With Canada’s birthday around the corner, Toronto’s catering scene has seen a surge in Canadian inspired menus. From creative dishes featuring Canadian ingredients to new spins on staple foods, we found that patriotic dishes are trending this summer.
Our Home and Native Land has inspired us to share five of our favourite truly Canadian inspired hors d’oeuvres that have made waves on this summer’s hottest event and wedding menus.

What it takes to cater and plan one of Toronto’s largest milestone sporting events.
THE HUDDLE A MILESTONE EVENT
Giving fans a chance to hang out with some of their favorite athletes, the Grey Cup kickoff party is the ultimate event for football enthusiasts across Canada. With 104 years of history, it’s amassed plenty of attention. This kickoff was particularly special as it returned to Toronto, the city where the first championship for the Grey Cup was played in 1909.

It’s that time of the year! Everyone is either trying to lose all that holiday weight or make up for all the money they spent over the holidays; of course, it’s also the season of love and weddings to come! In recent years, as a direct result of globalization, we’ve been seeing more and more people from different parts of the world with different backgrounds fall in love and celebrate their union with a wedding here in Toronto. While multicultural unions are not new, they are becoming increasingly common; this has made them a hot topic in Toronto’s wedding catering scene.
For any wedding, it is imperative that everything come together seamlessly; multicultural unions bring the additional challenge of integrating both (or all) cultures in the celebration so that they’re equally represented. Barring the décor, the music, and the drinks, the wedding menu is an infallible way to guarantee a fusion of cultures and incredible flavours. Regardless of which Toronto Catering company you choose to work with, we highly recommend using a custom caterer that is capable of designing a wedding menu that is unique to you and representative of your heritage.
We cater weddings all around Toronto and each one is unique and special for its own reasons. What made this particular Toronto wedding special for us was that it was for our very own sous-chef Hillary Brown and her husband Carmel Joseph Cuschieri.
Steam Whistle weddings are gorgeous. The indoor and outdoor spaces work perfectly for both rustic and chic weddings. The Beer Hall alone can entertain anywhere between 250 to 500 guest depending on if you do a sit down or reception. You don’t need a large group to get married there, Steam Whistle Brewing is happy to entertain groups as small as 30. Hillary and Carmel Joseph’s wedding was for 120 invitees.
