The Ontario Heritage Act works to protect buildings with historical significance. As a result, Toronto has managed to preserve its stunning architectural history going as far back as 1794. Many of these heritage buildings now serve as beautiful wedding venues that might be perfect for your special day.
Each heritage venue has its own charm. Rich history and stories are rooted within their walls, each boasting unique architectural designs – some with red brick and stone foundations, others with weathered wood or exposed steel beams. When it comes to finding the perfect wedding venue, Toronto has plenty of hidden gems across the city that will help bring your dream wedding come to life.
To help get your venue search started, here is a list of five historic wedding venues that Toronto has to offer.
On October 2nd, 2018, we catered the first New Roots Dinner Series in six unique locations in Toronto, Daniel et Daniel served a total of 130 guests and utilized ingredients grown around Cabbagetown.
The purpose of this pop-up dinner series was to secure funding for Green Thumbs Growing Kids, a local charity that promotes environmental and nutritional education based around school gardens. Their mission is to reconnect society with real whole natural food by teaching children how to grow fruits and vegetables locally.
After the success of last years dinners, the New Roots Dinner Series will be returning to Cabbagetown. Working closely with Green Thumbs to keep tabs on what’s growing, Executive Chef Karen O’Connor alongside Executive Pastry Chef Bonnie Kravitz, will develop a catering menu that not only utilizes fresh produce from the school gardens but also features their flavours making them the star of each dish.
Dine with us on Tuesday, August 20th, 2019 at one of four unique venues located in Cabbagetown: Riverdale Farms, Toronto Dance Theatre, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, and Allan Gardens Children’s Conservatory. Complete with a cocktail reception and a gourmet four-course meal, it’s going to be a dinner experience you wouldn’t want to miss!
If you’ve hosted a small event in the past, you know how much time and energy is required make it successful, before, during and after the event.
At one point, you may have considered preparing the food yourself, but you are either short on time, require special kitchen equipment, or simply because you want to relax and interact with your guests rather than be pre-occupied in the kitchen.
From festive holiday dinners to a lavish engagement party with your closest friends and family, hiring a top caterer for your small event will save you plenty of time and energy. From creating a menu to making sure your guests are happy and comfortable, it will allow you to enjoy your own event as though you were a guest, providing you with an overall stress-free experience.

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, is all too often, overlooked, rushed and/or unhealthy.
If you’re planning a morning event that includes breakfast catering whether it be a meeting, conference, seminar, workshop or anything else, your goal for breakfast should be to energize, engage and get participants ready to participate.
Unfortunately, mainstream breakfast options are often carb heavy, primarily consisting of an unequal balance of baked goods, bread heavy egg-sandwiches and whole fruit platters. These breakfasts lead participants to consume unhealthy amount of carbs causing them to be sluggish and to compensate with copious amounts of caffeine. Is this starting to sound familiar?
