After having our wedding caterer cancel on us less than two months before our wedding, I ended up contacting Michael to inquire as to his availability. Upon speaking with Michael, he was able to accommodate us on such short notice, plus he charged us less money than my original caterer! Michael provided a buffet dinner for 120 people, supply two bartenders, wait staff, coffee/tea, and a poutine late night snack.

The day before the wedding reception I met Michael on site for the first time as he started to bring in his equipment. Since I was based in Edmonton and him in Canmore we did not get a chance to meet or sample the food prior to our wedding event so we were going in blind so to speak. Michael and I went over the series of events that were going to take place the next day and proceeded with his setup.

When the bride and I arrived at the reception, dinner was ready and served to us. We had roast chicken and prime rib options with salads and vegetables. Everything that Bow Valley Gourmet cooked was fresh and exceeded out expectations. Michael even made sure that pretty much everything was gluten free so our celiac guests would not be excluded. The girls working the bar were amazing. I knew they were busy as our families know how to make a dent in an open bar!

All in all, it was a great event. The food was more then we could have asked for and the professional chef and support staff really helped to bring the event together. Chef Michael has many years of experience in the food industry and it shows through his dedication and passion for his work. He stands by his food and he is able to deliver a quality product for a reasonable price! Highly recommended for anyone looking for catering services in the Canmore area. Keep up the good work guys!

Michael and his team did an amazing job! The food was amazing and a huge hit at the wedding (probably one of the highlights). So many people commented on how good the food was and were so impressed! Most people even went for seconds.
Michael was great to deal with and so easy going and accommodating. And the cost was very reasonable!
We hired a bartender through Bow Valley Gourmet, and she was great. All his staff were friendly, professional and efficient. The buffet was great quality and quick...tables hardly had to wait. The fact that our venue was pretty remote didn't effect the quality of the food one bit.
I would absolutely recommend Bow Valley Gourmet to anyone needing a caterer!! I have nothing but great things to say about Bow Valley Gourmet!
The only thing I am disappointed about is that Michael doesn't have a restaurant that I can go to on a regular basis to enjoy his gourmet food at a price I can afford.
No exaggeration, Bow Valley Gourmet is AMAZING and was the best vendor I hired for our wedding.

Our Wedding event was small but formal and we also had a budget. We looked around Canmore area and were shocked to find such restictions and hidden fees with most Catering companies.
When we first contacted Bow Valley Gourmet, our reply time was a matter of hours! We sent him our guidelines and what we were looking for, Chef/Owner Michael Anderson created 4 seperate menus for us. He is a former Fine dining Chef that could be the best Chef in the area!
We selected our menu and enjoyed our Tasting, which is included for free. The staff was professional and attentive, but the food is what all our guests were commenting about.
We were blown away by Chef Michael Anderson and his food! He comes highly recommended and now we know why.

In looking for a Catering Company in Canmore we ran across a variety of options. We chose Bow Valley Gourmet for a number of reasons.
Chef/Owner Michael Anderson has been in the food and beverage industry for over 20 years and graduated from culinary school. It's amazing if you ask - Has your Chef attended Culinary School, how many catering companies will say "No" Bow Valley Gourmet allowed us to pick the menu we wanted and then tweak it to fit us. We gave them our budget and we got everything we wanted within our budget. The food was amazing, the idea that brought me to this review.
We highly recommend Bow Valley Gourmet for any event.
