Kind Words...



"We thoroughly enjoyed our catered event. John was wonderful to work with from the moment we reached out regarding  availability, through the process of finalizing a menu, culminating in a fabulous meal (they also handled the wine pairings to compliment each course). We had wanted to incorporate as many flavours of PEI as possible and Pure Kitchen did just a very creative way. John and his staff offered a perfect balance of professionalism and sense of humour to make for a very memorable evening.
Thank you again for a wonderful experience John!"



"John Pritchard  personifies the ideals of today's hospitality.  He and his team perfectly combine their incredible initiative, idealistic perspective and detailed vision with a work ethic that is beyond compare.  They played a key role in one of the most exciting wedding celebrations ever mounted in Prince Edward Island...For these reasons I chose John Pritchard to cater my wedding and I am honoured to unequivocally

 recommend him for any event."



"John and his team catered our backyard wedding at our home in July 2023... rescheduled from September 2022  because of Hurricane Fiona....... we were able to adjust the date and we are so grateful we did because his food was nothing short of fantastic. He came up with a magical menu that showcased local flavours. All of our guests and vendors commented on the meal. In fact, many of them are STILL talking about it - months later! Everything was absolutely delicious. It is really astounding what they are able to produce outdoors with limited resources. They required very little from us and were very self sufficient. The servers and bartender were also top notch. We can not recommend Pure Kitchen enough and can’t wait for the next chance we have to eat John’s delicious food!"



“We used Pure Kitchen Catering for our wedding last July. They were excellent. The food was so delicious...he was able to provide excellent alternatives for those with food restrictions as well. Pure Kitchen managed the cocktail hour, meals and bar services exceptionaly well  We were delighted with their service and would definitely use them again. We highly recommend John and his team.
