Chef Tim Ma had been delighting guests for many years as they joined him at his restaurants in Virginia for an intimate "Tasting Table" experience.  It began as an experiment for launching new techniques and new dishes for the front dining room, but took a path of its own to become a platform for telling the stories behind a dish or the inspiration for the use of an ingredient.  

At the end of the series, it just became a dinner party that happened to center around the stories of food and dishes that were probably only cooked for the first time, and probably the last time as well, but uniquely for this group of six people.  The experience was also named one of Travel & Leisure Magazine's "Very Best Chef's Tables in America".  He is now looking to continue that experience outside of his restaurants, into your home.

Each Gather + Feast experience has a theme. Choose the best theme and date for you and your guests, and we will email a menu and details for how to coordinate the event.

What we will provide:

  • Minimum 4-course meal to be cooked in your kitchen
  • A minimum of two chefs and one server
  • Cookware, dishware, silverware for the entire meal
  • Place settings on a host-decorated table
  • Clean-up and breakdown of your kitchen

What you will provide:

  • Working kitchen to include a minimum of 4 cooktops, one oven, counter space for prep and plating, and at least two electrical outlets 120V/15A (residential standard)
  • Table that can seat the number of guests comfortably, with chairs
  • Table decorations, table cloths, glassware
  • Table set with decorations, table cloths, and glassware
  • Wine/Beer/Beverage, if desired
