Honeysuckle represents the evolution of the food that has been a part of and sustained the embodiment of the black experience in America. Honeysuckle seeks to remove the framing of what soul/southern food is and to utilize the ingredients therein as tools and colors instead of cemented ideals.
These ingredients as tools frees them from expected standards and allows for improvisation and creativity. Improvisation has been one of the defining qualities of the black identity and imagination in that it has allowed for escape, freedom, art, and an individual aesthetic. Honeysuckle looks to agriculture as the nurturing foundation of this improvisation.
Honeysuckle seeks its patrons to appreciate the artistic sensibilities of African American heritage and culture through food while simultaneously promoting the ideals of farming, sustainability and local economies through the lens of the perspective of the modern African American.
