Food is Fun and So Are We

Even when the world is serious, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.  We enjoy the fun things in life – sharing silly food puns and taking the occasional moment to ponder what cockroach milk might taste like.  And we’re super thankful to be working in the wonderful, wacky, and endlessly entertaining world of food.
