    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!

    Chau's reply:

    OMG!!! We're blushing! Thanks for the very kind review, it was such a pleasure feeding you and your guests. We had a blast putting together your Asian leaning menu and we are glad our Mac and Cheese met your high standards. We hope to feed you again soon!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Great service and incredible food!

    We were so delighted with Chau for our wedding party this past September. We had about 100 guests at our party, held at a brewery in Toronto. A number of our guests had dietary needs (Vegan, gluten-free, celiac) and Jane and her team were able to create delicious options to meet everyone's needs. The menu was thoughtfully tailored to our tastes - we had an incredible BBQ station, with a generous array of custom BBQ sauces, with vegan options as well. We really loved the bao station, as did our friends! Something out of the ordinary that our guests still mention! The salads were creative, colourful and so flavourful. Jane was so kind to come and find us each time a food station opened, so that we could be the first at the station; this guided our guests to the next delicious delicacy and also ensured we got to eat! The set up and take down seemed to happen as if by magic, although I know a great deal of work went into it. Jane is a superbly talented chef; she and her team are so friendly, professional and kind. It was a pleasure working with everyone, from the early planning stages, to the tasting, meetings with our venue and of course the night itself! Thanks Jane, and everyone at Chau!

    Chau's reply:

    Hey Kim!
    Thank you so much for these kind words! We were so happy to be a part of your special day and making it as memorable as possible for you both.

    Cheers!

    Every guest was happy and Jane was so helpful!

    We wanted a meal that would be interesting enough for the foodies but not too scary for the meat and potato folk, and Jane was able to toe that line perfectly with an Asian fusion buffet! She easily accommodated our requests or guided us to better options, and was lovely throughout the process (basically acting as wedding planner and therapist I might add!). Her staff was also great on the day. Warm and great attention to detail. I just wish I had time to eat more in all the excitement of the day. Thanks Jane and crew!

    Chau's reply:

    Thank you Erika!
    We really enjoyed working with you to design a menu that suited your exact vision for your wedding.
    It was also an absolute pleasure to feed you and your guests on the big day and we are very happy that you enjoyed everything.

    We look forward to seeing your smiling face again soon!

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

….. 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.
