Testimonials

We are so proud of the work that we do for our friends, partners and the local community. Please take a moment to read what they have said about their experiences working with us at Growing Chefs! HQ:

"I wanted to reach out to thank each and every one of you for an exceptional evening of culinary exploration on Wednesday evening. Every participant absolutely loved learning about Growing Chefs. Your venue, your menu choices, and your hospitality and teaching were amazing. I will be passing along my positive experiences to everyone I know. 

Thanks for such a smooth running event; it was perfectly orchestrated! 

Some of the participants actually could not believe that the food on their plates was the food they prepared, they suggested (jokingly) that it was a bate and switch in the kitchen. It shows the impact your classes made on our pallets"  - Dolores B., INOAC 

“It was such a wonderful evening.  I have had lots of great feedback - everything from the wonderful staff, fantastic meal, great venue and Andrew's talk was very well received and appreciated!  I have 'hosted' a lot of these events and honestly, this one was my favourite!!!

I sincerely hope it helps garner new business as well as providing an understanding of what Growing Chefs! is all about. Again, thanks Jen for all your help and to all the wonderful staff at Growing Chefs!”- Gloria R., Westminster College Foundation

“I can't thank the two of you enough for making our Christmas party one of the best ever. From start to finish, Jen made planning, ordering and set up easy. During the event, Jen made sure everything went the way I had planned it and Marianne made sure everyone had a great time. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests and allow us to utilize all the space for our games and activities.

The staff absolutely loved the food, and how could they not? It was delicious and there was more than enough for everyone to eat. Family service style made the event that much more intimate and enjoyable.

 Everyone has already signed up to come to next year's Christmas party at Growing Chefs and we can't wait!”-Ashley S., Inspirit Residences
