When the pandemic began in March 2020, Mallory had just finished working at a restaurant and was eager to start something of her own. Her company, , was born out of a passion for local food and a need for a creative outlet.

"I started by cooking for friends, moving on to catering small events and selling at the East Nashville Farmers Market. I grew along the way, cooking at Bloomsbury Farm and doing more and more events. The amazing group of local farmers, producers, fellow market vendors made me feel supported and gave me a sense of community in Nashville. 2 years later, I have moved to Sewanee and am building my business on the mountain! I have loved getting involved with the South Cumberland Farmers Market, meeting farmers on the plateau and building community here. I hope to be able to foster connections and bring more local food to studentS, alums, and visitors."
