I am getting married in NYC and having off site caterering.  Typically caterers will have mobile kitchen set ups that allow them to cook off site – you may have to call around but I think you should be able to find a few options in the Buffalo area.  Hopefully that helps!

Convection oven.  Our (off-site) caterer did partial cooking ahead of time (i.e. cooked the meats, etc.) and then warmed or cooked the rest on-site (sauces, etc.) using a convection oven (she rented it from the same place she got all the rest of the equipment we had brought it — tables, chairs, etc. and was included in our total bill).  It went great!  The food was delish, and just the right temp.  Those things are f’in amazing!  They can also probably use those little gas stovetops that are used in omelette stations w/o violating fire code.  A good caterer and/or event planner in your area should be able to handle it.

They should bring the food warmed or be able to handle it somehow. I sacrificed food for good booze and location. The cater is handling everything.

 

Actually I’m using a resturant for my caterer. They do dinners and catering.

Our venue has a non-working kitchen. Pretty much, its just a shell of a kitchen.. Our caterer has to bring all the equipment in. It may seem like a big deal but that is what caterers do…if you hire a reputable vendor and do a walk through with them they will be able to work out what they need to bring.

One thing to check on would be power supply….you may need to rent a generator if the building doesnt have enough to support all the equipment.

Our caterer will set up a tent outside the building that has floor and wall coverings to finish off some of the cooking. HTH
