Chewsy Lovers is a community for couples who love to experiment in the kitchen, and want to be inspired to create delicious family memories at home or on the go. The site was founded in 2013 by chef couple Elliot (“Buck”) and Mandi Buckner as a personal food blog, and has since grown into top resource on the web for couples like themselves, who are lovers of all things “chewsy” and delicious. Through almost 10 years of working in the hospitality industry in hotels, restaurants, casual and fine dining establishments, on top of being married and raising a young family, they have found food to be a great vehicle for building healthy relationships. Their hope through this site is to encourage other couples like themselves, to keep life sweet, the love spicy, and the dinner table simple and delicious!






Our site is for couples who want to use cooking as a fun, social experience and a chance to spend quality time with family and friends. It is for people who want to make meaningful connections over food. They are curious to try new cuisines and recreating restaurant favorites. They travel to food festivals and scout their cities and beyond for the best restaurants, most awesome food trucks, and “off the beaten path” culinary adventures.

Chewsy Lovers is for people who want to invite friends over for a memorable dinner party, enjoy a creative date night, or try a new recipe on family night. They want to learn, experiment, and improve their skills in the kitchen to impress someone special, or give Grandma’s Sweet Potato Pie a new twist.  
We truly believe the kitchen is the heart of the home. We have found food to be the perfect vehicle for building healthy relationships. We believe in the power of the dinner table…wherever that may be.
