Thanks for joining us
It’s one thing when you have an idea, but to transform an idea into something real or tangible takes thinking, creativity, and ultimately the will to dedicate yourself to that idea. Much like seeds need soil, water, nutrients, and sunlight to transform into plants, an idea takes inspiration, time, skill, and collaboration to turn into something whole.
When we first came up with the idea to start our own blog, it sounded like a good idea but the process of turning an idea into reality seemed like too much to think about. Over time, we kept coming back to the idea because deep down, we both knew it was something we would enjoy and be good at. Our friends or loved ones would comment on how together or individually we are good at cooking, sourcing food, meal planning, writing, photography, and above all loving the experience of eating good food with others. This created more of a desire to turn that first idea into this blog. So here we are.
Through the lens of the To Gather Blog, we’ll share our culinary lives with you. We’ll show you how to get the most flavor and nutrition out of your food while minimizing your impact on the world around you. By sourcing primarily local and sustainable foods, you’ll be able to satisfy your appetite and ensure the very resources you’re using will still be there for the next generation. Our experience with food will always be shared with the understanding that food is meant to bring people together. For all of human history, food has not only provided nourishment but it has also brought people closer to one another.
By understanding how to properly select, store, prepare, cook, and serve food you’ll maximize its flavor and your body’s ability to absorb the bionutrients within each ingredient. We promise it will be easy to understand and you’ll be left wondering why nobody told you sooner! There is a lot you can do right in the kitchen and a lot you can do wrong. We’ll help you sort out everything from the very basics of cooking to the bigger, more involved processes that take place.
Food is equal parts nourishment, love, and enjoyment. So please, gather with us and enrich your life with cooking.
