A successful company that has a combined 40 plus years of dining experience. If you are looking for a caterer that will serve you and your guests food that you will remember for years to come, then you have found the right one, offering mouthwatering menus prepared by master Red Seal chefs.


Simon grew up in England, beginning his career by attending Derwentside Culinary School and Newcastle Culinary School. He graduated both with honours, which jumpstarted his career as a commis chef with Mount Charlotte hotels. He quickly became the chef within a few years, during which he won local and national level competitions. He became a reputable catering manager for Trust House Forte Group and then decided to immigrate to Canada. He accomplished all this by the age of 24. He worked as a Sous Chef for the hotel chain, Westin Hotel & Resorts, in Toronto. A year later, he became a food consultant, greatly improving food standards and concentrating on healthy foods. He then became a Culinary Arts Teacher in 1992, coaching students who would go on to win medals in the beverage, restaurant, and culinary services. His qualifications match renowned chefs, such as Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay.

Oh my soul! What an amazing find. My mom was thinking of cooking our wedding meal but last minute decided to find a caterer. She reached out to Created Not Catered through Wedding Wire and had a quick response from Adrian. We were able to meet up with Adrian to discuss the ins and outs of their service and food choices. We have many dietary restrictions on both sides of the family and they easily catered to our needs. Would hire this team back in a heart beat! They were so friendly, funny and the food was outstanding. Nothing but love for these guys!

Simon and Adrian where amazing to work with. They put my mind at ease and delivered a fantastic elegant BBQ dinner for my guest. With 4 months out, they assured me that they could deliver a great meal. Which they did! If we could go back in time I would pick them all over again. Absolutely amazing to work with.

Delicious Beyond Compare

Simon and his crew went above and beyond catering our wedding! We chose the Simply Stunning Buffet, and we were not disappointed!
Food prepared on site, it was fresh, hot and delicious! We have had so many compliments from our guests about how amazing the food was!
From our first meeting, to the last bite of our taco bar, dealing with Simon was an absolute pleasure. If we could give more than 5 stars we would!!
Thank you Simon for making our reception so memorable!

The most amazing experience!

Simon catered our event on Saturday, September 16, 2023, at the Gibson Centre in Alliston. He was incredibly easy-going and a pleasure to communicate with throughout the planning process. Simon arranged a delightful buffet with a wide variety of food options. We received nothing but praise from our wedding guests; many said it was the best wedding meal they had ever tasted. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the catering.

We wholeheartedly recommend Simon to anyone seeking catering services.

I couldn't be more pleased with the experience we had with Created Not Catered. The menu selection was excellent. They were willing to modify recipes because of food allergies and the food was absolutely delicious! The wedding was at our home and they prepped and cooked all the food there. They were respectful and professional at all times throughout the day even though we were continuously in their "work space". They had a great sense of humour and our guests had a wonderful time interacting with them throughout the event. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a caterer for a wedding or otherwise. Exceptional!
