“The Ghetto Gourmet began as an original underground dining experience in a basement apartment in Oakland, California. The Townsend brothers, Joe the chef and Jeremy the poet, cultivated a loyal following literally from the ground up. Every Monday night, 15-30 strangers gathered on their living room floor for a chance to make new friends and enjoy deliciously creative cuisine.
“What started out as an experiment has turned into a movement. Influenced by traditional salons and a growing communal dining trend, The Ghetto Gourmet is excited to offer a range of services producing and directing private dinner parties and supperclub events.
“The Ghetto Gourmet is proud and grateful to be a product of the vibrant East Bay underground community, and we welcome your support and assistance. And any chefs, artists or performers interested in collaboration are encouraged to get in touch.
“Hold on to your fork…”
