Presentation of the book “Florence by Cy Decosse” - Stibbert Museum, October 2009
Memoirs of a party organized in occasion of his previous photographic exhibition in Florence at the beginning of 2000, Cy Decosse involved us in the collateral initiatives at the Artistic Photographic Exhibition at the Academy of Art and Design in Florence. One of these was the Gala organized for him and his guests at the Stibbert Museum; 120 people visited the Museum and tasted the delicacies of Leonardo, our chef. In the book, which documents the Exhibition and the route that Cy organized for his friends in an intense Tuscany week, there are also pictures of the party as well as the recipes of our chef’s delightful dishes.

Cesvot gathered together its Volunteers from Tuscany in Siena, in the splendid Medicean Fortress of Tuscany for a business meeting and party with a concert and lunch. Gerist organized an 800 seat buffet; dominant theme were the matching colours of orange and green, CESVOT’s company colours; the surrounding nature, great artistic value and embellished with a breathtaking view over the rooftops of Siena all made the evening truly magical, with a mild spring temperature, a cordial and cheerful climate plus a buffet with delicious Tuscan specialities.

A classical aperitif in the Captain’s Halls passing onto the veranda for a 4 course Tuscan meal. Great appreciation for the menu and wines; a classical blue setting, with unusual centre-pieces adding a pleasant splash of colour.

ANPEQ, National Professional Association of Experts qualified in Radioprotection, celebrated its convention in Florence at the end of March and entrusted Gerist with the closing Gala, organized in the splendid Villa Vittoria Gallery of Firenze for 120 guests. A very classical setting with ecru linen and white porcelain “interrupted” only by a few insertions of transparency and very few flowers, a pleasing blend of traditional and modern.
Hospitality Suite for Hugo Boss at Pitti Bimbo - June 2009
For the summer edition of Pitti Bimbo 2009, Gerist organized the hospitality suite of Hugo Boss, famous designer label known all over the world.

Numerous guests were entertained in the Hugo Boss space during the 3 day exhibition.
The Couscous Restaurant at the 74° International Artisan Exhibition – Florence, April- May 2010
For the 9 days of the 74° International Artisan Exhibition in Florence, from April 24th to May 2th 2010, Gerist organized a restaurant inspired by the North African culture proposing several varieties of couscous rigorously prepared with couscous steamer pots. The setting recalled the colours of those wonderful lands, with drapes and table linen in yellows, reds and oranges. From this positive experience Gerist produced a small Arab style “model” banquet that can satisfy the ever increasing demand for ethnic cuisine.
