Quotes:
Brendan Marshall, CEO and co-founder, Kitchit
"The success of our San Francisco debut made it clear that people want the ability to connect directly with chefs and create a unique dining experience amongst friends. Los Angeles is a great addition with its contrasting celebrity chefs and historic food culture. Selecting Los Angeles as our second market is a natural next step in empowering more people to enjoy the Kitchit experience."

Marcel Vigneron, Top Chef-All Star, Chef on Kitchit
"I'm beyond excited to create a culinary buzz with Kitchit during their L.A. kick-off. With Kitchit, chefs get to do what they love most: create one-of-a-kind plates for one-of-a-kind events while interacting with the guests. Angelenos now have access to their city's most sought after culinary experts to bring their perfect event imaginings to fruition. Intimate and unparalleled chef-guest connections will be an integral part of each event experience. I'm thrilled for this unique element and can't wait to showcase my art and creativity in the freedom the Kitchit format brings."
