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 Read less

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!

Chef Charlie made the catering portion of our wedding a breeze. We gave him little information about what we wanted and he was able to transform this into a menu that wowed me, my wife and our wedding guests. We anticipated the catering to be one of the more difficult tasks for us, but Chef Charlie handled everything. This was a major stress reliever for my wife and I. We will definitely use and recommend Chef Charlie for any future occasion!

We couldn't have found a better caterer. Chef Charlie and his team are amazing. People are still raving about the food, but equally how personable, knowledgeable, and great all his staff were that served the food to our wedding guests. The prices are fantastic, and Chef Charlie was always responsive when we had questions throughout the process. Will only use Chef Charlie for future events!

Chef Charlie was such a pleasure to work with and was always available for any questions we had leading up to our wedding. We especially appreciated his flexibility with our schedule as we live in Boston but that was never a factor.
The food was beyond excellent and Charlie tailored the desert options to reflect elements of us (the mini mango cakes we're pretty incredible).
He has an adorable tasting room in Atascadero where he pulled out all the stops for us. It was such a great experience overall. His team is great, Charlie is super professional and the food is fantastic.
We'd highly recommend Chef Charlie to anyone looking for a catering service in the Central Coast.

Ummmmm... wow!!!! Chef Charlie catered our wedding and honestly it was PERFECT! Two weeks later and my husband and I are still getting emails and texts raving about the food. Chef Charlie was so great to work with, he truly tailors his menu in such an artistic way and makes it a reflection of you. He did our cocktail hour with cheese and charcuterie and an oyster station. He also supplied the bartenders. For dinner we went family style and the plating was beautiful. The food.. oh my that food, DELICIOUS! The service was great and his staff never missed a beat. I just wish he had a restaurant so I could eat his food more often. If you are a foodie and want the food at your wedding to be memorable, then you MUST have Chef Charlie cater it.

"Chef Charlie is a legend" to quote one of our wedding guests. That is not hyperbole. The man is truly legendary. His food is akin to an out of body experience. His charm and humor are incomparable. We have never met someone more passionate about his job and food than this man. He has become a part of the family and we are glad to have had him at our special day.

If you want the most amazing food you will ever have at a wedding, and quite frankly the most amazing meal period, you need to stop your search for a caterer here and contact Chef Charlie today. I cannot even begin to thank Chef Charlie enough for the incredible meal and service he provided for our wedding. His staff is amazing and we received endless comments from our guests about the quality of the meal. My husband still talks about the sambuca shrimp he tasted months back before our wedding date and probably (ok hopefully, haha) second to the actual marriage, this was what he was most excited about.

When I first contacted Charlie, I was deflated after many failed attempts to receive responses from other catering vendors in the area. He spoke to me for about 45 minutes and went over several details and in the end even mentioned that if we did not use him, we were welcome to contact him with questions or advice. This is not someone who pushes through a million events a year, this is someone who genuinely and passionately cares about what he does and the service he provides. He went out of his way to educate and inform us of several options.

Chef Charlie's personalized service and amazing talent for great food made our wedding day truly amazing. Any bride and groom would be beyond pleased with his service.
