"Just wanted to let you know that the wedding went superbly! Everything was great--food was delicious, service was efficient, venue looked spectacular with all the candles and flowers, and my daughter was absolutely ravishing (no bias on my part)! She and Dan also really enjoyed their wedding, which is the most important thing. So I just wanted to say a final thank you! It was a pleasure working with you. You were extremely efficient, helpful, patient with all my queries and changes, and always very professional. I would definitely recommend you if I ever run into anyone who needs one. And we'll be back to P.I.C.A for another delicious dinner! Please also pass on our thanks to Carsten, Chef Bernard and his staff." - Colleen S. (Wedding Catering)

Please express our sincere appreciation to them. Also please thank them for `boxing` all the leftovers – what a great idea! Our guests sure loved that they got to take home some great food. Thank you to you too for all your help. The evening ran very smoothly, so thank you. Thank you again." Ingrid & Bradley
"Thank you for your help in this process. We were so happy with how our wedding turned out. My parents saved us some dessert and kept it in the freezer for us so we are still eating it and it's so delicious!! I would highly, highly recommend PICA to anyone else (and in fact, I already have!) And we appreciate you working closely with Sandy (our event coordinator) as well ... made our life so much easier. We had an awesome honeymoon and are now trying to set up our new place. :-)" - Kristin & Brad

With affection." - Dorothy, Diane and all of the men!

"FANTASTIC!!! Dr. Denton was totally impressed. You and everyone involved did a fantastic job...everything went off without a hitch. The servers circulated well and spaced out the food just like you said. Can't say enough good stuff. Chef Bond was totally fantastic. You are the caterer of choice in this office going forward....now I just have to think up more events to hold :)" - Dr. Denton Office (Open House)
" .... and so where do we begin? A mere thank you simply can not convey our gratitude for all that you did for us. Truly, we can't thank you enough for the exquisite and delicious hors d'oeuvres as well as the imaginative and playful way in which they were presented (serving shrimp by way of chopsticks was brilliant!) Your attention to detail was first class and greatly appreciated. It certainly did not go unnoticed by our guests as we received many compliments on the execution thereof and the service provided. Speaking of service, the students must be congratulated on their grace and comportment. They proved themselves to be professional and most importantly, unobtrusive ---- and we thank them for that. Because of your talent, dedication and hard work our party was a huge success..." - Debby & Greg
"Please pass to Mr. Julian Bond and his team many, many thanks and congratulations for an excellent job they did on the Chopin Gala Reception last Friday at the Chan Centre. Everything was great: the food was presented beautifully and plentiful and was vary tasty. The service was smooth and on time. I've received many good comments from our guests related to all those areas. It all contributed to the success of that important event to our society evening filled music and culinary arts. I will definitely recommend your service. I personally would like to thank you for your help in planning that event. It was a true pleasure to meet you. All the best to you and Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts members." - Teresa B. (Chopin Society)

"Just sending a little note to thank you and PICA for the wonderfully delicious food that was made for my event on Saturday, July 28. It helped talking to you over the phone about the ordering process. Staying connected via email and providing payment over the phone were great time savers.
Debbie and Sheldon helped me when I came to pick up the food Saturday. I picked up some petits fours from the bakeshop and they were nice enough to throw in a couple extra pieces of torte. I appreciated that gesture. Thanks again." - May (Baby Shower Hors D'oeuvres)

"I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work and excellent organization for the party at Dr. McCaffrey's house on Saturday. Also thanks to the chef and students who endured the extreme heat and made it all look easy! Many people who may have future catering needs asked me where I found you as they were extremely impressed with everything. Of those who would not normally use a caterer, there were still many accolades about the food. All in all, none of us could have been more pleased with the way things turned out and the very reasonable price was a big bonus!
Thanks again, Giulia. I can't wait to try your restaurant next time I have guests to impress!" - North Burnaby Dental Group (dinner buffet at home)

My husband's surprise birthday party was a huge success, thanks in part to your delightful cake and fruit complement." - Susan M.
"The pastries and shortbread you provided for our tea party, Dec.9, were a great success. They not only looked fantastic but were super scrumptious. There were many compliments for the Pacific Institute. Needless to say, there was no hope of me passing it off as my home baking!
Thank you for your help in choosing the pasties and organizing everything for us. Would you also pass on our compliments and thanks to the chef and the students." - Brent and Lillian
