MY MISSION - read more...
WINE IS FOOD promotes the enjoyment of wine as a food product, and the art of pairing wine with food (with the signature WINE IS FOOD “pairing style”). WINE IS FOOD enforces the virtue of “Eating Wine Responsibly.”
My philosophy-programs allow you to learn about food+wine and also to understand the true nature of wines.
I invite you to become my guest and learn about wines and also to appreciate wines beyond the classic relationship between wine and land. It’s innate for humans, and our duty, to seek to understand the world we live in. And, in this case, it’s my duty and life’s work to guide and help the world understand and re-establish the true nature of wine. It’s my mission to discover and share the true intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of wine. It’s food for our mind, spirit, soul, and body. The true nature of wine isn’t in the bottle but in the sharing of wine. Wine wasn’t created to be drunk but rather eaten and shared like any other food product!! I will teach you a new way of experiencing food and wine and its proper service. It is important to note that as a hospitality professional I understand that terroir, grapes, know how, and excellence in service are essential to fully enjoy and embrace the wine is food culture as a lifestyle. Wine is food main mission is to educate people about eating wine “a model for thoughtful, moderate, food-centric consumption.”

WiNEisFOOD because you smell it, savor it, chew it and swallow it. In order to realize this, an individual has to live it, experience it, feel it, eat it, and on occasion, you’ve got to make it.
When we refer to WINE IS FOOD, we’re talking about wine “the juice” (the agricultural food product). The way wine is made, or the process of wine making, DOES NOT explain the true meaning or nature of wine. Enhancing the wine experience, buying or choosing better wines based on the belief that WiNEisFOOD assists us in creating “the experience we all want and yes. need”. Seeing beyond the juice is the next step in going to the realm of how wine as a food product affects our diet, our relationships and ultimately the way we as social beings interact with each other around the dining table. When wine is eaten at the table it allows us to create, or re-create, a setting that can release the stress or the idea of being busy, bored or simply tired of our everyday activities. When wine is perceived as any other food product, you start thinking and treating wine as a fundamental staple and part of your everyday meal. And yes we can reflect ourselves in our food when we drink or eat wine.

After many years of wondering, learning, investigating and experiencing myself about why every human love gathering around the table. I have found that the truth is in the sharing of food at the table and it’s a real solution to most of problems of modern society. Since we are born the first thing we do is “EAT” Food and Love are directly linked and have strong emotional components. Food and sharing bring encoded messages (within us) revealing at different levels about our social relations in society. We all are connected and need each other to survive. Because all these experiences are encoded in our brain and nervous system as one event (love, nurturing), we have a natural and creative way to recreate this experience every time we share food at the table.
I’m here to guide you to find old wisdom and solutions through this so needed vision in today’s fast-paced lifestyles. I have dissected for you the transformation that happens at the table and as a result our programs and events were born: HEALiNG AT THE TABLE + ROMANCiNG THE TABLE, LOVE MAKiNG THE TABLE and PLAN PREPARE PAiR AND SHARE. Each and every one of our programs and events are a modern way to teach an age-old practice, an under the radar yet proven system that will keep you and your relationships thriving and healthier.
Understanding the power of the healing and sharing at the table and acknowledging that the life of your family depends on the food you feed and the way you serve your loved ones.
JOiN THiS PROGRAMS – Because together, we can create invaluable and pleasurable memories, and exciting and nourishing experiences at your table to bring, spark and heal yourself and your relationships.
When we produce conscious foods (cooking) and experiences as a way of expressing our love, then food reflects that love in healthier bodies and relationships.
ANYONE CAN ROMANCE THE TABLE WITHOUT SPENDING A LIFE-TIME!
