Transform the way you understand food

A NEW WAY TO COOK, EAT & ENJOY

LESS IS MORE

“Eat! Eat!” grandmas and moms used to cry. We’re ending ‘abbondanza.’  

Less is more.

Less heat. Less fats. More flavor.

Enjoy all of the things that you like… Just less of each.  Great diet, NOT dieting!

De-BRANDTRY

De-brand your pantry! We buy a lot of pre-made, pre-mixed foods, and pay more for a lot of multi-syllable stuff into our food that’s not good.

Restructure your pantry, refrigerator and your aromata with the basic building blocks to make virtually anything!

LEARN NEW STUFF

We’re going to break out of that, and introduce you to new cooking techniques, kitchen gear, new foods, spices and flavors from all over the world.

We’re going to dive into the science, the molecular gastronomy of foods. What does salt really do to meat? Why does something smell the way it does?

DEVELOP YOUR CULINARY THUMBPRINT

As a fellow cookbook junkie, I’ve realized that there are acres of recipes in these wonderful books that I may never get to cook, and, even if I did each dutifully as the recipe lays it out, it is only one way to approach the food(s) being made. I will teach you the basic “notes” of the music of cooking, so when you look at our recipes, or any other, you can apply your imagination, your skills, and your own unique culinary “voice” to create dishes that are as unique as your thumbprint, while honoring and expanding upon some of the great world traditions, as the professional chefs do!

Let the adventures in your kitchen begin.
