Sweet Isa Catering Inc. was inspired by two extraordinary women. The first taught me how to execute the most extravagant party and the second whose dream was to open her own quality take out shop, taught me how to cook and the value of family time.
I can still remember her laughter the first time I attempted to make red sauce. To say the least, it did not come out anywhere as amazing as hers. I love what I do. To me it is a creative outlet and it truly frees my soul. I can stand for hours on end in the kitchen designing a menu or decorating an extravagant cake. I never thought that I would love to cook and bring my dreams to life as much as I do, but I do! Catering brings me joy.
To see someone take that first bite and observe their initial “no lie” response to what I have created is wonderful. I finally decided to give it a try outside of my home and open Sweet Isa Catering in 2007. Since then it has been a whirlwind of events. I hope that you too will “taste” the love and appreciation that I have for my ingredients and vision.

"We hired Isa to do the catering for my daughter's cocktail reception wedding. The food presentation was fabulous, everything was fresh and delicious, and the service outstanding. Every detail was taken care of and the timing went off without a hitch. Isa is a joy to work with, She is open, accommodating, flexible, and organized. And a darn good chef and a really nice person. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and recommend her for your next event. Thank you, Isa for making the day so special. Raves are still coming in!!"
" I cannot say enough good things about Isabel and her team! She has looked after the food for us at two celebrations in our home. The food is always delicious and beautifully presented. Amazing lady! "
" I'm not sure what I can say about Sweet Isa and her fabulous team that is nothing less than spectacular. I just wish there were more stars!! I was married in June of this year (2017) and Isa played such a key role in making my day the perfect day it was. Our wedding was in our backyard and she handled everything from the tent, the linens, the tables and chairs and all of our serving needs. The theme of our wedding was casual elegance and Isa and her team took our visions and made them a reality. We wanted a simple yet elegant cocktail reception with tasty appetizers and finger foods. From the moment I contacted Isa I knew I had found my foodie, my soul sister!! I had reached out to several caterers and Isa's responses were by far the quickest and most thorough. She met with us on several occasions and offered up her expertise on any concerns we had. No question we had was brushed aside...she made sure we were both comfortable with all of our choices. It was so nice and reassuring to have one person handle everything...with the help of her amazing staff she made the day flow flawlessly and perfectly. One of my favourite parts of the whole experience with Isa was the tasting of the menu we chose. She came to our home and cooked up everything we had decided on...this was such a personal touch that I find so many other companies miss the boat on. This gave us the opportunity to make any changes we wanted to make and gave us some insight into where she came from, how she got where she is today and certainly allowed us to share in her passion for food. Everything was scrumptious and all the ingredients were fresh and locally sourced. Her passion certainly shows in her food!! And really what caterer gives you a big hug when you walk in the door and tells you how beautiful you look...and then of course shoos you out of your kitchen to go and have fun!! :-) I can't recommend Isa enough but if you want whatever vision of an event you are planning to come to life...call Sweet Isa and you will not regret it. I wish I could re-do the day over just so I can re-hire her...but there will be anniversary parties in my future and I have already passed on her info to family members that are getting married next year!! People will talk about your party for years to come...our families are still raving about the food and the staff and how amazing it all was!! Isa - thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!! Hopefully we'll be able to come to a cooking class soon!!"
"We were very impressed with the quality of food and service. Isa did a fabulous job catering our open house from start to finish."
" I am so happy that I chose Sweet Isa to cater my husband's surprise birthday party. She did an amazing job and exceeded expectations. The charcuterie table was spectacular. Chef Isa selects only fresh ingredients for her culinary creations. I loved how she executed the farm to table and rustic chic concepts for this celebration. Excellent taste and presentation of every plate. Her knowledge of combining the flavors of the season in a delicate way is impressive. You can tell how passionate Chef Isa is about every single detail, from the first meeting to the final execution of the event. I can't wait to hire her again for our next celebration. Chef Isa is an inspiration. Thank you!” - Wendy
I was the recipient of Isa's artistry as it was my surprise birthday party. The setting was very elegant yet kid friendly. The menu appealed to everyone's individual tastes. No detail was spared as Isa did an excellent job carefully preparing the wonderful meal despite controlled and sometimes uncontrolled chaos going on all around her. Isa definitely made the night very memorable for me. Thank you Isa!” - Mark

" We had an absolute fantastic experience with Sweet Isa Catering! We were a bit last minute in booking a wedding caterer as we planned our wedding quite quickly. Isabel was really quick to respond to everything, sent us tons of different menu and price point options, and even met us at our venue to help plan the set/flow for our day! In addition to our main meal (which we received nothing but compliments on!) Isa also arranged all the cocktail hour/late night food, refreshments table, bar, rentals, servers, everything! She truly took a TON of stress off of us and let us enjoy the planning process. I would 100% recommend Sweet Isa! She really helped to make our day and the planning leading up to it stress free and enjoyable! We couldn't be happier with the food and the service. Great choice!"
" We just wanted to thank you again for making our girl’s weekend so special with all the wonderful food, cooking demo, your talent and wonderful spirit!"
