We strongly believe in supporting local farms and food purveyors. Classic Culinaire uses only the freshest ingredients and sources them locally whenever possible. Local, Northern California food is the cornerstone of the San Francisco Bay Area and Sonoma / Napa Wine Country culinary heritage, and we bring that heritage to you.
Executive & Personal Chef, Chad Carlstedt, has maintained an unparalleled passion for cooking and fine food since he was a child. Having grown up in California's wine country, the famed hot bed for culinary masterpieces, it was no surprise that Chad would choose the culinary arts as his career path.
After graduating from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, he gained valuable hands on experience in a wide variety of environments. It was clear early on that his passion extended beyond just cooking, but to delivering world-class service to his customers as well. Bringing his passion to life, his company, Classic Culinaire, was founded in 2007 and continues to grow each year.
As the leader of the Classic Culinaire team, Chef Chad ensures our clients enjoy the service, the experience and the amazing food that Classic Culinaire has become known for.
Chef Chad and his assistant Marcus were awesome…The food was outstanding and the service was amazing.
OMG! Chad and his staff have been providing AMAZING catering services for me for 9 years!
What can I say, Chad and his team are amazing! They made our wedding day unforgettable. We knew that everyone always remembers the food at weddings and sure enough they did!
We had the privilege of hiring Chad to do a dinner for us at Sonoma Hacienda while we stayed in wine country. The overall experience was fantastic and the food, excellent!
Wow, Wow, Wow. Absolutely incredible. Congrats to Chad and his team. We were a group of 16 and had him cook for us for 3 nights and each night was better than the other.
I have done several events with private chefs and Chad and his team are by far the best. He is courteous, responsive, flexible, and fun! His food is exquisite and among the best I have ever tasted.
