Secret Chef

Corporate& Private Catering

I'm not just a caterer but a person who's passion and love for cooking will never keep me from pushing the limits and trying new things. Together lets create a menu that caters to the theme of your event, and has your guests coming back for more. This option is great for corporate events, birthdays, weddings and any other special occasion you're looking to celebrate.

Chef for Hire

Whether you’re looking for a romantic date night, client dinners, or a special occasion Secret Chef will create a unique and personal experience. At Secret Chef I provide professional service starting from the table with place settings (if needed), food preparation, cooking, serving and even cleaning. Imagine the restaurant experience but in the comfort of you home.

Drop off Catering

This service includes prompt arrival to venue with professionally trained staff to ensure proper setup. All food comes prepared in disposable containers with the needed tools for your ease. Disposable dishes and utensils needed for setup are also included. Prices are subject to change.

Interactive Dinners

With this option Secret Chef takes the best of a private dinning experience and combines it with the knowledge you'd obtain from a cooking class. With each interactive dinner Secret Chef supplies you with the tools, equipment and food needed for the evening. Enjoy an evening that gives you the choice to be as hands on as you'd like or to just sit back and relax. Make sure to ask about our current 3 course menu options.

The Chef

Since childhood I have had a fascination with food - the colours, textures and flavours completely infatuate me. The excitement of watching my father achieve the perfect grill marks on his steaks, and helping mother bake her infamous "Kugelhopf" pound cake, was enough inspiration for me to turn my infatuation into a thriving career.

As an adult, I have travelled all around the world, learning new cuisines and techniques from chefs everywhere. Developing an understanding for the simplicity of traditional meals and having a very creative edge, I create dishes that are both classic and inspired. My cooking techniques have been perfected, to satisfy everyone - from the most traditional of tastes, to the most adventurous foodies.

Food is my passion and I invite you to explore it with me, in hopes of unveiling your inner chef.

Cheers,

Michael Dickson

     Cooking with Mike was a lot of fun! As we aren’t the best cookers, we decided to go for a basic and healthy dish. So we learned how to make sushi as a starter and for an entree we choose grilled salmon with a chimichurri sauce. Mike was very patient and would show us everything he was doing step by step. First, he would do it himself and then get us to make portions ourselves. He would also repeat the steps verbally before we started our work. Which would help us to memorise it better. The food tasted delicious and we had too much food the process of making it. We would recommend Mike’s cooking and teaching abilities in a heart beat!!

     I had a fantastic time cooking with Mike! A quote comes to mind “The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have the what the hell attitude.” Julia Child. I found Mike to step out of my comfort zone and to try new things. He was very organized and walked me through all tasks methodically. Followed with practical education and hands-on application which may be applied daily or in my case for a special occasion. I couldn’t wait to try out the recipe on my own. I highly recommend booking a session.

     Cooking with Mike was a comfortable and most importantly a fun experience! He taught me how to make schnitzel for the first time and I couldn’t believe how easy and delicious it was. He was patient and teaches useful tips and tricks. It is evident he loves what he does and really enjoys sharing his talent.

I was very impressed with Mike when I used Secret Chef for a client event we held for roughly 35 people. He was extremely easy to communicate and plan with, and created a customized  menu for us that was also very budget friendly. He was prompt on arrival and set up a very professional and attractive display for his menu. He also brought with him a server to pass around some some of the food and she was delightful. All in all I was very happy with Secret Chef and the delicious food. - I look forward to working with Mike again for my next corporate event. with the Secret Chef!”

We used Secret Chef for our gender reveal party. The food and service was absolutely fantastic. Mike is an amazing chef and he received nothing but compliments from our guest throughout the day. The food was delicious and the presentation was great! I would highly recommend him and his services. We will 100% use him again for our next catered event. Thank you Mike
