About the Event
As seasons change so does Honor Meal. Moving forward we will host one Saturday and Sunday Brunch a month. Visit the Honor Meal page register ahead of time.
For the last five months I've been doing Honor Meal weekly by invitation only and NOW it's open for anyone to register.
Honoring the sense to do this new rhythm has been both wonderful and challenging, and it's ultimately leading me to continue doing this more. Now that the weather is perfectly warm and clear, I want to invite you to enjoy an outdoor meal as I cook over the fire.
Feel free to RSVP and share this Private Event Page with others you know, that you feel would honor this meal experience.
Throughout this extended difficult season of loss, change, stress, and isolation we are all navigating, I have been asking myself, "How do I continue to honor the sense?"
Right at the start of 2020, things began to end all around me. When my coffee bar, Middleford Coffee, closed in March, in the midst of that grief I began this process. Running my business didn't mean I "honored the sense". Having to close didn't mean that I failed to "honor the sense". This question was more about how I was continuing to engage with each moment, every person around me, all circumstances and situations I faced. It's not a gauge to tell me whether I'm right or wrong, being good or bad; rather it's a guide that encourages me to be authentic and pursue what makes me uniquely me.
Honor Meal is this opportunity for me: To be authentic in my process as I genuinely cook that others can enjoy. Inviting guests into this experience, to be inspired to honor their true-selves.
This is a night for you to participate in honor.
What: A restaurant experience unlike anything Jonathan has done before.
Where: The Greenwood Estate Back Patio – 3045 Bellinger Lane Medford OR
When: Saturday 5:00 to 8:00PM
How: Come as you are and pay what you want at the end of the meal: Cash App: @jonathanchillis // Venmo: @JonathanCHillis // Cash or check to Jonathan Hillis
Why: The honor system “is an endeavor based on trust, honor, and honesty.” I honor you for coming, being, and offering whatever it is you feel is honoring to provide.
Who: Up to nine total guests.
How to: Regiser online first-come-first-serve RSVPs, using the event page weblink.
Please include in your RSVP ALL specific sensitivities, allergies, or restrictions (like: no eggs, can't have spicy food, or no fish, or no corn, or no butter...) so that I can honor you.
While this is a dinner for you and any guests you wish to have RSVP, there will be a maximum of 9 guests eating. You may be seated at either your own table or a large table that is spaced out for you and your guests to have your own meal together.
A limited amount of cider, beer, wine, and/or whiskey may be chosen and paired for each party.
Jonathan will cook and serve all courses and introduce the meal, as well as close out the night. These evenings are curated for you and your guest to have a night out together, there will be no led group discussions.
Everyone will arrive and be served at the same time, and eat the same meal (unless prior arrangements are made due to food restrictions). Please arrive at 5:00 as all guests will be served simultaneously.
Park in the gravel parking lot off to the right of the house, when you pull in, where other cars will also be parked. From there head to the back of the main house where we'll be gathering.
