Chef Engagement

Food & Beverage Stations

Stations are a great way to emphasize the social aspect of an event, they are fun to customize and allow you to tell a story with your event – moving guests throughout an event space with different experiences.

Butler Service

From delicious hors d’oeuvres to bite-sized pieces of culinary art, tray-passed service creates the unexpected delight that keeps conversations flowing. This is a great way to welcome guests to an evening of dining and entertainment or to thank them for attending with a sweet send-off.

Roaming Cart Service

Anything from a roaming artisanal water cart to a roaming charcuterie board—this is a great way for stationary guests to enjoy food or beverage service without leaving their conversation. This is a super unique catering style that many haven’t seen before!
