“We booked Pangaea for our wedding this past July at Hildene and are so happy we did! From every conversation to the food to the staff – Pangaea is amazing! Nick and team were so nice and answered all the questions we had throughout the planning process. The tasting was unreal – and so fun! Everything was so delicious that it was difficult to choose what to include on our menu! A few weeks before our wedding I made a change to one of the dessert items and it was no issue! We have allergies in the family and Pangaea assured us it was no issue. On our wedding day, the Pangaea staff were so friendly and attentive. Nick and team are organized, super nice and deliver amazing food! Book Pangaea ASAP!”
“We worked with Nick from Pangaea – we absolutely loved the experienced. Nick was a professional from day one – the tasting was absolutely incredible and he incorporated so many things that were special to us on our wedding day. He was extremely flexible – he helped us get linens and napkins changed at the last minute without issues and he worked with some special requests and made them all work perfectly! Also, the food was amazing – so many of our guests commented on how good it was and how much they enjoyed the experience of table-side ordering at a wedding. We would recommend Pangaea to everyone!”
“It’s been over a week since our wedding, and our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was! Nick was incredibly helpful in planning the arrangements and getting everything set up and delivered on time. Every single bite was absolutely perfect, and although I might be a little biased, I think it was the best meal I have ever had at a wedding!”
“Hildene’s exclusive vendor relationships with Pangaea Fine Dining and Lily of the Valley Florist took a lot of stress out of the vendor selection process, and we couldn’t have been happier with our food and our flowers. Hildene’s list of recommended vendors was also incredibly helpful, and it made many of our other important selections seem nearly effortless. My husband and I could go on forever singing Hildene’s praises, but all you need to know is that if you choose Hildene for your wedding, you’re in great hands and you won’t regret it!”
How far in advance should I start planning?
As soon as you say yes! Great venues book fast. Faster during the summer months. Saturdays in July and August, for example, are typically booked a year or two in advance. So, the earlier you start planning the better. We recommend that you start planning a minimum of six months in advance to ensure that you get everything you’re dreaming of.
What about a tasting?
Once you have made your first payment securing Pangaea as your caterer we will want to schedule a tasting. We will send a tasting planner to design a menu for you to taste from. At the tasting you will try everything to help narrow down your selections for the event.
Who comes to our tasting?
Typically it is the wedding couple. If there are more people involved in your planning process let us know and we will see what we can do.
What should we bring to our tasting?
Your appetite! And any information or materials that will help in planning your menu and table layout/design. Our event planning team, will be on hand to answer all your questions and discuss ingredients and cooking techniques as you wish. We recommend planning two to three hours for your tasting.
Do you take care of bar services?
Yes! Pangaea is a full-service catering company, which includes rentals and fully trained and insured bar staff. If you’re looking for something specific, please ask.
Do your prices include service staff and rentals?
If you would like, we tailor all catering packages to the event itself. We will send our questionnaire which helps us understand details like basic timeline, guest count, service style preferences, menu options, bar options, and more. From there, we will put together a customized catering proposal for you.
When do I need to confirm guest numbers?
We require final guest numbers 14 days prior to your event. After this date, we are still able to accommodate minor changes in guest numbers on a case-by-case basis.
Can you accommodate special dietary needs?
Yes! Our team has a great deal of experience handling all sorts of allergies and dietary restrictions. Let us know your requirements in advance and we will make the necessary adjustments to satisfy your guests.
Note that for very serious allergies, we cannot fully guarantee that your food is completely allergen free.
What service style do you offer?
We can do everything from elegant buffet, casual BBQ, family style platters to cocktail parties and interactive Chef’s Stations. However, our specialty is formal service, made-to-order plated meals. Inquire with our team to find the best option to suit your big day.
Who prints the menus?
Our menu proposals are sent with our preferred menu wording. However you will need to find someone to design and print them. We have some of our past favorites to share with you at your tasting.
Other charges you may find in your proposal
We offer a wide range of event service styles. Our planning team will be sure to capture your vision and assemble the most fitting team for your event.
This expense is applied to all of our catering services outside of our restaurant. It’s not easy to put a restaurant where there was no restaurant in a few hours.
We will work with you to find the best linen to suit your vision. We work with a few vendors and pass our cost along. The additional damage waiver fee covers typical wear and tear.
Pangaea has a cache of great wares to host your party. If there is something we don’t have, we can connect you with other rental companies with larger selections.
No “bandwiches” here. We serve hot fresh meals for your band, DJ, photographers, and planners to make sure they have the nourishment they need to be at the top of their game for you.
If you have humans under 10 looking for less refined fare, we can offer the same focus on ingredients while being a little more kid friendly. Please just let us know if they will be seated at the reception or if there is a designated location for them.
