The Butler's Kitchen – Launches September 4, 2020
Where There’s Nothing Left Off The Table
The Butler’s Kitchen addresses ground breaking controversial topics that aren’t easily discussed between various diverse communities, especially of color. Topics range from social injustices, local and national politics, relationships; both from the homo and heterosexual perspective, dating/online dating, social media controversies to whatever event or topic that creates challenging thought provoking conversations. Our goal is to not only bring these topics to the forefront however, to discuss next steps etc.
Jhahbriel C. Moore-Butler creates an atmosphere in his kitchen with panel guest from all walks of life. The panel comes together weekly around the kitchen island creating an open dialogue introducing their perspectives from a view point that creates a bit of energy, borderline drama each taping.
As each conversation develops, delicious home cooked meals are prepared that add a sense of home, an atmosphere open for opinionated conversation. Most of the ingredients within the meals will be highlighted as solutions, pivoted off the conversation as added anecdotes of humor and/or comedy.
The Butler’s Kitchen, under the umbrella of Moore 4U Inc. where everything is about the community and how communities are built from mentoring and giving. So sit back, grab a drink and join us in our Kitchen
