What Do TUC People Do All Day...

Catering/Chef-for-Hire/Cooking Classes

Postby will mercer » Thu Sep 09, 2004 4:25 pm

Despite spending 4 years learing the intricacies of International Finance in School, I decided that I had allocate some time to my true passion: food.

I provide catering and chef-for-hire services for various size functions, generally ranging from a minimum of 6 people, to a maximum of 30. (Smaller functions are available, but the cost per head increases substantially).

The style of food is an eclectic mix, but can be loosely described as French-Asian fusion. (See sample menu below). I am happy to accomodate all palates and allergies.

To plan a menu, I talk to the client to explore their likes/dislikes, as well as those of their guests. I then put together a couple of sample menus for the client to either select in entirety, or to mix-and-match between.

I would be more than happy to provide a discount to TUC members, (or their referrals), increasing proporionately with the size of the function.

I plan to start some relatively informal cooking classes later this fall, as soon as I can find an appropriate teaching space. I would also like to develop a website to post pictures, and eventually a price list etc. I will post more info on this as it becomes available.

You can PM me, email me at, or call me at 647 221 4265.
