One-Bowl Dinners

March 4, 2011 at 11:19 am Leave a comment

Almost everything makes me think of food. I can be walking the dogs and wondering how long until my next snack. Someone can mention their landscaping and I wonder what they might be growing that’s edible. Sometimes I’m even planning the next meal as I eat the one in front of me.

That said, the latest thing that I have my mind on is One-Bowl Dinners. Eating is a sacred act and one that has been largely ignored, even when we’re in the middle of a meal. We eat in our cars, at our desks while we are on the computer, or while we do homework. We eat energy bars instead of a real meal comprised of real food.

One-Bowl Dinners, on the other hand, are designed to get you to relax and focus on the food and the nourishment it provides. You eat in the company of others, but the meal itself is eaten without speaking. It gives you the opportunity to explore non-verbal communication with your table mates and really focus on food that is prepared from real ingredients with care so that it is infused with good energy as it comes from the kitchen to your bowl.

In the next month, a One-Bowl Dinner will be coming to Adams Mountain Cafe, presented by Jessica Patterson of Root Down and Grow with a little help from yours truly. These dinners sell out, so watch for details and get ready for a party in your mouth and body!
