It was such a pleasure working with both you and BWAK over the past 4 years!
The food at the wedding was incredible, and we had many people tell us that it was the best wedding food they ever had! It's hard to think of any critiques as the day seemed to go so flawlessly! I’ve also had soo many people telling me how amazing those chicken taco canapés were! We wished we ordered more!!
You really did such an amazing job creating and executing the whole day - it was just what I had envisioned but more. I literally started crying when I walked into the venue for the first time before the ceremony (and the only actual moment I cried the whole day!) just because everything was so beautiful and magical looking. Every detail was so perfect, and I can’t thank you enough for helping to create that feeling for me. I had always worried that our wedding might not feel like our wedding since we were already married, but that was not the case whatsoever. It was truly such a perfect and beautiful day - one we will always remember forever.
Thank you so much for your patience over the last 4 years and for really working with me to create the wedding of our dreams!

The BWAK team is talented, fresh and very professional. From my experience, they go above and beyond to make the event a success and think of beautiful finishing touches, without being prompted. I am a micro-manager, so of course I chatted through what I wanted things to look like, and they are 100% on the same page, if not one step ahead. They have an eye for design and providing that finishing touch to each dish and to overall presentation of their food. They are on trend with menu selection and will share a tasting menu with you. Their food is amazing! Personal Event: BWAK catered my wedding and I never had to step in to remind them of the schedule – which is literally the best situation you can have. They provided insight and suggestions to improve the menu and changed items based on feedback, after a tasting – no attitude or issue. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and usually worthy of being on a magazine cover (sorry, but sometimes that is important to people). Corporate Event: BWAK catered and managed some event aspects of a logistically challenging long table dinner for an elite group of women athletes and Editors and Chefs from NYC, at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC. The event was outdoors, and the kitchen was a LONG walk from the long table that was on the top a hill – the service was perfectly timed and executed. To be honest, BWAK was the only part of the event that went off without a hitch. They were selected personally by Nike (the client) from a list of Vancouver caterers – says a lot! Long story short, I will use them again and always recommend them to friends and clients looking for a talented catering company.
On August 29th, 2015 I married the love of my life at the beautiful Dr Sun Yat Sen Garden. August 29th, 2015 was also recorded in Vancouver history as the worst weather storm to hit the Lower Mainland in the past decade but we didn’t notice a single rain drop or gust of wind because BWAK was beyond prepared for everything that Mother Nature threw our way. In five simple words, it was the perfect day! In the months leading up to our extra special day, BWAK met with us at our convenience to go through every little detail and made sure to make our wedding weather proof too. They thought outside the box and helped us create a truly unique and delicious menu that blended our favorite childhood foods and culture with contemporary dishes that met our taste. Our guests shared that it was the best food they had ever experienced at a wedding and we can’t help but agree. We can’t wait to call BWAK when we have our one year wedding anniversary and for every other celebrated life event!” Since our big day two wedding guests have called on BWAK for events for EA Sports and a fundraiser for the Liberal Party attended by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Brandon and the Boy With a Knife team are absolutely fantastic to work with! For my Photoshop Bootcamp it is really important to serve lunches that not only satisfy the tastebuds of a very discerning crowd with various dietary needs, but also look beautiful for photo ops. (We creatives love a good #foodie post!) My past students still rave about their #PsBootcamp meals, and I have never seen so many fashion gals load up with second helpings. Boy With A Knife is without a doubt my go-to caterer. I’ve worked with Brandon in the past for magazine photoshoots, and he never disappoints in taste, appearance, or creativity.
