We are a socially-responsible and innovative cooking school and catering company.
In early 2016, Start Fresh took root with founder Michael Buffett in the central Okanagan. A chef on a simple mission, he and his team began facilitating culinary education programming to inspire people about food. Recognizing a greater need within local social service organizations, the non-profit program has now expanded to include teaching of employment and necessary life skills, while creating access to long-term meaningful employment. This is how our team was formed, and the talented chefs involved now bring the same knowledge and skills into the spotlight of a Collaborative Kitchen, creating a truly community-based kitchen that cater events, and facilitate boutique cooking classes. We cater weddings in Kelowna, as well as catering for offices and events all over the Okanagan.
