Sometimes, somewhere, someone comes along and asks, “would you like to have a drink with me later?” You look at this someone and see a tiny [something], so you accept. The drink turns into long talks about all sorts of subjects, and long talks turn into more drinks, and more drinks ultimately turn into surprisingly dinner dates. Along the course of one week you manage to learn a lot about each other and suddenly this someone turns into someone special, someone that eventually you give your everything to. Pretty uniquely amazing!

Love is…complicated, sad, wonderful, amazing and necessary. It’s hard to define love, so I am not going to try. All I can say is, you just know when the right form of love finds you. You just know.

What is this post about? A celebration and an acknowledgement of the great love I found. This post is for my soon to be other half.

On June 8 wonderful and delightful humans from all over the world will come together to celebrate our love in a charming little town in the south of France called Varennes.

As I write this post I feel a great sense of excitement and anticipation. True, nervousness does surface but the overwhelming feeling of joy quickly takes over. I will be posting documentation/photos after our event.

I raise my glass to you love and toast to us, our health, and happiness. See you on June 8th as you handsomely stand there taking it all in. Love you. xo

our video

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, slight difference though in this case because it’s a video. This video signifies a major part of what is all about. I am really amazed to see people’s responses and I really hope we can influence people to eat better, understand food and push personal boundaries within a comfortable realm.

It’s short, fun and a clear representation of our concept.  Feel free to comment and of course, share the video!

Lastly, I am very excited about Restaurant Day (May 17)!
