HØSTE means to gather + harvest

A Danish word that comes from the Latin word hospitum, which means both host + guest.

We love bringing folks together around all things food. From cooking classes to experimental dinners, we create meaningful, impactful experiences centered around food by collaborating with like-minded, impassioned experts. 

We believe food can be both refined + accessible. Combining our roots in hospitality with empathy + storytelling, we design experiences fit to spark any guest's curiosity in food, engaging guests through five main impact points—the senses, culture, science, community + play.

Our company booked Hoste Productions’ Chocolate 101 class for our team of 35 people at the recommendation of a former colleague. This was my first time coordinating a culinary class for our team, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but Sophia exceeded all of my expectations! She was incredibly responsive, extremely helpful with coordinating logistics, even opting to come by our office for a walk-through. On the day of our event, Sophia’s team was super friendly and organized. Our staff had an amazing experience learning about types of chocolate, tempering chocolate, making truffles, and of course, eating them! Would highly recommend Sophia and Hoste to other companies looking for a fun happy hour activity for their team, and we’ll be booking Hoste again for future events!

Sophia is a pleasure to work with not only for her charming ease, but for her big picture creativity and thorough resourcefulness. She is highly connected in the best sense and understands people in a way that leads to exciting and meaningful collaborations. She’s a gem who is a master at turning lemons into lemonade and ensuring all t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted, too.

Sophia arranged one of the best holiday celebrations I have ever attended. She found an amazing, non-restaurant venue, near our office, that was perfect for the department holiday party. The space was arranged perfectly to permit relaxed mingling. While the atmosphere was relaxed and festive, the food, from sumptuous hors d’oeuvres to an amazing dinner and a delicious dessert, was the best part of the celebration. Sophia arranged all the food through a very talented young chef who was on-site throughout the evening, greeting and laughing with guests, explaining food choices and ingredients, and generally being charming and helpful. I can’t wait to see what Sophia might cook up for us in the coming years.

Our chocolate truffle-making class was awesome. It was the perfect way to start our team offsite and get everyone happy and creative! The HØSTE team was perfectly professional and it was a positively tailored, curated experience overall. I will definitely recommend to others and will try to find a reason to do one of the other classes
We had such an amazing experience working with Sophia and Chef Emily in catering for a week of executive working sessions. The food was catered around the dietary restrictions of the guests, beautifully plated and concocted with fresh, farm to table ingredients, and prepared using only the smallest of kitchens.  Our VP loved the food so much, he decided to hire the chef for his own personal use! If you’re looking for convenience without sacrificing quality than search no further; I will definitely be working with Sophia and her team again!
