Here are some of the testimonials provided for me by past and present clients:
‘In December 2013,(we) hosted a joint birthday / anniversary evening party for 50, at our home and consulted with Justin to prepare appetizers, platters and a cake. He met with us twice to go over choices, details and options, made appropriate recommendations and helped us decide on quantities. …he was extremely attentive and professional. And there were so many compliments from our guests – on everything. The quantities were generous, the quality superb and the presentation was beautiful and fresh. Having Justin look after the food removed that particular stress completely from the party prep. I cannot recommend him highly enough and would definitely make arrangements with Justin, for another occasion in the future.’

We and our guests were really impressed by the quality and variety of the food which was truly delicious. We know that you sourced the ingredients with care using local farm produce where possible.

“Dennis and I just wanted to thank you again for such a delicious dinner. Each and every course was mouthwatering. The unexpected micro salad and brie plate were just the cherry on top! It was wonderful to be able to enjoy the meal in the comfort of our own home; it was an evening we won’t soon forget. Thank you for making our Valentine’s Day so special!
Erin & Dennis – Ottawa

“The menu prepared by Justin at landwaterfork was exactly what we were looking for, while at the same time unique and unexpected! The food itself was delicious,flavoured to succulent perfection, and completely West Coast. True decadence! Thank you again!” -Pamela, Vancouver
“It was the easiest and most relaxed dinner party I have ever had. My guests and I had so much fun trying the delicious new ingredients that we had never seen before. The food was fresh and healthy, creative and utterly FANTASTIC. We all left the table feeling very satisfied without being over stuffed. I would have him back in a New York minute.” – Mary Ella, North Vancouver
“We hired Justin to be chef for an afternoon boat cruise arranged for our staff, and his cuisine and on board service was easily a highlight of our event. Justin demonstrated exceptional professionalism, skill, and in a very relaxed manner. He had less than two days to prepare (and customize) the menu, and to make all preparations to serve 16 people from a very tight ‘yacht kitchette. We were treated to a very memorable feast that included both Western and Asian elements, and the amount of food served was spot on for our group. Our event would not have been the same were we to have simply ‘ordered great food.’ Having Justin aboard to organize and serve was key as we were free to enjoy fishing and hanging out. Word of advice: Make sure Justin’s halibut ceviche antipasto is on your menu.” – Jason C, Vancouver“The freshness of the ingredients and the marriage of different spices and flavours provided an enjoyable adventure for the palette. The care which was taken to prepare the meal and the thoughtfulness which was taken in preparing a menu fit for the season clearly demonstrates his knowledge and love for food. Would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.” – Claudia (foodie) “Whether you’re entertaining business associates, family or friends, Justin will be sure to deliver a delicious, stress free menu which is sure to impress your guests. Whether it’s appetizers, salads, side dishes or mains, Justin uses only fresh ingredients with a great combination of flavours.He’ll work with you to ensure he designs a menu that will be thoroughly enjoyed by all. We had Justin prepare a dinner for a group of our tennis friends after a friendly tennis tournament. My friends are still talking about what a great meal it was. And, instead of stressing over preparing a meal, I got to play tennis instead. So, do what I did — you do the playing and let Justin do the cooking. You won’t be disappointed!” – Suzanne, Richmond, BC
My wife and I recently held a small party for 22 of our friends. I think I gave Justin all of 3 days notice to squeeze us into his already busy schedule and complete the planning, shopping, preparation and full on production! Wow-what a well spent few dollars by us! The food was outstanding-all 8 dishes/platters he prepared for us were truly delicious. All items were super fresh and ready to go on time, well in advance of the day’s deadline as agreed to. His presentation was excellent, and his culinary skills match up against any of the chef’s cuisine in Vancouver that I have ever tasted.Thanks again Justin, we would not hesitate to use your services again nor recommend you to others! Great value, exceptional food.” – Rich and Jennifer, Vancouver
