What we're about

This is a group for foodies who believe in delicious, nutritious, and beautiful food made without compromise. A "Flexitarian" is a person who has no hard and fast rules about their diet, but will eat a primarily plant based diet, while including some meat, poultry, or fish occasionally. We're sharing hearty meals and fun classes that bridge the gap between food science and art, with our community of like-minded environmentally conscious foodies who believe in a food system that sustains people and our planet. We care about the environment equally as much as we care about how our food looks and tastes. "Food is our common ground, our universal experience" - James Beard.
