Menu Planning & Style of Service
We believe your wedding or event menu should be as unique as you and your guests. We love learning your story, food preference, and what type of experience you want to create. We can provided to assist you in your planning process. Most of the the time, however, we custom write your menu based on your preferences.
PKC can accommodate full service multi-course plated meals, family style and buffet services as well as food stations and standing receptions and cocktail parties.
Considering a more rustic venue and concerned about the kitchen? PKC is familiar and comfortable catering with limited kitchen facilities and at outdoor venues. Additional staffing and equipment may be required and charges will vary based on available kitchen facilities.
Holding Your Date & Timeline
Once we have received your inquiry, we will be in touch within two business days to confirm the date or advise you if there are holds in place. If the date is available, we’d love to schedule a free get acquainted call with you to discuss your budget and vision.
Note on Weddings: In many cases, we are contacted a year or more in advance for wedding date reservations. In this event, we will provide a preliminary estimate based on your menu profile and service requirements. In all cases we will start with an initial proposal based upon our initial consultation with you.
If this meets with your approval, we will put together a formal quote and contract outlining our services and the details surrounding your event. A signed contract and 50% deposit are due within one week of receipt of the contract. Once we have received the signed contract and deposit, your date is reserved. Three months prior to your event date, we will be in touch with you to finalize the menu modifications, and re-confirm the rentals arrangement and confirm bar service as necessary.
We are pleased to offer tastings based upon your menu choices. Bear in mind though that we custom write most of our menus, so there may be some items that are impractical to prepare for 2-4 people (such as hors d'oeuvres and grazing stations, live action stations). A $100 tasting fee per person is charged prior to the tasting. This fee will be applied to the deposit upon booking (for groups of 100 or more). Tastings are not guarenteed and depend upon availability
We work with a variety of rental and event companies based on the venue and the client's style. PKC DOES NOT CHARGE for coordination and handling of rentals related to food and beverage service. We do not currently offer rental coordination for tents, lighting, stages, and dance floors but we will assist you in choosing your tableware linens & barware or select for you. We will ensure all rentals are accounted for and properly returned when the event is over. If a wedding planner or day of coordinator is hired for the occasion, (or you self co-ordinate) and their services include rental management, PKC will require copies of all rentals 6 weeks before the event.
Types of rentals we coordinate: Glassware, silverware, plates, linens, refrigeration, remote cooking equipment..
Alcohol & Beverage Service
PKC is not licensed to sell alcohol at this point, but we do provide qualified bar & beverage service.
We have a number of options for handling all of your bar service needs.
All of our bar services include set up and tear down of the bar, reconciling all rental barware and packing up and storing al left over alcohol and empties.
Allergies & Dietary Restrictions
Pure Kitchen specializes in customized menus that allow for dietary requirements to be met without compromising taste or quality. Whether it is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, or allergies, PKC is happy to work with you and your guests’ needs. Many of our dishes can be modified to meet certain dietary preferences - just ask!
PLEASE NOTE: Gluten Free (gf) does NOT mean it is free of all spores and trace gluten and should not be considered safe for any person with severe celiac disease. It is the client’s responsibility to communicate any special dietary needs of their guests in advance. We can not guarantee allergen-free food for those who have life-threatening allergies.
PKC must be notified by you (or your wedding planner) four weeks from your event for an updated guest count. If the guest count is 20% or more less than the number of guests planned for the proposal, it may be necessary to recalculate the menu price. The final guest count is required 14 days prior to your event. If more guests show than what you have contracted for, the balance of the guest count will be added to your invoice. For the comfort of you and your guests and to ensure no embarrassment, please make your guest count as accurate as possible.
