Things My Family Taught Me

     We are often gifted tips, tricks and tales through our friends and family and in this section, we are thrilled to be able to share these with you. These little gifts can imprint on us as children (or any age!) and carried forward and treasured to be passed on to those we care about. Everything from more well-known tips in the kitchen such as using a wooden spoon across the top of a boiling pot to prevent it from boiling over to more experienced tricks like saving the rinds of your cheese and freezing them to add flavour to your next batch of soup, broth or stew can be super helpful to someone else. To take that last tip one step further you can even use the liquid from your container of feta or mozzarella to add extra salt and zing to your pasta sauces!

     Everything you do in your kitchen is personalized to you and your own process – that’s what makes it special. Sharing our stories and experiences through food can be one of the most heartfelt ways to spend time together. Here you can pass on your knowledge to others in your community and help to make their experiences in the kitchen easier, more fun and perhaps even help to create a memory that is passed on for generations.
