Welcome

Food is more than a nutritious substance; it identifies us and unites us.

Here at Converse and Cook, we’re building community through food.  Read more about our origin story and how we came to be here.

If you’re interested in knowing what types of programming we run you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @ConverseandCook. We post weekly on Instagram on everything from quick and easy recipes to events that we’re running.

***UPDATE****

Covid19 has changed the way we all engage in everyday life from work to leisure, and even the way we shop for and consume food. Here at Converse and Cook, we’ve always been about creating spaces and places for socialization and human interaction and although we’ll have to hold off doing that in person, this doesn’t mean there isn’t a need for the work that we do. We’re currently hosting classes/socials virtually along with online programming to support you in your culinary journeys while being in quarantine/surviving through this pandemic.
