Put the food expertise of Assaggiare Mendocino to work for you. If you or your business desire to go deeper in your culinary journey, or you just need to outsource some of the necessary tasks associated with your culinary-based business, we can tailor services to meet your needs. Following are descriptions of the types of services we provide.




Staff training and education for the hospitality and retail food trade that allows business owners to keep their focus on the business’ and their own core competencies.

These programs allow the small business owner to educate and train their staff in new food and service trends on an as-needed basis without committing to costly, and often easily outdated, canned training resources. The business owner can also custom-tailor these classes and programs to the specific needs of their staff and customers. This inherent flexibility saves both time and money. Classes can also be videotaped for use with new hires and refresher courses.




Business Development consulting services can be just the boost the sole proprietor needs to take an artisan food business to the next level. Are you a cheese maker, baker, market farmer or producer? Is time your most valuable commodity next to your production expertise? Business service assistance can be invaluable if you are a small, artisan food producer. Do you find that, as a producer, you lack the time and business skills to promote and sustain your business beyond break-even?



Put “expertise” into your food “expert.” Food writing is an essential piece in the puzzle of marketing and advocating your food products and services.

Assaggiare Mendocino can be the voice of your product, service, cause, or region. The multitude of lifestyle publications today can be a maze of options, even for the food or hospitality professional. Does your non-profit event require interface with the food and travel media? Let us be the voice of your organization, service, or product. Food writing is both a science and an art, and requires a broad-based knowledge of all facets of current ideas and trends. Our experienced staff can tailor a piece to your wants and needs.
