"I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours" -Henry David Thoreau

Emily Crumpacker - Food Extraordinaire

"I feel so bad for the kids who are struggling to find out what their passion is. You don't have to know what your passion is; if something makes you curious, then do that!" 

Emily has built a career on curiosity. It started by selling Christmas trees and has taken her all over the world, from Morocco as Leonardo DiCaprio's personal chef to working in France with Julia Child. She’s now one of the preeminent voices on food in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Ultimately, though, she’s just a woman who loves to learn.
