We recently hosted a concert and party celebrating my 60th birthday, and hired Feast & Gather for our catering. Shanan made a visit to our place, about a half-hour out of town in advance of the event. We appreciated the opportunity to meet with her and show her our set-up.

We communicated with her a couple of times prior to the party, and she was always immediately responsive, flexible and courteous. On the day of the event, she arrived at the time we had agreed upon. The concert was still happening, so she was on her own to set-up the food without additional guidance.

The presentation of the food was glorious, and the enjoyment of it was even better. Everyone loved the quality and beauty, and especially the delicious eating experience. The quantities were abundantly perfect too. Shanan was also timely in returning to pick up all her serving dishes.

From start to finish, Shanan was both pleasant and professional, and her food creations added a conspicuous dimension of elegance to a most memorable event. We highly recommend Feast and Gather Catering to anyone.

Shanan Manuel is a rockstar, and I am so deeply grateful for her talent, presence, skill, and amazing culinary magic that she brought to my yoga retreat. My students are STILL talking about it (nine months later)! She set the bar high for my retreats to eternity. I’m grateful for her being so great in the pre-event communications, the on-site set up/sensitivity/schedule, and making phenomenally mouth-watering meals. I loved the menu, the sourcing, and her ideas for making everything extra special. Not to mention the plating was lovely. I am so grateful for this partnership; I look forward to doing it again.

In addition to being very easy to plan and communicate with, Shanan is an extraordinary provider of beauty and nourishment.
The food she prepared made our eyes delight, our jaws drop, and our bodies sing with mmmmm.
She wove her way through our event with grace, clarity, and compassion. I look forward to working with her again.

Shanan, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for all that you did to make our wedding day a magical experience for us and our families. It was such a joy to work with you at every step in the process, and the end result was so wonderful, beautiful, & delicious! Thank you x 1,000,000!

Just spend a mere five minutes with Shanan and you can begin to feel yourself heal. She is that rare and precious soul who teaches others how to be their best selves by being it herself. Her food is just one of the many ways she brings joy, compassion, and healing to the world. Yes, it tastes deliciously sublime and yes, her creations are healthy for the body, but there is more to it than that. Words fall short and you simply must sample any one of her soup masterpieces in order to feel the healing begin.

Shanan makes healthy eating simple, fun and tasty! She has a true gift with food. After years of working with a farm, she is able to bring the flavors of the earth to her dishes in a really delicious way. Much like Shanan, her food is full of warmth and love. Each bite gets better and better.
You feel how truly nourished you are through her wonderful dishes.
