Red Carpet Wine Dinner


Our Red Carpet Wine Dinner was held on the evening of April 25, 2015.  The dinner was catered by originaLa gusTo.  Chef Cris Sanchez and his Partner JC were here in March to show off their abilities.  We were so impressed we booked them immediately.  Here is a sample of what our quest enjoyed.

originaLa gusTo

Originala Gusto is a North Texas based catering company founded by good friends & business partners “Chef Cris” Sanchez and Jon “JC” Cunningham. Cris and JC forged the idea for the catering business together from a common passion to share the delicious & original tastes created by the “freestyle way of cooking” Chef Cris brings to their menus using only fresh, organic and high-quality ingredients delivered in creative, classy presentations.

Cris and JC chose the name Originala Gusto from the language Esperanto which in English translates to “Original Taste”. The Esperanto language was chosen because it was created as a universal language. Esperanto was introduced in 1887 as a second language that would allow people who speak different native languages to communicate, yet at the same time retain their own languages and cultural identities. Cris and JC felt this was fitting for the company name as the goal of Originala Gusto is to develop its menus in a way that represents a tasteful and beautiful expression of many nations and cuisines across the world that is not only delightful to taste, but is also organic, artistic, colorful and entertaining.
