Taste to Savour Catering
Working in a sweltering kitchen for hours at a time can be a struggle, but Chef Tracy Rowand has spent more than a decade doing just that. Since graduating with honors from Dubrulle Culinary Institute in 1995, Chef Rowand has been a mainstay of the Vancouver food industry. Currently, she helms Taste to Savour Catering, taking fresh, seasonal ingredients and turning them into customized spreads for weddings, corporate events, and weight-lifting competitions for tables. Sample menus stand as a tribute to Rowand’s training and talent, brimming with creative dishes such as mussels in green curry broth, salmon and chive fritters, and grilled lamb crostini with artichoke puree. Rowand also recently expanded her enterprise with a café, where visitors can sample plates of quiche, naan pizza, and other unique nibbles.
