Launch of Txoko USA Creates Unforgettable Gatherings


Virtual Fine Dining Experiences Travel Around the Globe in a Gastronome’s Dream

Txoko USA was born out of the realization that we are social beings and the gathering of people over the shared experience of delicious food and storytelling is part of what makes us human.”

— Executive Chef and Founder Jackie Keller

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 29, 2021 / — The pandemic did not quench the thirst many have for travel and connection. To satisfy those desires, SimpliHealth Growers™ founder Jackie Keller and Executive Sous Chef Oscar Gonzalez (a Level II Sommelier and Michelin star chef) created exclusive gastronomical adventures to share with clients and friends. The virtual events proved so successful that today they announce the next iteration, Txoko USA, an unforgettable shared culinary journey perfect for corporate events, fundraisers, family gatherings, holiday celebrations and more that are rooted in the intersection of fine dining and healthy, sustainable living.

A “txoko” is an inclusive experience centered around food, sharing stories, and creating community. Originating in the Basque region of Spain in 1870 and translating to “cozy corner,” modern txokos are members-only clubs of friends who gather to eat, sing and cook together. The interactive virtual affairs are designed to bring people together through a shared meal, weaving together multi-sensory components to create a culinary showcase that will inform and delight all in attendance.

Txoko USA offers several different tasting events – including ten-course menus, hors d’oeuvres, and truffle and dessert tastings, all paired with wine or mocktails designed and prepared exclusively by Keller and Gonzalez. Everything is fully prepared and delivered ready to enjoy, and shipped anywhere in the United States.

Client David Rosenthal – President & CEO of Curtis-Rosenthal, Inc, exclaimed, “Jackie and Oscar saved the holidays for our company. Their passionate insights taught us how smell, taste, sight, and texture all work together to create a completely absorbing culinary experience. The wines were all different, complex, and oh so enjoyable. Each course was so thoughtful, interesting, creative, and absolutely delicious!”
