Beach Plum Chef of Cape Cod Catering Menus are seasonal and feature local seafood, farmers market highlights, grass fed meats, game, and artisan products.
Menus are built with our clients, and are based on what you like to eat, the feeling of your event, and what you value most.
We specialize in custom menu planning – which means we consider your personal interests, and inspiration.
Many clients contact us for seamless menu planning that will incorporate gluten free, dairy or allergen free, or other dietary needs or lifestyle values. We can make an entire menu, or just a part of the menu for these requirements.
We also offer vegan, and vegetarian wedding menus. And we support culture/ food fusion.
