If you have ever prepared a meal for anyone, you would realize how much joy there is in creating a meal for others. To see the look of obvious satisfaction on their faces are the most heartwarming and rewarding aspects of cooking. Cooking is not just about accomplishing a goal of perfecting a recipe, which in itself is quite fulfilling for the one cooking, but creating meals and satisfying not just the hunger of one’s loved ones, but making good meals that taste great for anyone “feeds” joy to both the cook and the one eating. Time spent with each other, the thought put into adjusting the recipe and creating the meal - is an effort that rewards all who feasts around the table 10x over. It is an act of love, a service done that satisfies both the stomach and the soul.
Like most great ideas, ours started small, just giving out our homemade products to friends and family. Three friends with a passion for food, got to telling stories over the dining room table, and as most great friends would do - they believed in our ability to spread happiness to more people through food, and thus pushed us to pursue this business idea.
We wanted to develop our business naturally and not push too far too quickly, to expand and cultivate the business organically. We eventually opened our doors to our friends and family, in hopes of getting honest feedback directly, in order to improve on our brand experience and our overall product offering. To our surprise, we were delighted when we saw the expression of pleasure and satisfaction on people’s faces. The experience of feeding a big group in our home filled our spirits, and inspired us to share the love with the rest of you. Like the little seed grown on fertile ground, this seed sprouted, as we partnered and collaborated with cafes and restaurants to carry our products.
