Respect, Taste & Nutrition
"My simple inspiration is to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the bounty of nature. Seasonal ingredients captured at their peak of flavor and nutrition, in contrasting and accentuating collisions of flavors inspire the senses to nourish both mind and body and engrave warm memories for years to come. “We are what we eat”, may reflect more than mere physical properties alone. The simultaneous energizing of all our senses of vision, smell, touch, hearing, taste and umami may be a direct path to our soul and inner well being. Cooking applies my unique perspective of nature’s flavor, biological and nutritional components to elevate the taste and align the nutrition to a delicious nourishing harmony." Jimmy Schmidt

If you know us (the Heberlein family) from the Lansing area, you know our involvement with the Greater Lansing Food Bank and the Empty Plate Dinner. Now that we are shifting our world north, to the Grand Traverse area, we are finding ways to help out right here, in our new back yard. In this spirit, part of our ticket proceeds will go directly to Food Rescue of Northwestern Michigan!
"No one should ever have to choose between paying a utility bill and eating healthy food. In the 5-county area, Food Rescue picks up an average of 6,500 pounds of nutritious food and delivers it same day and free of charge to 50 area pantries and meal sites. Food waste and hunger are simultaneously reduced through the efforts of Food Rescue thanks to the generosity of many donors. We have rescued more than 10 million pounds of food since our founding 10 years ago and more importantly, provided nutrient dense food to tens of thousands of visitors to area pantries each year. "
