It never ceases to amaze me the degree to which memories are shaped by our senses. Sight is an obvious one, but also smell and taste. Think of the scent of your grandad’s aftershave, the taste of a dish that only your mom could cook to perfection, or the smell of her Thanksgiving turkey roasting for the better part of a day. Because let’s face it: cooking a turkey dinner tends to be a full-day affair. More on that in a moment.
The smells of crisping skin, roasting potatoes, steaming veg and bubbling gravy coming together to create a mouth-watering household aroma are unmistakable and unforgettable. So are the tastes. Those dinners weren’t just delicious and comforting. When I sit down to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with my family, my mind is flooded with memories of raucous family get-togethers and utterly delicious meals that I hoped would never end. When it’s done right, a big and bountiful turkey dinner just tastes and smells like home.
Nowadays, we’re proud to be a huge part of so many of our clients’ Thanksgiving traditions. Families are more time-pressed than ever. Many don’t have time to spend hours toiling over a bird big enough to feed a family; you have to really love cooking to spend a full day tending to a roast. As their favourite caterer, we’re called upon year after year to deliver turkey dinner and all the trimmings, so they can focus on spending more time together, leaving the preparation and clean up to us.
Of course, it’s not only time-pressed families that ask us to handle the cooking. Many of our corporate clients have made it a workplace tradition to carve a tasty turkey and share a catered lunch or dinner with their employees and co-workers. It’s the perfect opportunity for staff-wide togetherness, to share ideas and to strengthen inter-office friendships. It’s also a wonderful gesture on the part of an employer. It screams appreciation for their staffers.
Now, you may be wondering why we’re Toronto’s favourite Thanksgiving caterer (we can’t back that claim up with data, but trust us on this one—clients LOVE our food!). Put simply, we’ve perfected a turkey dinner experience that simply can’t be matched. It’s probably because we’ve had plenty of practice. Over more than a decade, we’ve prepared tens of thousands of our Festive Turkey Feasts (our most popular turkey meal option)—sometimes thousands in just one day! Whether you’re looking to feed a crowd of 10—our minimum for serving up a Festive Turkey Feast—or 1,000 guests for corporate celebrations, we always deliver on-time and on-budget.
Having a state-of-the-art industrial kitchen—we call it our Food Studio—always helps, but so does having cutting-edge industrial ovens that allow us to cook as many as 50 25-pound turkeys at once. But no matter the number of people we’re asked to serve, we never compromise our tried-and-true preparation and service process. That’s focused on ensuring that every dish we cook is jam-packed with the goodness of a great home-cooked meal. We’re also not shy with the portions. That’s right, just like mom, we make sure you and yours will leave the table fully satisfied and knowing they’ve gotten full value from their Kiss the Cook experience.
To make your Thanksgiving dinner taste even better, we’ve made sure to keep pricing on our Festive Turkey Feast as competitive as possible—because nothing leaves a sour taste quite like an over-priced, ungenerous catered meal. How do we do it? We serve up so many Feasts that we receive amazing volume pricing that we can then pass on to you. Consider it an early holiday gift! For only $25 per person, you can expect:

Now, there’s only one catch—our Festive Turkey Feast sells out really fast. In fact, we only have a few spots left for Thanksgiving. So, if you want to gobble up our mom-inspired turkey goodness, book now. Or think ahead and start planning for your family or corporate holiday party. Place your orders early to ensure that you don’t miss out on the magic of the holidays. Because no one should have to spend that precious time toiling over a turkey.
Let us do the cooking, so you can focus on living the moment and loving the food.
