Community Through Cooking
Passion - Creativity -Playfulness
Built on the premise of creating community through the way we approach food, I look to create offerings that will help you slow down, enjoy the moment, indulge, and rejuvenate.
My name is Regina (Ra-hee-nah). On the east coast people have always called me Reg, and here on the west coast you've probably met me as Reggie.
I'm a restaurant addict. I've been obsessed with restaurants since I was six years old & our server made caesar salad table side. I have been in love ever since.
I am inspired constantly by my love of traveling & all the beautiful people & cultures I've had the pleasure of sharing the table with, nature, art and the natural bounty that the beautiful PNW has to offer. Many of my creations have Filipino & global influences, since it's something near and dear to my heart. You won't find any artificial colors, or sweeteners in my work although I do pride myself on getting creative and finding ways to infuse rich colors naturally. I have a decidedly modern boho vibe going for me, and many of my treats are infused with a mixture of spices, teas & Ayurvedic/healthful infusions. I concentrate on using high quality always, and organic whenever possible. I feel strongly about connecting with nature, and making sure our planet is a place our children will want to inherit, so I made it one of my business' core values to try and cut down as much single use plastic in my operation as possible, as well as game-planning for a majority usage of healthy power sources in my shoppe like a completely electrical driven kitchen & hopefully later solar.
It's my joy to showcase local products and purveyors as much as I can. I am endlessly curious, and adore testing new flavors, techniques, and trying my hand at new endeavors. Bring me your inspiration & ideas, and let us work together to create something beautiful. It is my sincere pleasure to bring a piece of my artistic vision to your table.
On a personal note: I've been known to break into song & dance without reason. I'm generally curious, and like to learn new things. I adore art, music, and every once in a while, a solid trashy romance novel or the newest YA craze. I guess you could call me a bookworm. I am a collector of crystals. (I'm actually insane about crystals... If you like crystals, we should be friends!) I'm an adventure seeker though it's harder now to be spontaneous. I'm a stressed out mother to two crazy unique & weird tiny humans as well as two hilarious fur babies, and married to one exceptional dude, who we all refer to as Chad the rad dad. We met in culinary school (where I so graciously offered to help him through his baking course - he denies this to this day, and insists I was just in his way). If you want some serious knee slapping entertainment all you have to do is put us in a kitchen together and ask us a simple question on how to do something. We laugh and dance together almost every day, and he lets me get my way most of the time (probably too much) so I feel like he's a keeper.
I appreciate you stopping by and supporting my small business. It can be terrifying chasing your dreams, so your support & ongoing belief mean the world to me. Thank you.
