Why We Gather: Our Story
What is your food philosophy? What is your life philosophy?
These two simple (or not so simple) questions sparked the idea now come to life as Gather.
My love for food began when I was a baby, back in 1977, in my Great-Grandmother’s kitchen. There, I ate her homemade chicken broth before I was old enough to consume solid food. The unbelievably delicious scent of olive oil, sautéed garlic, basil, braised meats, and homemade chicken stock was always present at Nonna’s house, and it beckoned countless visitors to her kitchen. Nonna was not a Chef, but she was an amazing Cook. Nonna’s kitchen served the best meal that anyone could ever have.
Now, my Grandfather was a Chef. He gained his professional chops while serving in the U.S. Navy and had an extensive career working in all types of restaurants, from diners to fine dining establishments. His salad dressings were legendary and will live on at Gather.
These food memories infuse Gather and provide us with inspiration to bring deliciously wholesome food to Carson City.
We Gather to fill our bellies, our hearts, and our souls.
Angela Bullentini Wolf, Owner
Cooking with intention and purpose, creating small batch, high quality, seasonal dishes.
Food that takes us places and tells us stories.
Food that fuels curiosity and discovery.
Celebrating the moment
There is no sincerer love than the love of food.
Food, in the end, in our own tradition, is something holy. It’s not about nutrients and calories. It’s about sharing. It’s about honesty. It’s about identity.
The secret of success is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.
People who love to eat are always the best people.
If you want to sing out, sing out, and if you want to be free, be free, cause there’s a million ways to be, you know that there are.
This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful: in a word, more alive.
Cooking is like love: it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.
Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.
Life is a combination of magic and pasta.
Cheese: milk’s leap towards immortality.
We all eat, and it would be a waste of opportunity to eat badly.
Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
A recipe has no soul. You, as the cook, must provide the soul.
If you’re wondering whether or not something is made of real food, ask yourself if you could make it in your home kitchen if you had the time, ingredients, and skill. If so, you’ve got yourself some real food.
