Forage Family Meal

Forage is one of my favorite food companies--they deliver the ingredients to a delicious restaurant-inspired meal that can be made in under 20 minutes. You can read more about them here.

A few weeks ago, they invited my friend Meredith and me had dinner with the Forage team. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Forage and the cool stuff they are up to!

We met at their office, a commercial kitchen space in Dogpatch. We started the evening with drinks and a tour, including seeing all of the space they have for storing ingredients...so impressive!

After a tour, Executive Chef Stephen Beaumier (formerly of Cyrus, Quince, and Noma) walked through how Forage chooses meals and preps ingredients for all of their customers. I was so impressed by the quality of the meals--both in ingredients and in creativity.

Then, we split up into groups of four, and got to work cooking! Each group of 4 prepared a different Forage menu item. My group was in charge of vegetable ash carbonara.

When each of us wrapped up, we gathered around the table with each group's dish--potatoes stuffed with dried fruit and nuts covered in a delicious Indian sauce (thanks to DOSA), smoked soba noodles, delicious flatbread, and our vegetable ash carbonara.

We dug in to the delicious food, and then jumped into a great conversation about food. It was a wonderful night!
