The Knife and Fork is all about food voodoo – the dark arts of cooking.
At the moment we are only working by invitation whilst we perfect our style of entertaining and dining – please keep checking back because we are expecting great things from ourselves.
Our missions statement is to always be fresh – this applies to the food and the events. When we cater for you then expect all six of your senses to be fully involved in the experience.
We will also show you many pictures of recent events we have done just to give you an idea of how we work as well as how others have used a particular site. Additionally, we do not look at your event as just another contract, but rather as a catering company who truly understands and cares about what you are going through – all those family dynamics, budgetary concerns, choosing other vendors and all the other facets of this process which raise questions as to whether or not you have made the right decisions.
Choose a caterer which has a superb long-standing reputation and a consistent commitment to excellence and one with whom you feel a high level of confidence.
We enjoy helping our clients create their own special menu. Once you have received the sample menus, the next step is to come into our offices in Rockville and meet with us. At that meeting we will take you through a theoretical “day of” – creating a time line and floor plan as well as discussing so much more. We can assist you in finding venues and other vendors, talk with you about what we do as well as what you really need. We will also talk about many menu ideas from which we will create an actual proposal which reflects the pricing and services that we will provide for your event.
The Knife & Fork is a custom caterer working with our prospective clients to create a menu and a look that suits their tastes, budget and the season. We are also full service – many times working in lieu of a party planner, we will create the time line, floor plan, coordinate all of your vendors and run the actual event. We provide the rentals of tables, chairs, china, flatware, glassware, table linens and more. We provide the bar set ups, mixers, ice and bar fruit. We provide the staffing – kitchen, wait people, bus staff and bartenders.
You are welcome to provide your own alcohol and we will assist you in where to purchase the product as well as what to order and how much.To get you started we send out sample menus which are priced for food alone. The samples are designed to give you an idea of the many types of cuisine that we do as well as combinations of service styles. The sample menus you will receive are not even a single percent of what we do!
