Life has a way of humbling a man…This website is a composition of thoughts, ideas, recipes, techniques and ramblings through the life and time of a Gourmand. Building a community of individuals who ask enough questions and continue to refine their own convictions with an open mind. We have discovered a way of life forged from cooking, butchery, gardening, gathering, craftsmanship and a restless quest to continuously evolve our own understatings of this epicurean world we live in. We’ve been fortunate enough to have made a beautiful existence in the most ironic of places; The heart of Wisconsin. We have come to call this place “home”. At times, we have allowed our passion & dedication to be limited to the confines of singular kitchen journey. All of the hype and prestige, the expectation associated with the definition of “Chef”. We’ve spent years wandering through an industry looking for answers, what is good, why is it good, what to eat, what to cook, what is Our Food… The Kitchen is a beautiful place of it’s own, the place that raised our founder, Anthony Chavez, it’s a place to be respected. In all fairness though, Anthony did not know any more about myself the day he stepped out of the professional kitchen, than on the day that he had stepped into his first shift. This is not to say that he learned nothing, Anthony learned plenty. This simply states that he knew nothing of who he was. In that regard, he was lost… Anthony yearned for a meaning, understanding, something he could own as the driving force behind our mission as a business. He found his reason in a community. Here is where we write about our journey. If you’re a Culinarian yourself; that is to say, if you enjoy cooking, creating, eating, learning, or if you are just curious… We Welcome You to Live Great Food.
