Chef Parker Catering and Events was founded by Chef Andrew Parker in 2010. Chef Parker’s passion for food began at a young age. As a boy he enjoyed helping his mother who is a Red Seal Chef in her restaurant kitchens and watching his idol Mark McEwan on television. By age 17 he had his first experience in a professional kitchen, working for a large Calgary restaurant, at which time he decided to make his passion a career and study with SAIT’s Culinary Program. Chef Parker spent eight years honing his skills, cooking with many great mentors in the Alberta culinary industry.
Chef Parker has had the opportunity to cook for royalty and celebrities. Culinary travel is a passion of his!! He is trying to experience culinary delights from the cultures of the world and create a fusion that incorporates those flavors into his dishes.
Chef Parker is a recent recipient of the People’s Choice Award in Edmonton’s "Next Iron Chef: Battle of the Kitchens" which he organized to support the Ronald McDonald House Charity. Chef Parker’s creative and unique events have been featured in local Edmonton Media outlets such as The Edmonton Journal , The Edmonton Examiner and Metro News
Chef Parker is getting noticed for his generosity within the Edmonton community; recently being nominated for Edmonton’s Top Forty under Forty and Edmonton’s Do-gooder of 2012. It would be our pleasure to work with you on your next event. Feel free to contact chef today!
