Welcome to The Lazy Gourmet, a premier Vancouver catering and event planning company.


At The Lazy Gourmet, we understand the passion of West Coast living. That starts with our legendary food. We have over 35 years of experience preparing West Coast based cuisine with an emphasis on local, organic, seasonal ingredients. Sustainability plays a big role in everything we do, from reducing waste and our carbon footprint, to being part of the Ocean Wise program. As a longstanding Vancouver catering company, we are committed to making healthy contributions to our community, including shelters and local food banks.

With owner Susan Mendelson at the helm, we have an exceptional team of people who have extensive experience in all levels of event planning and catering in Vancouver, from breakfast meetings for 10 to fully produced multi-kitchen, multi-venue food service programs for 15,000.

With decades of catering experience and Vancouver’s best service, food and staff, we create seamless events that only require you to sit back and relax. That’s The Lazy Gourmet way.
