That eventually grew into Supper Clubs across campus, at teachers’ apartments, bringing students and teachers together to prepare and share monthly dinners, ultimately sharing a sense of community. And community is what good food should be about. Fast forward many years (some spent working in restaurant kitchens and on restaurant floors) and again it was a shared love of good food that lead me to prepare organic lunches featuring local farmers’ fare/produce/ to my co-workers at a law firm. At that time I also launched my first company, Farmers’ Village, a cookie company using local ingredients, making meyerlemon lavender and dried cherry almond cookies.
