About Marco

For Marco Sorbera, simplicity, tradition, and family are all concepts capturing his experience and relationship with the dishes he creates.

 

From his earliest memories Marco had an unexplainable interest in exploring taste and preparing authentic foods. His introduction came early in life as an astute observer of his Sicilian grandmother, Rosaria. “Nonna Sara” from Galbato cooked every meal using clay pots in her stone fireplace. The preparation and time spent always made her meals healthy and loved by the family. Rosaria’s tools and methods left indelible memories that Marco still draws from. As Marco explains, “There’s something about tasting food made in a clay pot over a fire. It’s amazing”.

 

Marco’s mom, Linda, also left her mark on her son.  She was born and raised in Rome. “Romans are viewed differently. They’re bolder and it shows in their cooking,” says Marco. Making scratch pastas and flavourful lamb, Linda’s dishes always exuded the bold Roman style, which can be tasted in Marco’s simple yet powerful lamb marinades.

 

Today, Marco draws on his past to feed the present. He believes that “food is the health and strength of a family”. Cooking for his wife, daughters, son in laws, grandchildren, family and friends, Marco always cooks exquisite dishes using as many simple home-grown ingredients. He’s intrigued by the simplicity of clean taste when combining his backyard herbs and self-made spices. Before a meal is even conceived Marco invests time in the preparation. He makes his sauces, spiced oils and peppers, and cured meats, allowing him to explore his creative side. Indeed, Marco’s creativity and adventurous side are on display in any dish he puts on a table.

 

Marco’s passions for simple yet whole foods, time-honoured traditions, and his family-first approach all have infused his love and approach to food.

Testimonials

"With no hesitation, I would recommend Marco of Masi Catering.

He did a fantastic job at an event a friend of mine hosted and so I offered him the opportunity to cater a large function for me at my home.  He did not disappoint!  Everything went off without complications.  The staff was fantastic and the food quality was exceptional."

“I had the pleasure of experiencing a scrumptious Italian lunch prepared by Masi Catering which was hosted by my previous employer.   Marco’s veal parmigiana was the best I have ever tasted!  His roasted potatoes and vegetables were simply incredible.  The flavours in all his dishes were perfectly balanced which truly confirms Marco’s culinary talent.  Needless to say, my husband and I hired Marco to cater one of our private dinner parties.  Our dinner guests were amazed at Marco’s authentic creative dishes and everyone asked for seconds.  Also, his entire catering team made the evening a memorable event!  We will definitely hire Masi Catering again.”

I highly recommend Masi Catering! Amazing authentic Italian food along with Marco’s personal touch in every dish he creates is what makes it truly a pleasure to experience. I recently hired Masi Catering for a departmental Christmas party at Toronto East General Hospital, and was not disappointed in any way; I received great compliments from our staff. Customer service from Marco was very professional yet personal….you can tell he loves what he does; Looking forward for the next opportunity to hire Masi Catering again.

Hi Mark and Michelle, thank you both so very much for catering Caileys engagement party.

 

I hope you’re not too exhausted today. The food was spectacular. Every dish had its own unique taste but all complimented each other. I know you told me that the veal had great reviews but your chicken was a second close. I wish you could have heard everyone’s comments. You might have a few calls for future catering jobs.

 

Mark I know you are busy but I have another job for when you retire. How about starting a cooking school. I’ll be the first to sign up. And if you take us to Italy... the success will be over the top. Honestly, I would love the recipes.

 

So the invitation for you guys to come up and see us is always open. Just don’t wait for summer though, there is always something to do all seasons.

Take care and thanks again,

 

Tom and Sharon

Just a little note to say thank you very much.

Have a Very Merry Christmas from the Capilongo.
