corbin catering and foods torontoChef Corbin Tomaszeski has been in the catering business for about 15 years and cooking for as long as he can remember, whipping up extravagant meals like chicken cordon bleu at the age of 10, before he knew what the dish even was.

That's probably why the dishes taste like real home cooking. The beef Bourguignon (two servings: $16) is one of Tomaszeski's most popular offerings. He says he's sure customers would come for him if he were to ever discontinue the meal. 

corbin catering and foods torontoThe beef is braised for close to four hours in veal stock and a red wine demi-glace in order to get it nice and tender. Caramelized onions and cremini mushrooms are also added for flavour. A bit of just-like-Mom's scalloped potatoes (two servings: $15) makes for a well-matched side.

There are also six soups, what Tomaszeski calls "comfort in a jar," that come in a one-litre portions, providing just the right amount for two big bowls. Thickened with potatoes instead of flour or cornstarch, most of them are gluten-free.

Another light option is the curry rice salad (two servings: $12), which has been in Tomaszeski 's repertoire for a while. He created the tasty salad, with raisins, mango chutney, mixed veggies and cilantro dressing, during his time as executive chef at Holt Renfrew back in the early 2000s.
