COVID-19 hasn’t stopped your favourite Toronto caterers from preparing and delivering delicious gourmet meals straight to our home or office! On the contrary, these caterers have been working their tails off preparing weekly menus for delivery straight to your doorstep for holidays, special occasions, or simply just because. Having been in the delivery game for a few months now, we wanted to know what menu items have proven to be among the most popular. So, in true EventSource fashion, we reached out to a handful of caterers with delivery menus to find out!

“Our Shanghai Slaw is by far one of our most popular items from our Toben At Home delivery menu. It has amazing textures! It is a real Artisan product from the hand-crafted Ume (Japanese Plum) Vinaigrette, to the fine julienne of fresh cut vegetables, to the crispy shallots. It is light, yet filling and full of flavor. Every bite is unique which keeps our clients coming back time and time again!” – Toben Food by Design

“Meet the Rasa Chopped Salad. Chef Adrian Niman created this Food Dude classic by tossing together kale, cabbage, bell peppers, quinoa, and deep-fried harissa-dusted chickpeas for crunch, plus grapes and feta for a salty-sweet kick. He smears jalapeno & feta cream on the side of the bowl for do-it yourself distribution. Add chicken to spice it up! This salad is included in Pantry’s catering platform that delivers next day across the GTA and quickly became a fan favourite!” – Food Dudes

“Our most popular delivery option has been our Picnic and Barbeque menu as they are seasonal and scrumptious for all occasions. The individual boxing of the meal provides peace of mind during these times when health and safety is a top priority. Backyard parties have always been a KTC specialty, so we’ve taken the presentation of our boxed meals up a notch! We recently used real wicker picnic baskets at an outdoor wedding and the guests took them home as a party favors. Everyone loved it (almost as much as the fried chicken)!” – Kiss the Cook Catering

“We offer this amazing barbecue kit for the late summer/fall experience. The success of this kit is the simplicity it offers the end user – just turn on the grill, place items on the grill, cook and serve. The steaks had been sous vide making the flavours dance in your mouth. If beef isn’t for you, we offer options of chicken or salmon.” – APEX Kosher Catering

“When we first decided to feature the Mediterranean Braised Lamb Shanks in our weekly menus, we never imagined it would as popular as it is. We had people waiting for it to feature in our weekly updated specials and sending us requests via social media and email to get it back week after week. Spiced with special herbs and delicious local tomatoes, this ready to reheat and eat special is great if you want to treat yourself during the week.” – en Ville Event Design and Catering
