“Just a short note to tell you how much we loved the Mexican meatloaf tonight. Those are the fluffiest mashed potatoes ever! Our son has decided that you are the best cook ever…next to me (And I think he is just trying hard not to hurt my feelings!!) If I haven’t told you recently… your Personal Chef service is absolutely the best thing we have done in a very long time to make our lives a whole lot less stressful and whole lot more tasty!”

R Bakare (Calgary, AB)

“Thank you so much for dinner last night. You are an amazing Chef and you made the dinner party so fun! I will definitely keep you in mind for further parties and recommend you highly!”

V Hertz (Calgary, AB)

“From our first meeting with Aelie we were very impressed with her professionalism and her flexibility to work with our personal preferences. We were both following the Dr. Bernstein, diet which is quite limited and restricted. Aelie worked with us to develop a great menu that was interesting and tasty and, most important to us, complied with our diet restrictions. I would highly recommend Aelie to anyone looking to taking some of the stress of meal planning out of their lives”

S Schulz (Calgary, AB)

“Thanks so much to you and Paul for taking care of us so well at the party last night. Everyone loved your food and the way you presented it was wonderful. We all had a great time! The next time we're planning a party I know who I'm going to call. Thanks again!”

S Fordyce (Calgary, AB)

“Thanks for the best meal I've ever had - not just the food (which was superb!) but you made it so much fun too. Also thanks for the extra Crème Brulee - I thoroughly enjoyed it for dessert yesterday. We will definitely keep you in mind for the future and will recommend you to others.”

C Nahnybida (Langdon, AB)

“Thank you for creating a spectacular meal and for making my sister and her husband an incredible night. My sister called last night and described everything as UNBELIEVABLY FABULOUS!!! And that they could not be happier. They said ‘this is 100 times better than going to a restaurant. Your privacy, and your relaxation is endless’ My sister said ‘it is the best gift she could have received’ and basically she could not get over it.

The food was terrific they said and that if they had another hole in their stomach they could of had twice the amount of the starter and salad. They quoted those butterfly shrimp were heavenly. Their meat was perfection and the dessert was excellent. Thanks so much for making their special day a special one to remember. I will definitely think of you when I need you again.”

P Leon (Nakusp BC)

“We had the great pleasure of having Aelie come to our home for our 25th anniversary, it was everything we had hoped for and then some, Aelie and her crew were fantastic, great smiles, great attitudes and great food. They made our evening very memorable and impressed the heck out of our guests.
We would recommend Aelie to anyone wanting to be treated like kings and queens.”

L & V Vienneau (Red Deer, AB)

“Aelie thank you for everything. I must say that you ‘wowed’ me. You exceeded my expectations from the first time we talked to when we wrapped up the evening. You were very proactive, responded to all my questions very quickly and didn't hesitate to accommodate my needs. The appetizers were delightful and our guests are raving about the selection and presentation. Thank you for making my husbands 40th birthday a very memorable experience. I look forward to working with you again at future functions.”

C Poole (Okotoks, AB)

“I used Simply Gourmet to cater for my birthday party and I was extremely pleased with the result. Aelie offered a professional service customized to meet my food requirements and budget. The menu was imaginative and proved to be tasty and a great success with the guests. It catered for various dietary requirements such as vegetarian with dairy and wheat free options. Aelie paid great attention to detail in the presentation of the food and was keen to implement hygiene and food safety rules. She also went to the trouble of sourcing recycled napkins and biodegradable disposable plates and utensils, which she found for a very reasonable price. I was impressed by Aelie’s professionalism and commitment to providing a service that met my requirements and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to cater for any occasion.”

B Margerison (Swindon, UK)

“Thank you again so much for the incredible dining experience you created for my birthday party! My husband (originally from Newcastle UK) now living in Calgary, Canada hired Aelie to cater my birthday party… The entire evening was magical. It started with the table being set so beautifully… Aelie was fantastic from start to finish...I did not have to worry about one thing… Aelie created the menu, did all the set up, shopping, cooking, serving and cleaning up, as well as was a perfect hostess to all my guests. The attention to detail throughout the evening was tremendous. The whole menu was amazing… mmm… My guests raved about the food and the presentation… The evening was truly above and beyond our expectations! We will certainly be using your services again even if we have to fly to England to do it… Thank you for a very special birthday!!”

D Addinall (Calgary, AB)

“I hired Aelie to ‘chef’ for a friend’s 50th birthday party. Everything was fabulous! I met with Aelie at my home days before the event so we could both know each other and finalize the details. She prepared the menu, with consultation from me; well in advance… Aelie is professional, courteous and an excellent Chef. I will use her services again and I recommend her with my full confidence!”

T Baker (Calgary, AB)

“I found Aelie’s Personal Chef service to be a wonderful way of maintaining a balanced diet despite my heavy work schedule… the quality of food has been exceptional!”

A Bestwick (Calgary, AB)

“I was put on a strict dairy & wheat free diet and found it difficult to find the time to cook… along came Aelie from Simply Gourmet and she made this possible… coming home from work was no longer a question of ‘what am I going to eat tonight?’… I have enjoyed all the meals and have requested her services again… I highly recommend Aelie and Simply Gourmet!”
