TORONTO Creative director Craig Gruzd and the team at Designing Trendz have joined forces with Domenic Chiaromonte (longtime executive chef at Match Restaurant) to launch Catering Trendz, a new full-service catering company with a focus on fashion-forward contemporary Canadian cuisine.
Available for events like corporate breakfasts, private dinners, and cocktail receptions, Catering Trendz provides custom menus, including kosher foods. Desserts include items like candy sushi made with Rice Krispies and cupcakes designed to look like mini hamburgers. Additional specialty items include an elaborate fountain that can be used for chocolate or savoury sauces and a pancake station with a machine that makes pancakes in a variety of sizes. Creative consultant Joanne Kulha spent 15 years managing Truffles at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto and most recently served as the catering services manager at Copper Creek Golf Club.
