What Our Clients Say About Us








“What an amazingly talented caterer! We gave Peter a loose vision, and he really ran with it! It completely exceeded our expectations by a far mile. The team Peter assembled for us and sent to the venue took the utmost care of us, gracefully handling our requests and anticipating our needs, they even packed us up some poutine for us to eat in our hotel room after closing down the poutine bar! We got compliments from almost every single guest we spoke to about the catering, and we can see why!”

“Just wanted to thank you all for making the day perfect.  I can't get over how wonderful everything looked and tasted.  I had so many great comments from our guests on the food and service.”

“Thank you so much for the delicious wine mushroom chicken, and the roast beef au jus!  Everyone raved about it and enjoyed it so much. You made John's birthday so special.”

“Thank you so much for  the meal you provided for our 50th!  Lots of compliments and your staff were superb...The chocolate berries were a special treat!”

We at Participation Lodge would like to express our deepest gratitude to the following for their kindness and support: Donna & Peter Chaplin, owners of Chaplin Catering, Patricia Elling Wood and Rosie Wildeboer (along with her son) who prepared all of the dinners. The dinners were a 10-star rating, cooked to perfection. All attendees stated afterwards - 'It was by far the best Seafood & Steak Fundraising Dinner they've had at the Lodge." Owen Sound  Sun Times and Hanover Post, November 1, 2016

"Peter and his staff have consistently demonstrated impeccable timing and every event I have attended over the years, including my daughter’s recent wedding, has been easily arranged and flowed seamlessly. I didn’t worry about a thing that day and I received a gratifying number of compliments on how lovely and tasty everything was. Peter and his dedicated staff will see that your event is beautifully managed so that everyone can enjoy it.  Their generous and vibrant approach to your event reflects itself in the “groaning board” runway of delicious food.”
