Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth

― Henry David Thoreau



Through shared meals and the act of cooking communally we celebrate the traditions of food and gathering. The food is seasonally focused market fresh. We work with local artisans and crafters to create monthly dinners in our space - for more details on upcoming events please visit our shop.


Our recent Cookbook entitled Sunday Suppers Recipes + Gatherings has been receiving wide acclaim globally and was voted by the NY Times as a top cookbook of the year. It is a collection of gatherings and recipes for small groups of 4-6, with the hope to inspire the art of community. It is available for sale here.

Sunday Suppers started five years ago in our home. A few friends gathered at our apartment. We cooked and dined and made a toast. From there our dinners have evolved and we have grown into a beautiful new space, our community has expanded beyond our expectations. The concept however centers on simplicity and a love of food.

For more photos, recipes and inspiration please visit our blog.
