Where are you located & where do you cater?

Our newly-built catering kitchen is at 86 Gibson Road, Suite 4 in Templeton. We are 15 minutes north of San Luis Obispo and and just minutes to Paso Robles wine country on California’s Central Coast. We cater anywhere from Santa Maria, Santa Ynez and Arroyo Grande to Paso Robles, San Miguel, Templeton, Cambria & Big Sur.

Do you use frozen products or premade items?

No. We prepare all of our appetizers, dishes, and sauces from scratch for each event using fresh local ingredients whenever possible.

Are you offering tastings currently?

Due to the impact Covid had on our business, we converted our tasting room into a production space. Using this space for our ToGo dinners has sustained our business, therefore we will not be offering tastings for much of 2022. If you are a booked client, please feel free to email about options that may work for you such as a togo tasting or backdoor tasting. 

Do you cook your food onsite?

Yes. We prep our food at our commercial kitchen but we always cook our food at the event venue. We “build” a portable kitchen at venues without proper catering kitchens. Our food is served fresh and never transported ready-to-serve in hot boxes.

Why do you call your catering company “boutique?”

We are a husband & wife team with an awesome crew of chefs, cooks & servers. We limit the number of events we cater each week. We ‘ll never do more than 2 events in a day so that we can give each client the attention they deserve.

What is the average price for your catering services for a wedding?

For weddings with staffing, tax & our offsite catering production fee built in, most wedding clients spend between $70 and $100 per person. The service style, menu and venue are all factors in determining pricing. However, we work with many budgets for the variety of events we cater. Other events, such as wine club parties, corporate catering, etc. as generally priced somewhat lower.

What is your server to guest ratio?

Buffet: 1 to 17-20
Family-style 1 to 13-18
Plated: 1 to 12-15
This does not include chefs, cooks, bussers, or bartenders.

What’s included in your services?

Our staff arrives 2 - 2.5 hours before the ceremony to set linens, table settings and prepare for your event. Besides full service of the food & non-alcoholic beverages at events,, we include a non-alcoholic drink station of lemonade and iced tea, tray-passed and stationary appetizers, server-manned dinner service, cake cutting, coffee service, cleanup and basic organization of rentals

What’s not included?

We sometimes offer table & chair setup for an additional fee. We work with local bartending companies to clear bar glassware. However, we charge additional fees for clients who use bartenders who do not particpate in racking of glassware.

Do you provide bartending services?

No, we do not offer these services. We are happy to recommend local bartending companies.

Do you offer cake cutting, champagne pour, coffee service, etc.?

Yes, we include all the above as a complimentary service at every wedding.

Can you recommend other vendors?

Absolutely. We’ve been catering on the Central Coast for 14 years and have been lucky enough to work with & build relationships with amazing vendors. We’re happy to recommend awesome venues, coordinators, DJs, florists, photographers, rental companies, and any other vendor you may need. We are proud to be a part The Wedding Standard Community and Central Coast Wedding Professionals.
