Bow Valley Gourmet and Chef/Owner Michael Anderson provides casual to formal dining and offers healthy foods for all ages. We strive to be affordable, organic and approachable.
Specialized Services – Please explore the “Catering Services” and “Special Events” links above to see the variety of options we offer. Bow Valley Gourmet can either create the menu of your choice, or you can tell us what you crave and we can customize a menu for you.
How does Catering work? – During our initial conversation we will set up a free consultation where I can either come to your house or communicate with you via email or over the phone. I will get an idea of the style you want and expectations you have for your event.
I will customize 3-4 separate menus and send them to you for your review, selection and approval of your favorite. We confirm the date. A deposit is arranged and payment in full is due the day before or the morning of your event. We accept cheque, cash and most major credit cards via PayPal.
We arrive 1-4 hours prior to the event, depending on your menu, with the food, our china, flatware, glassware, pots and pans to create your theme.
You relax and enjoy your time with your family and friends while we take care of everything.
Benefits of a Private Chef

- Provides a variety of foods based on your preference – cuisines can change from course to course or you can stick with a common food theme.
- Have your own Professional Chef to shop, cook and clean your kitchen.
- Flexibility of having the food you want in the comfort of your own home. You enjoy your extra time.
