Our Commitment to Quality

Our recipes are made with organic or unsprayed produce (based on availability) with a focus on seasonal and local. We use organic or free-range meats, dairy and eggs. Find out more: GFYG Catering Info 2023

We use only cold-pressed, non-genetically modified (non-GMO), non-hydrogenated oils and fats in all our cooking and baking, with no exceptions. The ancient and whole grain flours we use are higher in protein and fiber than conventional, highly-processed flours. We use minimally processed whole foods sweeteners such as Sucanat and Turbinado, brown rice syrup, maple syrup and honey exclusively — never refined white sugar.

The Good for you Gourmet has been an insured member of the Canadian Personal Chef Alliance since 2005. Our services are offered in accordance with their guidelines: for more information, visit their website: www.canadianpersonalchefalliance.ca

As the end of my maternity leave grew closer, I worried how my family would cope with my going back to work. I was plagued by \'what\'s for dinner?\' anxiety, and wondered how I would be able to spend quality time with my son while trying to cook dinner every day. Chef Laura\'s services were exactly what we needed to ease this transition. A well-stocked freezer of lovingly prepared, delicious and nutritious food put my mind at ease that at the end of the day my family would always be well fed.” 

Crystal & Ryan, and Liam, November 2012

As a busy individual with a lot on the go, I appreciated how quickly Chef Laura was able to accommodate my cooking request - within a week of contacting her I had a fridge and freezer full of ready-to-eat food. Laura worked to develop a menu plan that addressed both my vegan dietary choice and individual food preferences. While all the dishes were delicious, the kichadi is beyond amazing, and I will be requesting it again! Laura provided a fantastic timely service that delivered excellent vegan food, great convenience and flexibility, and a tidy kitchen to boot.” 

Dannica S., October 2010

Chef Laura came to our home to prepare meals on a weekly basis, fresh groceries in hand. We had specific dietary requirements: primarily salt free, low fat, low sugar, high fiber and vegetarian. Laura met these criteria unfailingly, and yet was consistently able to produce extraordinary & exciting flavors in her many varied creations. Laura did all the shopping for her ingredients and clearly had exceptional knowledge about nutrition & wholesome quality products.”
