Welcome to Gesche's Gourmet!
My goal is to bring together my extensive experience, creative spirit, and love of community to create unique culinary experiences for each of my clients. Every event is different; therefore, no standard menus are offered. Instead, I will work with you to determine precisely the right options to represent the nature of your event.
I take my inspiration from the agricultural utopia that is California’s Central Valley. I feel enormously blessed to have grown up in this region. I love experimenting in the kitchen to develop unique recipes that excite the palate and inspire the heart. Whether you are celebrating your wedding day, a graduation, or a unique gathering sparked by your imagination, I believe the food should represent the spirit of the event and offer comfort and delight.
I spent many years traveling the world and learning to cook a wide variety of foods. I have spent time in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Alaska exploring the cuisines of those regions. I brought this experience with me when I returned home and started Gesche’s Gourmet, and it informs my creative process when developing new dishes, and when revisiting old favorites.
Unlike restaurants and catering companies that are only focused on providing food, I take a keen interest in every aspect of your event and am engaged in the whole planning process. It is my pleasure to act as a support and guide in navigating the various options and making sure that all the details are properly attended to. I understand the complexities of event planning and look forward to collaborating with you.
Gesche was a good listener and responsive to our needs. She and the catering staff were pleasant and professional and very efficient! Last but not least, the food and the presentation were terrific.
My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Gesche and her team! She was so easy to work with, had great creative ideas and really put our minds at ease. The food turned out delicious and our guests loved the individually plated appetizers. We would absolutely hire Gesche's Gourmet again!
Gesche is warm, friendly, and prepares a wonderful feast! On the day, there were complications (no electricity or running water), Gesche and her team were flexible and put in a lot of work to pull everything off! We know it was a lot of work for them and nothing that we are aware of, was compromised in delivering great food for the cocktail hour and dinner reception.
