Chris Pires catered our engagement party for 65 people and the food and service were a huge success. The food Chris prepared was absolutely delicious and his recommendations based on our preferences aligned perfectly. Chris and his team were calm, kind and professional. The team was efficient and always ensured all our guests were taken care of. Chris and his team left the venue clean and ensured leftovers were available for our guests. Our guests were satisfied and continuously commented on how fabulous the food and service was. Thank you again for everything! Adam & Chantel

Karen wrote – Professional Chef Services – Bridal Shower

Dealing with Chris was absolutely a wonderful experience. He always responds to emails and together we were able to easily plan the bridal shower I hosted in my home. Chris showed up and came prepared and continued to proceed with his job in a timely and efficient manner. He is very knowledgeable, accommodating, and skilled at his job, and thoroughly enjoys what he does. The food was prepared so well, and so deliciously, and all the guests were delighted with their meals, as well as the short demonstration entertainment he provided. Definitely a delight from beginning to end! Thanks, Chris, […]

Connie and Vito wrote – Professional Chef Services – Groomsmen’s Breakfast

I had hired Chef Chris Pires for the morning of my sons Wedding Day… provide breakfast for the Groomsmen and the Grooms close immediate family. First things first, lets talk about time…Chef Chris is so well organized and made sure that he arrived at least 1/2 hr earlier in order to set up and prep for the breakfast. The guests commented on how delicious the food was….For our main menu we decided on an omellete station; crepes; and a variety of smoothies. He also plans ahead to ensure there is enough assistance (which he hired Linda as his assistant) for […]

Janet wrote – Professional Chef Services – 50th Birthday Party, Interactive

Earlier this month, Chris catered a 50th birthday dinner at my house. He was very flexible with the menu, added some nice surprises, and showed up right on time with everything he needed. Not only did he provide a fantastic selection of food from appetizers through to desserts (his curry dishes are amazing!), but he was also very informative with some great tips, and very entertaining throughout the evening. Chris is a fantastic chef with a great sense of humour and an easy going nature that made the evening fun and relaxed. And he cleaned up my kitchen before he […]

Fast and Easy – Buttermilk Biscuits

You need to know how to make a good biscuit. There are tons of recipes out there but this is a lovely tasty and versatile recipe. In other words, if you can make this, it can be an accompaniment to a soup, a dish with gravy/sauce, a breakfast addition – well you get the idea.  You can also impress the heck out of friends and family – everyone loves a biscuit! It does contain buttermilk, but don’t let that deter you. My rule is if it contains buttermilk in the title of the recipe, I recommend buying ready-made buttermilk. If […]

Doris wrote – Personal Chef Services – Birthday Bash

A few weeks ago we were celebrating my husbands 60th birthday. We had the pleasure and privilege of having Chris come to our home to prepare dinner. There were ten of us in total with different food tastes. Chris was kind enough to accommodate us with two different meals. Guests had the option of either beef or chicken. Both were delicious. The appetizers were also a special treat and dessert, well enough could not be said about the cheesecake. Compliments to the chef were flowing that night and even the days following. Having a clean kitchen after dinner was an […]

Theresa wrote – Personal Chef Services – Annual Ladies Night Dinner

Chris was the personal Chef for my annual ladies dinner party.  He started by helping me select a great menu that took into account the special dietary needs of my guests. Chris took special care in all the details of the evening, by starting out with a surprise hors d ‘oeuvres – an amuse bouche, created with my guests and myself in mind. This was followed by the appetizer and a pallet cleanser before heading into the main course. Beautiful presentation of the food, quality and of course the taste… everything was mouthwatering and delicious. The Crème Brulee cheesecake was […]

Martin and Terry wrote – Personal Chef Services – Engagement Party for 60

Chris Pires took care of the catering for an engagement party we recently hosted for my daughter and her fiancé and played a major role in making the evening a huge success! From the beginning of the planning process Chris made excellent recommendations and along the way he was flexible and accommodating of any changes or requests we made. Chris also assisted with other details (rentals etc) which reduced our pre event stress considerably. The day of the actual party Chris was a calm, competent presence in the background as he and sous chef Maria prepared all the food. Every […]

Chris was such a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to create an outstanding menu for my Mom’s Retirement Dinner. What impressed me the most about Chris, was how much consideration and care went into ensuring that our day went smoothly, both in regards to food and the other aspects we needed his help with. Thank you again Chris, for helping us to make this experience happen! The salmon was my absolute favorite and I can’t wait to work with you again! Amanda
