  • Event Costs: Since CULINAIRE custom-designs each and every event, we do not offer “package” pricing. Sample proposals from past events are available upon request and sample menus at http://http://culinaire-gourmetfoodcatering.com/. Variables such as number of guests, menu and event duration will impact your final cost. Due to economy of scale, per-person costs tend to be lower for larger events. Generally speaking, per-person costs encompass the following ranges:
  • Food: $20 and up, per person
  • Rentals: Hofheinz House inventory GRATIS, specialty rentals are additional
  • Staffing: $20 and up, per person
  • Bar/Beverage Service: $6 per hour and up, per person
