Mood themed dinner party toolkits for group or solo dining
COOK . CONNECT . CONTEMPLATE
Food is capable of altering our moods, not just our health. CONTEMPLATES is a series of playful and reflective menus exploring how the contents of our plate can affect the contents of our mind.
Choose from moods such as comfort, gratitude, humour, and affection, and journey through individual menus showcasing ingredients chosen for their ability to inspire the associated character traits. Think dark chocolate for self-care; lime for playfulness; pistachio for patience. An accompanying conversation menu includes questions to uplift, amuse, and spark connection while you dine; virtually or in person.
Knowing how to look after ourselves deserves to be counted as one of the great arts of life. Our dinner table is a great place to start.
Inside each CONTEMPLATES toolkit:
How it works: solo or group dining
Key ingredients and character traits
Recipes for a 3 course plant-based dinner party
A themed conversation menu
Cook your way through 3 courses of plant-based recipes or use the key ingredients as a starting point for your own culinary experiments. For foodies of all abilities.
This is a free resource made for connection.
If you feel able to give, you can buy me dinner in return.
