MEGUMI ~an informal,cross-cultural gathering celebrating creative inspiration in spring’s offering
The chill of winter is a necessary time for dormancy and turning inward, but the inevitable warmth of spring highlights the incredible blessings that nature bestows. The blooms, sunshine, and fresh vegetables all inspire our own creativity and sense of appreciation.
The Japanese relationship to food and eating extends beyond the contents of the plate. For many, meals include taking in the essence of the Spirits and the coming of spring brings new opportunities for connection.
Join us in enjoying:
+ Nature’s Creative Blessings
— Fresh, local Kyoto bamboo shoots
— Sansei–wild mountain vegetables–harvested by a self-sufficient family living in the mountains
— Sake from a local producer
— Spontaneous, ingredient-centered menu by a “blooming” chef
+ Blessings of Human Wisdom
— Artisan talk on the blessings of craftsmanship history
— +++ Guest Speaker: Shuji Nakagawa, master wood bucket maker
— Craft exhibit featuring natural materials like wood and bamboo
— Conversation with like-minded guests and artisans about our natural and creative blessings
We hope our cozy gathering will inspire us all to live with appreciation and admiration for the natural world.
