Roadside Chive is a full service catering and event planning company, located in the historic American Silk Mills Inc. facility and warehouse on North Madison Road in Orange, Virginia. The 6 acre site of warehouse style brick buildings is now home to an eclectic mix of businesses that are independently owned by local residents and entrepreneurs with their eyes to the future.
The feel of the Roadside Chive kitchen and office is a fun mix of urban, industrial, modern, rustic and small-town-quaint. It’s a nice place to dream and create. We service all of the Central Virginia area, including Orange, Charlottesville, Scottsville, Madison, Culpeper, Greene, Sperryville, Fredericksburg and beyond.
While owned by Currey Fountain, Roadside Chive flourishes because of the efforts of her team of hard working culinary and service professionals.
Our heart and soul has always been with the food we create and the personal attention we provide. We focus on the tiny particulars that make your event intimate and special - and the major logistics that make your event successful and worry free. From delivered boxed lunches and business meals to beautifully choreographed weddings and galas, we provide quality services at the most reasonable cost with a high attention to detail. Our staff is professional, honest and fun.
Please allow our sample menus to serve as an inspiration. We will be happy to create a custom menu and event plan for your specific occasion.
As always, we look forward to your business and to your friendship!

Not enough words to describe how fantastic it was to work with this team!
Our venue provided us with a lengthy list of recommended vendors, and my husband and I reached out to several caterers that had excellent ratings. We were never really worried about finding a caterer that would provide us with good food, but Roadside Chive blew us away at every possible moment. From our first phone call, we knew they would be amazing. We explained on that call that I (the bride) and a couple other guests have gluten allergies and that I wanted to be able to eat everything. We noted though that my husbands' nephews would be invited and that they are at an age where they only eat bread. Currey immediately suggested a gluten free zucchini bread with honey butter. Yaaaaaas, because you know what, us gluten free gals love carbs too! Roadside worked closely with us to think through all our options while being mindful of what would keep us within our budget (including the cost of a day of coordinator and rentals!) and also what would taste the freshest while on the buffet. Our guests LOVED the food (including a celiac friend who raved to us that, "This was NOT wedding food, this was fine dining!!"). Our venue required us to have a day of coordinator and although we were initially nervous about the expense, it was by far the best decision ever (we've since recommended having a day of coordinator to all of our friends getting married). Danielle was our day of coordinator and she was simply amazing. She was incredibly organized, upbeat, and excited about our plans every time we met. Planning a wedding is no easy feat, and Danielle kept us stress-free, relaxed, and well-fed (she had appetizers and drinks prepared for us in the bridal suite right after the ceremony). Danielle and her team made sure everything was set up for the day--including moving plants from our venue's nursery to the ceremony and reception spaces, setting up our table seating cards, and making everything look so amazing. We cannot thank Danielle and Currey enough for all they did to make our day special!Sent on 03/11/2019

I would do it all over again!!
Currey and staff were a dream to work with from the moment I contacted her in August to our wedding in November. We were planning a wedding in a city where none of us lived on a friend's farm. Currey held our hand every step of the way. She and her staff were fun to work with and the tasting was one of most fun things we did. We had a cold November day (tents were heated) and there was no grumbling - everyone was so professional. The manager on site (Anna ?) just about predicted my every need. The food was unbelievable. People are still talking about the pumpkin bread!! I would do it all over again!! They partner with Gibson Rentals. Mike and his team were also fantastic.Sent on 01/04/2019

We could not love Roadside Chive more.
Currey, Danielle, and their team are the most incredible caterers I've ever worked with. I used to plan wedding industry events in a prior job, so I knew right away that I wanted to talk to Roadside Chive about our wedding catering. My partner and I had a somewhat unique event in mind: a wedding brunch instead of dinner. Currey was completely on board from the get-go. We wanted for our vegan friends and family to be able to have a full brunch, but we didn't want our meat-and-dairy-loving parents to care that some of the food they were eating was vegan! Currey completely understood where we were coming from and she created an incredible menu: chicken and waffle skewers, baked french toast with praline crunch and berry compote (vegan), plus lots of sides (bacon, sausage, a delicious seasonal salad, breakfast potatoes). Danielle, our event coordinator, is the most incredible person and frankly, I miss emailing her every week. When our event rental company sent the wrong color linens over the day before our event, Danielle was the one who jumped into the back of their truck in the cold rain to retrieve the right color tablecloths. We didn't have a wedding planner, but between Danielle, her team, and our photographer, everything went perfectly. The whole crew who came out on our wedding day were so kind, helpful, and efficient. Our wedding was in our back yard on a wet, wet morning, and they were so respectful of our space! Thinking back on our experience with Roadside Chive brings tears to my eyes. They really made our wedding celebration special and we can't thank them enough.Sent on 03/01/2019
