Flavor Memories

Thoughts from the chef

Sean Charles McKee  August 2015
 
Like a seed into a fruit, a boy into a man, a girl into a woman, a night time porter into a chef, and a part time host into an events manager... time and energy are the two ingredients needed for accomplishing any aim or purpose.  Those who take their time and energy and devote it to truly mastering their craft are those who can only begin to embrace the peace and happiness this world creates within and around it. Creativity, growth and structure all erupt from the focus of individuals mastering their technique and craft to put forth a greater understanding of health and happiness in this world. Through dedication, perseverance, planning, and good old fashion hard work one can reach any dream & no goal is to out of reach!  Family and Friends around the world need to feel this happiness and taste this fruit prepared with love and from the heart to realize total well being. We strive to bring you the best of our dreams and goals so you may be able reach the best of yours.  Flavor Memories doing it Right!
 

 

 

Paradigm Shift

Noelle Harrigan McKee  August 2015

 

So much to do, so much time? I think now is the moment to change how we approach the day to day. It is time for a paradigm shift... if busy is the new normal then now is the time to embrace and enjoy the new pace of modern life. Not tomorrow, not next week. Right now. We must first make the conscience choice to embrace each moment. By aligning our priorities to make sure that we put our families first, make time for ourselves, for our friends, for conversation, for simple enjoyment, only then will we will know we are fully participating in this new paradigm of loyalty to the simplest and most important elements of humanity. Love. Laughter. Truly GOOD Food. Flavor Memories was founded on these principles. Honoring those closest to us to by sharing food that nourishes every step from production to enjoyment, by paying homage to our environment by being aware of the bounty around us, by respecting each other through thoughtful and ethical participation in our daily interactions. This is how we love. This is how we grow. And now is the time.

Summer Time

Flavor Memories August 2015

 

Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.  Seasonal ingriedents are truly diverse throught the world.  We are extremely fortunate to live in such a lush and bountiful enviornment here in great Pacific Northwest.
