What does Rebecca treasure most? Time with her family around the dining table.
While they're at the table together, she finds meals inspire conversation, ideas, and exchanges of creativity. Good things happen. Connections are made. The discussion may be about school or work that day, but it may also be about a local campaign, an ingredient used to make the meal, or nothing at all, just some silly joke that makes everyone laugh.
Rebecca has focused her love for entertaining, people and food at The Upstate Table. Head there for recipes, to learn about her events, and much more.
