The ASAE holds an annual conference at different locations every year. This year, timed with Canada’s 150th Anniversary, the ASAE selected Toronto to host their event. With over 2,000 planned international attendees, we wanted to give ASAE members a truly Canadian culinary experience.

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.

Winter seems to have morphed into summer in a mere two weeks and we’re thrilled to say good-bye to our Sorels and winter jackets (at least until December). We’ve been celebrating in our kitchens by developing and tasting new menu items that embody the new season and the months ahead. We’ve come up with new hors d’oeuvre, first courses, mains, stations and desserts and hope you’ll be just as excited about them as we are.

With Daniel et Daniel, vegetarians have never been considered second-class party guests. We take pride in the fact that our vegetarian selections are as lovingly prepared and delicious as the rest of our creations. When it comes to showcasing local seasonal ingredients in our menu, there is no better place than a vegetarian dish where they take centre stage.

Being a Preferred Caterer at so many of the city’s amazing venues makes us a lucky bunch. MaRS Discovery District has always been a big supporter of local and the environmentally aware. MaRS, along with Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery, recently invited all of MaRS’ preferred suppliers to learn more about wine and to sample some of those that Ontario has to offer. Upon arriving, we were invited into the old farm house on Pelham Road and escorted to the basement wine boutique. Always looking for new wines (and old favourites) to pair with our dishes, our palates were immediately awakened by a glass of Cuvée Catharine Rosé Brut as the difficult task of tasting wines began.
