About B·Elegant Catering & Event Planning…
Located in Kitchener and Cambridge, B·Elegant has executed over 150 weddings and thousands of corporate events in the ten year span that they’ve been in business. Also during that time, B·Elegant has built strong relationships with some of the best venues and vendors in the region.
For Robyn and the team, creating memorable experiences through food is a shared passion.
“Creating unforgettable celebrations down to every last detail is our promise. We believe that incredible food is a central part of any celebration,” she says. “Enjoyment isn’t just for the guests, but the hosts too. Our team of industry leaders is looking to redefine hospitality”.
B·Elegant Catering’s services…
Working with their large network of venues and vendors, B·Elegant can help you coordinate a wedding tailored to your needs and wants. They can help you find the perfect venue for your style, group size, ideal location and vision.
“We LOVE B·Elegant Catering & Events! They are very professional, accommodating, flexible and have a very quick response time. Their price point and quality are most excellent, we can’t wait to work with them again!” – Leslee, A Perfect Day Weddings
B·Elegant offers plated, buffet or food station styled dinners at a variety of price points. “We also thrive on customization and can work with you to create a menu that is as unique and special as the couples we work with,” Robyn says, adding that requests for vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan and halal meals can be accommodated. For couples looking to taste the food before deciding to sign the contract with B·Elegant, Robyn says couples can experience the quality of food and service to help them decide at one of their tasting experiences.
One month prior to your wedding, Robyn recommends a one hour final detail meeting to review all details including food and beverages, as well as outstanding items such as set up, final numbers and the floorplan.
About the team…
On the day of the wedding, the team oversees all aspects of the food at the event, as well as the set-up and tear down if required. “Their experience levels vary, but all are highly trained.” says Robyn.
B·Hospitality welcomes its new Director of Culinary, Dylan Fischer. Graduating from Toronto’s George Brown College, he describes his culinary style as “simple and elegant”. Through 20 years of kitchen experience, and working under both Jamie Kennedy and Anthony Walsh, Dylan has honed his culinary skills and developed his own unique style. Dylan draws inspiration from Rustic French and Italian cuisine, using local Canadian ingredients, fitting in perfectly with B·Hospitality’s focus on fresh and local product.
His impressive resume includes experience with the notable Auberge du Pommier, Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar, The Ritz Carleton, Toronto and now B·Hospitality. Dylan is already confidently leading our team of culinary professionals and his dedication to quality food can be tasted in every bite.
“I’ve worked with B·Elegant Catering a number of times and they have always been thoroughly professional, committed to providing the highest culinary standards and take real pride in their work.” – Gary Evans, Gary Evans Photography
