SWEET TREAT DESSERT MENU

At all ‘On-site’ cookouts we prepare both a special first taste while the food is being prepared and also a sweet dessert bite to say, ‘Thank you,’ once the meal is through! For ‘Catered’ cookouts, hosts choose either a first taste -or- last bite. While these elements make a thoughtful and tasty addition to your guests’ experience, adding some our yummy desserts can complete the meal and leave everyone talking!

 

Are we missing something? Want to make a modification? If you have something else in mind – that’s great! We love to be creative and love to collaborate. Let’s hear your ideas. It’s very likely that we can make it happen!

FREQUENT QUESTIONS ANSWERED

After many cookouts, we have learned that each one is a little different. We all have different tastes, different visions and different needs. For most cookouts, we present meals in a serve yourself ‘better-than-buffet’ style.  Action stations are attended by chefs who can help serve, suggest & answer questions while guests select what they want from the offerings displayed.

How much does a cookout really cost?

Cookouts vary in price depending on season, how many people will be fed, what types of items or additional courses are selected, and a few other site and service-related factors. In order to ensure we are giving you the best & most accurate pricing possible we should talk specifics, let's chat!

What kind of area or space is needed to host a pig roast?

We have found, where there is a will, there is a way. There are a variety of whole roasting techniques we can use to pull off a great pig roast in nearly any venue or cooking area. For an ‘On-site’ cookout, an open outdoor cooking area is required. Depending on the venue, our team can help determine if an ‘On-site’, ‘Catered’, or Hybrid style cookout would work best for catering your event.

How far in advance should I reserve my date?

Wedding receptions and other large events typically book 6-12 months in advance. Smaller cookouts book a bit closer to the event date. Weekends, holidays and other popular dates often book quickly… some more than 12 months out. If you want to plan a cookout, we should talk ASAP. The more time we have to plan the better! Reach out today to discuss possibilities and availability!

What happens if it rains on the day of my event?

Reel & Ranch cookouts are typically rain or shine events. This is real slow food catering and once we get started it is impossible to stop the process. Thankfully here in Southern California a whole day of rain is something we don’t often need to worry about. Our cooking and service areas are covered and do just fine in case of any passing sprinkles!

What is the difference between 'last bites' and 'sweet treats'?

Our signature 'last bite' is a bite sized portion sent from our kitchen team to each one of your guests. It is meant to say thank you, finishing off the meal with a sweet kiss goodnight. ‘Last bite’ items are complementary and are selected by the chef. 'Sweet treats’ are traditional dessert style last course options. Sweet treats make great additions to cookouts and are selected in advance by event hosts.

WHAT MAKE US THE BEST?

This is How We Roll!

When we cook for your friends and family, you all become a part of our extended cookout family. More than a great meal, this is a culinary experience and when we come for a cookout catering, we are here to feed your people.

 

We prepare special first tastes while the food is being prepared and sweet dessert bites to say, ‘Thank you,’ once the meal is through! Your choice & our pleasure!
