About Catering by Chef Charlie

Catering By Chef Charlie

Chef Charles D. Paladin Wayne started the Catering company on August 31st 2005. With 35 years in the restaurant/hospitality business, over a hundred Wine Dinners, and quite a few Weddings in the mix, it was as good a time as ever to branch out on my own. In the past three years of business we have serviced 60+ weddings and 160 other events. Our marketing has been strictly word of mouth, and our wine community has kept us very busy. Our success rate to date has been 100% with our clients as well as the venues we have worked in. We are staffed with a proffessional, hard working, detail oriented group of people who thoroughly enjoy our mission. We are capable of handling the small(50) parties to large (350+). My experience as a Chef , traveling the world and working with 15+ cuisines as well as our diverse american food styles has given us the flexibility to offer a pleathora of styles and choices. As a winery Chef for the past 13 years my understanding of food and wine pairing has added another dimension to the business. Paso Robles is a popular and large wine community of over 180 wineries, so this has been a natural draw for wonderfull weddings and events. I hope you’ll look us up when considering your vendors.


Sincerely,
Chef Charles D. Paladin Wayne

    Chef Charlie provided all the catering for our wedding reception. Starting from his tasting menu to the hectic big day, everything was delicious, spot-on and relatively local for our tastes. We asked for a raw bar, cocktail eats, various specialty main dishes, and homemade pie deserts, and he delivered on everything in a timely manner. Optimistic and professional, we barely had a chance to thank him for truly giving us a memorable culinary experience for our big day

    Chef Charlie was a godsend! From the first time we met he was attentive, kind and energetic. He didn't even bat an eye when I said I was gluten free, had a soy allergy and when we gave him a list of other 'no-no' foods. He welcomed the 'challenge' by saying it was no issue at all and assuring us that he was the man for the job (he really was, he even made us our gluten free 2 tiered cake AND GF breadsticks!!). Not only did he turn our vision for healthy, organic and local food come to life but he was able to pair the wines we were providing with the food he was creating- absolutely incredible. To make the experience even better he used his contacts for our linen rentals and even when there was a last minute mixup (all on my part!) when others may have gotten upset or said fixing it wasn't possible- he calmed ME down by helping me and reaching out to all of his contacts to make sure we had everything we needed and without a hitch. He went above an beyond for us and he truly is a HUGE part of why our wedding was as special, beautiful and fun as we had dreamed. The food was delicious and his service staff were incredible. Our guests were so impressed by the family style food that WE RAN OUT (each table asked for 2nds, 3rds and 4ths!!)! If that isn't a testament to what an incredible chef he is, I don't know what is! Everyone loved his speech and passion for the food and menu he created for us- it meant a lot to my husband and I. I can't say enough amazing things about Chef Charlie. I HIGHLY recommend him for all catering needs, he will NOT disappoint. Thank you again Chef Charlie, you were a pleasure to work with! We will definitely be contacting you in the future for any catering needs we may have!!

    Chef Charlie did an AMAZING job catering our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception! All our guests LOVED the food and the whole experience! We wanted to do a more laid back setting with food stations and Chef Charlie worked up the most incredible menu with tacos, stromboli, salads & more! It was truly an EPIC menu and experience. I would highly recommend Chef Charlie for any event!
