To say we love food is like is like saying the Grand Canyon is a nice tourist spot or that all the stars in the night sky are pretty neat.
To us food is not just the four basic food groups, though we like those a lot. We mean all that food represents. It’s more than taste, calories, or sustenance. It’s what sitting down and communing with others represents – the somewhat lost art of what it means to get together with others.
Breaking bread together allows us to get down to the nitty-gritty, around our dinner table. We sit, relax, engage, pour your heart out, become authentic and vulnerable, and usually it’s mutually pleasurable. It is a way we can show love and care about people, when gifts and sometimes words are uncomfortable. It says “I care about you” without having to come up with the right words. It’s a way to bring people together, to listen, to nourish, and then when the night is over, feeling refreshed both physically and emotionally.
Food, and more accurately sharing food, has a way of bringing down walls, because you’re less guarded and more trusting when sharing a meal. All of us at South Creek want each of you to experience our Love of Food. For a brief moment in time when you are our guests, we want you to feel like family as we break bread together, and as you break bread with family and friends.
