Our Mission

Not So Simple Fare by Paulie's Catering.  Regular meals with special treatment.  Your everyday fare shouldn't be ordinary.  We use the basics to deliver the extraordinary.

Company Profile

Paul Fordiani, Chef and Owner, brings international and regional experience to every day cooking.  His style reflects his diverse background, and expertly blends South Asian, American, and Italian cuisines into surprising, satisfying, "not so simple" fare. Chef Paulie loves curries, and has conducted cooking classes for curry afficionados.

Chef Paulie was brought up in a Northern Italian family.  He apprenticed under Executive Chef Leo Robledo (Pier 5, Admiral Fell) of Baltimore and alongside Executive Chef David Black (American University). His own everyday cooking includes many aspects of Italian cuisine.  More than a few of his favorites in the Grand Buffet are Italian regional specialties.

Steve Willett, Sous Chef and Catering Manager, brings a New England sensibility to classic dining, from Beef Stroganoff and Chicken Almondine (with haricots vert, of course) to sides, salads, clambakes and everything else.

Jim Monks, Beverage Consultant, was the head bartender at the Watergate Hotel for over a decade. Jim lends his expertise to matching our menus to the right ale, wine, or cocktail to bring out the best in both. Jim also makes some mean smoked ribs!
