Gina Ruccione

To say I’m passionate about food/travel/humanity is an understatement — it’s my life’s purpose. One hundred percent. A couple of years ago I left Corporate America to pursue all things food & beverage related and I’ve never looked back. I’m a food writer, blogger, pop up dinner host with an associated web series and podcast, the founder of Wandering Whiskey Society and I was even a contestant on Master Chef Season 7. In 2017 I was the Culinary Director for Stage + Table and produced 100+ food & beverage events. In 2018 I joined forces with NK Agency, an international creative marketing firm in Los Angeles, as their Director of Marketing, Food & Beverage. I know - it’s all a mouthful. At the end of the day, I’m just a connector. Helping businesses find their footing and cultivate an audience is my JAM! I love what I do and I do it with heart.

Hostess with the mostess

Pop Up Dinners + Happy Hours + strategic Networking

Sometimes food is only as good as the company and wine it is paired with, and while I'm not a connoisseur of fine wine (I'm more of a @wanderingwhiskeysociety kind of gal), I do enjoy good company. Hosting has become a lost art. It's not just about putting food on the table and keeping drinks flowing. It's about curating an experience. It's creating a space that is fun, nostalgic, familial and undeniably comfortable - a space where people can connect in a meaningful way. Let’s break bread. And then, let’s do business.

Los Angeles & Beyond

 

Based in Los Angeles, California, I work with some of the coolest & freshest spaces around Southern California. But, borders are not boundaries for me, and I will travel anywhere for good food, interesting conversation, and the possibility to share it with others.
