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 be complicated, the greatest effort should be made to maintain the integrity and freshness of the products.  

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 need. little more guidance."

Little Piggy Catering was founded in 2006 with the goal of offering innovative catering menus that would highlight regional products and international methods to achieve modern menus, but that clients would still find approachable.

The original business featured a commercial bakery, a cafe, a restaurant, as well as a line of frozen meals. Over the years and with the birth of their two children, the couple decided to focus on the part of the business that they enjoyed and excelled at the most - catering.  The business currently occupies a 4000 sq ft commercial kitchen in Esquimalt, employing 30+  people seasonally.  Little Piggy is committed to being a inclusive workplace, offering liveable wages and benefits for all its employees. 

Despite their growth, Christabel and Patrick are still deeply involved in all aspects of the business. When they have free time away from work they spend their time with their kids, cooking and travelling. Their second home in France provides a much needed respite from the demands of being business owners.
