– KEYS SOULCARE
There are days when taking a few hours to plan, purchase, and prepare something delicious for ourselves and those we love feels like the most luxurious thing we could do. And then, there are times when the urge to treat our taste buds to something new and tantalizing seems to hit us out of the blue.
When that happens, we lean into the brilliance of lightworkers who have a special gift for cuisine and communities. Today, we’re sharing three savory sources with you. Read on, fill up, and get inspired to blend their magic into your next mealtime.
Open to anyone for online cooking sessions and meal deliveries throughout many parts of NYC, Connecticut, and New Jersey, this virtual supper club hosts and prepares virtual gatherings celebrating Black and female food-centered creatives. (Psst… highlights include Elle Scott and Chimere Ward of SheChef, Inc., as well as plant-based cooking pro, stylist, and writer Adwoa Kittoe). Order multi-course meals and pre-blended cocktail mixes for one or a few, plus follow their Instagram for behind-the-scenes chef chats, home cooking tips, and more.
Feast on sauces and spice kits inspired by dishes from founders Kim and Vanessa Pham’s fave childhood gatherings and restaurant trips. As if you weren’t already salivating, the duo specifically draws inspiration from Korean, Japanese, and Philipino cuisines. (Just the sound of that makes us hungry!) Search their site for recipes ranging from Thai larb to lemongrass BBQ to Chinese salads. (We love that you can search by dietary needs and preferences, too.)
