Who is Ursa Major?
URSA MAJOR is the constellation of the bear who holds the Big Dipper in her belly, and I like to imagine that she is distributing soup to the multitudes of stars around her. I’m Manda Beckett, a passionate cook whose mission is to bring you to a community table, to share beautiful nourishing food, cooked from the local bounty. I believe:* Eating beautiful food with others will make you happy
* Eating moderately of high quality real food will support your health
* Eating locally will support your farmers and artisans
* Eating seasonally will reduce your carbon footprint
