Sample Menus

Here are just some examples of what we provide...

Sample Menus

Menus are always discussed on an individual basis, and can be tailored to suit your particular occasion and budget. All food is homemade, with ingredients sourced from local suppliers.

The following sample menus are only examples of what I can provide, and I would be happy to discuss any other ideas if there is anything else that you would like on your menu. Every menu, just like your event, is individual, and we can match it to the kind of event you would like, tailored for your particular event.
