About LocaVore

We believe that food is a powerful force for good. We use food to build relationships, educate people about where their food comes from, and promote a more sustainable food system. We do this through food demonstrations, community dinners, and local food events. We also share the mission of LocaVore, which is to promote a more sustainable and equitable food system.

Book A Private Class

Chef Cynthia is available for private cooking classes in your own kitchen! Chef C will plan a menu of your choice using seasonal, local ingredients from farmers in the Inland Northwest. Want to make a vegan or gluten free meal? We can do that, too!

Bringing People Together with Food

Our Vision is to create a network of farmers, chefs, restaurants, and everyday customers to bring our food supply system back to the local community. We want to educate consumers on where their food comes from, introduce them to the farmers that grew it, and provide a platform for local chefs show people how to reduce food waste and cook sustainably.

We highlight local farmers  on every plate

Want to show off your finest veggies or talk about your farming practices? Let’s connect and see how we can work together to share your vision with potential customers.

“Good food is the foundation of genuine happiness.”
 Auguste Escoffier

“When you have the best and tastiest ingredients, you can cook very simply and the food will be extraordinary because it tastes like what it is.”
 Alice Waters

“Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.”
 Jim Davis
