The food we eat is an important part of who we are, and is an integral part of our ethos. In Sou-gour-ganic cooking, we pay attention to every detail of the food process. We do this by:

·        Hand-picking of all local & organic produce and ingredients

·        Cooking in cast iron pots & pans or other alternative equipment that retain flavor and fortify nutrients

·        Serving the meals in the most upscale yet retro-holistic style dining atmosphere in order to foster values of connections to the universe which yields our food source.  We also adhere to food sovereignty, the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods and for the peoples right to define their own food and agriculture systems. Thus, one can enjoy a healthy driven nutrient packed meal all grown and harvested with in a 25 mile radius of our urban inner-city community.

Sou-gour-ganic’s atmosphere is designed to empower community members to learn about nutrition, have a healthy attitude towards food, and  develop an awareness and respect for their bodies. The nutritional options available to community members are crucial to their growth and development as a community, as the food they eat plays a key role in their ability to grow and flourish as a community. We believe its important for a community and it’s children to understand that food decisions are health decisions.

Our recipes are carefully crafted and designed to create a balanced meal with essential vitamins and minerals accessible from whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, complex carbohydrates, high quality lean protein and healthy fats usually sourced locally from an urban/inner-city community. All of our meals are prepared fresh on site, from scratch, on a daily basis by our in-house urban holistic nutritional farm-to-table chef, creator of a style of cooking known as Sou-gour-ganic (soul, gourmet, organic). We strive for our guests to experience “urban elegance” a new dining experience inspired by locovorism, (a movement  in which a community procures its food with in a 25 mile radius.) And orchestrated meals with a soul food base infused with various international cultural influences and various cooking techniques that promote health and wellness so that food maintains its nutritional value.

Our chef strives to instill healthy eating habits in order to perpetuate a holistic lifestyle that will eventually carry a community into lasting wellness.
