Season and her team at Culinary Designs are absolutely fantastic and the best wedding catering team we could have dreamed of. They catered our 30 person wedding at Serenity Cottage in Owen Sound October 2019 and people are still talking about how amazing the food was. From the very beginning Season was super helpful and thoughtful about putting together our wedding menu. She included foods from my and my husband’s background, special options for kids, and for food sensitivities (dairy and gluten free). Season was always professional, quick to respond, and easy to talk to.

The day of the wedding, Season, Kelly, and her team arrived early and took charge of the catering. I didn’t have to worry about a thing, which is priceless for a bride on the day of her wedding. The food was absolutely delicious, fresh and looked beautiful! The serving staff were very attentive and professional. The big ticket items were amazing (food, servers etc) but they took care of all the small details as well.

Words cannot describe how grateful we were to wake up the next morning to find all the leftovers wrapped up with care in the fridge and all the rental dishes packed away for us. If you are having a wedding or event near Owen Sound/Thornbury area, please use Culinary Designs! You won’t regret it.

Culinary Design is Seasons catering service . Food is great. Very tasty and many unique dishes to pick from. One of Ontario’s best chefs had Culinary Design do his Christmas staff party. Great catering service

Cured is the name of small restaurant at same location. Very simple spot but food is very good and unique. Has an Italian European flair to it. Well worth a visit for lunch.

There’s care in every dish...very good burger with very good fries...salad of 2 generous pieces local smoked trout atop mixed greens with strawberries, blueberries and goat cheese lightly dressed with vinaigrette....chicken quesadilla with house made coleslaw. In fact all is house made. The vegetable soup was thick with vegetables but a bit tangy, and lacked body (I would add a little olive oil) but still satisfying.

All served by staff who care about a good customer experience. Well known for catering.

Lots of free parking and conveniently located in Thornbury.

To whom it may concern;As a 15 year resident of Thornbury/Clarksburg area,and a well known Chef I am here to tell you Season and her Staff are nothing but professionals...She does not deserve peoples slander and disgusting unethical reviews on this site.Herself and her staff has always had fresh creative ideas to satisfy anyone's pallet as well she is determined to source out the freshest local ingredients and is in touch with local farmers on a daily bases.. Shopping locally is rare on this industry,but it's one thing that makes our community such a great place to live.. please keep your disgusting unethical rude unfair reviews to yourself...

We are so happy to have had Season and her AMAZING team cater our wedding this past fall at a cottage on Georgian Bay. For us, food was really important for our wedding (we love food!) so we wanted to have fresh, local and unique food for our guests and Culinary Designs did just that! We were blown away by the array of appetizers and the amount of food for our main dishes. Our family is still talking about all the delicious food from our wedding!

Season went beyond just planning our menu for our wedding. She helped with questions we had about rentals (serving dishes, glassware, etc.), timelines and was able to accommodate dietary allergies some of our guests had. Season was always so friendly and quick when responding to questions. We both really respected Season and her confidence – in herself and in her team’s work and their ability to create a beautiful and delicious menu for us. This put us at total ease, knowing we were in such good hands.

Kelly, who was the event coordinator for our big day was also amazing! Kelly helped create a day-of schedule for our wedding to help keep us organized (no detail was forgotten!). On our wedding day, Kelly arrived early and jumped right in and helped our families set-up. She was so lovely to be around and work with! Kelly regularly checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we were on schedule for dinner and dessert. We never once had to ask Kelly and the Culinary Designs team to do anything throughout the day or night. They just knew what needed to be done and proactively did it. It took the stress off of us and we were able to just enjoy the night, knowing everything was taken care of.

We really cannot recommend Season and her Culinary Designs team enough to cater your next event or wedding! You will not be disappointed!
