Tip of the Month
What to ask when looking for a caterer?

Catering a wedding is a more demanding task than serving at a restaurant.  Once you decide having your wedding catered, you need to look for an experienced caterer with good reputation and strong personal references.  The following questions may be the right start when interviewing your caterer:

1. What is your menu and price range?  Usually, you can create your own combination within their selections.  Ask if there is a difference in price if you book on weekdays or Sunday.
2. Ratio of servers to guests. This is important if you have a rather large wedding.  Of course, the more servers there are, the more you have to pay anyway.
3. Lazy susan. Essential for Chinese banquet.  Some caterers provide them for free.
4. Renting plates, silverware, glass? Most caterers provide basic style of dishes, and you pay for rental if you want specialty dishes.
5. Do your servers set up napkins and favors? Catering waiters usually only the table with plates, glass, paper napkin, etc. You may need to designate one person to set up your favors if it's not covered.
6. Any kitchen set up fee? 
7. Do you cook on site or off site and reheat at the premise? 
8. How long does it take to serve the whole 10 courses? 
9. Any particular dishes that are popular with a crowd of mainly Americanized Asians plus caucasians?  For example, eating steamed whole fish under dimmed lights in a ball room may be a difficult task for most caucasians since the fish is not deboned
10. Do you clean up after the wedding?  Most caterers clean up things on the table only, not on the ground. 
11. Cancellation policy? 
12. Do you have vegetarian food, and vendor's meal?
