Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and while we love nothing more than to wax poetic about potato possibilities, and test variations on vegetarian side dishes, the events of this past week have helped remind us of the true meaning of the holiday. At Cook Space, we aspire to be a space to bring people together, to invite in a little conversation, a little laughter and a lot of love to a table made richer by the myriad backgrounds and perspectives sitting around it . We hope these priorities are ones that, in the not so distant future, everyone can share in as part of their gatherings, whatever the occasion. Without these ingredients, the feast is flavorless.
