From Field to Table...
I am a mother, chef, hunter, artist, and outdoor enthusiast.
Through my passion for food, gardening and the pursuit of wild game, I have cultivated a greater understanding and a deeper appreciation for the natural world.
I grew up around hunters, but It wasn’t until I began hunting that I realized the extreme disconnect that often exists between what we eat and where it comes from. My hunting journey has gifted me a sense of clarity and responsibility to share the connection that exists between the meals we gather together to eat and their origins.
Growing and harvesting my own food has been a process that has been empowering and humbling all at once. I am reminded of how interwoven our lives are with the natural world, and the cyclical nature of life and death.
Chef Victoria ‘Tori’ Loomis, a Louisiana native, found her passion for cooking as a small child at the heels of her father. As a young adult she continued to develop her appreciation for nature and created deep-seeded memories connecting the land or lake, directly to the table. She honors the effort it takes to bring a meal from harvest to the plate, and that respect is evident in every meal she prepares. She has a deep rooted appreciation for bringing people together, to gather, and to #EATGOODFOOD.
As an avid outdoors person and nature enthusiast she practices the concept of taking things in their natural state and making them enjoyable. Tori is passionate about telling authentic stories through food. She believes whole heartedly in the power of influence through food, art and the human connection. Having attended the Louisiana Culinary Institute, Tori has spent the last fifteen years in the restaurant and hospitality industry telling those stories.
