Culinary Hub is the encompassing title bestowed on this new project. A lot will be happening at Purple Spoon – cooking classes, Farm To Table + Beyond Dinners, retail of stellar ingredients & sustainably produced wines, prepared foods and, of course, our Locally Grown Market featuring produce, meats, eggs, coffee, seafood and micro greens all grown or produced within a 50 mile radius of our kitchen. This new culinary venue is in hopes of inspiring each of you to enjoy being part of the culinary community we have created here in Southwest Florida!
The color Purple is the union of Red and Blue.
Red represents the fire, the passion and heat of the kitchen and cooking. Red is also the representative color of the Earth, the source of our nourishing foods, may it be plants or animals.
Blue represents calm and controlled ~ how I run my kitchen. Our events are about the enjoyment of cooking which is best experienced in a comfortable environment where inspiration can prosper. Blue is also representative of the expansive oceans of this planet, from where we harvest the bounty of seafood and sea plants that are so enjoyable in our meals. The oceans of Earth are also the home of phytoplankton which are the key to healthy oxygen production for our planet; healthy oceans provide a clean, nourishing home to these vital sea creatures that keep our air healthy for the land dwellers.
Bring together those core elements found in the art of cooking and on our planet and you get Purple.
Then the spoon… well just about everything that is really delicious is best enjoyed when eaten with a spoon!
Welcome to my culinary oasis.
