Elaine Bell Catering to Prepare Sponsor Dinner



Locally grown organic foods are the ingredients that have shaped Elaine’s imaginative menus since the company’s beginning in 1982. Back then, Elaine’s young company contacted growers she knew throughout the wine country to procure neighborhood breads, produce, cheeses, poultry, meats and fish…..this was the natural foundation of her culinary philosophy. Today, she still works with local farms, including The Patch, Ocean Song and Oak Hill Farms, to continue her 29-year tradition of creating extraordinary culinary events, from the bounty of our community, sustaining her innovative style.

Elaine Bell Catering is proud of its long-standing reputation as one of the premier catering companies in the Greater Bay Area and the California Wine Country.
