Client Reviews

My fiancé and I have now been to 2 of (Gastronomy's) classes and have loved both! The classes are laid back, interactive, and fun - you also learn a lot! (Josh) is well spoken and you can tell he has a true passion for what he does. So far we have done sushi-making and wine tasting - can't wait to try some others!

Had the wonderful opportunity to meet and enjoy Chef Josh’s passion for wine and food science. Yes, it is a science! We gathered for a night at a friend’s home for a girlfriend’s bday and the intimate setting was just right for 8 ladies to listen, drink and participate in a gastronomic experience. Looking forward to hosting an event with my teenage boys to get them on the path of enjoying gastronomy!

The sushi making class was so fun! Josh was great and made us all feel like sushi chefs (we def weren’t, lol). Highly recommend!!

Gastronomy Live Events came to Great Heart’s After-school Program and provided the most engaging and informative program for our students. The students were able to see from a hands-on perspective where plant-based foods begin. They were introduced to many new items and were excited to learn about them and even a few taste items. The curriculum that The Gastronomy Live Events has developed is well thought out, intentional, and scientific all while being approachable for elementary age students. This is an area of study of which our students need and want more. We cannot wait to have Gastronomy Live Events present to our students again.
