Styles of Service

The first big choice you’ll make as you plan your event is how to serve your guests. Depending on the vision you have for your event, a certain type of service style or even a combination of styles might work better than others.

Cocktail Reception

Cocktail Reception

Many options are available for a cocktail reception. This style is great for a stand-up-only event or when a short time frame is needed, and it can be as formal or casual as desired.

Small single bite appetizers can be tray passed, allowing the guests to flow from conversation to conversation without interruption. The appetizers can change as the event progresses, giving a variety throughout.

There is always an option for adding a few stationary appetizers, such as the ultimate cheese and charcuterie display or an over-the-top vegetable crudité.

Plated

Plated

A standout in elegance, sit down plated service is traditional and timeless. Combined with a passed appetizer cocktail hour, this will create the ultimate experience.

If you are looking to pamper your seated guests with full service for a multi-course menu, this more formal style is the way to go.

Primal Alchemy catered our wedding 1.5 months ago & I’m still hearing about how good the food was!!

Chef Paul put together an amazing spread for our wedding at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. The menu that was fresh & delicious. Our guests came out absolutely raving about the food. He & his staff were able to manage the challenges that cooking at the museum posed.

I chose to use Primal Alchemy for my daughter's wedding. I cannot express well enough how delicious the food and service was. From meeting with Chef Paul, the planning and guidance given by Cindy in the office and then on the day of the wedding, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. Everything from the artisan breads, delicious olive tapenade, salads and entrées, all made with fresh locally sourced foods, were incredible. The quality of the food was noticeably fresh, elevated and delicious. The set up, service and breakdown went so smoothly...we hardly noticed their servers presence and yet every request was met and the service was impeccable. I would HIGHLY recommend Primal Alchemy over the other larger catering companies available in Orange County which in my opinion are very standard/average, even mediocre. If you're a "foodie" and expect delicious food and service, choose these guys. you will be so pleased you did!! I wish I had photo's of the food. It was so delicious, it was all delightfully consumed without us taking pics!

Primal Alchemy catered my very small wedding on 1/15/21. We wanted restaurant quality food and we were blown away. The appetizers were amazing and the servers even saved a plate for my husband and I, knowing we'd be hungry since we missed cocktail hour taking photos. The lunch was incredible. Everyone at the table was so satisfied. Chef Paul's short ribs are to die for. On top of the incredible food, the service was so good and they left my mom's kitchen perfectly clean. We will happily hire Primal Alchemy for another event in the future!

Fabulous plated dinner service for our 14 guest wedding in September! We had our wedding in my parents backyard. The food was so delicious and the staff was incredibly kind. We felt very safe with their catering, and they were extremely professional and clean. They did tray passed appetizers, and brought our plates to us while being seated. Would HIGHLY recommend them again, and it was well worth going the "plated dinner service" route vs a buffet, especially for this intimate wedding celebration! My only regret is not taking a classic iphone pic of the food with my phone (or the staff! incredible staff!)

I reached out to Primal Alchemy to cater my micro-wedding at Rancho Los Cerritos. Primal Alchemy went above and beyond- not only did they plan an amazing menu, but they also coordinated florals, table rentals, and the cake for me. In particular, Cindy was a fantastic coordinator, and between Cindy and the rest of the team, the day was a dream come true. Everyone was raving about the fresh, beautiful food, and the tablescape/extras were perfect! Thank you Primal Alchemy!
