“Thank you so much for the great service & food you provided at the two Land & Sea Mural Blessings at Ogden Point. Your serving staff was dressed appropriately and they moved around the crowd with ease.  I received many compliments on the food and its beautiful presentation. You arrived on time with all the equipment you required and your recommendation on the amount of food was perfect. You and your company were one of the reasons this event was a great success. Thank you again.”

“I attended a small Moroccan Themed dinner party that was catered by Kitchens of Distinctions. The food was delicious and each course was a feast for both the eye and the palate. Shirley and her staff were professional, with Shirley explaining each beautifully presented dish. Finally, we were all impressed that after dessert was served the kitchen was cleaned up with no evidence that a feast had just happened.”

“Thank you Shirley Lang for the incredible Aboriginal fusion dinner you created for our family and guests during the Congress at UVIC this summer.  Our guests raved about the flavours and presentation all evening. You and your staff, Brendan was exceptional. The next morning there was no evidence there was even a dinner party. I said this that evening and I want to say it again, you certainly operate a ‘First Class’ business!  Your customer service and attention to detail is superior! Thank you so much for the very memorable cuisine.”

We hired Chef Shirley Lang to take care of the food and drink for my 50th birthday party. From planning to clean up, Shirley and her crew were outstanding, and our 55 friends were blown away by the quality of the food and service. Falling off the bone tender Moroccan scented moose ribs, perfectly cooked seafoods, interesting and health side dishes, and diverse flavours of the best cuisine from around the world were all brought together elegantly by Shirley Lang. The meal was the highlight of a dinner party that our well-travelled and discerning guests all raved about, for days afterward. Kitchens of Distinction is a well organized, very professional and stylish operation that takes all the stress out of hosting a dinner party. Shirley and her conscientious and capable crew handle everything and go above and beyond food and drink service to handle set up and serving and cleaning afterwards – one of her staff stayed until the wee hours taking care of guests’ needs. Shirley makes sure that you only have to enjoy your gathering and soak up the good feelings of your guests!”
