Meet Our Creative Director...
Charese John is more than a “chef” and way beyond the title of “designer.” John is a creative force with plenty of innovation, vision, and talent. She can see the horizon and she knows how to build it. John has roots in the soil of Corporate Hospitality via Fortune 500 companies like Safeway and Dean & Deluca. Those roots grew stronger as co-owner of Revive Events & Catering, a boutique catering business in Washington, DC. In just the past five years, John and her team have designed more than 3,000 events including private dinners, corporate receptions, and weddings with 1,000+ guests.
Above ground, Charese has also learned to own the sky—and knows no limits. While studying with celebrity chef, Marcus Samuelson, John mastered the art of international cuisine with a flair. Throughout this time she was gaining a deep understanding of the wants and the needs of the entire dining experience: the internal requirements of the host, the guests’ palettes, and the external environment to hold and enhance it all.
The mission is to create expanded experiences to merge worlds of cuisine with culture and custom designs.
