ABBOTSFORD, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwire – Sept. 7, 2010) – The Fraser Valley’s culinary scene has just received a long-awaited boost with the announcement that Abbotsford’s Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre is extending its 5-Star catering service throughout the Valley. The decision to extend their catering and event planning services resulted from an incredible demand from local business owners and foodies for Executive Chef Jonathan Stewart’s culinary creations.
“Many companies that visit us for their meetings and conferences are so amazed by the quality of our culinary services that they often ask if we offer catering for private parties,” says Michael Traquair, General Manager of the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre. “It was a natural decision to take our catering service off-site and provide the same level of experience and quality to local businesses.”
Building on their reputation as THE culinary destination in the Fraser Valley, the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre’s extended catering will service events as diverse as corporate functions and gala receptions to private home parties. Ramada’s team of seasoned event planners, culinary experts and service staff are committed to creating exceptional culinary events that exceed expectations and thrill the most sophisticated palettes.
The culinary offerings are unlike any other in the Fraser Valley, with Executive Chef Jonathan Stewart and his award-winning culinary team putting their talent and passion into every single step of menu preparation. Menus are specially tailored to each event, using only the finest locally sourced ingredients and the freshest local products, including herbs from the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre’s own organic herb garden.
Situated in the heart of British Columbia’s agricultural community in the beautiful Fraser Valley, the extended catering service benefits from the bounty of fresh locally sourced ingredients. According to Executive Chef Jonathan Stewart, “It is this commitment to using the absolute freshest and highest quality ingredients that makes the food so special. It is our mandate to support local suppliers and in turn be kind to our bodies and the planet.” As a proud participant in the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program, the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre’s catering service is committed to keeping our oceans healthy and abundant for generations to come.
The new catering service is now available throughout the Fraser Valley. For more information please visit www.ramadaabbotsford.ca or call the Catering Office at 604-870-6163.
