“Send me a pot of cheese, so that I may be able to indulge myself whenever I wish.” - Epicurus
Epicurus (341–270 B.C.) founded one of the major philosophies of ancient Greece, helping to lay the intellectual foundations for modern science and for secular individualism. Many aspects of his thought are still highly relevant some twenty-three centuries after they were first taught in his school in Athens, called “the Garden.” For Epicurus, the purpose of philosophy was to attain the happy, tranquil life, characterized by ataraxia, peace and freedom from fear, and aponia, the absence of pain, and by living a self-sufficient life surrounded by friends.
Centuries later, Epicurus Gourmet began in North Hollywood, California, founded by people who are passionate about great food and want to share that passion with you. Epicurus Gourmet brings the warehouse shopping experience to Los Angeles so everyone can eat and drink delicious!
