unique | Launched in 2013, The Cocktail Party Chef is a unique catering company that specializes in one kind of event: cocktail parties. Stylish bites became the owner Karen Ferries-Yoon's culinary niche after working at Daniel Boulud’s three-star Michelin restaurant in Manhattan. The standard was always the same: perfect hors d’oeuvres.
modern | Cocktail parties capture a modernist spirit of entertaining. Whether your event is big or small, fancy or casual, The Cocktail Party Chef offers two styles of service based on your budget: a cocktail party menu with full-service staffing and a food delivery menu where the hors d'oeuvres are all ready to go with no assembly required. Choose from 150 savory and sweet selections. Best yet, hosts have the option of customizing appetizers that fit their eating preferences, such as dairy or gluten free or the paleo diet.
There are hors d'oeuvres for a diversity of events: upscale store openings, real estate open houses, media events, baby showers, informal gatherings in private homes where the hosts feel like guests at their own cocktail party, even a wedding reception for a hundred. Each cocktail party reveals a contemporary aesthetic from the choice of canapé to the creative food presentations.
artistic | The signature look of The Cocktail Party Chef are its beautiful modern designs, something called "tray decor." Each hors d’oeuvre presented on the trademark white square platters is styled with a keen eye for detail, blending textures, heights, and colors, so that the choice of tray decor materials best fits the personality of each one.
