Société Gourmet was in November 2009 a Romanian start-up project and the first to offer recreational cooking classes for amateurs in Romania. The publications of that time called us ‘a start-up in recession time ’ (Forbes Romania, Deutsche Zeitung für Rumänien) and we have been growing steadily but firmly ever since, developing new and novel experiences for the local public.
We are 100% a Romanian service with an international team expertise and a proud community of people passionate about the small and essential pleasures of life – what the French precisely name ‘bien vivre’.
Our space is a 107 years old house built in ‘Little Paris’ architectural style and locted in the centre of Bucharest, between Dacia Boulevard and Calea Moșilor. The beautiful house with high ceilings and luminous windows puts it’s heart right in the middle and calls it The Kitchen. The inside space has a simple white design dominated by the use of rescued oak massive tables also used for the kitchen islands paired with stainless steel tops. Here and there you can see details that remind you of the Transylvanian heritage but also posters of pork and beef cuts displayed on the walls. It is simple but yet a statement.
Beside the workshops and activities we offer for groups, SG Event House can be fully rented for private events, completely making use of it’s facilities.
Raluca Hagivreta-Ichim is the founder and manager of Société Gourmet and since 9 years is overlooking every event and taking care of the quality of service and enjoyment of the guests.
