Cooking a superb meal is the best possible gift that we can give friends and family.
As a child I taught myself to cook for that very reason. Growing up, I was invited away on vacations a lot, and I didn’t have a holiday house to reciprocate the generosity, so I taught myself to cook for my host family as a way of conveying my gratitude.
From the outset, I cooked with the goal of giving what I savored every time I took a bite of my Grandmother’s or Mum’s cooking, LOVE. I like to serve a meal prepared with love, in a setting created with equal passion. Good food in a good setting, equals an occasion.
I think we like our occasions the way we like our people — real. It’s not about impressing our company but creating an experience that inspires.
