Vendor Spotlight: Organic Chef Catering

For couples out there wishing to provide sustainable, organic food at your wedding, consider Organic Chef Catering. Eden Benavides, Director of Events, tells us all about OCC: “Through a program of environmental accountability, we've created a system that incorporates high quality organic cuisine, fine table service, sustainable transportation and our goal of producing zero waste.”

Eden also tells us about their team of highly trained and experienced event professionals. Each season, they bring together new talent and are supported by a team of professionals and alumni from the Culinary Institute of America and Cornell University of Hospitality. They’re highly influenced by local organic farmers, Bay Area winemakers, creative chefs and the fine arts. “It’s truly a victory for everyone when we deliver an event with a strong farm-to-table connection,” she explains.

As far as weddings go, Eden tells us they adore catering weddings because it gives them the opportunity to create menus that reflect the abundance of organic products. “Starting with a foundation of California cuisine, we infuse the cultural and flavor diversity to complement a couple’s unique wedding.”

Eden stresses that their service is geared towards environmentally conscious couples with a taste for local organic California cuisine. Their signature amenities include lead-free glassware by Riedel, dinnerware by Rosenthal, elegant linens and sustainable delivery powered by locally sourced bio diesel. And on behalf of their clients, they donate a portion of event sales to the Arbor Day Foundation. Organic Chef Catering could just be the ideal vendor to cater your quintessential Northern California wedding.
