CHEF DOUG MCNISH

“I JUST WANTED TO TAKE A MINUTE AND LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT I HAD A VERY LARGE OFF-SITE CATERED EVENT THIS WEEK FOR NEARLY 400 PEOPLE.  I was IN DESPerate need of staff to work, roughly 15 strong cooks each of the last 3 days.  I contacted Matt Binkley and his team at Culinary Search Group at the last minute, and not only were they able to assemble a team of amazing chefs at the drop of a hat for me, they were working around the clock in constant contact with me and highly professional.

I highly recommend them to anyone that is in need of staff for their next event.  I can’t say enough Good!”

MARTIN SHORT

“I had the pleasure of working with Chef Matt Binkley and his team from Culinary Search Group in the summer at my cottage in Muskoka.  Chef Matt exceeded expectations with the quality of food, attention to detail and overall professionalism.

Most importantly, he understands the significance of confidentiality while working in someone’s home.  He’s a great guy with a great personality and sense of humour and a totally positive energy to have in one’s home.   I couldn’t recommend Matt and his team more.”
