Thanks For Visiting UsWelcome to Simply Gourmet

At Simply Gourmet personal chef and catering we’re
about making your life easier.

You don’t have time to cook? Simple.
You don’t want to spend all night in the kitchen? Simple.
You don’t know what to cook? Simple.
You have dietary restrictions or special nutritional needs? Simple.
You need a caterer for your special event? Simple.

Simply let us do the work for you. So you can have more time to do the things you want to do.

Chicken, rice and vegetables

Let’s face it – you are busy. Whether it’s long hours at work, picking up kids from school, or exercising your dog for an hour after work you need to spend valuable time with your family not spending hours cooking and cleaning the kitchen or worse yet…plopping another  unhealthy microwave meal on the table.

Perhaps you have special dietary needs such as a gluten free or a vegetarian diet or maybe you are a Weight Watchers fan and you are struggling to come up with a variety of tasty options. Don’t fret…we have you covered! 

Serving the Calgary area, our personal chef services provide you with delicious, custom made meals delivered directly to your freezer. No fuss – no muss.

You love dining out in Calgary but there’s something about staying home that appeals more. Having friends over in the comfort of our homes is far more enjoyable than dining in a busy, loud restaurant where you only get to talk to the person next to you.

But, let’s face it, cooking for a crowd is a lot of work! Simply Gourmet takes care of it all for you. Whether it’s choosing from our catering drop off packages or having us cater your full event, we have got you covered!

Think of Simply Gourmet as bringing the restaurant to your home. We create a unique menu for you to choose from, completely catered to your preferences and budget. All the details are taken care of, from setting the table and serving, to wine pairings and full clean up. Simply sit back and enjoy!

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!”
