Roadside Chive in Charlottesville

Roadside Chive is a full service catering and event planning company, located in the historic American Silk Mills Inc. facility and warehouse on Madison Road in Orange, Virginia.

During WWII, American Silk Mills became the nation’s largest producer of spun raw Chinese silk for parachutes - helping the town of Orange survive the Great Depression. The American Silk Mill facility continues to bring success to the small town of Orange. The 6 acre site of warehouse style brick buildings is now home to an eclectic mix of businesses that are independently owned by local residents and entrepreneurs with their eyes to the future.

The feel of the Roadside Chive kitchen and office is a fun mix of urban, industrial, modern, rustic and small-town-quaint. It’s a nice place to dream and create.

While owned by Currey Fountain (the former Co-Founder/Owner and Executive Chef of beggars banquet catering) Roadside Chive flourishes because of the efforts of her team of hard working culinary and service professionals. If you’re familiar with the beggars banquet catering staff, then you’ll recognize quite a few of the “Roadie” faces - including that of lead Event Planner and all around positive energy, Taylor Gillan.

Our heart and soul has always been with the food we create and the personal attention we provide. We focus on the tiny particulars that make your event intimate and special - and the major logistics that make your event successful and worry free. From delivered boxed lunches and business meals to beautifully choreographed weddings and galas, we provide quality services at the most reasonable cost with a high attention to detail. Our staff is professional, honest and fun.

Please allow our sample menus to serve as an inspiration. We will be happy to create a custom menu and event plan for your specific occasion.

Beggars Banquet was our caterer, but the woman behind Roadside Chive is the same wonderful person with whom we worked at Beggars Banquet and who did such a great job catering our wedding. We can't say enough good things about this group. Currey is so warm and personable, very accommodating of requests and budget restrictions, and the food she puts out is absolutely delicious. We got rave reviews on everything from every guest, including high praise for Currey's excellent staff, who were so Read More

We had a wonderful experience with Beggars Banquet. I grew up on a dairy and beef cattle farm and my uncle runs a produce company from the farm. We wanted to use our home-grown beef and produce on the wedding menu and Beggars Banquet (Currey in particular) was SO accommodating and more than happy to incorporate this into the menu. Currey did a fantastic job with the layout of the reception and tables and the food was fantastic!

Currey was the most flexible vendor we dealt with. My mother didn't like our original idea of wanting food stations and Currey managed not only to create the menu we wanted, but also convinced my mother to go for the stations. And Currey helped us out to get the specialty international foods we wanted. She knew how to get us what we as the couple wanted, while appeasing my mother. She is such a sweetheart and has so much experience - you can't go wrong with Beggars Banquet. Plus, having all the Read More

The food was amazing and beautiful. They provided seasonal items, and really worked with us to suggest options and create the menu we wanted and could afford. They were very professional and fun, and helped make our day a success!

We loved working with the Beggars Banquet team. We had a lot of special diets at our wedding, vegans, vegetarians, pregnant women, picky eaters, and they easily accommodated everything. I loved having the food served "family style" as well. We have gotten so many compliments on the food that was served. And we got to keep the leftovers!
