Private Dinner Event Planner
Our mission is to support our clients health by providing them with a wide variety of wholesome, health-supporting and delicious seasonal menu selections, using only the finest natural and/or organic meat, dairy and produce, ancient grains, natural sweeteners and whole food products. Our recipes feature organic produce and dairy, ancient grains and whole grain flours, (such as spelt and kamut, brown and wild rices and quinoa) and natural sweeteners (sucanat, turbinado, coconut sugar and brown rice syrup) as ingredients. We source free-range and/or organic meats from local butcher shops for use in our seasonal, wholesome, naturally delicious menu options. The cold-pressed organic, non-hydrogenated good oils and fats that we use as ingredients, along with the non-toxic, non-irradiated spices and seasonings, all serve to safeguard our clients health and well-being.
