“When necessary, caterers are electricians, baby-sitters, carpenters, actors, plumbers, dieticians, veterinarians, coaches, hairstylists, traffic cops, designers, marriage counselors, psychiatrists, janitors, florists and miracle workers!” – Michael Roman

Michelle

Michelle’s penchant for cooking began at a young age.  Being raised on a dairy farm, and the youngest of five kids, good, pure food was an integral part of her upbringing.  Many evenings were spent in the garden with her Dad, weeding, swatting mosquitos, and learning how to grow organic, gorgeous vegetables.  In the kitchen, Michelle’s Mom was always baking, canning, and creating nutritious, fresh  meals for not only her family, but for many community events and organizations.

 

Michelle has had a varied culinary career, with stints in several restaurants, inns, and clubs. She spend two seasons as the chef aboard the Georgian Clipper, which took guests on a five day cruise through the Thousand Islands and Picton, and has catered to such varied guests as HRH Princess Anne, Jane Seymour, Gordon Lightfoot, The Trailer Park Boys, and Snoop Dogg, to name a few.

 

This has been the background of a creative, industrious caterer who turns basic, pure ingredients into creative, colourful, memorable food moments.  Together with her team, they are passionately committed to exceeding expectations with their food, service and teamwork.
