We LOVE to cater! During the summer months we operate our popular taco food truck, Scratch Taqueria, in which we offer our scrumptious gourmet tacos.  Ole!  We love the interaction with both locals and tourists and seeing you at our truck each day. We cater Mexican menus and taco bars out of the truck during these months.

 

Year-round, however, our first love is to create unique menus for your special event from Scratch Kitchen. Check out sample menus below as well as our beautiful photos of actual events.  No party is too large or too small, whether it be a holiday party, a wedding reception, or a dinner party in your home that you are hosting.  Also, no budget is too small, as we are able to customize the menu to meet your financial needs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can we rent tables, linens and table settings from you?


We do not have items available for rent. We recommend Settings Event Rental in Salida, CO who does an excellent job and has a large selection of items to choose from for your event.




How are meals and appetizers served?


Our food is served buffet style.




Can you provide gluten free, vegetarian or vegan items?


Yes! We like for all of your guests to have an enjoyable dining experience. Please let us know of any food allergies and we can work together with you to create options for those with special requests. Please note that, even though we can give options to your gluten free guests, the food is prepared in a kitchen that contains gluten.




Can we have your food truck at our event?


During our busy season, which is mid-May through mid-September,we do not move our food truck from its location in Buena Vista. During the off-season, you can rent our food truck to come to your location for an additional fee. We have a 30 mile travel radius limit that we do not travel ouside of and we will not drive the truck over a mountain pass.




Do you provide bartending service?


We do not offer bartending service. We recommend The Pour Trailer for The Barn at Sunset Ranch as well as Wildflower Bartending from Salida for all other locations. We would suggest that you also discuss with them non-alcoholic options, as this will streamline your beverage selections for your event.




What does your catering staff do?


Our catering staff works very hard behind the scenes both behind the scenes and then out front to serve your guests and to help your event run smoothly. They transport all the food, set up the buffet, serve your guests as they go through the line, clear dinner plates, take down and clean up the buffet area and clean the kitchen area before they leave the event location. The cost is 20% of the overall menu cost. Tipping is not required but highly recommended for our dedicated staff. If you do not need catering staff on location, then talk to us about pick-up and delivery options that are available.




Can we schedule a taste test?


We only offer tastings while our food truck is operational from mid-May through mid-September. You are welcome to schedule a date and time with us during these months. We cannot guarantee that you will be tasting your specific menu, but you can get a sense of our flavors and hospitality that are central to what we do. If you are requesting a tasting when the food truck is not open, we are happy to bake you a treat, buy you a cup of coffee, and meet you at your event location.




What forms of payment do you accept?


For large catered events with a total over $300 we only accept checks or cash.





Please note, we will begin accepting reservations for 2022 catering events after September 15th of this year.  Check back with us at that time for availability.
