Customizable Catering

The Challenge

Having been to numerous events ourselves we know that food can either make or break that special gathering. It’s a huge challenge getting the right mix of flavours, catering for dietary needs, and keeping costs within the budget. We recognize the challenge that customers face hence would like to work with you to find a solution that will make your event memorable.

The Solution

Partner with us! Using whole food ingredients we can design a menu that will tantalize your taste buds and make your event all the more memorable. We can also help set-up the venue, order crockery, staff the event and basically make sure everything runs well with the food dimension of your event.

Email Us Your Details

First gather together all the details for your event such a food ideas, how much you want to spend per head, location, whether you would want service etc. Send us those details via email.

Creative Consultation

Next step- a face to face consultation or phone call with you. We will help you brainstorm and articulate how you want your event to look/feel when it comes to food. Once all the details are hashed out we then go to work to design you a delicious menu.

We Make Your Food

Once you are happy with the menu, details are finalized and we get in the kitchen to make your food. All that’s left then is for you to relax and enjoy your event, knowing that you and your guests are going to be nourished and energized with amazing food!

Looking for fresh, creative and natural menu items for a special event or home delivery? Trying to find meal options for particular dietary needs such as gluten or lactose intolerance, vegan or Paleo diets, food sensitivities, or a GAPS, SCD or other specific dietary protocols? Look no further.

As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist I highly endorse the Water Shed Arts Cafe’s whole food approach and clear understanding of and tasty personalized creations for a wide range of dietary needs. And as a huge fan of family and celebration I couldn’t be happier with the amazingly delicious and health-filled food the Watershed has provided on the times we’ve had them cater for family weddings and other special events. Their blending of sound food and special diet knowledge with flavour and creativity makes the Watershed Arts Cafe’s Whole Food Customizable Catering both my own “go-to” choice for catering as well as my top recommended caterer for clients and friends.

What do we mean by whole foods?

Whole food is food that has been refined or processed as little as possible. We begin with whole foods and then showcase their flavours in dishes that bring life to the whole person – body, mind, soul and spirit. This approach to food enables us choose what is in our food and allows us to customize it to specific dietary needs.

We are so grateful to The Water Shed Arts Cafe for catering our wedding rehearsal dinner and reception desserts.  It was amazing to find a caterer who really understood a wide variety of dietary concerns and could take each and every one into account.  The food was fantastic, especially the desserts and cake which were beautifully crafted and SO delicious.  We continue to hear rave reviews from our guests! We highly recommend The Water Shed.

A word about costing

Many people underestimate the cost of catering. At the Water Shed we believe in whole food locally sourced ingredients therefore this quality is reflected in the cost of our food. Jenn will always design a menu for you in light of your budgetary needs and food desire. However please bear in mind that we will not cut corners and use ingredients that don’t reflect our value for good whole food.
