All about us 

Chef By Request was created by Eric Johnson who has always had a passion for creating delicious customized menus using fresh ingredients and combining different flavours and creating new dishes.  Chef Eric loves  working with our clients to give them the best experience in any type of venue no matter how big or how small.  Eric's goal is to work within any type of budget to make everyone's dreams for their event come true.

We also have a creative staff on hand who can create custom desserts to order.  Just give them an idea of what you have in mind and they will customize your order.  Even with custom cakes from birthdays to  weddings and any other types of celebrations or themes,  we will exceed your expectations. 

We will plan out your events with the greatest detail. From start to finish we are there taking care of it all from theme, colours, right down to the dishware. We can do everything, set it up, serve and clean up.
