Ennake: Meaning Through Wild Foods

Ennake (pronounced: en-nock-key) is Muskogee for "cherished relatives", acknowledging that all living beings are connected.

Join this immersive food pop-up experience with 10 courses of thought-provoking wild foraged foods. 

This meal will infuse a deep sense of meaning and connection to the food you eat, how it is sourced, and intimacy to the nature surrounding us.

Areas of Focus

Wild Foods

There are edible foods of incredible nutritional and culinary value all around us. Broadening our horizons on what is edible (and how tasty it can be!) changes the way we perceive the world around us.

Active Participation

Each participant should expect to attend as an active participant. We have chefs preparing a delicious menu AND we play a role in co-creating our food together.


There are 5 basic flavor profiles in the culinary world: sweet, savory, sour, bitter, and umami. We are introducing a 6th profile: meaning. This comes from connection, caring, and active participation.
