  • “Truffles Fine Foods did an amazing job catering our wedding. We were impressed by how much our guests loved the food and months later are still hearing how wonderful it was. Coming from a family of foodies, we thought it would be a tough crowd to please – to our surprise, even guests with the highest expectations said it was one of the best meals they’d ever had. Truffles has become the benchmark in our family all meals are measured against. Thank you for making our special day hassle free and amazingly delicious”

    NATASHA & LARS' WEDDINGWEST VANCOUVER
  • “Nin and his team have provided exceptional service and incredible food. Truffles has been a beacon in our industry in regards to food services. Nothing is more pressure for a caterer than to provide days of high in quality meals and please A-list actors, Stars, and crew. The company’s goal is always a “yes” when it comes to answering catering concerns.”

    NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 3DREW LOCKE, PRODUCTION MANAGER
  • “Thanks to Truffles Fines Foods for all their effort and help with planning our wedding. We could not have asked for better Day! We had countless comments on the food, the staff, and service at the bar. Everything was very professional and very well done. Some people said it was the best wedding food ever!”

    KIM & TYLER'S WEDDINGVANDUSEN VISITOR CENTRE, VANCOUVER
  • “Truffles have provided catering for us for events in our offices, BC Showcase, and other off site venues for over four years. The events have ranged from staff appreciate activities, VIP luncheons and evening receptions, and from 10 to 300+ guests. No matter how big or small the event is – the experience is the same. The food is always excellent with great care in presentation. The Truffles staff are extremely professional and very pleasant to deal with.”

    MINISTRY OF INTERNATIONAL TRADEKELLY GOSSEN, MISSION & EVENTS OFFICER
  • “We have worked with Truffles Fine Foods for four years on a variety of different events. Truffles has consistently delivered excellent food at an appropriate price. The staff is hard working, friendly and very creative; the first on site and often the last to leave. They leave the job site in better shape than they found it. Truffles has no problem meeting the demands of challenging environments, and provide fresh nutritious food regardless the location. They are good at managing tight budgets without sacrificing quality, which is not easily done and very much appreciated.”

    BRAND LIVECATHERINE RUNNALS, PRESIDENT
  • “The food was beyond amazing, and our guests raved about the canapés, the buffet choices, and the service from Truffles Catering staff. From the planning stage to the night of the wedding, we could not have wished for anything better. I only wish we could do it all over again because the night was that memorable!”
