Welcome to Savor + Sage your destination for creativity inspired by a love of good food, entertaining, community, and lifestyle. Savor and Sage will give you a taste of what goes on in my mind and my kitchen, life lessons learned through reflection and experience, and give you some simple tips to make life a little more beautiful.
There’s beauty in community and learning from others is important to cultivating the mind, body, spirit, and home. In addition to sharing my recipes and creative inspirations, I’ll be hooking up with chefs, bloggers, elders, social justice warriors, creatives, and more to provide a glimpse into their process of creating meals to savor, dope art, and sage advice to carry us through life.
I inherited a love of cooking, throwing parties, telling stories, and creating from my Granny Octavia. Savor + Sage is a celebration of Granny and the creativity fueled by my passion for cooking, entertaining, and building a beautiful lifestyle. I love to share how southern cooking goes far beyond what’s typically portrayed in popular culture but instead embodies a delicious mix of simplicity and complexity, texture, and dishes full of flavor with deep roots in the African diaspora. With my tribe hailing from the south and me growing up in the Bay Area, my style of cooking mixes southern flavor with some Bay Area flare. Thank you for going on this journey with me and I hope you savor all the sage life has to offer!
