Our Founding Story


Co-founders Erica Weisman and Alice Carli met while studying at the University of Washington in Seattle.

During their studies they ventured to Erica's hometown of Austin, Texas to teach their first cooking camps together. There, they hatched their life-changing plan to begin this business!

Alice received her bachelors degree in Public Health and hosted weekly dinners for colleagues and friends; Erica received her bachelors degree in Urban Planning while working at Seattle's renowned fine-dining restaurant, Canlis as a professional cook.
