Lavender Blue Catering and Prepared Foods was founded by 2 friends with ambitions to change the expectations around food. They started in a small kitchen in the back half of a unit in Downtown Orangeville and in 4 years have taken the company to their permanent home at the Athlete Institute on Hwy 9 east. There they have a commercial kitchen and a café-retail location where you can find frozen take home meals, soups and desserts and freshly prepared meals to take home or stay in and enjoy.
Terry Doel, the chef half of the pair, prepares the food with loving hands. Everything is prepared from scratch ingredients, and from local ingredients whenever possible. Terry and her kitchen team work tirelessly to ensure that the creations that pass from their hands to the clients are of the highest quality and exceed excpectations.
Vanessa Kreuzer is the “paperwork Chef” and handles the sales and administrative end of things. Vanessa strives to make all of their events one of a kind and “days to be remembered”. You can find Vanessa in the dining room taking charge and looking after all the finer details. She has a crazy humour that her customers have grown to know and love.
Lavender Blue Catering is a full service catering company. What does that mean? It means that they can handle as much or as little as you would like them to. Details from staffing, bar staff, dish rentals, tents and marquees, florals and décor and of course the fabulous food!
Prepared Foods – Retail and Café
Lavender Blue has an extensive list of frozen entrees, soups and chili. You will also find quiches and desserts in their freezers. Their fresh counter is changing daily, and their clients have come to expect a premium stuffed chicken, tenderloin, or pork tenderloin, quesadillas, mac and cheese balls, Asian beef skewers and more. The fresh case is always stocked with Lavender Blue’s market fresh salads that always include chickpea and dill, roasted beet and goat cheese, and five grain with their signature honey mango vinaigrette.
Take these items home for dinner, or stay in and Enjoy!
