If you live to eat, cook, bake or learn about food, you know how fascinating it can be. What if you could make more of your love of things culinary? Food information is everywhere —television, blogs, and social media.

Amava Transitions: Changing Focus to Wine and Food!
“Pick something that you would do for free and give it everything that you’ve got. That’s what we did. We had a clear idea of the world we wanted to live and work in and just went for it without a thought that it wasn’t going to happen.”
Check out this fascinating story of a former radio DJ who made a place for himself in the world of wine.
“I started baking and giving cakes to friends and neighbors for free. It was a way to feel complete. My kids were getting older and I had more time. I didn’t know much about social media but someone told me to open an Instagram account to show my cakes, so I did. That’s how I started.”

Millie & Boo Talk Dinner Parties
Check in with our inter-generational friends as they discuss how to plan a dinner party:
Millie: Boo, I’ve been meaning to ask you some dinner party questions. I’m kinda freaking out about having 8 human beings to feed at once, but that’s what I’m doing next weekend.
Boo: Awww, very honored that you’d turn to me. I know how you love your meal kits….
Millie: Alright, alright. I know how you feel about them. They’re overpriced, the packaging, blah, blah. But this time, I’m doing it your way. I will shop, cook, bake, serve and clean up. A real meal. But I need some ideas.
Boo: Welcome to my world, friend. Ok, first question. Any special diets?
