning combination of delicious food, beautiful presentation, and truly professional service staff.
This reputation is based on consistently satisfying clients and their guests as well as our experience and valued relationships with event planners and venue owners and managers who appreciate our professionalism, work ethic, and congenial spirit.
The quality of our food is directly linked to the quality of the ingredients we use. Everything that Amy's Culinary Adventures serves is made by us, with the best ingredients we can source.
In addition to the wonderful food and attentive service that we will provide on the day of your event, you will have unlimited access to your event manager in the days and months, leading up to your event. They will help organize and coordinate your rentals, suggest other experienced event professionals, visit your event location, coordinate with your planner, and create a methodical service scenario that will ensure our team will be in sync and organized from set-up to breakdown.
We understand the importance of each event and provide each of our clients with the same level of service, with the goal of relieving as much stress as we possibly can in the planning process, and delivering a carefree and flawless catering performance, so you and your guests can enjoy your event to its utmost.
What is the average price range for a catered meal
There are many different factors that can affect the price of your meal. The major factors are menu selections, guest count, the length of the event, the distance of the location from Los Angeles, and style of service, for example, buffet or plated. By providing us with a few details about your event, we can discuss options relative to your budget and give you a much better idea of the catering cost for your specific event.
What types of Payment do you accept?
We accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard and American Express
Can we do a tasting?
We would be happy to have you try our food. Click here for a link to our tasting policy.
How long have you been in business?
We've been catering in Los Angeles since 2005.
How far in advance should I book for my event?
It is never too soon to reserve your date. Many venues are booked over 1 year in advance, so it’s not unusual to have the caterer booked at that time as well. Dates in the height of the wedding season (May-September) should be booked 6 months in advance. However, do not hesitate to call about availability at any time; we can often accommodate last minute requests!
Can you provide rentals for my event?
We are happy to arrange for rentals for your event including coordinating delivery and set up, in order to ensure that you will have everything you need to make your event a success. A large majority of our events take place at locations where almost everything must be brought in, and we know exactly what will be needed for any type of event. Take advantage of our expertise and allow us to take the often confusing task of rentals off your plate.
Can you prepare custom menus for an event, and can you also accommodate special dietary requests or needs for guests, such as gluten free, vegan, vegetarian?
All the menus we do are custom. We don't have set menus. One of our signature features is that we give our clients lots of choices! Because everything is made by our chefs in-house, it is very simple to alter a dish to suit your tastes or come up with something totally new.
Our chef and managers are well-versed with special dietary needs such as gluten-free, and we can certainly provide delicious vegan or vegetarian options.
Can you provide alcohol, wine and beer and bartenders?
Our license & Insurance permits us to serve, but not sell alcohol. We can provide you with a personalized beverage shopping list so you know just how much to buy. There is no corkage fee for the beverages you provide.
We are able to provide you with our professionally trained and certified bartenders. They will not only ensure everyone has a great time but will also uphold responsible alcohol-serving practices to keep your guests safe.
Can you recommend other vendors for our event?
We would be so pleased to suggest one of the many wonderful event professionals in the area to work with you. We have a great stable of photographers, rental companies, planners, musicians, florists & bakers.
