We planned our entire wedding in Toronto from Australia over email and Skype. Audrey made that process so easy. Multiple Event Drafts going back and forth made sure that everyone knew what was going on and that when the day arrived everything worked out perfectly. Audrey's experience working on the island meant that she knew all the tips and tricks and contacts to make the process and the day as simple as possible. After the wedding, our guests raved about the food, with good reason, it was delicious!

We had the privilege of having Audrey Demers cater our wedding this past May in Toronto. Our experience with her has been nothing but positive. Her boundless energy and creativity, when it came to planning our menu, made the whole process enjoyable and easy. Audrey's knowledge of food, flavour, and presentation are second to none and we were blown away by how everything turned out. We can sincerely say that we taste the love in her food.
The food was excellent and we received countless complements on it throughout the night; we still do actually, months after our wedding.
We wouldn't hesitate to use her services again and we wholeheartedly recommend her to any and all of our friends and family.

Thank you for making our night so incredibly memorable Audrey.

Audrey catered my 120 person wedding on Ward's Island last October.

First things first; the food was amazing. It was simple, honest and tasty; nothing came out of a freezer or a mix. Our guests still marvel at how delicious the food was.

We did not have a wedding planner and so relied on Audrey to give us some advice on how to best use the space. She was so helpful; encouraging us to go with a family-style service (a great choice) and suggesting investing in elegant table linens rather than awkward centrepieces - in retrospect, great choices.

In terms of value, we actually were refunded some money at the end of our wedding because of some economies Audrey had found when renting our service pieces (the venue included only tables and chairs; Audrey rented all our party pieces).

Audrey was able to make some last-minute adjustments when we had a few extra guests (and guests with dietary restrictions).

Another commenter has said that Audrey isn't professional. I disagree - she's quirky, all right, but your food will be delicious, served on time and piping hot. There will be no missing pieces and everything will be cleared away perfectly. Because she doesn't work out of a giant corporate banquet hall, you will need to ask for a sample meal. We did - and we paid for her time and the cost of the ingredients, which is only fair when working with a small business. We got a fantastic value out of it.

Audrey had a big challenge preparing and serving a sit-down wedding dinner on Ward's Island for 100 people, with no on-site kitchen - even the water supply had to come from a garden hose! But, the meal was gorgeous looking & tasted delicious. Many guests commented how much they liked the service and the food.
We also enjoyed our discussions with Audrey and how she would update things as we went along, so both parties knew what was complete and what still needed to be done, what had been revised, etc. We would recommend Audrey to others, as she is: professional & dependable, she sources reliable, helpful staff, serves delicious meals. She offered great service & advice before and after the event.

Audrey catered our wedding on the Toronto Island in August 2011. She is experienced with food and is passionate about using natural ingredients. However, she is very unprofessional and difficult to deal with, which made working with her a challenge.
I was a little concerned when researching Audrey that there is little information about her online, neither reviews nor a website despite the fact that she states 20+ years of experience. This should have been a red flag. I learned the hard way that Audrey is not a catering professional, she is a cook who claims to be a caterer but has no sense of business, event planning or management.
Each conversation with Audrey would begin with her complaining about personal problems; from being stressed to having dental infections, issues which should never come up in discussions about a wedding meal with a client. We put up with her complaining and personal issues as we believed she was an expert at planning and coordinating events on the island. Unfortunately we were misled. Audrey is frazzled and incapable of event management. She mismanaged her staff, cost me more time, money and stress than was necessary and took advantage of my time and budget. She did not provide a tasting meal, even when we asked for one, a standard for wedding caterers. If you work with Audrey, be prepared for surprises.
The day before the wedding my whole wedding party and family helped with the event preparation, from unloading trucks to kitchen prep, to pick up Audrey's slack. The day of the wedding the meal was served as scheduled and all went well, but when we received our final bill it was more than 60% higher than the quoted and agreed upon price!!! This was due to poor planning and management on Audrey's part. Her prices are too high for what she offers, her billing is inaccurate, she is disorganized and unprofessional. In the end, I was dissatisfied with her service. I would never work with her again and I would never recommend her to anyone.

I am extremely happy with our choice of caterer. Audrey surpassed our expectations providing wonderfully delicious food (especially her tasty roasted garlic and butternut squash lasagna with a rosemary bechamel!) that our guests continue to go on about weeks after the wedding. She chooses organic products from local farms and has a very flexible menu in order to suit your needs. Her staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us set up and tear down on the big day. Because we had our wedding on the Toronto Islands there were a number of logistical problems we needed to sort out in terms of transporting food and supplies over to the islands and Audrey was essential resource for us as she has catered numerous weddings at the Ward's Island and Algonquin Island clubhouses and has worked at the Rectory Cafe. In fact, she has recently become the preferred caterer for weddings at the Algonquin Island Clubhouse. Audrey was always very personable and put us at ease. She was quick to respond to emails or phone messages and I am very grateful for all her help over the last couple of months. I highly recommend Audrey as a wedding caterer for weddings in Ontario, especially for anyone considering getting married on the Toronto Islands. Keep and eye out for a new website for Audrey Demers as well.
