Karen Rogers
Founder and Director

Favorite Foods: I love fresh fruits and vegetables. Pickeled, sautéed, boiled, chopped, raw, cooked – there is no form that I don’t enjoy. And anything with a Moroccan twist.

Andrea Levy
Culinary Director

Favorite FoodsMy biggest weakness is any type of chocolate dessert. But as someone with a plant-based diet I’m also overly satisfied with any plate that includes lots of vegetables, specially fresh, local produce. Im also a sucker for soups and crunchy, fermented or pickled snacks.

Favorite Foods: Anything that gets me out of my comfort zone – from live shrimp in Copenhagen to balut in the Philippines. Plus, you can never go wrong with Thai.

Favorite Foods: Growing up, I spent hours in the kitchen as my grandma cooked Indian food. She is an important reason why I came to believe in food’s healing potential. Indian dishes that remind me of her instantly make me feel at home— chai tea, dal (spicy lentil soup), naan (flatbread), and spices like cardamom, cloves, turmeric, and ginger. I also have a huge sweet tooth and can’t say no to ice cream!

Favorite foods:  My favorite foods are comfort foods:  homemade macaroni and cheese, fresh-baked bread, and cake!!  There is also nothing better than a good salad with veggies fresh from my own backyard!!  I love gardening and it is a comfort to know that the vegetables that I serve my family are grown sustainably right from our own yard.  

Diane Paquette
HR and Office Manager

Favorite Foods: Growing up in Maine, my favorite food has to be lobster! We’d have a huge family clambake every summer and it was a rite of passage as you grew older on learning how to eat a lobster. I also have a passion for baking so during my free time, you’ll most likely find me in the kitchen!
