Default Catering Private parties only

Wondering if some folks can chime in here, particularly those in the NE Illinois area.

We have been doing some small parties for folks, largest so far was about 80-90 people (A wedding reception in WI for freinds, cooked all onsite). Private parties, on private property.

We're getting some more inquiries, so I'm thinking we should be looking at an umbrella policy for liability protection, but do we need to form an LLC or do anything else to protect ourselves? Seems like a lot of money to spend if it's only a few (10-12) parties per year? Hate to lose our profits just covering our arses!

Up till now, we've had no issues, but I don't want to lose everything to someone blaming a virus or something on our food!

Thanks in advance for the suggestions
