We had the chance to have Chef Phil and his team cater our wedding this past summer, and everything was fantastic! From the planning phase on, Phil was very easy to work with and responsive to all our questions. We worked together to build a menu of Canapés to be served during the cocktail reception, and every dish was executed perfectly. His team of waiters was very polite/professional and the service really exceeded our expectations. They cleaned up everything after the event and our place was left spotless. Thanks again Phil for playing a part in our special day, and making it stress free for both of us. Great guy, great food, great service. Ps. If you hire Phil for your wedding, ask him about the midnight snack Poutine Station 🙂

I've been fortunate enough to engage Phil a few times; first to help my clients celebrate their milestones with a five-course dinner, and last week with a party for 24 for my wife's 40th. I have never before worked with a Chef who was so dedicated and skilled AND friendly and easy to work with. His dishes speak for themselves but his personality will keep you working with him over and over. Why a meal with Phil is awesome: - He'll build around your requirements. A couple of months ahead of the date, he and I discussed the proteins that we were building around, any dietary restrictions, and he came back with an amazing suggested menu with a great mix of complementary flavours. He did three courses for us, but he can do parties of any size and has done five-course meals for my clients as well, always to rave reviews. - He knows more than just the food - If desired, he'll suggest the perfect wine pairings for your meals. - He makes it easy - Phil and his team brought all of the dishes, cutlery, glassware and napkins along with the food. He was able to work in the kitchen on-site (we were at a nice cottage in Lac Ste-Marie, QC) with everything prepared, which he finished and plated on-site. All that I had to do was make sure that there were enough tables and chairs for our guests. - Gorgeous presentation - See the photos - Professional and humble - Phil doesn't come with the huge ego that you often hear about with other high-profile chefs (check out the awards on his website!) His team was friendly, fabulous and Phil came out between each course to tell us about what went into each dish. Our meal (photos included): Appetizer - Pan seared Haloumi cheese served with a baby heirloom tomato and beet salad, Chive oil, baby tomato jam and grapefruit pearls Main - 24 hour beef short ribs served on a bead of creamy goat cheese mashed potatoes, heirloom carrots and beef jus. Dessert - Freshly picked apple terrine with vanilla mille-feuille, dulce de leche and crème Chantilly The flavours: Appetizer - Perfect balance of savoury and sweet. Something about the chive oil and the haloumi was magical. Main - The short ribs fell right off the bone with a touch of the fork. Perfect. I was shocked at how good the veggies and mash were too, not just window dressing! As one friend said "now I'm going to mash everything with goat cheese after this." Dessert - Delicate and sweet. The honeycomb flourish made it beautiful to look at, too. Paired perfectly with some aged port. Thank you, Phil! You'll be hearing from me again many times in the future!

We hired Chef Phil to cater 15 lunches for 50 people over the course of a month. We were consistently impressed by his care, creativity and culinary expertise. Every dish was delicious and delivered on time. He was careful about dietary preferences and allergies, and came up with stunning ways of using every part of an ingredient to reduce food waste. Phil was a joy to work with and the love that he has for his craft shines through in every bite.

On Saturday May 14th we had the pleasure of having Chef Phil come and cook the most wonderful 6 course meal for a group of 10 for my husbands 60th birthday at our cottage. The food was exquisitely prepared and extremely tasteful with a wonderful variety of flavors. I can not say enough about Chef Phil and highly recommend him. I also would like to thank his assistant Tamara for her professional and pleasant service. Thank you for coming all that way to give us the most wonderful experience. Carole
