Friendor Friday Spotlight: Aphrodite Cooks


After many years in this wonderful yet crazy industry we have had the opportunity to work with some amazing vendors. If there is one thing better than a professional vendor, it would have to be a great friendor (vendor + friend = friendor)!

Our clients always ask, “Do you have a preferred vendors list?”, “What makes them preferred?”, “ What do they have to offer?”. We reached out to our friends and interviewed them just for you!

Find out how long they have been in business, some advice/tips, and who they are through our “Friendors Blog Series”.

To kick off our inaugural series, we sat down with Vanessa Yeung, the amazing lady-boss of Aphrodite Cooks, a west-Toronto catering company that provides deliciousness all across the GTA. From working as Ed Belfour's personal chef, to being trained as an apprentice at one of Canada's top restaurants, Scaramouche, Vanessa opened Aphrodite Cooks in hopes to bring people together in love and food.

Here's our chat below:
