The Flipping Boards
This is where we truly excel and explore our passion for emotion in food and its' providence.
I (nims) build a list of complementary "ingredients" each month based on what our local farmers and suppliers have harvested and collected.
Each menu item on the boards are then designed around produce in hyper season and the food memories that those choices ignite.
A first cook with recipes start to play out on a Wednesday.
By Friday; the boards begin to flip, remaining for the entire month.
Christmas is a little bit different
I love Christmas (but hate tinsel). It’s such a beautiful time of year; a Season of Miracles in fact. The last 2 Christmases have seen me write a menu that reflects the reason for the season through A Christmas Carol. I choose a Carol and interpret it based on the writer’s intention, splitting the song across all 12 boards. I then write a Menu and interpret it’s meaning using each ingredients’ Symbolic Gestures. A Blessing is then written using the verse’s intention and the gestures. When you order from the board, a Christmas Blessing is delivered to you along with your cutlery. These Blessings are meant to be delivered with the true Spirit of Christmas. We sincerely hope that they bring Joy to you this Season.
