When a shared passion for food brought Jerry and Chris Baker together, it sparked a common desire to embark on a journey in the culinary world.

Inspired by meals they shared in some of the country’s best restaurants, they set out to begin a catering company of their own -- one that reflected their pride and passion for catering while interpreting the dishes they had personally enjoyed for a larger audience. Their company, The Food Matters, was born under a single belief that “the food matters, always."

Embracing the challenging aspects of catering, The Food Matters is dedicated to providing the highest quality food and service to its clients. We combine that dedication with a passion for the environment. We source local, sustainable, and organic food whenever possible for events.

With a unique ability to customize and design inspired menus, keen attention to detail, skilled production, and impeccable taste, The Food Matters offers an unmatched level of quality, professionalism, and ingenuity. We involve our clients at every point to create memorable events heightened by great food.

With over 15 years of experience catering events big and small, you can count on us to get it right. Forty guests for an elegant dinner party? We can do that. Three-thousand guests for a corporate outing? We can do that. Two-hundred guests or more for a wedding at the perfect venue? We can do that. Experience Matters.

The Food Matters is a preferred caterer of Paramount Studios, as well as Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate, SmashBox Studios, Saddlerock Ranch, SmogShoppe, Huntington Library, Villa Sevillano, Sunstone and many other top southern and Central California venues
