About the Chefs

Christabel Padmore and Patrick Simpson each bring with them 20 years of professional experience in the culinary industry in Canada and abroad.

Christabel is a Red Seal chef and former Vice-President of the Island Chef's Collaborative, with a professional background in culinary instruction, catering and event planning. She is also a FoodSafe instructor, a mandatory course for all food service workers in BC, and she holds a Master's degree in adult education from the University of British Columbia.

"When I'm dining at a catered party, it pains me to see boring menus and sloppy executions," says Christabel. She insists that while the food doesn't have to complicated, the greatest effort should be made to maintain the integrity and freshness of the products.  "I like to think that Little Piggy clients get the benefit of both chefs and critics," she says.

Patrick is also a Red Seal chef, with professional experience in Canada, the UK and Australia. In Canada, he has worked as a chef and caterer for Delta Hotels, Coast Hotels and Marriott Hotels.

More than just food, throwing a party or organizing an event is about teamwork and Little Piggy will work with clients to ensure that our role in your event fits seamlessly. "We're good listeners and we ask lots of questions," says Patrick. "Some clients know exactly what they want and we work to make that happen, but others enjoy the chance to talk with us and develop a customized approach."
