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, sautéed
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
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
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
Thanks again Ric!
Shelley and Mike
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.
staff went above and beyond!
Thank you again,
Laurie and Taylor
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
Thank you and your staff for the delicious
