Roots in the Clouds was born out of the idea that being "rooted" isn't about settling down in any one place - it's about embracing our journey and feeling connected to where we are at a given moment. Whether we're in a city halfway around the world or sharing a meal with friends at a local hole in the wall restaurant, being present as new experiences unfold around us, opens us up to fresh perspectives, and exposes us to adventures beyond our wildest imagination. The people we meet, the food we eat, the lands we explore, and the customs and traditions we experience, become sources of inspiration, and feed our imaginations, our souls, and of course, our bellies! Roots in the Clouds curates the best of the global culinary world through words and images about food, a common language that connects us to one another.
While many of us enjoy the pleasures of dining out and don't worry about where our next meal will come from, there are millions of people around the world, many of them children, who don't have this same luxury. At Roots in the Clouds we consider it a privilege to feed others and since we can't be everywhere cooking for the masses, we try do our part by donating a portion of all proceeds collected on this site to charities working to combat hunger and food insecurity around the globe.

Later this year, Roots in the Clouds will launch Global Table, a collection of opportunities to connect over food, including our Passport Series, Supper Club, and Group Cooking Classes.
