Delighted and Ecstatic!!!!
My wedding is not until July,2021 but we had Chef Bob Friesen for wedding tasting dinner at my future in-laws house. We are all pleased with the way Chef prepared the meal for us, he is very attentive, professional and my fiance's family loved him. It is really a good experience to have him.The foods are amazing,and we are overwhelmingly pleased with the whole experience. We cannot wait for the wedding day to come and have him as a Chef and have his team to cater our wedding.

Everything was perfect!
Planning a wedding is the worst! It's so stressful and you're constantly wondering if you're guests will enjoy themselves. With Bob as my caterer, I'm not worried at all! It was the greatest pleasure to have him in my home for a tasting for my wedding. The presentation was beautiful, perfect for my venue and date, and the food was so good! They were so polite and comfortable and they made me comfortable being in my home. I can't wait till my wedding to eat more!Sent on 28/05/2021

Absolutely Amazing Experience!
Chef Bob was an absolute pleasure to work with. My partner and I got engaged and planned a wedding within a month, which is stressful enough, and were worried about obtaining excellent food for us and our guests in such a short time frame. With Chef Bob and his team, food and service was something we didn’t have to worry about in the slightest. He was so attentive to our wants and needs, even fulfilling a few last minute requests with apparent ease.Sent on 28/09/2021
The food was EXCEPTIONAL. Our guests are still raving about it! We had a formal four course sit down dinner after an array of Hors D’Oeuvres, with each course tasting even better the last. My husband being a chef was skeptical at first, but now has nothing but praise for our entire experience. We capped it off with a lovely coffee station to wake us up from our delicious food coma just in time to get the party started.
Even better than the quality of food (which was amazing, so that’s saying something) was the service of his staff. From the chefs, to the servers to the bartenders, each and every one of them were kind and knowledgeable, treating every guest with the utmost respect and giving us as all a wonderful experience.
Thank you so much to Chef Bob and your entire team for making our wedding day the day of our dreams, a day we will never forget. We are truly grateful for all of you, from the bottom of our hearts.
With love, the Fazackerley-Slat newlyweds.

More than I was expecting!
Chef Bob & his team are absolutely incredible. He catered our wedding & from day one he was so responsive, friendly & organized. He thought of things that I didn’t think of. He was extremely flexible with all of my COVID changes, going from 175 people to 50 to 25, he didn’t bat an eye, even two weeks before when we completely changed venues, he had no problem with that & made it work perfectly. He came with bartenders as well which was an added bonus! Highly highly recommend hiring Bob for any party you have. We look forward to working with him in the future! Don’t look any further than Bob, you won’t regret it!Sent on 11/07/2021

The best meal we ever had!!
I used Gourmet Chef to cater my wedding and it could not have been more perfect. Bob was incredibly helpful throughout the planning process - helping me navigate rental items, finding creative ways to shave dollars off the budget here and there, etc... I truly felt like I had a partner working alongside me, looking out for my best interests and personally invested in making sure my day was absolutely perfect.THE FOOD! The food was mindblowingly good - I think every single guest followed up with us at some point after the wedding to let us know it was *the best* wedding meal they have ever had - and for some, the best meal they ever had, full stop. My sister even went home the next night and tried to recreate one of the dishes, she loved it that much. My deepest gratitude to this entire team of talented chefs and hospitality staff - you truly took every shred of stress or anxiety I had and turned it into pure joy. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I hope I have the opportunity to throw another event, just so I have reason to cross paths with Bob and his team again.Sent on 02/08/2021
