Through the Looking Glass

liz_the_curated_feast

As Lewis Carroll wrote in Alice in Wonderland: “Begin at the beginning, go on till you come to the end: then stop.”

Today, I am announcing an ending:

After much consideration, I have decided that this next feast (next weekend!) will be my last public feast—definitely for the year, but possibly forever. As a storyteller, I realize that I have reached a stage in my own growth where producing these complex events is no longer something I am genuinely compelled to do—certainly not on a regular basis, at least. I LOVE telling stories, writing, photographing, and working on creative projects, but the events space no longer calls to me like it used to. After three years of feasts, I am so proud of the events I’ve hosted with some incredibly talented collaborators.

As a historian and storyteller, I live and breathe the wondrous tales of the world, and I can’t imagine that changing any time soon. Stories are so deeply a part of our DNA, but those tales have beginnings, middles, and endings. And while the creation of elaborate and curated meals — weaving music, story, setting, and food — has been a dream come true in so many ways, it is time to make this change.

For this next feast, as we venture Through the Looking Glass we have an exceptional set of stories and courses planned with @aroweculinary and @hiveandhum, so if you’ve been wanting to sit at the table, please do so! (Link for tickets in bio). Regardless, thank you ALL for your support through this journey. I’m excited to keep you involved in what’s next!
