Thanksgiving caterer needed in Brookline

roloru Sep 23, 2007 07:49 PM

I am looking for someone to cook a great meal for thirty people in our home , serve, then clean up. Our space is limited so we want to be able to seat everyone and not take up room at a buffet table. Good references important....we are foodies like all of you.

    My suggestion is that you use a Personal Chef. You can go to either of these 2 websites: personalchef.com or personalchefnetwork.com and find personal chefs in your area; most of them have websites where you can check out the bios of the chefs. Not sure what they charge but I believe that it is an hourly rate plus the cost of the food, for 30 people I imagine they would also bring along some help. I am sure that you can get recs or testimonials from their satisfied customers.

      Thanks to all of you who have replied so far....know anyone who cooks well but might not be a licensed caterer and who might like to do something like this with a couple of friends?

        Many chefs will do this (and bring a busboy). Ask one from a restaurant that you like but is not too high profile. Just keep in mind that it will be expensive.

          might consider a "two step" process - get the catered meal (try New England Soup Factory, Virginia's, or maybe Zaftigs in Brookline) and see if you can get someone to come in and serve and clean.

            The Fireplace does catering now, too
