Menus

Since 2010, A La Carte Events & Catering has repeated one full menu - and that was at the client's request since she was entertaining two different groups in her home just a couple of days apart. Not only do we personalize menus, we prefer to, which is one of the reasons we work with so many foodies.

Long after your event is over, your guests will remember the food. At A La Carte Events & Catering, we believe your menu should reflect your taste and your vision of the party. You may be thinking about a fancy fete with precious hors d' oeuvres or an outdoor shindig replete with a whole hog - literally - roasted on-site. Let's collaborate on a custom menu for your event.

Be Original

The menus listed below are a place to start, but definitely don't feel limited to just what you see. Both the chef and your planner will work with you to create original items for your event. For instance,
- One client requested an all orange and white menu for a UT student welcoming event.
- Several clients have paired whiskeys and wines for tasting events.
- One family had a gluten-free bat mitzvah since the guest of honor has Celiac.
- Another wanted modern French desserts with a nod to Asian culture for her wedding.
- Recently a family honored their loved one with a Cajun Texas menu featuring all of his favorite foods.

Be Seasonal

Do you love to add seasonal touches? So do we. One of the best things about fall, besides a break from the heat, is the return of Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites with Gingersnap Crust.

Sure, you can get asparagus and strawberries and peaches year-round, but they never taste quite as good as when they're locally grown. Here is the guide A La Carte's culinary team uses for Texas produce.

If you haven't already signed up for the monthly newsletter - it features requested recipes - you can here.

These menus are just a starting point. From here, let's add some of your favorite foods and leave out things you don't like.

"I reached out to A La Carte requesting a list of desserts, and Laura replied back asking me "What are your favorite desserts, and what are the groom's favorite desserts?" And after telling her, she created a list that represented US. The desserts she had thought about were so unique, sounded much more delicious than my list, and exemplified the desserts who the wedding was for." - Andrea N.
