MEET THE CHEF

John Carson

The man. The myth. The legend. John is a passionate, self-taught home cook based in Paso Robles, CA with a knack for creating delicious food. Whether he's watching every episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives or scouring the globe with Anthony Bourdain, John has an immense love for learning about food (and an even bigger love for eating it). He's the man behind the apron with a talent for creating simple, delicious dishes. John started J. Carson Catering as a hobby way back in 2010.  Now he's turned his passion into a career and caters all over California's Central Coast, serving everything from Spanish paella to American barbeque and everything in between.

Working with John was one the most streamlined events we have ever done, even with our 450+ guest list. He and his team were efficient, friendly and a fun addition to our party. Can’t stop at one bite of his über delicious paella that is beyond tasty.

We’ve loved having John cater our club pick up parties! Food is great, presentation is great and interaction is great. What more can you ask for?
