Elaine Bell Catering Company

It’s not just about showing up with food — and at Elaine Bell Catering, we know that. A successful event combines a stylish setting and gorgeous location with sumptuous dishes and well chosen wines and spirits. The staff here knows our food (And well we should; most of us are trained chefs) but more than that, we understand the subtler points of elegance, style, and presentation. We know that when you’re planning an important event, it is absolutely essential that you know, trust, and respect the people you hire to help you. So take a minute to get to know us and then give us a call for more information — maybe even chat with Yong a bit about La Bohème!


“I have assembled this remarkable group of personalities to keep Elaine Bell Catering Company on the cutting edge of wine country events. We all love what we do! Please come and let us make your visions come true.”
