We Remove The Guesswork

Answers to Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I start planning?

As soon as you say yes! Venues, catering companies, DJs, florists, etc. get booked up. Faster during the summer months. Saturdays in July and August, for example, are the first to go. So the earlier you start planning the better. We recommend that you start planning a minimum of six month in advance to ensure that you get everything you’re dreaming of.

Do you do tastings?

Absolutely, this is our favourite part of the planning process! We’d love to show you what we do best, and help you choose your perfect wedding menu. Our tastings cost $99 per guest (attending the tasting) and you can choose up to six items from your menu to taste.

Our tasting cost is credited back towards your wedding should you choose to move forward with us.

Do you take care of bar services?

Yes! Savoury Chef is Vancouver's Premier Full Service Catering Company. That means not just the food itself but also the bar, rentals and staffing.

Do your menu prices include service staff and rentals?

No, we build all catering packages customized to the event itself. The first step is to schedule a call with one of our Event Specialists. During this call, we go over everything from the timeline, guest count, service style preferences, menu options, bar options, venue facilities and more. From there, we will put together a customized catering proposal for you.

When do I need to confirm guest numbers?

We require final guest numbers [x days] business days prior to your event. After this date, we are still able to accommodate minor increases in guest numbers on a case by case basis.

Can you accommodate special dietary needs?

Yes! In fact, we are a peanut free facility. Our team has a great deal of experience handling all sorts of allergies and dietary restrictions. Let us know your requirements in advance and we will make the necessary adjustments to satisfy your guests.

Note that for very serious allergies, we cannot fully guarantee that your food is completely allergen free.

Does there need to be a kitchen onsite at my venue?

No. We can build a pop-up kitchen in no time flat. It would require extra rentals, but it is doable.

Can I work with you to develop a custom menu?

Absolutely! We love building custom menus in collaboration with our clients. Speak to our team to learn more.
