Patrician Company - Case Study, 6 Mar 2014 [cached]
Patty Gamboa Principal of Patrician Company
Patricia Ann Alcantara Gamboa was born in Manila and has traveled Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America is search of fresh ideas…for food, for entertainment, and for fun.
She has worked in several facets of the hospitality and events-production industry and received acclaim for her ability to educate, to entertain, and to host.
Even while in high school, Patty demonstrated her skills as an entrepreneur and a chef. She was the host of fEAST, a television cooking show, and was the proprietor of Patty’s Own, a gourmet catering service. She was the featured personality of an article in Business World regarding her already-evident competence in fine foods, presented well, at catered private parties.
Patty was internationally educated in Los Angeles, Chicago, the Philippines, England, and Switzerland, graduating from the prestigious PAREF Woodrose School in Manila. She rounded out her education at Bellerby’s College in Brighton UK and received A-levels in Fashion Photography, Marketing, and Economics. She studied costume design at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art and uses the skills she learned in order to provide outstanding décor and designs for her clients. Her studies in Hotelier Management at UCLA provide her with ongoing proficiency in staffing, risk management and budgeting.
She received her formal chef’s education at, and graduated from, the Center for Culinary Arts in 2001 with a Diploma in Culinary Arts and Technology Management.
In developing her own skills as a chef, Patty apprenticed under Jeremiah Tower, the “Godfather of Modern American Cooking,” and winner of two James Beard Awards.
Leveraging her skills in personnel management, etiquette and excellence in customer care, Patty, through In Good Taste, the consulting company she owned, was retained by Peninsula Hotels to train front-of-the-house staff. She was also retained to design several restaurants, plan their opening menus, and train the initial staff. Among those clients were Wasabi Bistro and Sake Bar, La Tienda, and IO Family K-TV, a high tech karaoke bar (hence the “K”) named after IO the largest moon of Jupiter.
Patty has been planning and producing events since 1998. Time Magazine once retained Patty for a private corporate dinner, and flew her to Hong Kong from Manila for this important event. Since the office did not have food preparation facilities, Patty had to supply and install a complete mini-kitchen in order to make this event a success. Eight guests dined in splendor on top floor terrace of the Hong Kong Citibank Tower.
She has shown her talents in the Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
One event for which Patty was particularly acclaimed was the Ideas and Design Exchange (INDEX) when she was tasked to manage dining logistics, menu planning, and décor for the Centennial Ball on behalf of the host country, the Philippines. Among the attendees at the World Trade Center were included the heads of state for a number of other countries. This eight-month assignment as Project Coordinator for the Philippine Government and its Department of Tourism culminated in a very successful event for the 3000 international guests.
Patty was seventeen years of age at the time of her appointment.
In Los Angeles, Patty increased her skills and knowledge with assignments as pastry chef at Morton’s and Nic’s, both internationally renowned for their excellence.
At Nic’s, Dean Martin’s preferred martini bar, Patty was a guest pastry chef and became known as a force in the business. She is now known to reserve “Dean’s table” when dining there with clients and friends.
Patty has been fortunate to experience what is meant by a truly high quality event. She brings that experience, and her own culinary skills, to each and every event she produces, whether it is an intimate private reception or a 6,000-person corporate launch. When she is not the chef du jour, she ensures the quality is up to the same standards she sets for herself. Patty uses only those catering professionals that live up to those standards.
Patty is a Professional Member of the James Beard Foundation.
She is a member of the Building Industry Association of Southern California and the Sales & Marketing Council of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.
She is a Board Member of Home Aid Los Angeles.
