Our Community Table series returns this Spring with a new cast of world-class chefs and a seasonal palette of fruits, vegetables, herbs, berries and flowers. By bringing these culinary artists back to the source, we give them an opportunity to connect with new ingredients, find fresh inspiration in our bio region’s historic foodways, and discover the rewards of relationship with the land.
CHEF WHITNEY ARONOFF OF STARSEED KITCHEN
Chef Whitney Aronoff is founder of Starseed Kitchen, a line of organic spice blends, and host of the High Vibration Living Podcast. She works as a Health Supportive Chef based in her hometown of Laguna Beach, California.
After struggling with food allergies and stomach pains with no solutions, Chef Whitney decided to learn how to heal herself with food. She graduated culinary school from The Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City. Chef Whitney aims to invite people back to their kitchens, feeling empowered to make healthy choices for themselves and their loved ones, and to experience high vibration living.
Chef Whitney believes ‘the healthiest meal you can eat is the one you make at home’. In 2020, Chef Whitney launched Starseed Kitchen organic spices, sharing her custom seasonings to support others in making healthy meals at home.
Chef Whitney has been making her spice blends for herself and clients for 20 years wants everyone to enjoy flavorful meals at home that make them feel good. She believes the quality, space, and energy of all the people who touch a product can positively affect the vibration of your food, allowing your body to assimilate all the benefits at a deeper cellular level.
As the expert on high vibration foods, Chef Whitney believes eating is a transfer of energy between our energetic being and the food we eat. She is an advocate for setting intentions that put the power of healing in your own hands by aligning all the layers of “you” through your
physical, emotional, spiritual and mental body.
She shares this philosophy with experts she interviews on the High Vibration Living Podcast. It serves as a source for those who want to learn about nourishing all the layers of you; your physical, emotional, spiritual and mental body, so you can feel your best and live your best life.
Community Table dinners are fixed course, family-style meals. As such, we cannot accommodate every dietary restriction. Please email us with any dietary needs. We will try to accommodate for vegetarian/vegan needs, gluten intolerance, and seafood/shellfish allergies but let us know if there are any specific dietary restrictions for any of your guests. We will do our best to accommodate anything beyond the 3 listed. If there are any life threatening allergies we recommend emailing before purchasing tickets.
Community Table Dinners begin at 6pm, when we’ll start with drinks and a farm tour. We appreciate timeliness as the dinner is coursed intentionally with just one seating. Dinners typically end around 10pm.
We can offer refunds up to one week before the dinner. In the case that you need to cancel last minute, we would be happy to work with you to pass along your tickets to friends or family members.
