2011 to 2018 SEASON

Chef Martin,
You prepared our lovely wedding night dinner at an intimate gathering at Casa Belle north of Kelowna, Sep 3, 2012. I wanted to thank you again for the amazing and memorable service you provided. You did all the shopping, prepared appetizers of stuffed mushrooms and chipotle lime shrimp, a delicious melt-in-your-mouth salmon with seasonal fruit salsa for the main and peach cobbler (our fav) for dessert. You even decorated our second dessert - cupcakes - with a sugary work of art, and entertained us when appropriate! I recently hosted a 50th wedding anniversary dinner party for my parents at my home in Calgary and had it catered... I wish you lived here. The service and food was great but it was so SO much more expensive (almost 3x)! I look back now and realize what an absolutely incredible value you offered us. I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know what an incredibly positive experience we had and that you're doing an excellent job! Feel free to share this testimonial if you like.
Thanks so much,
Heather Riome

Hi Martin and Kristin,

Thanks again and we will keep in touch Leo and Norma Sent from my iPhone

Hi Chef Martin,

Martin, we were at the Drosdovech birthday party on Sun May 24 and thought that all the food was absolutely wonderful.
However, we especially enjoyed the outstanding shrimp that you prepared and were wondering if you would share your recipe with us.
We would only use it for personal use.
We are sorry that we do not live in Kelowna so that we could use your services.
Thank you

Hi Martin
I attended Ben and Brittany's wedding at La Punta Norte and was blown away by the excellent meal that you served. The pulled pork was incredible.
My wife Delada, who rarely enjoys bread with her meal, told me that the buns you served were the absolute best she ever tasted.
Thanks again for a great dining experience. Hands down the best banquet style dinner we have had!
Best Regards

We wanted to thank you again for a wonderful experience! Not only was the food fantastic (in presentation and taste!) but the whole experience was far beyond what we had anticipated.

Just wanted to email you to say thank you so much for preparing such a wonderful dinner for my husband?s 50th birthday last weekend!
The food was amazing and so fun to have it prepared right where we were. Such smells!! I enjoyed my sugar lesson. Our guests have all remarked on how delicious dinner was.
It was exactly what we were hoping for. Thank you for taking the time to accommodate our guests nutritional issues. It made everyone feel special.
My husband loved the salad dressing. I loved the ganache covering the cake.
Please thank Kristen as well. It was lovely to meet her and it was really nice to be able to have a plated dinner and have the appies passed.
Thanks again,

Thank you again.

Prepared from scratch, with a wealth of tips along the way. A thoroughly entertaining and instructive experience, highly recommended.

Hi Chef Martin!
I was one of the lucky guests at Tamlyn and Nate Edwards' Newlywed BBQ this past Sunday to sample your baby potatoes, and roast with red wine/balsamic reduction.
Everything was excellent ... from the asparagus to the cajun shrimp to the salmon to the chocolate gateau!!
The meal made our 12 hour trip from Edmonton Friday and 12 hour trip back to Edmonton Monday worthwhile! Thank you for the great meal and the culinary tips!

Hi Chef Martin and Kristen,
Just want to say thank you for a great dinner on Friday....and leftovers all weekend! I'm getting great feedback from all of our guests as well.
Thanks again for everything!

Chef Martin,
Thanks so much for making Malcolm's birthday memorable!
Not only was the food delicious but you were great fun and very informative (we will never boil ribs again! and I'm going to set the standard in my family for turkey gravy!).
Malcolm really appreciated the entire experience and we all had a great time. (The kids are still talking about 'chef'.). I really appreciated Kristin's cocktails and wine selections and knowledge.
Talking about food and drink is almost as fun as eating and drinking and it was nice to be able to do that with her.
Overall, the experience exceeded our expectations.
Thanks, too, for sharing your recipes!
Krista Scott - Edmonton Alberta

Martin, Thanks so much again for the great night you guys put on for us last night! The meal was fantastic as usual. Some really great new dishes that were uniquely presented (got to say when I heard about the ham and egg cones I had my hesitations, but on the day they were a favorite...and loved how they were presented on the stave!).
You also gave us a few fan favorite dishes as well as did an amazing job accommodating the food sensitivities in the group without limiting the menu! Kudos for that!
Anyway, thanks again for your efforts.
Take care,
Darren - Springfield Dental Centre - Kelowna / Okanagan
