Halloween party F.A.Q’s

It’s pretty much all about you! We can cater in almost any location you tell us when and were and we’ll take care or the rest. But if you need a little help deciding here are a few Halloween party F.A.Q’s.

Do you only cater in Sussex?

No, we are based in Mid-Sussex and tip toeing across the borders into Surrey and Kent is not a problem

Do you cater for children?

Yes of course, we are a family company and we understand that if the parents won’t relax until they know that their children are being well looked after.

Do you cater for vegetarians?

Most certainly yes, all our food with the exception of bread is made in our kitchen in the heart of Sussex and we are happy to cater for all dietery requriments such as Vegeterian, Gluten Free, Vegan, Kosher, Dairy Free and Halal.

Will my kitchen be big enough?

Depending on numbers, possibly. When quoting will talk to you about your space and facilities available. If required we can hire you our small gazebos and tables as temporary outdoor preparation spaces.

I have an aga, will this be ok for hot food?

If you can get the aga up to temperature throughout the day prior to your event then yes we can work with an aga. If we are using your own ovens it is your responsibility to ensure they are in good working order, the speed of service for hot food may be affected if your oven struggles to come up to temperature with the quantity of food needing to be cooked combined with being on at a high heat for 2-3hrs during service.

If I am ordering a cold food delivery will it fit in my fridge?

Please do male sufficiant room for food platters. They are a standard 1/2 gastro tray size measuring approx. 325 x 265 mm and come lidded.

Can we change the menu?

Yes, but there will may be an additional charge for this service – also it is important to note that our afternoon scream menu has been created with specific cold dishes that transport well, if you decide to create a new menu this may not be suitable for pre-displayed platters and you will have to factor in an event staff cost.

When will you arrive?

If you having a staffed event then our team will arrive a minimum of 2 hours prior to service. If you are expecting a delivery please talk to our office and we will aim to deiliver within a 2hour time slot.

What extra hire do I need?

Do you want seating for your guest? Do you need tables, what kind i.e.posers or regular? Do these tables need linen? Have you a fridge for your drinks? Do you have a suitable oven? Do you have glassware? etc… Sussex Chef can organise any or all of this for you.

Will your staff serve my own drinks that I have purchased elsewhere?

If you are having food service staff they will be busy serving your food. If you want your drinks served by us to we would be happy to provide you with a dedicated drinks waiter, so Yes.
(We can also hire glassware and bring ice on the day)

Can you cater for dietary requirements?

In these modern times the list of dietary requirements is ever growing. At Sussex Chef we feel it is imperative that everyone at your party should be able to enjoy themselves and be able to eat and feel safe in the knowledge that their dietary needs are being catered for. So, if you or any of your guests require a Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Halal, Vegan or Kosher diet, or have any Allergies to be catered for the team at Sussex Chef are at your service.
