My very first memories as a child revolve around a giant double oven and a gas stove, overflowing with flavors of butter, bacon, fried chicken and cinnamon buns.
My great-grandmother was a genius. When I was just 5 years old, she would pull up a chair next to the stove for me to watch in awe as she flipped perfectly fried eggs ever-so-delicately, or slid a luscious apple pie into the oven.
Over the years, every chance we had together, she taught me all she knew about food, the science of baking, how to taste flavor, to always cook with passion; and most importantly, to do everything with love. That makes all the difference, she would say.
When she passed away at the ripe age of 96, every single person who spoke at her memorial shared the same memory: that she “loved well”.
And I decided right then and there, that I would take all that she had taught me, and would do my best to carry on her legacy: to love well.
So now, every chance I get, I cook from my heart, and my only wish is that everyone would know, from the very first bite, how loved they are.
Hello! I'm Meg, and I am the event planner/stylist for at the table with Love Well Kitchen.
Ever since I was a little girl and would check out all the cookbooks from the library just to plan the most extravagant (imagined) dinner parties, I knew that there was nothing more I would love to do than create beauty and a place to be celebrated at the table.
It's been my joy to be able to do that for so many over the last 10 years and now to partner with two amazing women, as we bring at the table to life!
I believe in beauty, that details speak value, I believe in conversation face to face, that real community is the longing of every human heart, and I believe that there is a seat at the table for every person. To celebrate and be celebrated. Cheers!
I have dreamed my entire life of making things beautiful. Of drawing out the beauty inside people, spaces, and things. As a florist and stylist I love being able to set a table and create a space for vulnerability and laughter, a space where stories are shared and celebrated.
