The Catering Outfit

Charlottesville, VA

Boutique Culinary Design for Fine Foodie Tastes

The Catering Outfit was founded on Walter Slawski’s deep passion for food and a desire to curate creative, classic experiences. Meet with your personal catering coordinator. Sit down and design a custom menu from scratch. Be bold and discover food you never knew you loved.
Seasonal inspirations come together to produce memorable events. Host a backyard BBQ with an onsite smoker, wood grill and spit roaster. Hand select upscale Southern dishes, Moroccan banquets or family-style Italian feasts. Design playful around-the-world-themed interactive food stations. Arrange a specialty cocktail bar alongside an elaborate raw bar. Members of Slow Food USA, The Catering Outfit raises the wedding menu bar with regionally and locally sourced ingredients and sustainable products.
The full-service locally owned catering company provides multiple menu planning sessions, food, beverage, bar service, staffing, rentals and comprehensive day-of wedding coordinating services. Chefs practice menu iterations until they align to a tee with your vision. This industry leader gives you the freedom and confidence to embrace and enjoy every moment as it happens.

Client Testimonials

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

"Our guests raved about the food! we got calls days later asking us who the catering was, that's how impressed everyone was. kelsey was awesome about getting back to us in a timely manner, and did a few iterations of our menu with us to get it just right. I highly recommend TCO!"

Meghan & Jon

"Walter, many thanks to you and your staff for a wonderful evening. can't tell you how many people commented on the food, presentation and service. we started strong with the watermelon salads and finished strong with our unique assortment of desserts. 
I think you killed it.  I am still receiving comments on the food all of which include "that was the best food I have ever had at any event". your staff is so impressive, lead first by your wife. I think we have set a new bar for events thanks to you."
