Culinary Capers Catering is a full service off premise catering company that has been serving the greater Vancouver area since 1986. We cater to a complete range of clients serving every type of function including working lunches, elegant cocktail receptions, distinctive corporate events, formal weddings and company barbecues.

To complement our catering services, Culinary Capers has developed three divisions of the company which offer a full range of optional services for clients. Best of the West BBQ Catering provides an affordable alternative to customers hosting large parties and picnics on a limited budget. PartyArt Design is an independent operating division that offers décor, floral and overall event design. Culinary Cakes produces wedding and specialty cakes and signature confections for events.

Company CEO Debra Lykkemark heads a catering team that is dedicated to producing cutting edge cuisine, innovative presentation, contemporary design and professional service. Culinary Capers creative team has been honoured with many national and international awards by the special events and catering industry. In 2014, the company was the recipient of the International Caterers Association CATIE Award for Best Barbecue or Picnic Menu. Other recent accolades include Chef of the Year Catie Award for our Executive Chef Margaret Chisholm from the International Caterers Association. This celebrated award honours Chef Margaret’s 17 years of leadership with our company, the community, and the culinary industry.

Culinary Capers has catered three Olympic Games. During the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, Culinary Capers executed Olympic events for high profile clients, including NIKE, Coca Cola, NBC, Royal Bank of Canada, Shaw Communications, VANOC and Sochi 2014 House. The company was chosen as the exclusive caterer for the BC Canada Pavilion in Beijing in 2008 and for BC Canada Place during the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy in 2006.

Excited about the opportunity for growth in the Beijing market, the company opened a sister company, Culinary Capers Beijing Catering and Special Events, in 2008.
