Bringing The Restaurant To YouCatering

Simply Gourmet is here to bring the restaurant to you and your guests.

In-home entertaining is a hot trend in the city of Calgary. We would rather invite friends over than dine out at an expensive restaurant, receive average service, mediocre food and be rushed out.

  • Do you love to entertain but are tired of spending the night in the kitchen?
  • Are you planning a party or special event but don’t want to pay for a high priced large catering company or dine out at an expensive restaurant?
  • Are you hosting a corporate event and want food that will impress your clients?
  • Are you planning an intimate Wedding and want a more personalized approach to the catering?
  • Wanting a unique way to celebrate the Christmas or Thanksgiving holidays?
  • Don’t need a chef or you are on a tight budget? We can do a drop off service…no problem!

Have Simply Gourmet cater your special event. Servicing Calgary and the surrounding areas.

Drop-off Catering Services

  • Not able to get into your favorite restaurant due to limited seating?
  • Miss bonding with your friends over dinner and drinks?
  • Wanting to socialize within your small social circle in the comfort of your home?

We get it, connection is so important and for centuries humans have connected over food.

Restaurants may have re-opened but its not quite the same. With limited seating and new policies put in place it just doesn’t have the same feeling.

That doesn’t mean you have to stop sharing a meal with your friends, Simply Gourmet will bring the restaurant to the comfort of your own home.

We will prepare off-site an elegant 3-4 course dinner that will be delivered to your home. You can all once again share a night of dinner and drinks together, safely in your home.

A Whole Lot Less Stressful

“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!”

They Made Our Evening Very Memorable

“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.”

I Look Forward to Working With You Again

“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.”

Everything Was Fabulous

“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!”

I Have Enjoyed All The Meals

“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!”
