A letter of intent
To my community,
'Mama Knows' came to life almost 10 years ago and the evolution of this creation has morphed and bloomed as much as I have. Over a decade working in a range of kitchens across the Bay Area and well over 10,000 hours put into my craft. Although I am most comfortable in the kitchen it's time to create something that serves my family and community wholly.
I believe in the healing powers of whole foods and that people truly want to eat better, but convenience and accessibility have to be prioritized. Locally there are few resources or options that offer fresh whole foods so here is where i'm choosing to start. I plan on launching a weekly meal prep service to help introduce you to more plant based options. In this online space I will share recipes that will be easy to duplicate with ingredients that are easily accessible in our small town through online content and videos.
I hope to build strong and lasting partnerships with our local purveyors, organic farms, and land stewards. The vulnerability in our food supply has been exposed with the current pandemic and climate change will continue to affect us all in the coming years. Collaborative action and efforts to address food justice and food sovereignty must be prioritized within our micro communities as communal care is the future. Radical imagination and deep discussions will always be prioritized and welcomed at my table.
If there's one thing I hope to pass on through this creative pursuit and my craft is how fiercely I have been loved and guided along the way. I look forward to learning, cooking, and growing along side you and your families.
The deepest gratitude for sharing your time.
