We used Elite Catering for our New Year's Eve wedding at St. Brigid's Centre for the Arts. Working with Chef Ric was by far the easiest part of wedding planning -- he totally understood our desire to focus on local foods and his team (especially his sous-chef Kristyn) were very accommodating of vegetarians, vegans, the need for gluten-free options and other allergies. It also meant a lot to us that any leftovers were donated to the Ottawa Mission and that Chef Ric is so connected with the community.

In the end we had local sausages (and tofurkey sausages), BBQ chicken (made with a local Broadhead stout!), mashed potatoes, roasted root veggies, local artisan bread and cornbread, apple gravy, beet salad, kale and spinach salad, saut
éed chard, homemade caramel corn (three kinds: traditional, with sea salt and a spicy option!) and at midnight, locally-made perogies. I'm drooling just thinking about it all.

Most importantly, everyone said the food was amazing! It's no wonder Chef Ric has won awards for his food.

In addition, the price was very reasonable.

Finally Chef Ric and his team were a dream to work with on the day, from them welcoming my friend who had made the cake, to Sammy graciously accommodating changing timelines to Erica patiently helping me re-arrange place cards.

I don't plan on getting married again, but if I did (or if I have another big catered event) I'll definitely be using Elite Catering.

Thanks again Ric!

Taylor and I just want to extend our biggest thanks to you and your staff for making our wedding day so much easier.

Everyone loved the buffet - the roast beef was tender and the tortellini was delicious.

Your staff went above and beyond!

Thank you again,
Laurie and Taylor

Hello Ric,

Everybody was very pleased with the food. The roast beef by the way was fantastic ! A very special thank you to Sammy, this kid was unbelievable....a real class act. To top things off, I asked him, once the meal was over, to let me know so that we would make the announcement to clear the tables. He immediately said that he did not want me to, that he would take care of things himself, that it was important to him that I relax and let him handle everything....which he did. I tried to argue with him but he insisted. I told him that I would tell you about his kindness and he appreciated that.

So once again Ric, on behalf of Linda, my family and friends, thank you so much ! As we have said to each other a couple of times.....what goes around, comes around !!

Linda and Rick Sawyer


Hi Ric,

Thank you and your staff for the delicious food and efficient service during our annual Bruyere and Primrose Holiday Party.

The guests really enjoyed the food last year, and you and your staff certainly lived up to those expectations this year. Everything was organized so well by your staff and the food including appetizers, main course, and desert was delicious!

I will certainly recommend Elite Catering again for next year's party.

Regards,
Ekta Lakhani
