They also offer tastings! If you’ve never been there – WHAT are you waiting for??

Happy Belly is the new culinary creation of 4 local chefs whose diverse backgrounds, experiences, travels and charming personalities combine to help Gather Together, Eat Well.  They will cater your next event, provide a cooking lesson in your home, be your personal chef(s) or offer a bit of kitchen coaching (www.happybellychefs.com).
