I had a year full of milestones that I wanted to ensure were marked with amazing memories; a retirement, a 60th birthday and an upcoming grandchild. What to do?? The perfect solution, “Cookery Catering”.

The food and service that you provided for all three occasions was absolutely perfect. I cannot thank you enough for firstly assisting me with choosing the perfect menus, allowing me to cater to the varying occasions and tastes alike and also for providing amazing service.

Your food was delicious, the plating spectacular and your professionalism provided an atmosphere of sophistication at all three events!!!

Thank you “Cookery Catering” for allowing me to mark these milestones with amazing memories!!!!

 "Mat and Andrew from Cookery Catering far exceeded our expectations! What a fabulous meal and beautiful presentation! From mini mugs of corn soup to poutine served like it came from a chip truck, they didn’t miss any detail to make our cocktail-style wedding a complete success. And the dessert presentation was stunning! Weeks (and even months) after our wedding we continue to hear positive comments on the presentation and absolutely delicious food. We met with Mat to discuss a less formal dinner idea with food stations representing the places we had travelled and they translated those ideas into an unbelievable array of food! The staff from Cookery Catering were awesome and very professional. The bartenders had a great sense of humour and helped make the late evening fun for everyone."

- Danielle Asadoorian | Summer Wedding 2013

 “Andrew and his crew catered my wedding on August 17th. We did a small backyard wedding with immediate family and friends. Everyone was talking about Cookery Catering’s professionalism and fantastic choices of food selection for days. The company turned my wedding from just a small backyard gathering between friends to a well-organized event. It was so worth it. I have worked in catering as a server for years. I can truly say, my wedding was the best catering event I have ever attended. Thank you so much!”

Andrew and Mathew, We would like to thank you for the truly awesome wedding reception banquet that you provided for our 60 guests. We are still receiving accolades about the food and the professionalism of your staff. We were so impressed that we asked you to prepare an intimate dinner for 8 guests in our home. Again you have outdone yourselves. The appetizers and 3-course dinner were splendid and to our surprise we discovered that you had expertly cleaned our kitchen before you left. We can’t wait to use your services again. All our guests are recommending Cookery Catering to their friends. Many thanks,”

- Lori Kennedy | Magna International

______________________________________________________________________________

The Cookery Catering team did an exceptional job catering for over 300 guests at our Tiles Plus & Marana Kitchens Grand Opening party in October. The food was to die for & all of the guests were asking for their contact information afterwards. Their serving staff were all very polite & professional, and the presentation of the food was perfect. Mat & Andrew customized a menu to pair perfectly with the theme & tone of our event, and they truly exceeded our expectations. The entire experience working with them was a joy, they even left the service kitchen cleaner than they found it. We enthusiastically recommend you give them a try for your next event, you will not be disappointed.”

-Lauren Tobin | Tiles Plus Ltd.

Cookery Catering has done an outstanding job catering our company's annual Holiday lunch at Magna for the past 2 years. Each year they provide us with mouth-watering, quality food for over 350 employees on 3 different shifts. They always accommodate our many dietary restrictions in a delicious and creative way, all the while staying within our budget. The Cookery Catering team is always a pleasure to work with! Their team is personable, friendly and professional. I strongly recommend that you book Cookery Catering for your next corporate function if you want amazing food and great service! We look forward to working with them again next year!

- Jennifer Marsanis | Magna Powertrain

 Extremely satisfied with the service & the food! We hired Cookery Catering for our company Christmas party and the food had our office raving about it well into the work week. The staff was professional, courteous & had left the kitchen cleaner than when they had entered it. Very impressed and would definitely recommend them for any occasion!”

- Keen Canada

______________________________________________________________________________

You can pay a caterer just to feed people or you can pay them to impress people. For the latter, you hire a caterer like Cookery as the staff are professional, presentation is excellent, delivery is prompt and ingredient quality is high. The food items themselves are quite unique among caterers in Toronto who generally offer uninspiring items that fail to leave an impression.”

- Brandon Sage | Landlord Property and Rental Management

 Great job the other night at the Walter Beauchamp Tailors and Beauchamp Gallery Christmas party. Thank you.”

 Recently, the Dr. G.W. Williams Secondary School in Aurora celebrated its 125th anniversary with a big Reunion of 1200 former students and staff. The luncheon committee did its homework in obtaining 3 quotes from caterers. Not only did Cookery Catering have the best price, they also had the best variety on the menu they offered. On the big day, they provided us with a buffet that amply fed the 385 alumni who had purchased a luncheon ticket. The setup, layout, access, and takedown all went smoothly. Most importantly, there were numerous comments about the quality, freshness, and taste of the food. I would highly recommend Cookery Catering.”

- Bob McRoberts | Reunion coordinator

"Cookery Catering by far surpasses other companies for three simple reasons: Quality Ingredients, Quality Preparation and Quality Service. They were fast, friendly and the food tasted beyond our expectations. We’ll definitely be using them again!"

- Frank | Big Fun Events, Toronto

Ryan joined the Cookery Catering team in the summer of 2012. Bringing an extensive skillset within the kitchen, his attention to detail and positive attitude makes Ryan a key component to our success.

If you are a regular at the Aurora Farmers Market on Saturday’s between the months of May and October, you probably recognize his familiar face selling our market inspired soups and preserves or behind the heat cooking up our seasonally influenced brunch options.

We would like to thank Ryan for his dedication to Cookery Catering; his consistent professionalism and hard work makes him an intricate member of our team.
