Food First Events & Catering Co. began in 2005 when Chef David Gussin graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena, Ca. He went on to work in the kitchens of James Beard Award-winning chefs Norman Van Aiken, Carrie Nahabedian, and Douglas Rodriguez. After spending 3 years in the Windy City of Chicago, Chef Gussin returned home to Los Angeles. 
Soon after, Chef Gussin took the reigns for SBE’s hotly anticipated Hollywood restaurant Cleo.  After 2 years with SBE, Chef Gussin made the switch to the NY based STK Steakhouse in West Hollywood. Following his successes with STK, Chef Gussin expanded his repertoire to encompass cuisine from the French Mediterranean as he oversaw culinary operations for another NY based restaurant, Fig & Olive. 

We have hosted many weddings and events for the Hollywood elite and fortune 500 companies including Vanity Fair, Estee Lauder, BET magazine, Veuve Clicquot, Entertainment Magazine, InStyle, and more -- including many star-studded Oscar and Grammy Awards Events. With this being a chef owned company, we encompass an extra special touch! We would love to give your event the attention to detail it deserves!
