ABOUT ISLAND CULINARY SERVICE
We are a local company, serving Victoria and Sidney on the Saanich Peninsula. We believe in promoting local businesses, and pride ourselves on serving locally-grown produce, meats, seafoods, and baked goods, when available. We care about our environment and follow environmentally-friendly practices such as composting and recycling of oils and other materials.
A SHORT HISTORY
Graham Little, owner and executive chef, formed Island Culinary Service over 30 years ago and has provided the Victoria area with catering services that garnered both accolades and awards.
WHAT WE DO
Graham's reviews and awards confirm his excellent culinary skills. Graham, plus an amazing team of professional chefs, servers and staff, will help you put together an event that you will be proud of. We pride ourselves on being more than just a full-service catering company.
ICS has successfully managed catered events such as large, multi-day international conferences serving in excess of 500 people per day. But we also enjoy catering an intimate backyard family gathering.
We offer fully-customizable menus using only the best locally-sourced products, when available, with attention to special dietary needs when required.
We can give you advice on your time-line and general setup.
We are happy to coordinate with your venue as well as your event planner.
ICS has fully qualified and professional serving staff. We can also recommend bartenders if needed.
Graham is friendly, approachable and client-centred, and looks forward to meeting with his clients in person to discuss the event in detail. We offer a wide range of services for any budget.
