Southern hospitality is legendary but we offer nothing better than the lovely evening we just spent with Mary and Jay. Our shared love of people and open hearts made the evening memorable ; OH!…and then there was the food!!! Mary and Jay both went out of their way to host us and we so appreciate all their efforts. Thank you, Mary and Jay!

Our group of seven women with varied lifestyles and ways of eating, were all charmed, delighted, and honestly in food ecstasy with this meal and dining experience. It was like a meditation where all the tastes, textures, smells, and sights of each course sang to you. The hosts are kind, loving, and attentive - and they will create a culinary and community experience that fills your senses, your heart, and your belly. We had Mary and Jay come to our airbnb and it set the stage for an extraordinary week together. We only wished we could have had them there every day.

Mary and Jay were wonderful hosts. Mary's cooking is gourmet and clean. Jay's spiritual and health journeys were incredibly inspiring. My spouse and I felt that the evening could not have been better!

Mary and Jay provided a beautiful experience for the 7 of us . They were very responsive to our questions. They showed up on time to prepare the food. They brought all their own dishes and glassware, table cloths and napkins to make our table as beautiful as the food. They cleaned up everything. The food was very delicious. Mary shared some of her recipes to us. We had a wonderful evening.

This was the highlight of our trip. My husband and I had the best time with Jay and Mary. Just like we were visiting long lost friends. Mary prepared a meal that was out of this world. Every bite provides amazing taste. The food was prepared with lots of love and it showed. This is better than any high end restaurant. Next time we come to Sedona, we will do this again.

Mary and Jay are hands down the most welcoming people in Sedona with a loving home and the tastiest food around! My wife andI come see them each time we are in town...worth the visit!

Mary and Jay are the most lovely people with the farm fresh food and hospitality that make you want to call AirBnB Support and ask for a “6 stars” option! The farm-to-table food prepared by Mary alone is beyond any fine dining cuisine I have experienced. Her skill is unmatched in the kitchen, blending the art of cooking and the science of baking with creativity and compassion that you can taste in every bits. Jay has the rarest of abilities to weave storytelling and listening with genuine interest, warmth, and wisdom. We learned a great deal about food, life, love, and what it means to find true happiness in the world around us. So skip the restaurant at least one night while in Sedona, and book a seat with Mary and Jay!

 Our vegan dinner experience was exquisite! First of all, Jay and Mary’s cozy apartment is just amazing. The table is set so beautifully, you feel like you’re at a five star restaurant! The food was positively scrumptious! My boys , 17 and 19 are vegan from birth and I have been vegan for the last 10 years. The food even passed the palate for my picky seventeen year old! He was practically licking the dish after each course! As amazing as the food was - the company was just as fantastic! You can feel the love between Mary and Jay and we thoroughly enjoyed our lively conversations on a variety of life topics. It’s true - you come as strangers, and leave as friends! We can’t wait to see our hosts again, not only for the amazing food but because they are such quality people who I want in my life! ❤️

 Mary and Jay by far exceeded my expectations. The food was delicious and customized to my needs ( gluten free and vegan ). The presentation was exquisite as well as an ambience of the place. We had wonderful deep conversations that resonated well with all of us. Truly I came as a stranger and left as a friend. This is the experience not to be missed in Sedona. Truly unique and personable.

Amazing experience. Jay and Mary are amazing and very thoughtful hosts. For those that are vegan and coming to Sedona, there are not many quality meal options in town, Jay and Mary far exceed the quality of food you can get from a restaurant in Sedona. I highly recommend booking this experience to those that wish to have amazing food here in Sedona !

 If you are second-guessing booking this experience, take this as your omen: book it now! Mary is a world-class chef who infuses love and excellence into every dish that she creates. Jay is an incredible host and curator, ensuring the evening is tailored to you. Their home is beautiful and calming. Every ingredient used is farm to table harvested, and the layers of flavor that Mary creates are endless. My fiancé and I loved every bite and found the experience to be far superior to any other 5-star dining experience. This will certainly be the future of going out. Book now before the waiting lists gets too long. Here’s to Jay and Mary! We will be booking again soon and giving this experience as gifts to friends and family.

Laura May 2022 Laura Jay and Mary prepared and presented a truly beautiful and tasty dinner for our group of 16 college students. They created and served it all with their secret ingredient of love. They took great care to make sure we were all accommodated and well fed, engaged, and enjoying our experience. It was a magical event for our group and one that we will long remember! Thank You!

Jay and Mary are amazing hosts! The food was incredible, the company even better. They’re so interesting and shared great stories. They’re inspiring, too…life changing. To date, our best Sedona experience. Worth every cent. You won’t be disappointed. Jay says people arrive as strangers and leave friends. So true!

The finest dining ever. Meal presentation superb. Chef Mary and host Jay created the perfect 80th birthday for my wife. All was farm fresh and gluten free. A life experience!

Samantha

Jay & Mary exceeded our expectations! They brought everything to our rental, even the tablecloth and flowers. The food was 5 star. We’ve been to beautiful restaurants and events all over the world and this was one of the most memorable meals any of us had. Local sourced foods and drinks, music, candles…AMAZING

 It is barely possible to put into words an experience of a lifetime that delights every sense, even the 6th sense if you were guided here! We were connected through the Cosmos to Chef Mary and her husband Jay, who we see as the Animator of each course. These two Divine Beings made our trip and stole our stomachs and hearts with a culinary experience of a lifetime. It is my guarantee that if you have come to read this, you must continue to follow the Light and your gut to dine among the real stars. The food? DIVINE! The presentation? IMPECCABLE! The experience? COSMIC! Tailored to our idiosyncrasy, our palette preferences and to our hearts’ desires, Mary and Jay are authentically and transparently present, loving, genuine and gracious. Our experience goes down in our Books of Life as one of the best. Don’t second guess this decision. Jump into this savory, palette pleasing dining experience you’ll never forget. Nothing better than perfection down to every last loving detail! A must!

What an incredible experience!! Jay and Mary are amazingly beautiful people that created a very unique experience. We had a perfectly prepared four course meal that was better than going to a fancy restaurant! The meal was created with organic ingredients and was so fresh and delicious! Not only was the food delicious but the conversation flowed as we learned about each other as we shared stories of our lives. Best 20th anniversary dinner that we could have ever ask for. Thank you both for making it so special.
