Ursa Major : come to the community table

Who is Ursa Major?

View GalleryURSA MAJOR is the constellation of the bear who holds the Big Dipper in her belly, and I like to imagine that she is distributing soup to the multitudes of stars around her. I’m Manda Beckett, a passionate cook whose mission is to bring you to a community table, to share beautiful nourishing food, cooked from the local bounty. I believe:

  *  Eating beautiful food with others will make you happy
  *  Eating moderately of high quality real food will support your health
  *  Eating locally will support your farmers and artisans
  *  Eating seasonally will reduce your carbon footprint
