Who We Are

The Better Life Food Story

My lifelong passion for cooking started at a small gourmet bakery and cafe in the little village of Newton Upper Falls, MA.  Twenty+ years later, with the help of family and friends, I branched out to be able to share with others what I've learned - that through better food, you live a better life.

We're no longer in the Upper Falls but we're still in Newton with a beautiful new kitchen (closer to the Mass Pike and Boston!) and we're excited about what the future holds.

As I see it, "Better Food" means a lot of things: better tasting, better ingredients, better presentation.   Our goal is to return to a time when food and friends and family were synonymous with life and that made life better. 

Because it's all about "Better food for a better life."
