About

  • Do you believe it's possible for healthy food to be satisfying, accessible and practical for you and your family?
     
  • Do you want a proven source for ALL the Real Food items you need In one location?
     
  • Do you believe a group of people who care can come together and make this happen?

If you Believe Real Food Builds Real Health then you already believe in the fundamental principles of this project. 

It's Time to Build On What We've Already Started.

It's Time To Build The Real Food Culture Kitchen!

Most current laws and regulations revolve around facilitating factory farming and corporate food processors while hindering the growth of independent, grass-roots movements like ours.

Pasadena City Regulations actually allow a kitchen to be built for sharing and still conform to health code.

We are fortunate to have this option right here in our community. Let's Make The Most of It!

WE have to make it happen. It's time to come together on this. Just imagine what we can accomplish!!

LOVE YOU CAN TASTE!

As Culture Club 101 and Real Food Devotee come together with YOU in this project, we will build and professionally equip a multi faceted environment and model that will serve as a hub and standard for any and all community kitchens devoted to the Culture of Real Food, vibrant health, and a sustainably higher quality of life.

The way KickStarter works is, if we do not reach our $100,000 funding goal, we won't get any of the money pledged. 

We are looking to raise at least $100,000 but we realize the cost will be even greater. Still, we know the price of NOT taking this project on would be the loss of such a wonderful community asset. 

This is our proposal and opportunity; a cause we can all get behind to, not only save, but expand the scope of what Culture Club 101 and The Real Food Devotee have already built over the last 5 years. 

This Project Is To Build The Real Food Culture Kitchen.

  • We will begin with this fully equipped commercial kitchen

  • A Training Facility and Model for Real Food Entrepreneurs everywhere

  • Your One Stop Retail Market for Real, Nutrient Dense Food, education and traditional preparation techniques.

Let's Get Started!

NOW is the moment to spark our REAL FOOD REVOLUTION!

We want to build the "Real Food Culture Kitchen" as a community based resource for, as the name implies, Real Food and the Real Food Culture that is so important to Natural Health and Vitality. It's time to stand-up for your right to Real Food and Real Health.

My name is Dr. Volmert. I'm an Osteopathic Family Physician. 

In my practice I use nutrient dense foods to help patients recover from all kinds of physical and emotional issues.

I have known Elaina and Monica for number of years and Culture Club 101 and the Real Food Devotee have become an integral part of my practice. 

Over the years my patients have been able to turn to both Elaina and Monica for nutrient dense, healing foods. In addition they have been a reliable source of education so that my patients can learn how to prepare healing food for themselves. Their services have helped provide a path to recovery. 

 Without Elaina and Monica, it would've been a much more difficult task for both myself and my patients. I am so happy to hear that they have joined forces and think that this will be even more beneficial for my patients and anyone else who is seeking better life and better nutrition. I myself have found many an instance with Elaina and Monica in which I have learned more about nutrition and how to better prepare my food so I might benefit from it even more. 

I feel so blessed to have them as a resource for not only my patients but myself as well. Their food makes my body sing with joy. Thank you so much Elaina and Monica for enriching my life and the life of my patients and I wish you the best of luck. You deserve this and so much more!!

Well then, we NEED to Raise AT LEAST $100,000

We CAN do this together, this is what the essence of crowd-funding is all about.

 Lilakoi Moon --" I am so grateful to have the option to receive food made with clean, nutrient rich ingredients and integrity. 

As a busy mom, I cherish spending time with my family. Real Food Devotee is just one of the ways I create more time for what is important in this life. 

There are so many levels of generosity in this food. The generosity of farmers who grow ingredients with sound environmental stewardship, the generosity of love, attention to taste & nutrient content when Real Food Devotee transforms ingredients into a meal and the generosity of delivery to our door. 

I'm just glad I live in a world where Real Food Devotee's Flour-less Salted Chocolate Cookies exist!

Another moment spent with family instead of spent on the road to a store. Real Food Devotee brings nourishing home-cooking to me and my family. And on the days when I have fed kids, husband and pets and forgotten myself, I love to find a little something in the freezer specially made for me. It is a gift."

____________________

Selma Blair -- "I am writing to express my gratitude for all Monica Ford has done and continues to do for me and my son, and friends of mine as well.  

I have struggled with chronic pain for years, and my homeopathic dentist is the one who told me about Monica and Real Food Devotee in the hope that her nutritious food could aid my body in healing.  It has.  And as life, and the processed foods I have stubbornly refused to totally give up, along with stress (and more Life) have continually challenged my health, Monica has been there to help me heal.

As I type this, my son is recovering from a serious stomach bug.  He couldn't keep anything down.  Nothing.  And then I remembered The bone broth in the refrigerator that Real Food Devotee has been lovingly making for me to heal my own Leaky Gut Syndrome.  Without a doubt, this bone broth has kept Arthur out of the hospital due to dehydration today.  It is delicious, and he can eat it with every meal as the gelatin aids in digestion.  And he loves it!

As for this insufferable leaky gut, I have many factors that need to be altered in my life, but I am confident that with the aid of Monica's fermented foods, bone broths and probiotics that she lovingly creates, I will heal and continue to thrive.   Thank you.  Selma Blair  and Arthur Saintj"

 About Culture Club 101

A member supported culinary club that was conceived in October of 2008.  

Inspired by the book 'Nourishing Traditions'  by Sally Fallon, founder of the The Weston A. Price Foundation,  Culture Club 101 answered the need and desire for these 'all-but-forgotten' foods and traditional preparation techniques and methods.

Culture Club 101 and The Real Food Devotee have proven themselves to be dependable, resourceful and authentic practitioners of nutrient dense food preparation, education and provision.

Culture Club 101 has remained committed to bringing back awareness and the practice of the food traditions so beneficial to human health and vitality. 

Culture Club 101 offers classes and hand’s-on workshops to members to assist them in gaining confidence, particularly in the art of fermentation.

We also offer internships and mentoring, present lectures and films for education and inspiration as well and organize community events such as The Real Food Symposium" and member parties & gatherings to delight, enlighten and "feed" the hunger for this way of life.

Since food is such an intrinsic part of who we are, delicious nutrient dense foods are the focus of all who come to Culture Club 101, be it in our retail store, our classes, workshops or events. Check us out and "like" us on Facebook.

Our motto is, and always will be: “It’s All About the Food!"

____________________

Real Food Devotee is happy to be a resource and support for Health Practitioners who understand that a nutrient dense diet is an integral part of healing and an important building block for lasting health and quality of life.

Nico Turner -- Real Food Devotee has changed my life completely. For years, I've had low energy, moodiness, a smoking habit and a general feeling of not being healthy. Within one week of eating from the Real Food Devotee menu and I was able to quit smoking completely, start hiking every day at 6am, and I feel incredible. Real Food Devotee is a real life saver. 

Raised in a family whose love of food infused every meal, Monica brings this same passion and appreciation to you in all her Real Food Devotee products, her classes and private coaching in traditional food preparation (such as Yogurt, Kombucha, Lacto-Fermented Sodas, Sauerkraut and Kimchee) and through her methods for sourcing food locally, wholesome home cooking and sustainable wellness.

Monica's Mantra? Get Real. Be Well.

 Molly Chester, Traditional Foods Chef, Farmer and author of "Back to Butter"

Having known Monica Ford and her work within the Traditional Foods Movement for the last several years, I can vouch for the fact that she is the real deal!  She lives this information, and she has witnessed the renewed health this lifestyle has brought to her clients.  As a Traditional Foods Chef, Farmer and author of Back to Butter: A Traditional Foods Cookbook, I, too, have watched the magic of nutrient-dense food change lives, and I hope you'll support Monica in her quest to spread the good news of these foods and techniques.

Jocelyn Hsu -- "Monica & Real Food Devotee make the most delicious and nutritious foods available. We used to be sickly and exhausted people, but we fixed it by switching our diets to organic and traditionally prepared foods.  

The switch meant too many hours in the kitchen and barely anyone offers this delicious and nutrient-dense food for sale.  Then came Monica & Real Food Devotee to the rescue! Monica carefully sources and skillfully prepares the foods exactly to our standards, creating yummies better than we could create in our own kitchen."

Rene Amador -- "After a long day of work, sometimes you just want to be able to open the fridge and have real food to devour. Real Food Devotee makes that happen without us spending hours in the kitchen."

 JoAnn Ortiz -- "I believe in this project... I grew up on real food. Only difference is, we just called it food - and still do in my house.

It amazes me how far out of touch many people have become with their own bodies and the fact that food is the key to better health - not pills (fast fixes) and fast foods. 

Having a place to go where there is wholesome food available and like minded people to share & learn with will be amazing. A "little" big step in the right direction. I look forward to this project taking flight."

Mona Dinari, Classical Acupuncture Clinic -- "I support Real FoodDevotee. I have been ordering the most nutritional and healthy food items from Monica/Real food Devotee for the past few years. Her love and vast knowledge of nutrition can be tasted in all the food items. 

I have been recommending her to my patients and they have been benefiting so much from her and their health does improve once they start consuming these healthy items on a daily basis. I hope that Real food Devotee can expand and be able to serve more people because we all deserve to eat well. Thank you so much."

Katie Falbo, founder of the Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival --

" I support Real Food because it saved my health and I believe that making real food accessible to the masses, as Monica Ford and Elaina Luther do with their amazing traditionally prepared cuisine, is ESSENTIAL for the good health of us all. "

Risks and challenges

This is a big step.

It is the realization of the trust in the people and organizations you have already come to know.

Culture Club 101 and Real Food Devotee have proven themselves to be dependable, resourceful and authentic practitioners of nutrient dense food preparation, education and provision.

You already know and believe in the wholesome goodness of Real Food Culture and we already know and believe in the Real Goodness of people like you!

We all understand that our greatest RISK would be in NOT building the 'Real Food Culture Kitchen'.

We have come too far and now is the time to soar over the hurdles we've encountered and establish, once and for all, a solid, permanent, Real Food Culture Kitchen right here in our community.

We'll need to find the appropriate space, accessible, accommodating and able to facilitate our continued expansion.

We'll need to build out the space, to code and regulation to enjoy the full support of the opportunities Pasadena affords us.

We will need an even larger and more capable retail space to offer even more wonderful products.

We'll need to create an adaptable environment for classes and workshops to continue our education programs devoted to sourcing, preparing and enjoying all the benefits of nutrient dense real food.

We'll need to install and expand our loaning library and learning center.

We'll need to create an environment for kitchen space that can be shared and rented to other emerging Real Food Entrepreneurs as part of a community expansion effort and mentoring program.

We'll look forward to a Cafe/Tasting Room and a vibrant Community Center that revolves around the Natural Health and Vitality of these Nourishing Traditions.
