We are a team of creative thinkers who insist on living life as a multisensory experience. We believe that when we engage all our senses through touch, smell, taste, hearing, and sight, we begin to experience the full breadth of things and get the whole story.

Josette is the creative director for Venue And Menu.

Now I play with it as I want!”
