The Gourmet Group

In 1998, the Gourmet Group’s first business, The BBQ Gourmet, was launched. The BBQ Gourmet was unique in the world of Toronto catering. We offered only one style of cuisine, BBQ, and aggressively promoted Southern style real pit BBQ, to rave reviews across the GTA. Seventeen years later and the BBQ Gourmet remains at the forefront of large, catered BBQ events.

In 2010, we launched The Breakfast Gourmet. Utilizing the same business model as the BBQ Gourmet, The Breakfast Gourmet is filling the need for a full service breakfast event caterer in the GTA. As with The BBQ Gourmet, this new venture focuses on hot food cooked fresh on site, served quickly on time and on budget.

Our latest project, started in the summer of 2012, is the Urban Smoke food truck. The Urban Smoke is a versatile, self-contained food service vehicle, specializing in traditional and fusion BBQ. It can provide your guests with a true food truck experience, one of the hottest trends in food service today.

The Breakfast Gourmet

Great food prepared hot, fast and fresh. Welcome to the world of The Breakfast Gourmet!
Whether you are looking for a simple continental breakfast, a made to order omelette or a crepe station, The Breakfast Gourmet has got you covered with delicious food and professional staff.

Wake up your guests with fresh brewed coffee and an extensive spread of breakfast favourites. We handle all the details, leaving you nothing to do but enjoy your event.


Urban Smoke

Urban Smoke is a versatile food service vehicle, specializing in both traditional and fusion BBQ. We combine elements of different cuisines and marry them with traditional southern style BBQ. Our offering is unique in the Toronto marketplace.

Whenever possible we bring an actual smoker trailer to events and combine the two units so we can have a real on site presence in terms of grilling, smoking and of course entertainment value. Urban Smoke services both public and private events throughout the GTA.
