BBQ Smoked Ribs, Hot Garlic Crabs, and Chicken Wing Flings are just some of the mouth-watering treats to savor when you book a reputed Creole Caterer. These tasty recipes, prepared with fresh ingredients and authentic seasoning, can leave a lasting impression on guests. 

However, when it comes to catering, there are a ton of questions clients have but often find answers difficult to come by.

Therefore, Carolyn’s Creole Kitchen wants to arm you with the most accurate information available to help you make informed decisions. To do this, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about hiring a caterer.

1. How much will it cost to serve fifty people?
We must discuss these things to determine what you want, need, and how many guests you are attempting to serve.

2. How many pieces of Chicken, Beef, or Fish are in a pan?
We serve generous portions. However, the only way we can help with portion control is by serving your guests directly. It also helps avoid waste.

3. Does the Price Include Plates, Cups, and Napkins?
It depends on what serving option you choose. Keep in mind that with Covid-19 still lingering, you will not want people to help themselves unless your meals get individually packaged. 

4. Do you Deliver?
Yes, we deliver, and you can determine if you want a Full or Limited Setup Onsite.
