We create rustic, yet elegant dishes that celebrate the flavors of the natural ingredients. We make many of our own breads, syrups, pickles, jams, dressings, and sauces. And when we don't, we source from the artisanal producers that we believe are the most talented and ethical of New York.  We consciously step away from our culture's industrialized agriculture, over-processing, and fast food- and instead, work with organic and "slow" ingredients from local farms whenever possible. 

Unlike most other catering companies, Harvest & Revel doesn’t have set menus because we customize every menu that we create, responding to the vision of each client.

Directed by this vision, we draw upon the ingredients and flavors being offered by the current season to design a memorable and delicious culinary experience- with integrity at every point of the process.

Sara Elise
Owner + Design

Sara Elise is a culinary artist and entrepreneur residing in Brooklyn, NY. As a transplant to one of New York City’s major food deserts, Sara was inspired to help transform her community’s relationship to affordable, locally sourced foods.

While working in Private Wealth Management after business school, Sara started to explore food as a tool for self-care and healing.  Through this exploration, Sara began hosting “Seasonal Tasting Events,” an invitation for community members to experience an authentically rustic, slow, and organic relationship to the crops harvested for the empowerment and reclamation of self, and community. Continuing with the mission of using all natural, organic, locally sourced, and seasonal ingredients, Sara would grow to found Bed Stuy Kitchen in 2013- reborn as Harvest & Revel in 2016.

Not only an advocate for food justice, Sara is also committed to the personal development of urban professionals- offering sliding scale career coaching and mentorship services. She also hosts day-long retreats focused on combining delicious food, career coaching, and aspects of yoga & meditation- with the overarching belief that people are able to grow to their fullest potential only once all aspects of their life are aligned positively.

With her background in both financial services and personal nutrition & wellness, Sara and her team at Harvest & Revel are helping their clients, and community, elevate to their fullest selves- one nutritious meal, and conversation, at a time.

ORA WISE
CHEF PARTNER

Ora Wise grew up in her family’s vegetarian kitchen and organic garden, influenced and inspired by their Italian and Jewish heritages.  From a year-long weekly potluck for community organizers & artists, to brunch party pop-ups, to giant dinners in collaboration with urban farms-  she has nurtured community through cooking all her life. After fifteen years as a community organizer and media educator, Ora shifted her focus to centralize food as her daily creative work.

After launching a blog focused on the culture and politics of food, she opened Pops, an organic handmade shaved ice & popsicle stand- sourcing ingredients from her own garden as well as local farmers, on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida.  

She returned to beloved Brooklyn and along with catering special events, worked as a private culinary coach and the chef for artist retreats.

Ora currently combines her background in community education with her excitement about the culinary world by coordinating FIG (Food Issues Group)- a unique collective of people who raise, distribute, cook, and serve food that gather to cultivate creative and practical ways of addressing issues of sustainability related to environmental impact, food justice, and profitability.

In joining Harvest & Revel, she has found the perfect home- collaborating with Sara Elise and their diverse & passionate team to create inspiring experiences and celebrations that are holistically designed, elevated by seasonal food that is flavorful, nourishing, intentionally-sourced, and colorful.
