Studio Catering Series #4

Not all shoots have a formal and structured mood about them. Many times, clients prefer a casual, friendly but productive environment, where friends and colleagues can collaborate while sharing coffee, snacks and a few laughs. For these kinds of shoots, we would recommend staying away from formal catering, and perhaps consider sharing one or a few Säntis Delicatessen platters. They feature a variety of fresh cold cuts and cheeses, (you can ask for different samplings if you order more than one platter), and can be served with crusty French bread. This kind of menu offers a refreshing change from the usual kind of catering, and promotes mingling among the crew and talent. Platters come in a variety of sizes to suit both small and larger scale shoots.

Säntis Delicatessen Platters

1,000 Pesos: Good for 8-10 people
1,500 Pesos: Good for 10-12 people
2,000 Pesos: Good for 12-15 people

French Bread: Prices to be determined based on availability and platter size.

Delivery charge: 200 Pesos flat fee.

*Orders must be placed to Pioneer Studios (landline: 632-7683) at least 24 hours before shoot date.

Studio Catering Series #3

There are times when one craves simple, delicious food. The kind that you would imagine your Mom would prepare for a Sunday family meal. La Cuisine Française specializes in this very kind of food. Except in their case, it is casual French comfort food. Their dishes are reminiscent of a countryside feast; earthenware platters of fresh and flavorful food, on a long wooden dining table in Provence. 

For clients who are bored of the usual humdrum catering options, we would highly recommend Michele d'Orival's authentic French menu for Pioneer Studios. The choices are light, yet satisfying, and there is something for everyone, even vegetarians. The Pièce de résistance is the authentic Parisian Chocolate Cake, which literally melts in your mouth.


La Cuisine Française Menu

Classic Caesar Salad
Roast Chicken with 40 garlic cloves (served with aioli)
Angel Hair Aglio Olio
Ratatouille Vegetables
Coriander Rice
Parisian Chocolate Cake

Option 1 : 
Food Delivery only (delivered in disposable platters/containers)
350 Pesos + 12% VAT per person

Option 2:
Food Delivery + Staff + Full Catering Equipment (Buffet set-up)
490 Pesos + 12% VAT per person

*A flat fee of 300 Pesos will be applied for delivery

Catering is often a crucial part of making the talent and crew survive a long shooting day. In an effort to make our clients booking experience a more seamless one, Pioneer Studios will be posting a series of caterers to suit all palates. These are caterers that we have personally filtered and taste tested, so no need to worry about doing your homework properly. To start off the series, we would like to feature something to offer your Celebrity or VIP clients, who often require special attention while shooting large campaigns at photo studios.

Torch Restaurant caters to the higher end client, with dishes that use quality ingredients, and that are prepared in a technically proficient manner. The meat and seafood is tender and seasoned well. The salad is fresh and crisp, as are the veggies that accompany the dishes. Though their menu is for the bigger budget shoot, the value, selection and presentation of the food is impressive. Your VIP client will surely not be disappointed. Here is the Torch menu for Pioneer Studios clients:
