Becky Rosenthal

Becky Rosenthal has a confession to make. Without shame she romanticizes her grandmother's era. Perhaps she's a victim of Golden Age thinking, but she believes her grandma could teach us a few things about hosting a party, warming up a room, welcoming strangers, cooking for them and striking up a conversation. We could all benefit from sitting down around a great meal and simply enjoying our families and friends more often. Enter Vintage Mixer. She originally started Vintage Mixer to share lessons and recipes learned from Grandma Grace and to tell stories of world travel. The heart of Vintage Mixer is about a meal, a table and a conversation contrasted with calendars that fill as quickly as we allow. Sadly, hosting and hospitality rarely make it on our schedule anymore. It feels like an after-thought, like something we do if we can't figure out what else to do or, worse, we do it half-heartedly valuing nothing more than simply getting it over with. It's time to gather around a table again with a meaningful meal and get to know each other. Vintage Mixer provides recipes, atmosphere and the art valuing family, friends and strangers by making incredible food paired with good drink in a room that encourages guests to stay as long as they'd like and leave more refreshed than when they arrived. Becky does all of this in Salt Lake City, Utah where she lives with her husband and singer/songwriter Josh Rosenthal and their hopelessly needy Portuguese Waterdog, Henry. Becky and Josh are the owner/operators of Grace Food Group, responsible for Vintage Mixer, SLCfoodie and SLCmixers.

Okay, I will face the facts that not everyone likes Brussels Sprouts, but I do know that most everyone loves popcorn. One of the first times I encountered a dish of Brussels Sprouts that I actually enjoyed (and even loved) was from a chef who described them as "tasting like popcorn."

What's not to like about that?

The chef ...
