As a chef for 25 years, Dennis has seen it all! Working in restaurants from Ontario to Vancouver and eventually planting roots in Alberta, Dennis with his wife and partner Jennifer, opened the doors to Fork + Farm Catered Events in 2011 with the mission to create a catering company like no other. One that focused on unique, handcrafted, and creativity to create spectacular events!

As a born and raised Calgarian to a strong entrepreneurial family, Jennifer has spent her life honing her skill forging unmatched client service and experiences. Jennifer’s love and care for people first led to her career as a nurse, but it was her business spirit that helped lead to the creation of Fork + Farm Catered Events in 2011 with her husband and partner Dennis.

Weddings are some of the most memorable moments we have the opportunity to witness at Fork + Farm and the reception for John + Michelle is at the top of the list. The newlyweds sang a family special song for the bride’s late father who had passed and all those in attendance joined in to sing along in memory. It was such an honor to witness such a lifetime event.
Moments like these motivate us everyday!

"Recently I had the pleasure of attending a wedding that was catered by Farm + Fork and I can honestly say it was a first-rate experience from start to finish. I have been in the hospitality industry for nearly 30 years and have been to and hosted catered events in virtually every situation imaginable. Dennis, Jennifer, and their team were faced with an outdoor logistics challenge and weather situation that would, in most cases, cause a breakdown in service and quality of food. Neither happened. Not only did they adjust and come through, but the food quality and presentation was top notch; they provided a 5-course meal that would rival any catering experience in any location. Well done and kudos to the Farm + Fork Team!"
"As a wedding planner, it has seemed like finding an exceptional caterer in Calgary has been like trying to find the holy grail. The search is finally over. Fork + Farm is absolutely incredible and their food is even better. Exceptional service, amazing attention to detail, personable service, and the food is SO GOOD. Unbeatable."
"Omg. Honestly!!! You hit it out of the park last night. Fork + Farm did such an amazing job! The food was incredible and you looking after all of us (what a horrific job) was outstanding! I can't say enough good things! You are an amazing company doing delicious things! Thank you again!"
"I write this review as a tenured event professional in Canada. We partnered with Fork & Farm for a massively important and high profile event in our corporate head office. Fork & Farm’s team knew exactly how to execute at an extremely high level; the menu design was traditional but inspired – which is exactly our approach. The tastes of those attending are extremely discerning which is what makes this event so high stakes. It was bar none the best offsite catering execution I’ve ever witnessed in 10 years. The food quality was extremely high. It was so much fun to watch Chef, Jenn, and the teamwork. Truly a beautiful job."
"If we could give Fork + Farm 10 stars we would. The prompt call-back, professional discussion about our event, and, ultimately, delivery of a flawless production was impressive every step of the way. We absolutely made the correct decision to work with Fork + Farm on this special occasion. Our guests were gushing! This team is outstanding and we highly recommend them."
"Working with Chef Dennis and Jennifer Jefferies and their team has been an outstanding experience for our team at Lexus of Royal Oak. They have provided us with executive breakfasts, team lunches and, most recently, their Chef Dennis and their team served delicious, custom-designed culinary offerings and cocktails for an event we hosted with over 300 guests. Thank you Chef Dennis and Jennifer for another outstanding event!"
"First off please let me say a HUGE thank you for the beautiful catering. It was top notch! Seriously, I am a huge fan of Fork + Farm! The service and quality of food that you guys provide along with the care and presentation that goes into your product could not have been more spectacular! It was just wonderful. We thank you!"
