Founded in 1980 by namesake and visionary Paula LeDuc, the company has evolved from startup-style beginnings to a highly successful full-service operation with a talented team of chefs, bartenders, service staff, designers, salespeople, event managers, and executive leaders. Throughout Paula LeDuc Fine Catering’s 36-year history, the company has stayed true to its mission: “Create, celebrate and experience the extraordinary.”
Drawing inspiration from Michelin-starred restaurants, Top Chefs, food trucks, and farmers markets, the Paula LeDuc Fine Catering culinary team – led by executive chef Daniel Capra, chef de cuisine Drew Boczon, and pastry chef Marilyne Mitani – produces fare that’s far beyond the typical perception of “catered food.” The team is driven by an unwavering commitment to create a culinary experience on par with the standards of a four-star restaurant.
Working closely with the culinary team, Paula LeDuc Fine Catering’s beverage director Jay Crabb and his team are fully focused on delivering the best possible beverage experience. From designing a hand-chipped-to-order ice bar and sourcing boutique whiskies from local distillers, to discovering new artisanal beers and learning how to make wine, the team not only understands the art and craft of beverage, but they’re passionate about every aspect.
A dedicated in-house Innovation Team ensures that the company is ahead of trends, concocting unique concepts, dreaming up new designs, and constantly seeking new sources of inspiration to inform their ideas.
