Cook From Scratch

In the ’70s we called it ‘cooking from scratch’ – cooking whole foods as opposed to the popular and then relatively new packaged foods and t.v. dinners. It’s what grandma did. We knew it tasted better. And now it’s acknowledged as a healthier, more sustainable way of eating.

Check out the Recipes tab for some whole food recipes you can prepare ‘from scratch’, mainly with ingredients from your local farmer.
