Planning a party at home but don't want all of the work? The Cheery Chef can help! 

With 1-2 weeks notice of your party, I can help you create a menu, prepare the food for you and have it ready for you to pick up. This idea started with a wonderful meal customer of mine wanted to throw a tea party for her granddaughter but needed some help preparing all of the dishes. 

We came up with a menu together, I made all of the goodies and she picked it up a day before the party. I made: scones, cookies, cakes, sausage rolls and mini quiches. It was a big hit! 

Let me know what party you are planning and let's talk! 

We can come up with a menu and a price for your "party to go!"
