Flavor Foundations

Fellow Celebrators of Co-operation,

You are invited to revel together at a special, virtual Flavor Foundations in celebration of CCMA 2021. Please join Mark Mulcahy and Samuel Vandegrift on Thursday, 10 June from 6 – 8pm Central time for an evening where we eat, drink, and pause to indulge our senses. Sign up now even if you are unsure you can attend, and if you can make it, great!

To our collective table we invited strawberries, peas, and bubbly. While you are strongly encouraged to bring these items in particular, your presence alone makes the evening.  We invite you to join us as you are with what you have. 

Come early and stay late. Please bring your favorite memories from CCMA. We cannot wait to share joy together. 

Here is how we describe what to expect: Flavor Foundations is a 120 minute experience with three consumables as pillars to dive into the self while sparking connection with others sharing the table. We provide a supply list ahead of time for people to forage. After some grounding, we take people through the ingredients and senses in turn. Guests sipped Albariño, kombucha, and beet shrub; nibbled raw okra, slurped peaches, and devoured roasted turnips; and came as they pleased with attire from ties to feather boas, jammies, and aprons. Folx zoom in from the safety and comfort of their living room, den, kitchen, front porch, car, and pool. We bring people into a world of the senses and guide them to deeper understanding of themselves and those they share our table with.

Sign Up Now!

Forever Yours in Exploration, 

Mark & Samuel

Some things people said about our Flavor Foundations:

“I usually leave my camera off for Zoom events to make leaving easy once I get bored, but tonight’s Flavor Foundations was so much fun that I’m still here half an hour past time with my camera on.”

Shawna Rodgers

“Never before have I made an entire meal out of: 1) peaches, green beans dressed simply with EVOO, s/p/g, and rose, or 2) roasted okra, muskmelon and prosciutto, and Albariño.  Thanks to the two of you for boiling things down to the basics!”

Liz Ash

“Who knew a virtual tasting series could be so much fun? Not me until I participated in [Mark Mulcahy] and Sam Vandegrift’s "Flavor Foundations" webinars this summer. I am no longer fearful of okra, discovered Albariño wine, and learned that you LOVE peaches. The chance to engage all our our senses and play so freely with food and wine was truly a pleasure. Thank you!”
