Get to know me better

A Creative Chef with a passion for service and for creating fabulous meals with locally sourced high quality food

I am a professional chef with 20+ years experience in the catering and restaurant fields. I grew up with a Dietitian in the house, my mum and with that my first memories of home cooked meals were of colorful plates with nutritiously balanced food choices. With my ever developing love of food and passion for cooking, I decided to attend the Culinary Institute of San Diego. Upon graduation I secured a Sous Chef position with Art Bolic Catering. It was there that I found my calling; cooking for people from all walks of life, no matter the event or size of group. I feed off the creative energy that comes to me when I am in the kitchen. With a lucky turn of events, I landed back in Toronto in 1996 and started my own catering company, Jayne's Gourmet Catering. I have never looked back. I made a conscious decision early on in my growing boutique style business to honor food with integrity and the individuals or groups I was cooking for; always cooking from scratch using the highest quality of locally sourced ingredients; cooking with the seasons although sometimes challenging and knowing and caring about my clients and the food choices they make. I never wanted to lose sight of why I started my business in the first place - and I believe I have succeeded!

Chef Jayne's reviews

Chef Jayne was both professional and a delight to work with. In the build up to the dinner she was great to coordinate with and was incredibly flexible on the menu and order of events. She provided some fantastic recommendations along the way that made for an incredible evening. All our guests raved about how good the food tasted as well of how genuine the services was as well. I'll be recommending Chef Jayne to all my friends and family!

What an amazing experience. Jayne was professional , punctual , and thoughtful. She made the most delicious and beautiful meals. Her presentation was gorgeous. She was very pleasant to interact with and so easy to get along with. She was covid conscious which I appreciated. Also she accommodated and made changes to the menu where certain people had dietary restrictions. It was such a pleasure to work with you Jayne and we hope to work with you again in the future !

Having Jayne cook for us was an incredible experience. She was incredibly accommodating prior to the evening, meeting with us virtually to discuss and prepare the menu in collaboration. She was very professional and calm. The food was truly incredible. Everything homemade and made with love and attention to detail. You can tell Jayne loves what she does as it comes across in her food. She left my kitchen cleaner than it was before! I HIGHLY recommend her for any occasion! I will be a repeat customer forsure!

Jayne was awesome! Made the night complete with an amazing menu. This was for my fiancé’s 30th birthday and she was very pleased as was I. Food was fantastic, we were excited for every single one. Jayne was excellent in explaining each dish as she is an expert in what she does. Would definitely recommend her to all my friends and family.
