From the beginning of time, families have connected and remained connected around food. Gathering at the family table for Saturday morning breakfasts and Sunday Dinners is where prayer, life discussions, decisions, belly-aching laughter, and memories are made! Cooking is not only the art of creating beautiful dishes and food presentations but the art of creating experiences and memories that last a lifetime.
Think about it; we all have experiences and memories from times spent with family and friends around the kitchen table in an atmosphere where food was at the center. Sadly, today's hustle and bustle and fast-paced lifestyles are creeping into an area that has been essential in our lives. Therefore, it's imperative to preserve the impact of cooking, which reaches far beyond the kitchen and into the hearts and lives of every person for years to come!
