“Capitola Garden Feast is a unique and intimate experience to share with friends or a work team! Martin and his team are wonderful hosts, great teachers, and experienced chefs! Our work team enjoyed making dinner together and provided the perfect opportunity to bond outside of work. Highly Recommend.”

“Had the pleasure of dining in Chef Martin’s lovely backyard in a small group setting. Absolutely enjoyed the 7 course brunch along with the alcohol pairing. Everything was delicious and we enjoyed the fact that Martin took the time to explain every dish and drink and was very accommodating to any allergies or preferences (I had none, but still nice to have that option). Highly recommend him for any events. Would dine again given the chance.”
Stephanie H.
“This was an amazing experience. It was fun, educational, and a great team-building experience. Single-handedly one of the coolest events I have ever participated in with a company.”
