Founded in 2012, Sweet Savoring conducts cultural cooking parties and sells assorted homemade jams and jellies. The idea for Sweet Savoring grew from a love of travel, food, tradition, and fond memories of helping out in the kitchen. Our cooking parties is to provide a platform to connect generations with cultural learning, good food, and fun. Participants learn how to cook a three-course meal, get first-hand information about different cultures and countries all while socializing and meeting like-minded people.
