    Exceptional!

    Our guests are still raving about the food! John is an exceptional chef and it was honestly one of the best meals I've had. Collective Kitchen was professional, responsive and when COVID required a change of plans they worked with us to find the best solution. I can't recommend them enough -- their food and service is beyond incredible. Thank you John and team!

    Mind blowing food!!!

    Johns food is absolutely incredible! Some of the best food I've ever eaten. Literally every guest at our wedding commented on how delicious the food was. The presentation of the dishes looked amazing. The ingredients tasted so fresh. John and his team exceeded all our expectations. I would highly recommend Collective Kitchen.

    Nayia, we are humbled by your incredible review. Thank you for taking the time to express your feedback. Your wedding was a beautiful celebration that we were so honoured to be a part of. We hope we can share our common passion for food with you in the future by catering for you once again.

    All the Best,

    Fantastic Wedding Food

    John and his team did an amazing job with our menu and food for our wedding day. Him and Carrie were quick to respond to emails and were always happy to answer any questions we had. We did a Casual BBQ and the food was amazing. Our guests have not been able to stop talking about how wonderful the burgers, canapés and desserts were! Highly recommend to anyone planning a wedding in the Whistler/Pemberton/Squamish area.

    Don’t even question it

    We had the collective kitchen at our engagement party and the food and service was absolutely amazing!!! Every guest loved the food and couldn’t stop talking about it afterwards. Am definitely considering hiring them as a caterer for our wedding.

    Amazing food

    John and his team catered my sons rustic outdoor wedding in Pemberton for 80 people. The food was outstanding , and the quality superb. The staff were friendly, professional and efficient. Dinner was served out in the meadow as a long table dinner, John and his team barbecued on site and did an amazing job. We had a pie bar for dessert, with a variety of delicious home made pies, and a taco bar for a late night snack that’s was such high quality, and so tasty. Guests have all been commenting on the amazing food. Would highly recommend, for creative tasty food.

    Perfection!

    John and his crew created an absolutely wonderful meal for our rural wedding, setting up their portable kitchen and turning our back yard into a 5-star restaurant! Service was impeccable, and guests raved about the food, with several people declaring it "the best wedding food I've ever had!"

    Omnivores, pescavores, vegetarians, and one guest with Celiac disease were all equally well-fed and cared for. Servers were courteous, professional, and attentive. Canapes, salads, sides, and main courses were all fresh, beautifully prepared, creative, and delicious, and glasses were kept full at all times.

    Thank you so much!
