We Are Family. It is clear that the this century will be one of connectivity, networking and functioning within a group – yet without losing our personal traits and talents. The idea of the family is being redefined and expanded to include close friends, pets and new kinds of units.  Like in the design world where we see many talented couples, brothers and collectives, our family identity has become more important than the individual and we are searching for more humanized connections.  Celebrating these bonds is often federated by food: an improvised experience that brings us together to break bread and share a meal at a communal table.

In the spring time, our craving for organic ingredients and local produce leads us to the outdoors, where we can be immersed in nature and the very earth from which our harvest comes.
