About Me

Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 8.33.19 AMMy name is Hilary, and I am the founder of Cocoa Bean, The Vegetable. I hope you enjoy my fruitful food stories and recipes as I explore and get creative in the kitchen.

My approach to eating is pretty simple: make delicious and beautiful dishes using whole foods, while supporting local food producers whenever possible. I am not vegetarian- and neither is my blog- and prefer keeping an open mind about all foods. But I do tend to lean towards a more environmentally-conscious eating habit.

Food is supposed to be something enjoyed with company- so please enjoy it with me! 🙂 I love when readers reach out to connect, so if you have something to say please feel free to leave a comment or write something on social. If you would like to reach out privately, I’m best reached by email. Cheers!
