With the current gathering limits, we have had to get creative here at the Pudding, especially as we move indoors over the coming months. We understand entertaining this fall/winter will be anything but normal but have created a menu that we think will allow you to still entertain and keep while keeping you and your guests safe.
We have a few simple yet delicious dinners that can be executed by you, the client. We have also created a few more intricate menus for which we suggest you hire our professional staff to come on site and prepare/ serve.
