Here are some frequently asked questions about Rochelle Myers Catering. What makes Rochelle Myers Catering different from other caterers? Rochelle is not interested in providing a cookie-cutter, industrial experience, but instead wants to ensure that your event is unique and special. Each event should reflect the host's distinctive taste, to present a personal touch that your guests will be talking about for years to come. While we have some sample menu ideas to help inspire you, Rochelle never simply repeats menus. She will work with you to craft a personal menu, an original experience, and long-lasting memories. This limits the number of events that Rochelle can schedule. However, Rochelle is not interested in being the largest caterer in the area; simply the best. And we believe that her reviews here, on Yelp and on Google demonstrate this commitment to quality. Why is Rochelle committed to sustainable, organic, local food and agriculture? Rochelle has been inspired by the local food movement, promoted by luminaries like Michael Pollan in such books as The Omnivore's Dilemma. She spends much time researching and writing about such issues in the Frederick News-Post. Local food takes less energy to transport, is often fresher and healthier than industrial-produced food, and contributes to the overall healthy economy environment of the local region. Rochelle wants to promote this widely, and uses local and organic ingredients whenever possible in her cooking. How is Rochelle personally involved in every event? Rochelle is the Executive Chef. Though she has a large staff, Rochelle supervises all of the preparations for each event, personally oversees all of the food, and makes sure that every meal gets her attention. She also handles the contracts and tastings, because that's the only way she can guarantee that she can provide exactly what you're looking for. Then she'll work with her staff to carefully prepare and present the food according to your specifications. What affects the price of my event?
The number one question we get is, "How much does it cost?" Many things affect the cost, and that's why we're unable to put prices online. Most people only hire a caterer a few times in their lives, so we want to take some of the mystery out of hiring a caterer. When you request a contract from us, most parts of the contract have their own line item, including every food course. That way you know precisely what everything costs, and we can work together to meet your budget.
There are three major factors that affect the price of an event. THE FOOD * The type of food desired; Rochelle creates a new menu for every event, we don't provide price lists online * Plated meal or buffet * Number of people in attendance THE SERVICE * Location, especially if food should be provided in multiple places *A bar and bartenders * Number of hours of service TABLES, CHAIRS, LINENS, CHINA, FLATWARE AND GLASSWARE * Number of tables, chairs, and linens needed * Type of china, glass and flatware needed (disposable, fine china, Bambu, or other options)
This is why it is difficult to generalize prices without knowing the specifics of your event. Using local, sustainable and organic food, handcrafted from scratch and customized for your event, costs a litle more than using mass-produced food and a standardized menu. But ou can be assured that Rochelle will work with you personally to make sure that you stay within your budget.
What size events does Rochelle cater? Rochelle's kitchen and staff can handle any size event, up to 750. She has catered in homes, vineyards, churches, meeting halls and in the middle of a field with no running water or electricity. Whatever your situation, Rochelle can accommodate it.
