What we are all about

Lisa’s inspiration for the art of culinary and cuisine ignited while working in Chicago; however her ideas materialized and were set into motion when she settled in Venice, Florida. The trials of life carved a path to the experiences that ultimately influenced her ideas and dreams.  The premise of her vision was to capitalize on her natural ability to unite gourmet food and unique customer service; with ‘exceptional’ being the driver of both creativity and quality. Lisa’s mission promotes the opportunity for individuals who host their parties to enjoy the time with their guests by minimizing disruptions, stresses and distractions associated with the planning/hosting an event.  Inspired by the spirit and advice of her late father; Lisa decided to, “Jump, believe, and Trust.”  Hosted Gourmet transformed from a dream to a reality.
