Think about it. When we make a meal with love and intention, we create a work of art. We transform an array of disparate ingredients into something whole and completely new. That’s magic.

Then, we share our feast with ourselves and others. We’re connected and nurtured through the very act of eating and sharing a meal. Like the food we savor, we’re transformed.

Let’s feast!
