Michael was a pleasure to work with! We had our wedding at Bill Warren Training Center. We had plenty of guests say how incredible the food was! He was very good at finding menu items that suited our preferences, as well as our guests dietary needs. His staff were friendly and efficient. Definitely recommend Michael and Bow Valley Gourmet for your wedding or event in Canmore area! More...

We had a wonderful experience working with Bow Valley Gourmet and Chef Michael to arrange a private dinner for our group in Banff. Chef Michael provided a range of options at the onset and was very accommodating to our needs. He helped guide us towards menu options that suited our large group. The dishes were beautiful and delicious and personnel professional and courteous! Highly recommend! More...

My family and I had our Hotel room transformed into a 4 Star restaurant!
Chef Michael Anderson customized our Menu and served us Panko crusted Lamb chops. The meal was absolutely fantastic.
My initial emails were replied to quickly and professionally, I am still waiting for others to get back to me..
Bow Valley Gourmet is truly one of kind in Canmore, we would highly recommend Chef Michael and Bow Valley Gourmet for any event.

My husband and I had our wedding catered by Michael at Bow Valley Gourmet. Michael and his team did an excellent job! The food was amazing (all our guests raved about it), Michael takes his time and uses all fresh ingredients. He also did a tasting with us, and when we were unable to come to Canmore he drove out to Calgary and prepared a meal in our house. The prices are very fair and the food is excellent quality, I highly recommend Bow Valley Gourmet for any event needing a caterer. More...

When I was younger working my up in various kitchens. It was a daily challenge to creat and be innovative - I loved everyday. As a Chef, I appreciated the challenge even more. When I was a Hotel Chef, I was not allowed to change the Menus very often. I strived to be creative everyday and opening my own Catering/Private Chef company has allowed me to offer this to a variety of Guests. This also allowed me to create working relationships with seasonal food vendors.

He brings that experience and passion to every event. Bow Valley Gourmet also offers a complimentary Tasting as well as a free consultation.
