Ashleigh Grange, Private Chef

Are you looking for a private event chef for your celebratory dinner, party or special gathering?

Or an event chef to handle all the food and cooking for your health and wellness retreat?

Or perhaps a private chef to cook for you and your family at your cottage or summer home?


I regularly work as a chef in-home and on-site for private events, parties and special gatherings, and I specialize in healthy yet full-of-flavour food. And I wholeheartedly believe in having your cake and eating it too!

My food philosophy is creative, thoughtful and thoroughly influenced by the seasons.

As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, I am trained to navigate all special diets from Paleo to raw to vegan, as well as food allergies and/or food intolerances. I am also an experienced recipe developer and I am skilled at creating gourmet dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, soy-free, egg-free, corn-free, etc. menus.


My services usually include:

  • Complete menu development for all courses
  • All food planning and shopping, unless otherwise specified
  • All food preparation before and during your event
  • All food cooking and plating during your event


I typically work independently or as part of a small team, but I am open to collaborating on a larger team for larger events.

I live in Orillia, Ontario, and I regularly work in Barrie, Ontario, throughout the Simcoe County region, and also often in the cottage country/Muskoka areas. I also adore and am open to travelling, especially for work and for the right project!


Please contact me to request sample menus or a quote for your next event, party or special gathering.
