Paulding & Company, with its central San Francisco Bay Area location and flexible configuration, has a long history of creative collaboration with the film and television industries. Our kitchen was the "home" kitchen for Top Chef San Francisco, the inaugural season of the show. We were also featured in three scenes in Clint Eastwood's movie Hereafter. We have been part of several ad shoots—the most recent, for the culinary training program at the Art Institute. Terry Paulding taught all the animators for Ratatouille basic cooking skills, working, over the course of more than a year, with successive small groups of animators. They got to target the skills they needed to learn in order to properly motivate the characters—and the kitchen got included in a Disney/Pixar Cooking 101 video.
We welcome proposals and visits from scouts and interested organizations. Contact Terry Paulding with inquiries.
