Everyone’s got a home cooking hero.
Maybe it’s your mother who managed to feed a horde of hungry kids while keeping the house clean, warm and welcoming.
Maybe it’s the single dad who can’t cook mac & cheese without burning the bottom – leaving plenty of crunchy bits to fight over – but he somehow gets food on the table every night.
Maybe it’s your 86-year-old grandma whose recipe for pot roast you’ve tried a hundred times without ever really getting it to taste like her pot roast.
Or maybe you’re the hero in the family.
To anybody who gets a nutritious, delicious, homemade meal out every night – made with whole foods (not necessarily Whole Foods) – we salute you. This blog is for you. We hope to share tips, stories and wisdom from the kitchens of home cooking heroes everywhere.
In our own family, there’s nothing more sacred, more mythic even, than the “family meal.” We always sit down at the dinner table together. Even with the arrival of our little Jude earlier this year, we still manage to eat together nearly every night.
We crave real food made with organic produce and meats, more local than global, more plants than animals, wholesome but not boring (please, not boring). We dream about elaborate seven-course dinners, but we usually end up whipping up something fast and tasty. We love to cook, but we love to eat even more.
In short, we’re a famished family – probably a lot like yours.
