planning for your dinner

Thank you for booking Alana’s Food & Wine for your dinner. I am looking forward to cooking for you and your guests.

There are a few things you can do to plan for your dinner so it goes smoothly for you and all of your guests:

1. Please send me some details for the evening (email to alanasfoodandwine@gmail.com):

  • guest count and arrival time
  • address and contact information (including phone number for day of event)
  • diet restrictions, allergies, preferences and/or special instructions for the evening

2. Please clear some refrigerator space and as much kitchen counter space as possible.

3. I will bring most of my own tools but might use some of your things if that’s ok.

4. My assistant and I will arrive approximately 1-1.5 hours before guest arrival.

If you have any questions please feel free to email any time.

beverages/wine

We can also set up any table or beverage service that you would like and I can make wine recommendations if you like and discuss procurement of same.

payment

I’ll email a bill before the event so as not to disrupt the evening. Cash or check to Alana Shock is preferred (I will pay the server).

dinner DETAILS

Dinners are for 6-10 guests. Special arrangements can be made for fewer or more guests. I serve a few finger foods followed by a plated starter, entree and dessert. $100 per person for dinner and 20% service for that evening. Travel fees apply outside of the I-270 outerbelt of Columbus.

I let the menu happen naturally based on what I find at the farm markets. Let me know all of your dining do’s, don’ts and your likes… everything eles a surprise.
