Manresa Announces Chocolate Pop-Up, 12th Annual Citrus Celebration, and the Latest Culinary Collaboration with Oslo’s Maaemo

We welcome you, our guests and friends, to join us as we kick off a new year of special events and culinary collaborations!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we are hosting our first ever Manresa Chocolate Pop-Up in front of Manresa Bread Los Gatos (276 N Santa Cruz Ave) on Saturday and Sunday, February 10 & 11 from 9:00am–1:00pm. Pastry Chef Renata Ameni leads the charge, offering boxes of chocolates created by her team with six pieces for $15 and a dozen for $28.

On Sunday, March 4, we will host our 12th annual Citrus Modernista Dinner. During this exclusive event, you will experience a variety of citrus both familiar and exotic from Gene Lester’s farm in Watsonville, CA. Chef Kinch and his team will personally pick the citrus from the orchard and create a tasting menu featuring the bounty of Gene’s farm. This event is one of the only ways to taste the fruits from Gene’s prized and renowned orchard. We hope to share the evening with you!

Lastly, on Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15, we will host three-Michelin star Chef Esben Holmboe Bang of Maaemo in Oslo, Norway as we continue our guest chef collaborations. Chef Bang will join us in the Manresa kitchen to cook a special tasting menu, introducing his locally and seasonally driven Norwegian cuisine. Maaemo opened in Oslo in 2010 and is the only restaurant in Norway to hold three Michelin stars. Chef Bang himself is the youngest chef to earn three Michelin stars, and was named one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential Chefs in the World” in 2013. He is known for capturing the vibrant, essential flavors of Norway, and uses entirely organic, biodynamic, and wild ingredients.

We look forward to seeing you at these upcoming events. For the latest details and announcements, follow us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. For reservations, please call Manresa at 408.354.4330 or visit us online at
