Create the event you have imagined with Open Kitchen in Santa Fe photo by Doug Mirriam

Imagine your large event or fundraiser having a new and exciting concept that brings people together in celebration of amazing food, but also comes with strong support from planning through implementation. We aim to create successful engaging, unique experiences that your guests will always remember.

"Last October, during one of our key seasonal events, The New Mexico State Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts selected Open Kitchen and Hue Chan Karels to provide their unique culinary knowledge and creativity for this private gallery reception. Not only did they demonstrate their extraordinary skills, but were there to assist us every step of the way. Hue Chan was involved with us throughout the event process and she created an interesting menu with an array of tasty hors' deourvres appropriate for all pallets and dietary requirements. Open Kitchen's service team also provided the right balance of friendly service for this signature event. In the future, we look forward to another original experience with Open Kitchen and Hue-Chan's amazing inspiration." -Olivia Ayala (Program Chair, New Mexico State Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts)

"I cannot say enough about Hue-Chan and Erica Tai, and the greatness that is Open Kitchen. Incredible flavors, flawless executions, and unending patience. Having this wonderful chef in your home is an unparalleled experience." - Michelle Midyette

"Open Kitchen and Hue-Chan are absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend them for any of your catering needs. Hue-Chan is not only a delight to work with, she is knowledgeable and extremely creative. She listens to your needs and works tirelessly to be sure everything is handled without complication. Her food is delicious, she uses only the freshest ingredients and her presentation is top notch. Sit back, relax and let Hue-Chan + her team help with planning your next party! Cheers!!" - Haley Green
