Foodies Unite: The Meaning Behind the Name

Hi everyone!

We’re so excited that you’re taking some time to learn about us. For our second post, Chef John and I wanted to explain the meaning behind our business name, and how it encourages us to bring the best experiences to our clients. Our name isn’t just a name; it’s a personalized illustration of who we are and what we love to do. My husband and I have many things in common, but the one that stands out the most has always been our love for food.

John and I both love to cook, and we especially love to cook for others. We make our recipes over and over until they’re perfect — sometimes, it can even seem a little obsessive! But a healthy obsession is what makes you fluent in the things you do. In the dictionary, to be fluent is to express oneself easily and articulately. Because my husband and I express ourselves the most vividly through our love of food, our name seemed obvious: Fords Fluent N’ Food.

We don’t think food, is just something to eat: we believe it’s a passion that can bring people together. When family and friends come over for our dinner parties, we always make sure to create a personalized menu. Chef John spends time thinking about what he wants to make, and we toss ideas around between the two of us until we feel confident that we have the best selections for our guests. John has been making menus for years to meet the needs of clients and guests — his knack for making tailored menus helps add a curated flair to parties, events, and even casual dinners. The dishes he imagines complement each other to become a delicious spread of amazing, fresh food that people can’t stop talking about!

The idea for Fords Fluent N’ Food started years ago. I thought about starting our own business often because I knew how talented Chef John was, and I knew he would do his best work when he was bringing clients together with his creativity. No matter what anyone said about the difficulty of taking this path, I knew it would happen one day — and it did! The vision I imagined for so long became a reality three months ago, and we never looked back. The Fords are Fluent N’ Food.

We are fortunate to use our passion and creativity to celebrate our clients’ special events every day. It is the best feeling in the world when our clients hug us and tell us we have made their special occasion extra memorable. People will always remember how good the food is! We are beyond excited to see what’s in store for the future.

Always cook from the heart,

Natasha Ford
