Some of the food was the best we tasted in Toronto! I am no stranger to fine dining but this was beyond my expectations. It is hard to believe that the event took place in my own home and that all the clean up was magically whisked away at the end of the evening. This was one of the best parties we ever gave and guests were unanimous in their enthusiasm.

What an incredible evening! You outdid yourselves last night. I had a special vision for our party and you really understood and delivered just what I wanted. The food not only tasted delicious, the presentations were just wonderful. I also must compliment you on such professional staff. They were all wonderful, attentive, and very professional. I have been getting emails and calls all morning. I think everyone had a delightful evening and felt privileged to be part of something so special. Many, many thanks.

Everything was so delicious as always. Your crew was so professional and well delicious too! Thank you for making our event extra special. Everyone left with both their hearts and their tummies filled! Thank you for your support, your expertise and your talents.

Dana Florence

Co-Founder of THREE TO BE

THREE TO BE has had the privilege of using Toben Food by Design as our official caterer for the past two years at our annual charity fundraisers. Toben Kochman and his staff have always exceeded our expectations with delicious food, innovative ideas, and exceptional service. They are most accommodating and reassuring in making every event enjoyable and outstanding. Our annual fundraising gala, Stems of Hope, is an event that caters to 1,000 sophisticated guests, held at the Kool Haus in downtown Toronto. Our vision was to have every detail of the event support our theme; so that the guests feel that they are truly art of an ‘experience’. Toben and his staff were able to honour our vision by going above and beyond with their culinary creations. The theme of this past gala was ROBOTICA and all of the food was presented in a futuristic state-of-the-art progressive manner and more importantly, it was absolutely delicious. Toben Food by Design has consistently exceeded people’s expectations and our guests are still talking to this day about how phenomenal the service and food was. It has been our pleasure working with Toben Food by Design and we would highly recommend their services to everyone.

The food was amazing, the presentation was beautiful and the service was superb! You really outdid yourselves. It made the night extra special for the anniversary couple and everyone had a great time. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone who asks and will be calling on you for future events!

Suzanna Chang

Administrative Coordinator at University of Toronto

As an understatement, I have to say that we were and are VERY impressed with your company and your product. This is the first time in the history of a 6 year annual seminar that the Clinical Science Division will be using a company outside of U of T for our catering needs. You delivered above and beyond what I expected based on our phone conversations, and the flavour profiles of your food were complex and well balanced. Please pass our compliments on to the chef. We will be using your services as much as possible in the future. Thank you again, it was truly a pleasure.

Isadore Sharp

Founder and Chairman of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts

Congratulations and thank you for the superb job you did in catering our granddaughter’s Engagement Party and the fundraiser for the Distress Centre Concert by Twilight. We have received exceptional comments on both the food and the service at these two events. My wife, Rosalie, and I wish to thank you and your staff for your conscientious efforts in making these important functions such a great success. Again, congratulations!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful, delicious food we had on Saturday night. All the guests at the party raved about the food and all of it was eaten! Thanks again and I look forward to working with you in the future.

I have had the pleasure to work with Toben and his team on several occasions and can attest to their outstanding service. So confident am I with this company, that I personally have used Toben. Their food is always prepared to perfection and is consistently of the highest quality. They are creative in menu selections and presentation is a top priority. Toben has surrounded himself with an excellent team who share his commitment to delivering the very best they can to each and every one of their clients. It is without the least bit of hesitation that I refer Toben to many of my clients and I have yet to encounter anyone who has walked away dissatisfied. Quite the contrary, all have had only praise for his company.



Thank you for a wonderful evening and fabulous food. We received many, many raves about the food. I was delighted and thrilled to have you take care of us and be such a pleasure to work with. Thank you again!

Three weeks after the fact and friends are still raving about this incredible party we threw for my wife! I wanted to write this letter to you and your staff to compliment you on a perfect evening. From the initial planning to the ultimate execution, you were a pleasure to work with. From all of the pictures I had in my mind of how the night would go and how much fun everyone would have, you exceeded in every area. I would be happy to tell anyone that is considering your services not only what an exceptional visionary, food designer and event manager that you are, but also how enjoyable I found it working with you to create this masterpiece. This was our third time working together and I whole-heartedly look forward to our next event together. They get better every time.

I want to thank you so much for making my at home lunch so special. The food was outstanding, each course presented like a piece of art, and the taste was spectacular. The feedback from the ladies was wonderful and I hope it brings a lot of future business your way. It’s always a pleasure to have you cater an event and I hope we can enjoy the possibility again in the near future. Many thanks again for such a perfect afternoon.

Fast forward to the evening and it could not have been any better. The staff were AWESOME and food was DELICIOUS.

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that the client was totally impressed with the food catered the last two nights! You have won over yet another of our longstanding clients!!!
