Chef Paul Buchanan is a leader in the Slow Food movement.  His passion for locally sourced ingredients drove him to open Primal Alchemy Catering (PAC) after working for esteemed chefs Nancy Silverton (Campanile, La Brea Bakery), Pascal Olhats (Pascals), Joachim Spichel (Patina) among others.

As the first true Farm-to-Table catering company in Southern California, PAC has created seasonal, locally sourced cuisine to the TED Conference, Billabong, Urban Decay, Garnier, United States Green Building Council, Nature Conversancy and most recently Chef Paul was chosen to participate in a dinner hosted by Alice Waters for the Ecology Center.  Award-winning, Chef Paul has been instrumental in cultivating the urban agricultural movement, advocating for healthy food in schools and is dedicated to food education, sustainable efforts and, of course … cooking what nature provides.
