Dear Sir/Madam:

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website, and considering me for your upcoming event. There are many different chefs and caterers in the Hudson Valley, so the fact that you took some time to explore my services means a lot. 

My 15 years of experience working in private country clubs has made me very humble when it comes to peoples' requests for their event. If you view my general catering package you will not see the dishes I offer you. Instead, you will see different proteins and sides I offer. Why is it so generalized?

Your event is just that - YOUR event. It would be selfish of me to restrict you to dishes only I want to make. That is no longer me serving you, but rather you dealing and settling for a service. 

There are many things to consider when deciding on your meal for your event. What is the event focus/celebration? What is the demographic of the people attending the event? Is it formal or casual? Are people able to sit down, or must they stand? These are only some of the questions that need to be answered before beginning to construct a meal to complement your event. 

Why is my catering package so general? Because I cannot begin to suggest different foods and dishes without knowing all those details. It is my job as a chef to bring to you the proper cuisine for your event. If I were to confine you to limited choices I would not be providing the proper service to you. 

Please make sure you speak to multiple caterers to get an idea what each can do for your event, but remember that I am YOUR Personal Chef in the Hudson Valley. I bring to YOU what you PERSONALLY need. After weighing your options if you feel my services are what you need please reach out to me. I would love to discuss your event, and what I can personally do for you. 

Sincerely, 
Chef Stefan Fraundorfer
