Pathways on Pleasure Valley: A magical setting with horses, great food and a few life lessons

They say that people and horses often form a special bond. As a boy, Michael Chen–the co-proprietor of Pathways on Pleasure Valley in Uxbridge, ON–had that very same experience. The only difference in his case was that he’d never seen a horse in his life. Chen grew up in an urban neighbourhood in Taiwan. His […]

Introducing our brand new food station – DIY Burrata

If there is one thing we love, it’s creating food stations with that unforgettable wow-factor. Our mission is to have you licking your lips in reminiscence for years to come.

Recipe: Valentine’s Day Salmon

In my opinion there is nothing more romantic than a quiet evening at home with that special someone you love and an incredible dinner. The reality is, not everyone perceives themselves to be a decent cook. So, for countless couples Valentine’s day is a holiday best enjoyed at a restaurant or with the help of […]

There’s something so inspiring about a wedding with a magical location, a wonderful guest list of family and friends and an absolutely delicious menu.

Memories from our first Toronto Catering Showcase—and a hint of what we have planned for this year

It may be hard to imagine, but there was a time before the Toronto Catering Showcase, an event of such importance to our industry that it now seems like it’s been held forever. In truth, it’s only been happening for four years—and Kiss the Cook Catering has been there for all of them. As we […]

Jeff and Giulia’s Jam Factory wedding: A tasty affair that hit all the right notes

When bride-and-groom-to-be Giulia and Jeff were planning their dream wedding, the first thought on their minds (after what delicious meal they’d be serving!) was the venue. The couple knew they wanted to tie the knot in Toronto. Would they choose a traditional banquet hall setting? Perhaps one of the city’s beautiful parks followed by an […]

Homes First provides shelter, support and (Kiss the Cook) meals to Torontonians who need it most

Many of us will never have to rely on a non-profit organization to make ends meet or to help us find food and lodging. We hear about the charities that do this work, we might donate to them or even volunteer hours, but they largely exist on the periphery of our lives. For other Torontonians, […]

Bangarang: An electric cocktail bar we love built on comfort, fun and … cornhole?

There’s nothing quite like a venue where you can enjoy everything from games to drinks to dancing with friends and never feel like you’re out of place. You know—the kind of fun, engaging atmosphere that has the vibe of a super-charged house party but with the design aesthetic of a hip nightspot. Look no further […]
