We love delicious things, gorgeous design, and meaningful experiences. Through consulting and events we explore the flavors, pairings and community, that start with breaking bread together. Our approach is built on collaboration with talented partners and creative friends. Great food, beer, wine and cannabis is editorial and expresses a point of view - we help you find and express that viewpoint.

We are named for the fava bean

Fava beans require a two-step shelling process, making them incredibly labor intensive and time consuming to prep — but their alluring flavor is always worth it.
