I started Garnish and Gather in 2013 because I was hungry for change – I wanted to start something meaningful, a business that would bring joy to people, something that would forge a connection between good food and good taste. I’ve always loved finding the most special ingredients, the coolest in-season produce and creative recipes to make meals that were delicious with a story behind them too; and I wanted to do all that on a busy Tuesday night after work. I joined local Community Supported Agriculture programs (CSAs), I scoured the internet (pre-Pinterest!) for recipes, and when I could I went to the farmers market at 7am to be sure I got in line for spring asparagus - but sometimes these lofty goals weren’t always feasible – and so Garnish and Gather was born - out of my desire to do it all, but make it easy. Since then, a lot has changed, we’ve grown beyond just serving Atlanta, we’ve expanded from just 3 dinner kits a week to 9, we added specialty groceries and small batch artisanal goods, we now offer a la carte kits like bouche de noel cakes & lobster rolls! We are so much more than meal kits and I can’t wait to share G&G with you soon!
