When All of It Matters —

Feast & Gather is Nevada County's beyond farm to table catering and full service events provider. 

We believe that as culinary professionals, we not only have the responsibility of providing exceptional quality & service, but also to provide education about the effects our choices have on our bodies and the planet.

We do that by using produce, meats, and dairy that have been grown and raised by our local/regional farms and ranches whenever possible. To that end, we design each menu around what is seasonally available from local, organic, & grass fed, free range farmers. 

Shanan Manuel, Owner/Chef


Shanan's passion for food began as a child picking sweet peas from the vine and eating straight from the garden for after school snacks. Shanan spent 11 years working for Tutti Frutti Farms in Santa Barbara developing her connection from soil to plate. In 2005 she designed a small specialty market and gourmet foods to go store for the farm. 

Shanan is the chef behind Nevada City's Farm to Table Dinner where 150 diners enjoy a farm sourced 6 course meal at one long table downtown Nevada City. Shanan's passion for food shines through with each ingredient carefully chosen, all from scratch and that ever present care that she embodies in the kitchen.
