We encourage you to read these FAQ’s
to help get you started and give you
some insight into how we work.

How much will my event cost? Why do you need to know my budget?
There is no “one size fits all” approach to catering and event planning. Frankly, we like it that way! Every event is unique and we pride ourselves in helping our clients make the right choices for their specific event needs. Once we understand the needs and requirements of your vision, we can provide recommendations based on your budget.

How does the planning process work?
We typically begin the planning process by having a phone call or email exchange with a client to discuss some of the basic event details - location, time, party type, guest count, menu & service needs, dietary restrictions and budget expectations. This is followed up with a preliminary proposal including applicable menus and the cost breakdown of other event services discussed (like staff and rentals to name a few).

We want to make sure we understand your expectations so we can best provide you with the most efficient industry advice and care so that you end up with the party of your dreams!

Do you have menus posted on your site? I would like to order from some online menus.
While we do have sample menus available to view online, our seasonal and local approach to food means that our menus are constantly changing. We custom-tailor our menus to meet our client’s specific needs and event scenarios.

Who is Chef Sarah Flynn?
Sarah Flynn  is the founder and fearless leader of Eathereal Kitchen. She is a college educated, classically trained and world-traveled chef, with ten years of catering industry experience.

Do you offer tastings?
Tastings are offered for large-scale, full-service events like corporate holiday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, weddings and galas. Tastings do have a cost, but if you choose to proceed with an event, 50% of the tasting fees will be removed from your final bill.  

Do you have an event minimum?
We do our best to accommodate smaller budgets for non-profit and charity organizations, but overall, our budgets start at a minimum of $1500 for an event.

How long will it take to get my proposal?
Following our initial call, we will be able to create a custom proposal for your review within seven business days.
