Gluten Free Catering Menus
In this day an age, many either make the choice to go gluten-free for lifestyle reasons, or those who are gluten sensitive or completly celiac. At Stir, we understand how to create indulgent dishes while adhering to dietary restrictions.
We understand those with gluten sensitivities can react from even the smallest of crumbs, so we carefully monitor our process to prevent cross-contamination that can occur from using utenstils used with regular pasta or other ingredients. We know that certain seasonings and sauces can add gluten to these naturally gluten-free products, so we never assume an ingredient is gluten-free.
Ranging from grilled romaine lettuce salads, savory roasted brussel sprouts, or our popular Peruvian Chicken or our iceberg lettuce wee tacos – gluten-free doesn’t have to mean bland and boring or resembling the taste of cardboard on your tongue.
Stir Catering offers fresh, restaurant quality, and inspired menus for gluten free catering events in Edmonton. Choose from an array of options to suit the food service for your event from our popular flourless brownies or fan favourite salads, as well as a range of options for gluten free desserts. Or, you may decide to stick to foods that are naturally gluten-free such as fresh meats, fish, poultry, legumes, dairy, rice, potatoes, fruits, and vegetables.
Unfortunately, our buffet options aren’t as pandemic friendly and are currently on the back burner – but should return later in the year. As a local business, we are proud to serve a variety of happy food from our kitchen to yours. Consider incorporating a style of cuisine to your gluten free event such as Greek – traditionally focused on grilled meats and vegetables or chickpeas, or Thai – with their use of fish sauce (wheat free unlike soy sauce found in most other Asian cuisines), rice paper or rice noodles, and jasmine rice. Of course, with creative substituting you can enjoy decadence from any cuisine style when you choose Stir for your food service.
We are able to provide entirely gluten free menus, or simply a few gluten free additions, just let us know! If you’re looking for more inspiration for menu ideas for your next event you can browse our menus or take a look at this collection of 100% gluten free catering ideas.

The Stir Pantry
Looking to go contactless? Besides being a top choice for catering downtown Edmonton, we also offer a wide variety of ready to go meals, desserts, and other pantry items which are available to order online via the Stir Pantry. Recently, we began a new online store initiative to help Edmontonians with easy access to delicious restaurant quality meals throughout the pandemic.
Our mission is to make high quality food that incorporates local fresh ingredients both affordable and convienent for northern Alberta. We know how important the quality of the food is to our customers.

This widely varies, depending on the type of catering options: the event, the menu chosen and the service requirements (drop off vs. sit down celebration). Lunches can start as low as $15 per person and go upwards to around $30. Weddings, because of the service staff required on site, start at $50 per person.
It depends on the event.
We generally do not offer refunds on wedding deposits; however because of COVID, we’ve since adjusted our approach to the option of a partial refund. It’s important to understand that wedding deposits are not just a payment method for upcoming events (but of course when all goes well, that is the most seamless way to use the funds). The other use for a deposit is a promise to fulfill the contract, even in light of circumstances that cause a downsize, reschedule or use it in an alternate way. So when we get other inquiries into a date, if we have the deposit, we can confidently turn down other business. Being a small business that values quality above all else, this is an important tool to ensure our future success because we purposely limit weddings to one per weekend.
Corporate events are often held on weekdays, which are in less demand. In this case we would consider refunds as long as ingredients and staff costs have not yet been incurred.
It depends on the event.
As a general rule, we do not charge for gratuity for serviced events of groups over 80 guests. Because weddings are such a large cost to families, we do not charge gratuity on weddings, regardless of size.
Other costs to consider are rental of plates, cutlery, glassware and linens. This is something that we can arrange, or we can advise our clients what they need to arrange separately.
We have travelled as far as 1.5 hours outside of Edmonton. Any further would require hotel accommodation and additional fees for time away from our families. We service the entire Edmonton metropolitan area including Sherwood Park, St Albert, Leduc, Beaumont, Fort Saskatchewan, and Spruce Grove. We’re located in South Edmonton in Ellerslie (Summerside), and offer free food delivery to the area via our online store.
Yes! We make everything from scratch and can accommodate any dietary restriction.
Outside of pandemic times, we don’t tend to book events with less than 20 guests on weekends, which are usually in high demand. During COVID, we are more flexible on mimimums.
It depends. We are currently booking 1-2 years in advance for weddings – weddings take the longest amount of time for planning. For smaller events such as lunches, we only need 48-72 hours notice, if the date is available. If the event falls on a weekend during the months of May-October, the more notice given the better, due to the high demand. Some events, such as annual fundraising galas, will reserve our services 1 year in advance.
Yes! For weddings especially, but also for anyone looking for something out of the box or in particular, we are happy to use our creative side to come up with one-of-a-kind menu options resulting in delicious food dishes.
