Bow Valley Gourmet is unique from traditional catering – We offer refined Private Chef & Catering services to give you the food you want the way you want it! Rather than existing menus or food options to choose from, you may outline the entire menu yourself based on your preferences or theme. Chef Michael Anderson can also provide suggestions or offer you several different menus to chose from.
In the Bow Valley and surrounding areas this is flexible, we remain professional and serve you – as-you-like-it. This service is ideal for second home owners, family reunions, corporate retreats, and the various sports teams who would like custom designed nutritional meals.
Bow Valley Gourmet provides all equipment, including China, Flatware and Glassware as needed. In all cases, we work with your ideas to design a menu that suits you!
Depending on the size of the menu we may arrive up to 6-8 hours before the event to prepare the food. It is not required you be there for the preparation, you just arrive for the event to the aroma of good food.

Bow Valley Gourmet is a Private Chef/Catering company based on customer service and quality. We do not use frozen vegetables – we buy fresh & organic whenever we can, and we make everything from scratch. We do all the grocery shopping and are careful to chose the best available foods.
Before creating your menu, you and the Chef will discuss your vision, food preferences and budget guidelines. The Chef will provide you with 3-4 separate menus with detailed pricing via email, phone, or fax. You approve the menu you prefer and focus on anything else but the food and food service for your special night or event.
Bow Valley Gourmet strives to surprise our clients with competitive pricing! Pricing is contingent on different factors such as the size of your party, and the complexity of your menu.
