Planning & Coordination
Catering & bar
We are here to add new life to your standard plated meal and limited bar options. We are just as sick of the same three meal choices and are here to save you!
Bland wedding reception dinners are a thing of the past with Takk House. Our food has flavor! Food and drink are one of the most essential parts of any celebration. It should be remembered for its excellence.
Many of us have owned and operated restaurants. We are foodies, educators, gardeners, chefs, and nutritionists. We understand allergies. No one likes vegetables cooked to mush. And meat should not be dry like sandpaper.
We genuinely love this stuff, and it shows. We have our own restaurant nights, chef dinners, cooking classes & offsite dinner parties. Food brings people together!
