Exceptional Wedding Caterer!

Chau was our wedding caterer and they did an exceptional job of both creating and delivering a custom Korean-inspired menu for our wedding cocktail hour and reception buffet! It was very important for my husband and I to have elements of our Korean culture represented in the food served in our wedding and Chau’s ability to incorporate elements of the flavours we wanted into the menu is a testament to their skill and creativity as a caterer.

Their responsiveness and professionalism when working with us to create the ideal menu and handling unexpected problems during the planning process were wonderful and demonstrated their dedication to making sure everything ran smoothly on our wedding day. On the day of the wedding, the food was presented beautifully, and our wedding guests could not stop raving about how delicious everything tasted. In particular, the Korean Chicken Baos and Korean popcorn chicken appetizers were very popular and went out fast!

We highly recommend their catering services as Jane, Ashley and the rest of the Chau team will work hard to create a custom menu that perfectly fits your tastes and preferences and deliver an unforgettable food experience at your wedding!

Good experience with Chau caterer

Chau recommended us a very good menu. All the guests loved the food. She came on time and served the wedding with a very professional manner. She is extremely friendly too.

Astounding, best wedding food ever!

We contacted Jane at Chau to cater our backyard wedding reception for 60 guests. We were blown away by how amazing the food was! Not a single guest didn't come up to us to rave about how delicious the food was and that it was easily the best food that they'd had at a wedding! Jane was great to communicate with and accommodating for changes we had for the menu. Her and her team also managed to do it all in a residential kitchen, the food was served hot, and it was perfectly cooked. All the dishes were familiar enough for the pickiest guests, but adventurous enough that everyone was excited to go back for seconds. Jane was also extremely collaborative and accommodating when our dates and plans were changing constantly due to COVID restrictions and the service went off safely and smoothly. If I ever get married again, you can bet I'll be calling on Jane and the team at Chau!

Dream caterer

Chau was everything we could ask for in a caterer for our wedding of about 180 guests.
Firstly, the food: Chef Jane has a scrumptious Asian fusion menu that we were in love with at first sight, we had a tough time narrowing down the menu for our hors d'oevres and buffet style dinner.
Second, the service: Chau was amazingly flexible and accommodating with our specific requests. We had a variety of options for halal dishes, vegetarian, and gluten free. Jane Peters, the business manager, was also so sweet and put aside the hors d'oeuvres for us during cocktail hour because they knew we would get so busy and likely miss out otherwise. At the end of the night they also provided the two of us with our own personalized late night snacks.
Thirdly, logistics: Chau was very professional, thorough, and knowledgeable in working with our venue and asking the right questions so that things would run smoothly on the day of.
Lastly, aesthetics: the food looked great! We had some Korean chicken poppers that were served in compostable cones which were so cute and we loved the environmentally sustainable aspect. Chau also provided us with cute, custom to our theme, signs for each buffet dish.
We're looking forward to holding another event when we can get them to cater for us again.
Photos are from our tasting, we unfortunately forgot to ask the photographers to take photos of the food.

Couldn't have been happier with Chau!

We got so many compliments on our food! Chau came up with a wonderful custom, all vegetarian menu for us that we just loved. Two food stations: a bao stand and a dumpling stand, plus a salad station and passed appetizers. Plus they staffed our bar with a great bartender who whipped up our custom cocktail menu expertly. It was nothing like any other wedding food we've ever had and it was all super delicious. Highly recommended.

One of the most memorable parts

The food was so delicious. She was really good at understanding what flavours I really wanted and how to make the different foods I liked into dishes I would love. She was so creative with the different flavours playing together. I appreciated that I was able to tell her just what I liked flavour wise and she was able to make the dishes and come up with something that fit perfectly. I had no idea what to have as dishes and I wanted something other than the traditional steak or chicken. Jane was able to come up with something and it was great being able to trust her to do so. I only plan on getting married once hahaha but I would gladly have her cook for other occasions if I can. Would defiantly recommend her to other couples.

Professional, creative, lovely to deal with, delicious!

Chau's food is delicious. It's yummy. Months later, I'm still thinking about it. Jane Tran and her team are creative, hardworking, and were with us every step of the way in our complicated, lots-of-moving-parts wedding. On the day, Chau overcame a number of setbacks to deliver a delicious wedding brunch, and displayed a commitment to quality of service that was meaningful and far beyond what they were initially asked to do. We plan to use Chau again if/when we need to cater future events. You should too.

We really wanted the food to be special at our wedding -- we are vegetarians who love to eat! Chau was part of our complicated, many-moving-parts wedding from start to finish. Some of the great things Chau did:

- Jane helped us design a creative vegetarian brunch menu from the ground up (she had us at chilaquiles!)
- Jane and co. coordinated with us over the two years before our wedding which got delayed due to COVID
- Chau rolled with our many quirky requests, and (helpfully!) gave us the benefit of their experience to steer us away from some dodgy ideas
- Jane suggested a menu tweak that saved us from having to cut a dish when we were hit with an unforeseen cost
- Jane and her team overcame a number of nightmarish obstacles (power failure in the kitchen! broken ovens, dodgy power outlets) to deliver a brunch our guests loved
- Jane and Ashley went above and beyond on the day of the wedding to help the day run smoothly. We are grateful to Ashley especially for her consummate commitment to quality -- she really stepped up in a way that she didn't have to
- the scones were indeed "moist af"

The only thing I would note is that after our wedding, Chau sent us a bill that was materially larger than we expected. We discussed it, and the bill was cut down. Notwithstanding this, I would still recommend Chau to anyone who wants good food! We plan to call Chau anytime we need catering again.

Chau was the Star of the day!

We feel so fortunately that we found Chau. They have truly made our wedding reception dream come true. Everyone LOVED the food and was so impressed at the taste, quality, and uniqueness. Many guests told me this was the best wedding dinner they have ever had, and even the photographer (who has been to a lot of weddings) was super impressed! I am so bummed that I didn’t get to eat more at the dinner :( Jane was able to combine our hometowns’ taste and our favourite cuisine together to make a reception that reflects who we are! She took detailed notes throughout tasting and venue visit, and our feedback was reflected in the final reception.

Amazing experience with Chau!

My fiance and I were over the moon happy with the service we received from Jane and the team at Chau! We worked with Chau for our traditional Vietnamese engagement ceremony and from beginning to end, the experience was smooth and pleasant. We asked for a menu that was inspired by Vietnamese flavours and Jane and her team came up with an amazing spread. Everyone at the party raved about the food. Some even went for thirds! Besides the delicious eats, Jane and her team were incredibly attentive to our family, our guests, and made sure their needs were met. They arrived on time, served fresh and tasty food right in our kitchen, and were a calming presence during a busy day. We would recommend Chau's services in a heartbeat!

Hi, I’m Jane. Well Jane 1 to be exact. I’m the culinary brains behind Chau and have been working in the food industry, basically all of my life. I love attending weddings, but loathe the traditional wedding food. I have a passion for creating custom menus which reflect the couple getting married. When I got married to my husband, we found it impossible to find a caterer which could create a custom Scottish/English and Vietnamese/Chinese menu which reflect our heritage. In the end, I catered my own wedding (yup that's me all dolled up with a butchers apron carving our roast) and decided then and there, that I would specialize in creating custom wedding menus which reflect each couple’s unique ethnicity & palates.

I have been in the service industry for 10 years now and every day is something new still!

I love every aspect of my job with the experiences, surprises and relationships it brings.

I specialize in event coordinating, but have also lead multiple cocktail bars and fine dining restaurants here in Toronto. My experience ranges in all styles of service and several different event programs.

I would love to help you make your day special!

….. And I’m Jane 2. I’m the bumbling brawn and sometimes brilliant assistant at Chau and have been eating all my life. I’ve only attended 2 weddings - both my own - so I come to the wedding catering business with no bad habits. I have always been fascinated with how excellent food affects mood and elevates celebrations. Seeing people relish something that I have helped to craft for them (in whatever capacity) creates a feeling for me that is difficult to describe - I have been honoured to nourish you and be involved in your special moment. Whether at a casual festival or a posh and dignified wedding, the interaction between idea and substance is the same: come and eat - we welcome you.
