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.

Have you ever gone stand-up paddleboarding? How about with a garden RAKE for a paddle? 🤔 sometimes it's fun to try something new... especially when it comes to #fitness! .
.
I know, I know, maybe it looks a bit (a lot?) ridiculous, but our friend's teenagers started doing it and it works LIKE A CHARM. Seriously, it's so fast! Even with my noodle arms 🤣
.
.
And my #innerchild was having SO SO much fun, taking an impromptu break from work, and looking silly splashing around the bay (which means mostly falling off the board and drinking lots of lake water...🤤🤢...you'd think I'd learn to close my mouth! 🤣). I just LOVE the water (this is my happy place!)
.
.
I'm so lucky to live so close to one of the most beautiful areas of the country (#Muskoka) and I'm eager to enjoy more of it, more often. .
.
Every summer I work-work-work and don't spend a lot of time away from my computer or the kitchen. But my partner works shift work so we can definitely *try to* spend more delicious days and afternoons like this! .
.
I'm committing to spending more time on/near the water, more work days away from my desk, and more fun in the sun!
.

Who wants to join me? .
