Looking for either a caterer or a private chef in Ottawa

Baelsette Dec 4, 2013 05:57 PM

Hi all,

I'm hoping to have a chef come over for a special occasion to prepare a dinner for 6 or, order a catered meal, high end.
I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations. I'm not from the Ottawa area so I'm a bit lost.
Thanks in advance!

    Hi there, I would suggest asking your question on the forum at ottawafoodies.com
    Ottawans aren't very active on this board, I've found, probably because we're lumped in to the same board as Toronto, so it gets to be a lot to trudge through.
    I can recommend some great Ottawa restaurants, but unfortunately don't have any knowledge on the private home chef front.
    Good luck! Hope you find someone up to the task and enjoy the city.

        I know of, but don't really know Jason Laurin in Ottawa. Here's his website, Essence Catering: http://www.essencecatering.ca/our-service-2/

        a bit of press: http://blogs.ottawacitizen.com/tag/jason-laurin/
