What A Night!

The Evening at the Coop was just perfect!

the food

What sums it up is this note from one of our guests that night...

"Thank you for the most amazing night/dinner/people/your family/your home.  You guys rocked it Saturday night,
what a beautiful, lovely dinner. 
So many like minded folks!"

A magical night was had by all!

There were tons of like minded folks and they all sat next to who they were suppose to sit next too.  there was no assigned seating.  We loved how community was being built around the tables and how many connections that were made through food and sharing of each others lives.

The chef and sous chef...David and Sloan

heirloom lettuce salad fresh picked that day.

As you can see from the dishes, everyone went home full and happy!

We will be doing another dinner in the spring,
 if you are interested in joining the delicious revolution.

The principles of the delicious revolution: 

Eat locally and sustainably, eat seasonally, shop at farmers' markets, plant a garden, conserve, compost and recycle, cook simply, cook together, eat together and remember food is precious. 

Thank you Alice Waters for blazing the trail for future generations
of this delicious revolution.  

With enormous gratitude!

The Family
