5 Reasons to Hire Primal Alchemy for Your Nextl Event!

Sure, you can make the food, purchase the supplies and set up…

but why do all the leg-work when you really want to be enjoying the party with all of your guests?!

1. Saves Time

You will save hours of your own time because you won’t have to plan the meal, go shopping, prepare, cook and serve the food, or clean up. Primal Alchemy will work on all of these things while you focus on the other important aspects of your event.

2. Experience In Planning  Menus

We create and prepare menus every day. We know which foods best complement one another, as well as which drinks pair best with the foods on the menu. Whether it’s Indian, American, Thai, or Mediterranienc, we are well versed in which menus work best for the type of event you are planning, and can provide appropriate recommendations.

We realize the importance of providing safe options for guests with special dietary restrictions!

3. Attention to Detail

A lot of detail goes into planning an event and it’s not easy to keep track of everything from serving utensils to timeline execution.

Whatever it is, Primal ALchemy  will remember all the little things one is likely to forget. It’s often the tiny details that come together to make a great event – so leave it up to the professionals to take care of them. We have the skills, experience, and patience to make your vision a reality!

4. Set Up Before & Clean Up After

This is probably one of the best reasons of all to hire Primal Alchemy . Setting things up, then taking everything down afterwards is probably the most time consuming aspect of any event.When you hire a catering company, you do not have to clean up all the food and dishes after your party!

The Primal Alchemy Staff takes care of every detail involved with setup:

  • Preparing and setting out the food and drinks in a visually pleasing manner
  • Assembling and positioning tables and chairs (or other seating arrangements)
  • Arranging linens, silverware, glasses, plates, etc.

After your event, the caterer and staff also handle clearing the tables, washing the dishes, and putting everything back where it belongs. We pride ourselves on leaving the kitchen cleaner than when we arrived.

5. Leave a Lasting Impression

If you want to impress your guests, catering is a great strategy.   When your event is catered, it tells people that this is an important occasion. The atmosphere and attention you pay to a birthday party, your anniversary or an important business dinner makes a long-lasting impression with an experience your guests will remember!

Style of Service

The first big choice you’ll make as you plan your event is how to serve your guests.

Depending on the vision you have for your event, a certain type of service style or even a combination of styles might work better than others.

Cocktail Reception

A cocktail-style receptions features appetizers and other small bites in lieu of a sit-down mea, but can also occur before the sit down portion of an event.

The appetizers are usually one or two bite portions and can be based by servers or stationary platters displayed buffet style on a table where guests can help themselves. This can also take place before a sit-down

Great for a casual or elegant atmosphere and for guests to mingle

Family Style

Family Style Service simply means that servers bring out large platters of food, which are then placed on the tables for guests to pass and self-serve.

A Family Style Sit Down Dinner at your event creates a fun, community oriented feel. It also helps guests get to know each other since they often help serve one another and chat while doing so.

 

We would suggest serving a family style meal if you are envisioning a chic, yet casual and comfortable ambiance at your event.

Buffet

For Buffet style service, food is typically presented in chafing dishes and/or on Ceramic Platters.

Guests walk along either side of it to help themselves to the food. Or, to make it a bit more upscale, it is an option to have staff at each dish to serve your guests.

A buffet at your event can be scaled up or down to match the formality, but they definitely lend a more informal and relaxed feel than plated or family style meals.

They are best for casual events or when you are on a tighter budget.

Food Stations

Food or Action Stations are similar to a buffet. A station-style reception is one where the food is spread out among different “stations” throughout the reception space and Chefs typically prepare and serve foods at the buffet or in designated spaces among your guests, rather than in the kitchen.

At your event, foods that could be fun and work well for action station service include wok stations, mashed potato bars, fajitas, pastas, grilled meats, etc. Or stationary charcuterie, cheese, or salad stations.

Plated

At a plated meal, guests are seated and served by a wait staff at tables.

This style is the most traditional and formal service option.

Typically, guests are served three courses: salad, entrée (which is selected beforehand), and dessert.

Boxed Meal

We provide fresh and energizing ingredients in our boxed lunch and dinners.

This is the perfect option for something simple or if you are going on a picnic, concert in the park or venue that allows you to bring in your own food.

Delivery or pick up available.

Drop-Off & Pick-Up

Our always-on-time catering crew delivers freshly prepared meals straight to you.

Choose from one of our drop-off catering menus, or work with us to design a menu that accommodates you and guests’ dietary needs.

We also provide biodegradable plates and eating utensils that make cleaning up quick and easy.
