How it Works
Why choose Canapé Kitchen?
Canapé Kitchen focusses on providing a range high quality food products, from canapés to bowl foods, designed to be delivered to you ready-to-eat. We have curated our collection to show a small yet beautiful number of options, which we know will be loved by your guests, making it easy to build the perfect menu for your event.
How do you make your choices?
The number of selections you make to create your menu is up to you, however, we suggest choosing between six and eight options, ensuring that you have one of each canapé type per guest. So if you are having 50 people at your event for two to three hours, we'd suggest allowing up to eight canapés per person, meaning you should choose eight canapés types and order 50 pieces of each.
For shorter events such as breakfast or pre-dinner receptions you may want to drop the number of canapés per person to four to five options.
How is the food delivered?
The food is packed in sturdy boxes with non slip mats to ensure it stays in good condition during transit. You will then need to decant the canapés onto serving platters of your own, or you can choose to add palm leaf or black melamine platters from our Service-ware section.
Availability & delivery dates
We do ask that you choose a delivery date while in the Basket section. We are working on a method of showing our availability before you place your order, but for now we do reserve the right to decline an order if we are not able to fulfil it.
We require at least three full working days notice to fulfil an order, although this may increase during busy periods such as weekends and Christmas. If you do need canapés in a shorter time period please call us to see if we can fit you in.
We recommend delivery of your canapés 1 to 1.5 hours before they are due to be consumed. If you tell us the start time for food service we'll give you a one hour delivery slot to work around that. For example, if you would like to serve canapés at 5pm, we'll organise delivery for 3 - 4pm.
Early delivery / Chilling your food
If for any reason you request delivery of your food much earlier than it will be served, then please make sure you have adequate chilling facilities at your venue. Garnishes, fish products, dairy products and meat products all require chilling if not to be consumed within a short period of time. We also cannot take responsibility for the quality of products if food is stored for several hours before consumption. Our canapés are freshly made each day and designed to be eaten within a short time of final garnishing.
Where do we deliver & what are the delivery costs?
At present we only deliver within the M25 for a set fee of £40. Should you order from outside of this area we will either decline your order or give you a bespoke delivery price.
All canapés are £2 and don't require VAT to be charged. We have a minimum order of 30 pieces of any canapé type, which is why we've arranged our pricing by platter size. You can order a platter of 30 pieces for £60 and so on. We have an overall minimum spend of £300 on any one order.
Drinks and service-ware are priced as shown, either per item or grouped into cases. VAT on these items will be added at checkout.
Fortunately we don't need to charge VAT on our drop off canapé range, however, you will notice that VAT is added onto any service-ware and drinks you may choose to add. VAT is also charged on delivery prices.
