“Food is a central activity of mankind and one of the single most significant trademarks of a culture.”
Mark Kurlansky, 'Choice Cuts' (2002)
Planning a party can be daunting so we've put together a checklist to help you decide what you want..
From intimate dinner to huge banquet, it is imperative to decide upon a budget from the outset. Anna Duttson Events is always willing to discuss the available budget and to work with it to create the perfect event for you.
Your choice of venue will influence the entire event. Anna Duttson Events will happily travel to your home/business/venue to discuss how you can get the most of your chosen location. Seeing the venue first-hand allows a number of decisions to be made instantly.
These can include:
• Power constraints
• Heath and safety issues
• Kitchen equipment present
• Time constraints
• Set up – lift and vehicle access
• Number of guests to be catered for
• Measurement – what equipment is required and is it feasible?
“A good cook is the peculiar gift of the gods. He must be a perfect creature from the brain to the palate, from the palate to the finger's end.”
Walter Savage Landor
When the budget and site visit are out of the way it's time to look at the most exciting aspect of any party, the food. There are a number of alternatives open to you to including:
• Sit down dinner
• 'Drop off' food
• Stall food

We are happy to advise about and provide the appropriate choice of wines, champagne or cocktails. You will only be charged for drinks consumed at the event and not by case or crate.

Uniform will be provided and you can choose from the standard black shirt and trouser and skirt combination to the themed events.

All the equipment can be delivered to your venue anywhere in the country.
