Catering Expertise

Sandwich for corporate catering

Corporate Catering

We bring a great deal of care to crafting the perfect sandwich. From house-baked breads to slow roasted proteins and vegan options, we have something to please every palate. Breakfast catering, boxed lunches for the bus trip to Whistler or a hot boardroom dinner for that important presentation are a specialty.

Wedding Catering

From traditional wedding catering of 4 course plated dinners to causal picnics at the beach, we’ve catered weddings of every style and stripe with great success. We would love the opportunity to interpret your vision for your day with alternative wedding ideas that will delight you, and have your guests raving.

 

Friends toasting with a glass of wine

Social Event Catering

Whenever friends and family gather to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, baby shower, house warming or retirement party is an opportunity to have great catering.  We can tailor a menu for groups as small as two or as large as two thousand with rentals and service staff to compliment if you so desire.

Experience

Greetings, my name is Donna, and I’m the “Head Honcho” of Savoury City. I’ve dedicated my career to the catering industry working as a chef, event planner and catering business owner for over 30 years – And yes, I’m still loving it!

Savoury City Catering began life in 2003, and our goal has always been to work tirelessly to provide a level of food and service that is uncompromising.

Preparing for and Recovering from Event Disasters!

As veterans in the catering industry, we’ve seen it all–and we mean everything. Because of our extensive experience, we’ve learned how to prepare for almost any contingency, twist and turn, and glitch (and they always occur)! However, as careful as we are with making sure we’ve got you covered on our end, we can’t always plan other aspects of your wedding that fall outside of our purview. So, in your best interests, (and, let’s face it, ours too), we thought it would be helpful to talk about how to avoid, and recover from, event disasters.

 

The Reluctant Vegetarians

According to Wikipedia,13% of Americans are either vegetarian or vegan, and we suspect that percentage is much higher in Vancouver. What Wiki doesn’t tell you is that for some reason these non-meat eaters will not disclose their dietary predilection when responding to your wedding invitation! Because of this, it’s best to assume that, on average,10% of your guests are vegetarians but have not come out of the legume closet yet.

 

Get Saucy!

The best way to prevent any vegetarian or vegan related incidents (like bad-vibes or negative chi) is to always have a backup plan. We recommend designing a menu that works for everyone. For example, create a stock or sauce that is vegetable-based. Then you can add meat to 90% of it, while reserving 10%, sans-meat, for backup. Problem solved. Chi restored.

 

Da Plane, Da Plane!

While a wedding at a family farm in the valley or Bowen Island is surely romantic and gorgeous, it’s always important to do a site inspection before the event in order to get the lay of the land. It’s best to take the “desert island approach” when it comes to booking these types of venues.  In short, not every venue will be Fantasy Island–no Ricardo Montalban or Tattoo waiting for you on a fully operational and luxurious remote locale. Make sure that your venue has proper power sources, lighting, washrooms, access to water and vehicle access.
