      As it happens, I'm also in need of a new caterer, and this looks interesting to me. Which dishes off the menu would you recommend? How many dishes will satisfy 30 people?

        It was a simple luncheon with small sandwiches, fruits, veggies and salads for 50 which cost about $500 and was was enough except for the couscous which in the size my wife ordered was too much

      Zaki Kabob House in Albany, if you like Middle Eastern.

        I've used Ann's Catering several times since this thread, and I have to say that everyone has been quite pleased with them. They get recognition from me here; everyone looks forward to the food when we order Ann's.

          Friends of mine have hired and are loving the cooking of another friend who's a private chef, Linda Carucci 510-482-6462.

          She's a decorated Bay Area cooking teacher and chef and cookbook author and happy to do catering jobs, when she has an opening in her calendar.
