This is Lewis and Priscilla, authors of The Great Life Cookbook: Whole Food, Vegan, Gluten-Free Meals for Large Gatherings. Welcome to our blog!

We are all influenced by the human desire to be of service to others. We have found a wonderful vehicle for this through providing a weekly meal for our friends, family and community. Every Friday for the past 18 years, we have hosted a gathering in our home.

We are now ready to share what we have learned. Our intention is to support you in creating community through offering delicious whole food, plant-based meals with your friends and family.

Here are some of the topics we plan to discuss:

  • planning a larger meal and coordinating the timing
  • inspirational combinations of colors and flavors
  • nutrition and a plant-based diet
  • share about the love of, for, and from community
  • creating a family friendly atmosphere
  • clear communication on reservations
  • accommodating food allergies
  • recipes and cooking techniques
  • answer your questions
