This holiday season gather your clients and colleagues together for an evening of corporate camaraderie and festive feasting in a most unexpected placeÂ right IN the kitchen.
Gourmet Gatherings, San FranciscoÂs premiere gourmet entertaining company, can help you create an unforgettable, perfectly delicious company get-together that meets all your holiday objectives and is sure to become a much-anticipated tradition.
Recently nominated for the International Association of Culinary Professionals Award of Excellence and featured in Better Homes and Gardens and on the Food Network, Gourmet Gatherings stages hands-on cooking parties and corporate teambuilding events in private homes and rented professional kitchens all across the Bay Area.
At a Gourmet Gatherings cooking party you and your colleagues will gather around the stove while star chefs from acclaimed restaurants such as Postrio, Gary Danko and Hawthorne Lane introduce a delicious menu of recipes the group will prepare under their professional guidance. With good wine and festive music to set the mood, guests are divided into culinary teams to prepare the recipes from the eveningÂs list of gourmet dishes. Guests then savor the ÂfruitsÂ of their labor with Gourmet Gatherings on-hand to serve them.
ÂOur parties are perfect for corporate events all year long but they are particularly popular during the holidays because they emphasize camaraderie and team-work Â the real spirit of the season,Â says Gourmet Gatherings chef and co-owner Bibby Gignilliat. Co-owner Shannan Bishop adds, ÂDuring the holidays everyone craves good company, good times and of course great food. Nothing brings people together better the way cooking does.Â
This holiday season, Gourmet Gatherings is raising a glass to celebrate its fifth anniversary. To honor this wonderful milestone and our fabulous clients, weÂve created two mouthwatering party options for groups as small as 10 and up to 60. Hosts may choose from one of our irresistible four-course menus to throw a more traditional ÂGourmet Gatherings Dinner Party,Â or create a casual atmosphere with our new ÂHoliday Hors dÂoeuvresÂ party which features seasonal small plate dishes passed around hot-from-the-oven, cocktail-style. With each option, youÂll be treated to menus, which highlight the seasonÂs freshest ingredients. Dishes might include: Wild Mushroom Crostini with Stilton and Thyme, Arugula and Persimmon Salad with Spicy Pecans, Molasses-cured Pork Chop with Caramelized Apples on a bed of Creamy Polenta and finally, Cranberry Brioche Bread Pudding with Warm Caramel Sauce.

Remember, this year for an unforgettable celebration, the partyÂs IN the kitchen!
