Back in 2002, Hae-Young Yoon found herself helping a friend in mourning. Her friend’s husband had passed from a heart attack, and she was so overwhelmed with all the preparations. Hae-Young offered to take care of the food catering for the funeral reception. After seeing the family enjoy the food and share memories, Hae-Young wanted to help more families.
From her desire to connect good food with good memories, Hae-Young founded Rosemary Garden. Food brings comfort, inspires joy, expresses caring, honour and respect. It also helps evoke memories which families and friends need most. It is fitting then that the traditional usage of rosemary is to improve memory. At Rosemary Garden, we want to provide a garden full of memories for the people you love.
We will be your warm, caring, helping hand when you need it the most. Our creative ideas, unique food, and artistic presentation will make everything memorable.
Hae-Young has over 25 years of experience in the food and catering industry. She began her career working in a family owned café in Ottawa, and later owned and operated her own café in Toronto. She has catered to university students, corporate clients, churches, and many social events.
With a background in Fine Arts, Hae-Young shows her love for food by displaying everything with great detail and care. To her, food is family, friendship, and art. It is a way to reach across cultures, and share nourishment for more than just the body.
From the first phone call to the last platter on the table, Hae-Young will be the person who oversees everything.
It is her dream to be able to share her passion for food, and art.
