Case Studies

Dumpling 101 Class + 4-Course Dinner

CLIENT: OpenTable

VENUE: Naked Kitchen, San Francisco

ROLE: Curation, Design + Production of Dumpling Class/Dinner

OpenTable's restaurant team joined us for a dynamic Dumpling 101 Class and four-course dinner, for their Q1 team-building off-site at Naked Kitchen in the Mission District. The objective was to take some time out of their bustling schedule to bond and connect over a fun and engaging class. The class happened to take place during the Lunar New Year, so we decorated the space to reflect the traditions of the holiday season.

We created an engaging + fun environment by:

  • Guests learned the history of dumplings, how they relate to the Lunar New Year, and learning to actually make dough guests took home at the end of the night
  • Expertly curated wine pairings from Bay Grape to match pre-meal snacks and meal courses, with sparkling wine upon arrival
  • Designing the layout of the class to facilitate conversation between attendees, as well as listening to the chef and facilitators
  • Sending a recap email to the group with recipes to recreate them at home
