VALIS began as a private chef service/catering in Toronto started by me, Amira Eskenazi .
Things have gone so well for me that I decided to open a brick and mortar in The Junction, a bustling and exciting community in West Toronto.
I prepare daily grab and go meals, salads, soups and desserts. I also prepare in house canned goods like sauces, stews, soups, tapenades, jams and glazes as well as a hot prepared veg and meat meal daily from a vast international repertoire.
Aside from that, I can cater meals or party food with at least 72 hours notice. I work with clients to craft a menu that will suit any budget and make for an enjoyable and delicious experience.
Amira Eskenazi has spent over 20 years traveling the world working in fine dining, as head chef on tour for Cirque du Soleil for 5 years and as a yacht chef for 7 years on some of the world's most exclusive private yachts.
She has also volunteered for many years internationally and is a member of the Board of Directors of Les Dames d'Escoffier in Miami. Here she worked alongside some of the most prestigious women in the industry, fundraising and helping to advance young women and women in transition into professional food service with yearly scholarships.
