From Humble Beginning

Gourmet Bay Catering really showcases the Lowcountry’s love of food, small town character and integrity, and Southern uniqueness in each wedding catering experience we create in Charleston, South Carolina. We use locally sourced produce and high quality meats in all of our dishes. Chef Patrick Hickey has been honing his cooking skills for 18 years and brings that Wine Country freshness all the way from Sonoma, CA. Being a locally owned and operated wedding catering company, we pay attention to what’s important; the details that make your event special. Having an event in Charleston allows you to show some Southern hospitality while we take care of the rest.

Chef Patrick started cooking at a very early age. After living in the California wine country Patrick moved around to broaden his horizons in Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Spain, Cincinnati, and finally settling on Charleston, SC. The draw of the city was the proximity to the ocean, the warm weather, and the food and wine scene. Being a chef in a place that boast about great food was the perfect setting. After learning the tricks of pimento cheese and shrimp & grits this Cali Chef started to put his spin on down home cooking. Chef Patrick’s menus include the favorites like mini chicken and waffles, but also feature items like sweet chiles rellenos, pan-seared lamb bites, and gourmet deviled eggs. Our experience and track record in successful and memorable wedding catering allows us to stand apart from others in Charleston, South Carolina.

Gourmet Bay Catering truly is Lowcountry Cuisine with a California Wine Country Twist.
