Roadside Chive is a full service catering and event planning company, located in the historic American Silk Mills Inc. facility and warehouse on Madison Road in Orange, Virginia.

During WWII, American Silk Mills became the nation’s largest producer of spun raw Chinese silk for parachutes - helping the town of Orange survive the Great Depression. The American Silk Mill facility continues to bring success to the small town of Orange. 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.

While owned by Currey Fountain (the former Co-Founder/Owner and Executive Chef of beggars banquet catering) Roadside Chive flourishes because of the efforts of her team of hard working culinary and service professionals. If you’re familiar with the beggars banquet catering staff, then you’ll recognize quite a few of the “Roadie” faces - including that of lead Event Planner and all around positive energy, Taylor Gillan.

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! Read less

Currey and the whole team at Roadside were an absolute dream to work with and our food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented! My husband and I cared a lot about having high-quality food that wasn't your typical bland wedding food. We had tastings with two other vendors and the quality of the food along with the professionalism and organization at Roadside Chive were unparalleled. Currey was extremely responsive to questions and concerns, and helped us make a super flavorful custom menu based on our feedback. She is also incredibly knowledgeable about wedding planning in general and was an awesome resource for our timeline and planning in general. We got so many compliments from our guests and absolutely loved our menu. Furthermore, all of the service staff was speedy, professional, and on top of their game. I have never had catering that even comes close to Roadside Chive. I would HIGHLY recommend Roadside Chive.

We used Roadside Chive as our catering team for our wedding last weekend, and we could not have been more pleased. From start to finish, Currey was amazing. She was incredibly responsive to questions about everything from A to Z and the food was delicious. On the day of, her team provided a great experience for us. She was also very respectful of our budget and worked with us to create a menu that fit within what we were able to spend. I highly recommend RSC to anyone getting married in this area.

Road Side Chive under the leadership of Currey was the perfect team to provide delicious, visually appealing food and well-trained professional staff. I greatly appreciated the flexibility that Road Side Chive gave me when it came to guest numbers and switching up drink decisions based on the weather. My husband and I were very lucky to have Road Side Chive on our team. Thank you very much being so warm and helpful! ??

Road Side Chive and Currey did the most wonderful food for our reception. We are vegetarian and Currey came up with a delicious all-vegetarian menu that left our carnivorous guests raving. RSC were very responsive and accommodated all of our requests, changes and last-minute change in guest numbers. We went for a "family-style" service which looked great and people loved. The food looked and tasted fantastic. The service was amazing and they made sure that some food was kept aside for us. The homey yet elegant food really matched the feel of our day. RSC came highly recommended by our venue (The Inn at Westwood Farm) and we were very glad we went with them.

The best wedding decision I made was booking Currey and the team at Roadside Chive. From the beginning, she respected our budget, offered plenty of helpful suggestions, and took the reins when I asked her to. I mentioned that a few of our guests were dairy- and gluten-free, and she crafted our entire menu to fit what they could eat. The food was outstanding, and she was completely open to changes throughout the process as well as very reachable by phone and email. Currey also went above and beyond by offering suggestions for local transportation & lodging options (we are from out of town). I was blown away by her professionalism & customer service. Our day-of coordinator, Taylor, was the second best decision I made! She was invaluable the month prior to the wedding, and was experienced in weddings at our venue which was a big deal for me. She offered great suggestions and was very knowledgeable. I felt totally relaxed because I knew everything was handled. On the big day, guests kept complimenting the catering staff and how friendly they were. Their customer service and professionalism is bar none, and they'll work with any budget. It's a no brainer! Thank you Roadside Chive!

I am so, so happy that we decided to have Currey and Roadside Chive cater our wedding. I can't think of a single criticism or area in which she and her awesome team could have done better... they were that good. We chose Roadside Chive because we loved the idea of creating our own menu from scratch, and their prices are competitive compared to some other major Charlottesville caterers. We wanted a family-style meal and we wanted to provide our own alcohol, and Currey was more than happy to accommodate. She worked with me for months to create a perfect menu, patiently and promptly responding to emails, and always offering enthusiasm and great advice. Currey's ability to produce incredible food on a large scale is really amazing. We served chimichurri steak, a teriyaki salmon with two sauces, mac and cheese, potatoes, and roasted vegetables, and every dish was fresh and flavorful. Currey also did so many little things to make our day wonderful: creating signature cocktails that guests raved about, packing a huge "to go" box of leftovers for us, ensuring that bride/groom and toasters were served first, and taking so many small tasks off our plate during the busy weeks before the wedding. Our guests also raved about the friendliness of the catering staff and bartenders. Currey is well-acquainted with tons of other wedding professionals in Charlottesville, which makes coordination among your vendors a breeze. Long story short, I would recommend Roadside Chive (and their rentals partner, Beggars Banquet) wholeheartedly. They are fun, creative, professional, responsive, a great value, and will make your wedding awesome.

There will be a lot of superlatives in this review that may appear as exaggerations -- I assure you, they are not. The Roadside Chive team was a magical gem that makes me wish I was throwing a wedding party every weekend.

Working with Currey was really fun! Her energy is totally contagious! Everything was easy with her and her team, even the things that are rarely easy -- like dealing with my highly demanding Russian event-planner mother. Currey expertly walked the line of doing things exactly the way my groom and I wanted while also leaving my mom entirely pleased and glowing.

Apart from nice rates, what originally sold us on Roadside Chive is their offer to take care of a ton of things that I appreciated not having to even approach, like liquor licenses and such. As a clueless bride, I was grateful for Currey's quick but solid rough plan and for her & her staff's clever and kind money-saving tips and flexibility in tweaking it over time. They agreed to whip up some special-request Russian dishes, including a pretty weird family recipe of a very obscure dish. At the tasting, I nearly teared up: it tasted exactly like my mom's!

On wedding day, our drinks, appetizers and buffet dinner were all fresh, beautiful and tasty. It's probably a millionth time I've said this over recent weeks, but holy cow, I could eat Roadside Chive's hot-smoked salmon every day for the rest of my life. The service was highly professional and seamless. They even thoughtfully brought appetizers for my groom and me during our post-ceremony photo shoot AND later packed away full plates of dinner for a post-wedding meal, in case we didn't get to eat enough as many couples do. But I'm proud to say I was one of the first people in line for the dinner buffet -- have I mentioned the insane hot-smoked salmon? :) The team also packaged up all the leftovers for a crazy-convenient day-after-the-wedding dinner that made my family feel like the celebration wasn't over.
