About Us, United In Food

There is so much we could write about for UnitedInFood™. We will start first by sharing with you that it is a dream come true for two cousins, Pepper Pasqua and Pixie Millet. Since we are cousins, our love of all things food-related food is in our DNA. We are passionate about food in all of its infinite variety, and every day we are excited to learn more! We believe in uniting one another, and that it is better to build upon rather than to tear down. We believe that we are more united than divided. We know on a practical and day-to-day level that food is a way to achieve human connections and understanding.

Every day in cooking we experience how food is a path for families, friends, communities and the world to connect. Experiencing different cuisines, others’ food preferences and sharing meals with others is a key to unlocking doors of understanding with each other. When enjoying a delicious homemade chocolate soufflé, how can one not be just a bit more open to listening to one’s table mate’s point of view? As we learn about and experience other’s food choices, how can we but not know, and more importantly, understand each other better?

Our mission in UnitedInFood™ is to bring awareness to and promote the buy local, sustainable food growing practices and farm-to-table movements in as many ways as possible. We seek to connect consumers with food growers, food producers and food resources in their communities and thereby strengthening those ties and connections. We see these as more ways that we can be united in food.
