Lavender Blue Catering & Prepared Foods

Two Friends with Ambitions

Lavender Blue Catering and Prepared Foods was founded by 2 friends with ambitions to change the expectations around food and what full service catering should feel like. They started in a small kitchen in the back half of a unit in Downtown Orangeville and in 4 years have taken the company to their permanent home at the Athlete Institute on Hwy 9 east. They operate a commercial kitchen and a retail cafe where you can find freshly prepared meals to take home or stay in and enjoy, or select from an extensive menu of frozen take-home meals, soups and desserts.

Terry Doel

The Chef half of the pair, prepares the food with loving hands. She has spent her entire 20-year career in the culinary industry. Everything Terry prepares is from scratch and from local ingredients whenever possible. Terry’s team in the kitchen work tirelessly to ensure their creations are of the highest quality and exceed their clients’ expectations.

Vanessa Kreuzer

The paperwork chef, handling the sales and administrative end of the business. She also has 20 years’ experience in the culinary industry. Vanessa is devoted to ensuring each and every catered event is memorable – thus the motto, ‘Your Special Event is Our Special Event’. Vanessa will sit with her clients and go over every element – even the smallest of detail – to make sure her clients are comfortable with their choices and completely satisfied with the service. Working with Vanessa is always a pleasure – she has a crazy sense of humour!

Lavender Blue catered our nieces’ bridal shower …the tiny tea sandwiches were nothing short of spectacular! Very impressed! I will definitely be using them again.

Lavender Blue Catering was incredible to work with through our entire wedding process and more then delivered on our wedding day. Vanessa sat with us and immediately understood the feeling and food we we wanted…Terry presented us with a delicious tasting meal. They helped me pick out my rentals, and took care of everything on the wedding day. All of our guests were raving about the food and the staff’s professionalism! The girls bring an awesome energy and enthusiasm to everything they do. They went above and beyond; I would highly recommend Lavender Blue Catering to everyone!
