MEET THE CHEF
I'm an entrepreneur, mom and certified Natural Chef who loves creating delicious foods curated from local farms using only whole food ingredients. I'm passionate about both the quality of ingredients and their innate functional nutritional benefits when sourced well – as well as about the power of beautiful and flavorful foods to bring people together and create memorable experiences.
Farm to Function was created to bring high-quality, nutrient-dense foods from whole ingredients to people who love food for it's flavor. So while many of our foods are great for vegans, people on a Whole 30, Paleo or Keto diet – or those who are gluten-free or dairy-free, it's most important criteria for me is that it has to be delicious enough for a foodie like me to want to enjoy it over a glass of wine with friends.
Fresh from the farmers market seasonal fruit, an assortment of local organic cheeses, organic nuts, olives, locally sourced and pasture-raised organic meats –or all Vegan.
All platters contain Farm To Function’s Cajú Cashew Dip and Forager Seeded Nut Bread, along with a side of gluten free crackers. House-made Muhammara Dip on request.
Serve as you would a hummus -- spread on baguette slices, or dip crackers and veggies. Livens up sandwiches and a great dairy-free / vegan smear for bagels and brunch toasts. Stir into pasta dishes for extra depth and creaminess, or as a base for other dairy-free creamy sauces.
Garden Herb & Garlic:

LOCAL GIFT BOXES
We scout out all the best new local Bay Area purveyors in the food, beverage and health & wellness categories.
A great way to welcome new people to the neighborhood, show clients you appreciate them or give hostess gifts that are more interesting, useful and thoughtful.
Each item in our curated gift boxes are hand selected, locally-sourced, sampled and endorsed by Natural Chef, Autumn Matli. Our curated gift boxes come beautifully packaged and temperature controlled when necessary. Shipping/delivery rates vary and are calculated at checkout.
"Chef Autumn was a joy to have in the kitchen. We hired her to run two kids cooking classes and she did an amazing job. She gave them a menu that was tasty to the palate, but challenged the students to try new things."
