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.

Despite the arctic freeze hovering over Toronto this winter, our Executive Chef Karen O’Connor along with Executive Pastry Chef Bonnie Kravitz and our amazing culinary team have not been hibernating! The kitchen has been humming with the ideas brought forward from our eager Menu Committee, consisting of sales and culinary staff, all dedicated to the creation of Scrumptious! Inspiration came from the colour and anticipation of spring and summer produce, and fresh ideas were molded into the new event catering menu, lovingly perfected in our kitchens.

For the Salvage event at Metropolis we pulled out one of our newest desserts: Chocolate Pudding with Smoked Whipped Cream and Toffee Crunch. That’s right, smoked whipped cream. It was a hit at the event and now we’re eager to show you how it’s done.

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.
