Palate. Passion. Purpose.



We’re on a mission to fill you up. Food, of course!, but zest, passion and joy are served here, too. You’ll not only find inspired recipes, but you’ll also learn the fundamentals… making spice blends, marinades, dressings and sauces.


Passionate Producers

Telling the tale of producers that go the extra step, preserving traditions and producing in a sustainable way. We are blessed to call these people friends and are honored to be able to share their stories with you.

Collection of stories ranging from eating the rations of a Syrian refugee to raise funds so that vulnerable people might rebuild their lives in safety, a campaign I took on again in the summer of 2021, to hunger and food security and waste.
