FROM SEED TO FEAST
First and foremost, we are chefs. We live and breathe cooking – but it’s also about making a difference. It’s not just about putting together good ingredients; it’s how we go about it.
Mindful cooking is simply the practice of immersing yourself in the act of cooking. To be fully present and aware of the fresh ingredients, thoughtful techniques and all of your senses, does wonders for your inner peace, but it’s also the key to cooking delicious food. We scour the globe for the best spices we can find. Grind, blend, test and then test some more to give you our farmers market approach to spices and blends accompanied by our chef tested recipes to guide you on your mindful cooking journey. We are with you from seed to feast but our goal is to help you find joy in the journey.
Spices have historically been at the center of a ruthless global trade with very little consideration for the generations of rural farmers and artisans who tend these rarefied crops. Examples being the fragrant cassia cinnamon meticulously peeled from centuries-old trees by Sumatrans in the Kerinci Valley or the wild black cumin seeds painstakingly gathered in the hinterlands of northeastern Afghanistan by mountain foragers.
The wonder and worth of single-origin spices are lost on commodity traders whose bottom line hinges on volume rather than virtue. We work with agricultural co-ops to directly source from farmers and artisans to disrupt this antiquated, cutthroat system. We pay a fair wage for freshly harvested heirloom spices that express their unique terroir through potent aroma, unmatched flavor, and vibrant color.
We hope that when you try spices this fresh, you won’t be able to wait to get cooking.
