Dinner parties and cocktail parties:
Bijou Catering provides an intimate, in-home dining experience featuring exceptional, innovative cuisine and polished service. Entertaining at home with Bijou at the helm allows you to have the experience of fine dining without fighting for a reservation, parking hassles, deafening acoustics or feeling rushed at the end of your meal.
The distinction between Bijou and other caterers is a focus on small events. While most caterers have the attitude that bigger is better, the goal at Bijou is the opposite. For me it is about creating fantastic, unique and memorable experiences and being personally involved in each step of your event from party inception and menu creation to purchasing and cooking top-notch ingredients to ensuring that your kitchen is spotless when I leave. As the private chef for one family for over a decade I mastered the art of small parties and it was in observing how much my employers and their guests enjoyed the ease and simplicity of dining at home that the idea for Bijou Catering came to be.
Hands-On Cooking Classes:
Gather a group of friends together and have a cooking/dinner party at your home. We’ll plan the menu together, based on what you’re most interested in learning. Then, on the day of the class, everyone participates in the preparation and cooking of the meal and at the end, you and your guests sit down to indulge in the fruits of your labor. You’ll each leave with a printed collection of the recipes that we've prepared that day and I’ll even email you photos of your group in action. A gift certificate for a cooking class also makes a wonderful gift!
Gift certificates are available for dinner parties and classes.
