About Gather Catering

Gather Catering is the passionate pursuit of husband and wife duo Camilla Sherret and Newell Orfei.

Gather Catering is passionate about supporting local farmers and artisans, which is why our menu features locally sourced ingredients that celebrate the vibrant flavors of the season.

Our mission is to coordinate your event so you and your guests can effortlessly gather, eat and connect.


A born-and-raised Calgarian, Camilla has worked in many venues of the food industry over the last 20 years throughout Calgary, New York, Washington D.C and Banff. She studied health-supportive culinary arts at The Natural Gourmet Institute in Manhattan. 


She then continued her training by working as a personal chef, caterer and in restaurants throughout the Eastern United States. There she had the opportunity to work for The New York Yankees, Lenny Kravitz and Ralph Lauren. 


Upon returning to Canada she opened, and was the owner-operator of, The Bison Restaurant & Lounge in Banff.  She returned to Calgary and catering in 2009, which has provided her and Newell the opportunity to work with many amazing clients on a wide variety of events

Owner / Chef

Newell is a self-trained chef from Calgary, Alberta.  He started his culinary journey at fifteen and has worked all roles within the front and back of the house throughout several restaurants and catering companies. Most recently, as a private Chef to high-end personal and corporate clients.


Newell attributes his success as a chef to three things:  

His early influence of, from scratch, elevated food growing up within an Indo-Trinidadian and Italian heritage (his grandmother is still his greatest culinary mentor).

His global approach, having worked and travelled in Manila, Hong Kong, California, Mexico and the Caribbean. 

His passion to continue learning and creating both old and new world dishes.

"My approach to food is finding the highest quality locally-sourced ingredients, cooking them with proven technique, and presenting them in a creative fashion giving my guests a beautiful, delicious experience to remember"




“My husband and I hired Camilla and her team, through a referral, to cater a business dinner in our home. From the first telephone conversation through the detailed consultation leading up to the date of the event, we were confident we had chosen the right company. Every detail was handled professionally, yet with warmth and friendliness. Not only did Camilla curate the perfect meal, she helped us create the appropriate welcoming atmosphere with music, flowers and beverages. By choosing Gather Catering for our event, my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the company of our guests that evening. Even the clean-up was taken care of. The event was a success. Thank you to Gather Catering.  Looking forward to working with you again.”
