To Make Complete: A Co-Making Supper

FESTIVE is a celebration of what is simple and good. 

A recognition that beauty with utility are the foundations of a limitless and content life.

On the Friday evening before FESTIVE, we will be co-making a consommé, a clear soup made from richly flavored stock.

Its etymology is related both to “consummate” and to “consume” and translates simply as, “to make complete.” 

This dinner seeks to explore the idea of taking past marketplaces of consumerism and translating them into marketplaces for community.


We will be cooking with author and chef Rachael Mamane (Mastering Stocks and Broths, published by Chelsea Green)

Rachael brings a rich personal history to the cooking experience, influenced by a lost heritage and guided by a science degree.

We invite you to join us at 6 p.m. in making consommé and sharing a lively meal. 

Our only ask is that you bring a dish for sharing; please make a dish that embodies community to you.
