With the warmer weather upon us, it is a great time to plan your summer events. I recently got treated to some delicious morsels from Chef and Owner of Provisions catering in Toronto, Kevin Castonguay.
Kevin met up with us at a home in Toronto where he gave us a sample of what an event catered by his company would taste like. The food was not only creative in taste and combinations but also in presentation and aesthetics. The use of a different style and colour cracker for each item was both great to look at as it was to eat.
Provisions prides itself on using seasonal and local ingredients as well as sustainable products so you can always count on top quality.
I took a bunch of photos of Kevin’s creations to share with our readers. Kevin also included some captions for each.
