    Sorry, that brief is too vague.

    Do you mean -
    Buffet style, but client is providing the groceries, and you need to provide 10x Filipino dishes?

    Are you providing all equipment, oven, grill, utensils, tables, cutlery, linen, glassware, service and kitchen staff, garbage collection/removal, beverages, cold room, generator...etc..etc...

    Could vary the cost GREATLY!!

    Food costs + fixed costs + variable costs + your fee + extra labor
    + desired profit = $$$ per person.

    Let her supply everything and do it for free.  After all she is your friend.

    Yeah.......agreed I think.

    Doing business with a friend is a great way to lose one.

    (Maybe I should submit that to the Fortune Cookie gods :)
