About Chef Lekker

My name is Wouter Schipper, and I’m a catering chef, and you can hire me for events and parties.Catering chef Vancouver

I am from Holland, and I’ve worked as a Chef for over twelve years. I studied Culinary Arts in Munich, Germany in 2003 and had since worked in different places around the world. My cooking style is rooted in European cuisine with some Indonesian, Indian and North African influences. I love singing in the kitchen, dancing in front of the stove, and I put my heart into everything I make. Oh yeah…and I’m very very tall…

What is a Catering Chef?

And where does my catering service fit in?

I am a chef that is specialized in catering, a combination of a personal chef and caterer.

As a personal chef, I cater to people at their home or event space. I am present during the event or party and cook on location. I create tailor-made menu’s and offer flexible service.
There is where my expertise is, and that is what I love doing.


Lekker can mean “delicious”, “nice”, or even “gorgeous” (That’s what I hope you’ll think of my food!).
Even though “lekker” is a universal word and can be used in almost any phrase, It is only common in the Netherlands, Belgium and South-Africa.
