I highly recommend Don Dutcher (House Call Chef). I am a Fused Glass artist and a full time Junior High Art Teacher. Don sat down with me and went over my event (the number of hours, my expectations, the type of food my guests might expect) and then we went shopping. He had already looked over my utensils and  kitchenware. All I had to worry about was my artwork and setup, the food was covered. He picked foods that could sit out all day without spoiling or needing a lot of fussing, and yet stay delicious and beautiful. In my case I hired him to handle doing the entire preparation and setting. My guests were IMPRESSED. I arranged for Don to stay around to tend to the food, and socialize. He was a relaxed, gregarious presence and mixed well with my clients. It seemed like everyone wanted to know who he was! I know a good thing when I see it, I signed up for his services for my open house next year.
