Catering Vancouver: Savoury City

We’re custom caterers in Vancouver, creating food tailor-made to your tastes and desires with passion, drive and a caring nature that could only be ascribed to good parenting…

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.

Food is our Passion

Donna Wadsworth, Vancouver Catering Specialist

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.

 

Food Philosophy

We’re all about local, having solid relationships with some of the best food producers outside of Vancouver BC. and, as an Ocean Wise partner, we’re also committed to using sustainable, ocean-friendly seafood.

You’ll find us willing to assist in anyway we can in bringing your event to life. We have experienced Event Planners standing-by ready to answer questions and take your order at or simply complete this form and we’ll respond – Pronto!

Life’s An Existential Banquet

The other evening, I was rewatching the great Rosalind Russell in the classic 1958 version of Auntie Mame (I’m mildly obsessed with the film). Her oft-repeated motto in the film is “life’s a banquet, and some poor bastards are starving to death.” That’s a doozy of a line! In fact, it’s one of the best I’ve heard, and somehow evocative of Shakespeare’s famous passage: “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”

 

From Cavemen to Louis the 14th

Indeed, theatrics and food seem to have always gone hand in hand. From early-man telling stories around a freshly hunted, fire-roasted animal, to the ornate and elaborate dinners at the court of Louis the 14th, to modern-day restaurants like Eleven Madison Park, or El Celler de Can Roca, spectacle has been a central element to the dining experience.

 

Staging the Fantasy

Having catered countless events over the years, what we know for sure is that pulling off a wedding is tantamount to staging a Broadway show–just slightly more complicated! It’s a production, and like any show, it’s only successful if the audience accepts the fantasy and is willing to suspend reality.

If a character forgets a line or a piece of the set is knocked over, we are suddenly thrust out of the play-world and into the real one.

 

Organized Chaos

Just like actors, caterers are only successful if they maintain the fantasy–the illusion that the food magically appears perfectly prepared and on time. What guests don’t see (and shouldn’t) is the “organized chaos” that occurs behind the culinary curtain.
