"It is the morning after another event presented by Jamey and his team. What a wonder it is to have a large party and know that there is nothing to worry about with Jamey at the helm. Already the accolades are streaming in - the food and service so sans pareil that we are trying to craft a new word for the experience. Jamey's professionalism stands out in every detail... and every detail is perfection."

"We were extremely pleased with the service and quality of food provided by JAMES Catering for our Christmas Cocktail Party. JAMES Catering made excellent suggestions with regards to appetizers and beverages to please our crowd of 75 from age 30 to 70. They made suggestions to ensure we stayed within our budget and the staff were very pleasant and professional. They looked after our guests from the moment they arrived and provided us with a stress-free evening. We received numerous compliments on the evening from our friends and neighbours and would not hesitate to recommend JAMES Catering for your next event."

Gina and Paul Delaney, P. Delaney and Associates

Dr. Kingsley Watts

"Thanks for everything. The party was a wild success!"

Maureen Holloway

"I have engaged Jamey and his staff on a number of occasions and their creativity, professionalism and friendliness have assured the success of my events. The food is always wonderful and original, but I think that Jamey's personality is always the icing on the cake; everyone enjoys him so much."


Events & Weddings

"Having known Jamey Fraser for a number of years, it was a foregone conclusion when Sears Canada asked me to find a great Chef to help me with their new project, that I would call him. With Jamey’s help, we held weekly Cooking classes in many of the Sears flagship stores, gaining awareness and a loyal following of fans for both Chef Jamey and Sears!"

Chef Jamey is both impeccable and imaginative with attention to every detail. He is cognoscente of budgets and requirements which is why I have used his services for both my professional and personal affairs."

Anita Wright, Wright Alternative/Events

"JAMES Catering catered our wedding. My husband and I both come from hard core foodie families, so the standard JAMES Catering had to meet was extremely high. We had people traveling from France, from New York City and from London. All I can say is five years later, our families and our guests are STILL raving about the incredible food and the lovely staff. In addition, Jamey himself is an absolute delight to work with. He makes sure every detail is exactly what you want, and he takes all the stress out of planning an event. We highly recommend these guys- they are FANTASTIC."

Asha P. Daniere, General Counsel

"As a food industry professional, I probably would have catered my own wedding if I could – at least, that’s how I felt before I met Jamey Fraser."

From our very first meeting, Jamey was punctual, approachable, and professional. He listened carefully to my ideas and took notes as I described my vision for our wedding day. He didn’t hesitate to ask questions on things he felt needed clarifying, and he responded to even what I considered my more esoteric requests with confidence and enthusiasm."

Beginning with that first meeting, Jamey became an ally to my fiancé and me throughout our wedding planning process. He made us feel that our event was as important to him as it was to us, and went above and beyond in his commitment to making sure our day went perfectly."

I could go on all day about what a pleasure it was to have someone like Jamey on our side as we navigated the sometimes challenging world of wedding planning, but that wouldn’t leave me enough room to talk about the food – and what food it was! "

Our late-summer feast featured the freshest and tastiest ingredients, almost all locally sourced, and prepared simply and perfectly. From succulent lobster with drawn butter to fresh peach pies with whipped cream, there was an abundance of food for everyone; and it was all served with good humour and panache by Jamey’s staff, who made us feel that there was no place they’d rather be. "

Essentially, from the moment we arrived at our wedding site, we were 100% worry-free. Jamey inspired our absolute confidence. Our wedding day was one we look back on as one of the most wonderful moments of our life, and it would be impossible to understate how great a hand JAMES Catering had in making it so."

Annie McDonald & Michael Johnston

"JAMES Catering did a magnificent job on our wedding. The food was mouth watering and the staff were outstanding. We received countless compliments from friends and family. We were so impressed with how seamless everything appeared and recognize that much of that seamlessness was due to a lot of hard work behind the scenes. The evening was nothing short of perfection thanks to Jamey and his excellent staff."

Sue Gordon and Dave Mansfield, Managing Director Financial Products Group, BMO

"As a guest at an intimate wedding celebration that JAMES Catering orchestrated, I had a most memorable experience thanks to a combination of amazing food and attentive and personable staff who created an elegant and savoury event. It was a perfect event -- from the impressive array of delicious appetizers to the mouth watering deserts and everything in between."

Gail Houston
