Messermeister's Gather is an extraordinary culinary event space, strikingly designed to harmoniously blend beauty and functionality. Amidst the challenges of the early months of Covid, Chelcea & Kirsten passionately embarked on a mission to build a space that fosters community, a kitchen studio to create culinary content, a gastronomic classroom for learning and demonstrating, and a versatile venue for private and public events. In addition, Gather acts to showcase all of Messermeister's products, making it a true multi-purpose hub that serves and nurtures the community.
Exhibiting a captivating blend of creativity and inspiration, Gather's showroom and kitchen resonate with the artistic energy of Ojai, providing an authentic connection to the region's farms, orchards, and vineyards. The interior space features custom Viking kitchen appliances and warm wood tones that are complemented by natural elements such as wood paneling, polished concrete flooring, and porcelain countertops. Personalized touches, such as the spectacular light fixture from bespoke lighting designer Paul Ferrante that illuminates the handmade, live edge communal dining table carved from Ojai Sycamores, elevate Gather to an unrivaled level of sophistication. Additionally, the space is equipped with the latest technology, including video monitors for each product line and the ability to conduct live video streams.
