I had the privilege of having M & R Catering cater a huge event. Jorie and her team were outstanding, professional and the best part was the comments from everyone who attended how much they loved the food. The quality and variety of the many appetizers and desserts were incredible. The presentation of the food was superb and truly exceeded my clients expectations with a huge WOW factor. Thanks to you Jorie and to your team. Cathy Barber - Senior Executive Director Pampered Chef Canada
M and R Catering is a fantastic catering company and is the absolute best around! Jorie Steenson has an incredible talent and her creativity shines through in everything she does! She has a natural flair for developing unique, over the top dishes with your every need understood and incorporated into the perfect function. Her enthusiasm and professionalism makes it a joy to work with her. The food at my event was out of this world and all my guests couldn't stop talking about it. I highly recommend M and R Catering for your next event! Belinda Brown, Whitby, Ontario
I attended one of M & R Catering's cooking class last weekend. I really enjoyed it and I’ve been raving about it to everyone. It was simply awesome. Each and every person who attended told me what a great time they had, how fabulous the food was, how wonderful the facility was and most importantly what a wonderful teacher Jorie was. I learned a lot! As a matter of fact, I left the class and drove directly to the store to purchase a crepe pan. I made seafood crepes the next day using some of the recipes that we went over in the class, and my family loved them. It is not easy to keep an audience captivated but somehow you managed to do that. Thank you so much for an enjoyable day and I am looking forward to the next class. I am sure I will be bringing others with me. Michelle Little, Michelle Little Designs, Pickering, Ontario
I purchased some of M & R Catering truffles to take to a dinner party and I have to say they were the best I've ever tasted...they were a hit with everyone! I will be ordering again! Debbie Green, Sweet EverGray Baby
Marjorie catered a party for me at the beginning of October. My idea was to have an outdoor garden party of sorts out on my deck. I have a large outdoor fireplace and garden doors leading from my Kitchen/Family Room out to the deck. Marjorie came to my home before the party and looked at the space and helped me with suggestions on how to set things up so that it would flow. On the night of the party, Marjorie and her fabulous assistants set everything up and took all of the worry out of my hands. It was fantastic. Now to talk about the food. What can I say other than "to die for". Beyond gourmet and so very elegantly presented. I cannot wait to have another party. Thanks to Marjorie Steenson, Angela and Lauren Webster. Fabulous job ladies!! Patricia Bobyk, Re/Max Jazz Inc., Brokerage
My boys really enjoyed the class today....as we were getting in the car they said "that was really fun I didn't know it would be like that" ...now I'm hoping one day they will be able to cook for me lol. Thank you! Dorota Kobylecki-Simpson
We had a French macaron tower and large cake topper made for our wedding and we could not have been happier with the way the dessert turned out. Everything looked beautiful and tasted amazing, there was nothing left to take home at the end of the night. We had such a great experience dealing with M & R Catering, they are super friendly and very talented! Melanie Turbide
M& R Catering and Cooking School is the exclusive catering sponsor of season two of Maddie & Kiki: The Foraging Sisters. Kiki and I were thrilled when Marjorie and her team signed on for season two because we were so excited to finally taste her delicious cuisine!
We both have high standards, being culinarians ourselves, and upon tasting our first catered crew meal prepared by M & R Catering and Cooking School, we knew that we made a great decision choosing them to be our sponsored caterer. We found the dishes to be bursting with both unique and classic flavours. The food was presented in way that considered visual appeal as well as the ability to practically transport it.
The flank steak was cooked to perfection, a succulent medium rare. The meat had been marinated in herbs and spices that enhanced the flavour of the meat, while not being overpowering. Nothing's worse than a quality steak being over-shadowed by a marinade! The meat was served with freshly baked (home made!!!!!) rolls, blue cheese, sautéed peppers/onions, and enough butter to make a tray of chocolate chip cookies....which we fully appreciated, as running out of butter can be a real tragedy. We ordered a tray that would serve eight and we found it to be a generous portion...and as Italians, we take our portions very seriously! :)
We also had the corn salad, which was fresh, crisp, and everything that a delicious summer salad should be!! The textures of all of the vegetables included in the salad was divine. It paired perfectly with the flank steak.
To top off such an exquisite meal, we feasted on a beautiful platter of the most elegant desserts in the world - hand made macarons! Pink ones! They were so beautiful that we didn't want to eat them.....but we did :)
The entire meal was extremely satisfying and left us feeling like we had just eaten at a five star restaurant, which in reality, we were on a well-deserved break from shooting episode one and dined at an old picnic table in the back of a sweaty gym!
After finishing off the meal feeling happy, full, and beyond satisfied, we felt pleased knowing that the company totally lived up to the respected and valued reputation that it's known for throughout Durham Region. Food is everything for my sister and I, and we would recommend M & R Catering and Cooking School to anyone who enjoys food that's prepared to the highest of standards.

Marjorie, I want to thank you once again for the incredible job you and your team did at my son’s wedding on March 1st. When I first learned that they planned a pot-luck dinner for over 130 people I had no idea what that would look like, or how it would come together. The logistics of such an event was overwhelming. Keeping with the comic book theme of the wedding…M & R Catering saved the day! You gave us the perfect solution! Your idea to contribute to the dinner by adding some dishes that were prepared by M & R Catering plus adding staff to accept the guest’s pot-luck dishes as they arrived, transfer them to chaffing dishes to keep hot food hot and staff to clear dinner plates from the tables to make way for coffee and dessert…was brilliant! The dinner was nothing short of spectacular. The food prepared by M & R Catering was delicious, plentiful and…hot!
Most noted was the Cheese board, eggplant parmesan, chicken (in a delicate wine sauce), roasted potatoes and roasted root vegetables your provided. Your staff did a tremendous job putting all the dishes out so that each guest felt that their entrée was given special attention, right down to cards telling people what the dish was, and who brought it. Your team was professional, accommodating and friendly from beginning to end. You gave us the personal touches that made the process painless! We would gladly recommend your services to anyone planning a wedding or other event.
No matter the cause of celebration, the food, the service and the inherent value in knowing that everything will be taken care of down to the last detail, make working with M & R Catering the easiest decision a person will ever make. Thank you also for the Chamber member discount. Working with a local Chamber member is the very best way to go! We can’t say it enough…thank you, thank you, thank you!
I really enjoyed working with you and hope that I get the opportunity to again sometime soon!" Sincerely, JoAnne Cerovich, Marketing & Communications, Oshawa Chamber of Commerce
We hired M&R Catering for a tween birthday cooking party. Marjorie was amazing...she was professional yet fun, well organized and kept the kids entertained. The cooking party was a huge success! Kelly Bradbury
