ILEA Toronto: The Good, The Bad, and The Yummy

Where else can you find competitors on a panel, speaking the truths of their trade, to industry peers? Why at an ILEA event of course! Congrats to ILEA Toronto for providing an evening of food, fun and great industry conversations with The Good, the Bad and the Yummy. The evening included insights from some of Toronto’s top caterers on their inspiration, client relationships, favorite trends and the trends they wish never took hold.

On challenges –

“There is more to consider when balancing the needs of the event and achieving the goals of the client, and the Pinterest page of the Planner vs. the practicality of the item.” – Dave Stratton

The panel included:

Dave Stratton, Managing Partner, Daniel et Daniel (Moderator)
Rick Rowe, President, Presidential Gourmet
Kelli MacKinnon, Catering Manager, Oliver & Bonacini
Frankie Solarik, Co-Owner, BarChef

On trends –

To create a grandiose experience; emphasis on multi-sensorial, creating a composition and visceral experience for the guest. Incorporating all of the guests senses.” – Frankie Solarik
