Cost of Catering
Groceries = Between $15.00 to $50.00 (top end) per head depending on menu chosen. (This price includes using your plates and cutlery and serving dishes and does not include the purchase of alcoholic beverages)
Chef rate = $35.00/hour (please take into consideration that this rate will be charged for shopping, preparation, cooking and clean up time*)
Server = $17.00/hour (1 server per 5 guests)
Barman = $22.00/hour (1 barman per 20 guests)
* Generally, cooking a three course standard meal for up to 6 people from start to finish, including shopping time, preparation, serving and clearing up would take 10-12 hours. Therefore approximately a total of $350.00 + groceries + alcohol + 1 server.
