When We Cook, We Connect. When We Connect, We Heal.


Gather is an homage to my family, especially my grandparents, who gathered around tables, gardens, fields, milking stalls, and more. Gathering is powerful. It helps us connect and develop a community. Cooking, baking, and eating together create these connections. I hope you will check out my cooking classes, camps and retreats; let's connect and create a collective space to gather and foster community. Email to say hi or if you have questions. You can always find me on Instagram Live the 2nd and 4th Thursdays 7pm ET discussing an ingredient and how to get creative. With love, Melanie
