Veelgestelde vragen (FAQ)
Where can you set up?
Anywhere that has outdoor flat ground is suitable for our set up. We do not need to be near a power supply unless its an evening function. We will bring our own pop up tent, tables to set up and of course, our Jiko ovens.
What surface do you put your Jiko Oven on?
There are no restrictions to where we put our equipment as long as it’s outdoor and it is on level ground. Grass is usually the best place but we can also cook on your patio or decking area. Whilst we always take precautions against charcoal, grease and oil marks, we cannot accept liability for any damage caused.
What about plates and napkins?
Producing as little waste as possible is important to us. We can bring bio degradable plates, cutlery and napkins, for an additional cost. If you would prefer china plates and steel cutlery we source this for you, for an additional price as well.
How long can you serve for?
We can serve unlimited pizzas for any length of time of up to 6 hours. From a classic garden party to an outdoor wedding reception, we understand that each event is different. Our packages start at a minimum of 2 hours serving.
Can you serve guests for a sit down meal?
Yes we can! As long as there is an outdoor space where we can set up and access to an indoor kitchen, this is no problem.
What is included in your package?
Our most popular Pizza Package includes an unlimited buffet for 2 hours. This includes unlimited pizza with any of the toppings, salad and masala/non-masala chips. Unlimited soft drinks/water and other sides can also be included for a small extra charge.
Do you serve alcohol?
We cannot bring alcohol to your event, but we are more than happy to serve it if provided at your event by yourselves. There is no corkage, but we do charge for extra staff as needed.
Do you charge extra for travelling?
We are based in Whetstone, North London. Travel costs to other areas in North London are included in the package. We also cater to Essex, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Surrey, for which a small additional petrol charge will be included.
What about rain?
Okay, so you have planned your perfect party, its forecasted to be a sunny day, then you wake up and its grey skies. Not to worry! As long as your guests and toasty and warm, and they get hot food… that’s all that matters! With the help of our gazebo, we can continue to cook outside until service time, then all the food is plated and served undercover, still hot and sizzling! We can also be flexible with timings on the day itself where possible in order to avoid the rain.
What about special dietary requirements?
We can discuss with you special dietary requirements such as vegetarian, halal, gluten free and diabetic. We can do our best to avoid specific ingredients such as nuts, but due to nature of our kitchens and food preparation areas, there may be traces of these ingredients in the food.
Are you fully insured?
Yes we are fully insured with Direct Line to provide a catering service at other venues including private homes. All our staff have also completed Level 2 hygiene courses.
